Homeschooling our Many Blessings through this Beautiful Mess
Teaching Children Biblical Truths
Tiffany and Laura talk briefly about what they do at home and in church to teach their own children the truths in the Bible.
As parents we are the ones responsible for teaching our children. Daily we should speak the truths of the gospel to our children through parenting and everyday life.
Deuteronomy 6:6-7 says…..
“And these words I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.”
Up until now, Tiffany’s has just read short stories in their children’s bible to her little ones which has brought forth good discussions. They have also expounded on the meanings and reasons they celebrate certain holidays such as Christmas and Easter. These little efforts to help answer the million questions children ask will provide her children with a better understanding of their faith. Tiffany has also signed her kids up for Awana at a local church that gives them fun incentives for learning scripture!
Laura has struggled with the right way to incorporate Bible into their homeschool day up until a few weeks ago. She has made it a point to start every homeschool day with scripture memorization, catechisms, and prayer! She has come to learn that this is what her kids look forward to most. They are memorizing their scripture and catechisms with little to no effort and enjoying locating scripture in their Bibles. Here is the few things she uses:
Last but never the least, Starting your day with prayer will create a healthy habit of coming before the Lord with humility. Your children will understand the importance of your need for God’s help in each and every moment of the day.
Enjoy your many blessings this week!

The IF Gathering bible study, Not Alone. Laura is really coming to understand what the bible says about friendship and what a true biblical friendship looks like. However, she has shed light on the need to make time with the Lord a priority first before her friendships. Laura is loving this bible study and how it has opened her eyes to how God is in every minute detail of her life, even friendships. Check out the Not Alone trailer….
Tiffany is diggin an app that she just rediscovered… Marco Polo! With this app you can send short video clips and talk back and forth with friends and family. It’s great because you get to see the other person’s real life and what’s going on along with facial expressions and tone of voice, but you don’t have to find a time that is convenient for everyone. You just record a message when it’s convenient for you and the other person responds when it’s convenient for them. It’s SO great for when Robert is away because Tiffany and the kiddos can still talk to him on video chat, but when it’s convenient for both sides! Tiffany gets to talk to Robert so much more now with Marco Polo!
