HOME / Weekly Lessons
The homeschool parent needs a quiet time to spend in prayer and in God's Word. This could be before children are awake, or after they are asleep or during the mid-day nap and quiet times. An hour when the whole house is quiet is desirable.
As you pray, read scripture, and journal (writing a response and affirmation of what you are reading and studying), God will show you a scripture for the day, a prayer of the day, hymns or songs, and a Bible story.
This is your preparation time in God's presence. Do this every day and you will be blessed and your children will know God, know His plan, and walk with Him.
