If you are a homeschooling mom, you know that it can be difficult to stay motivated some days. The challenges of teaching your children at home can be overwhelming at times. That’s why I’ve put together this collection of Christian homeschool quotes to encourage and inspire you! These quotes will remind you why you chose to homeschool your children, and they will give you the motivation to keep going when things get tough!
I loved homeschooling my kids and wouldn’t trade those years for anything. I can’t say I was an amazing teacher, but I certainly had amazing kids. And God’s grace and mercy is ever abundant for those hard days and those hard years.
Homeschooling gave me the opportunity to instill in my children the love of learning, rather than just teaching them to learn. To me, homeschooling is about training my children’s hearts to love God and others, rather than just teaching their minds to accumulate facts.
Today I am incredibly proud of the young adults my kids have become. I hope these Christian homeschool quotes and Bible verses will help you stay strong during your homeschool journey!
