Homeschooling: What’s the Message?

This post contains affiliate links.

We send oodles of messages as homeschoolers:
  • The national message: We CAN do it, so there ha!
  • The state message: We CAN legally do it, so there ha!
  • The local message: We ARE socialized, would you like me to help you with your groceries, Ma’am?

But today, I’m thinking a little more closely to home.  Actually, I am thinking:  home, itself.

What messages are we sending our children?  What messages am I sending my children?

Although I struggle with consistency in sending the right message, here are a few sticky-notes of message ponderings that I ponder from time to time.

What messages are we sending our children …

 

About Homeschoolingabout educationAbout diligence About laughterAbout loveabout the lostabout historyAbout integrityAbout math

 

about God

All of these are important messages to ponder.  But the one that seems to encompass them all:

Are we sending our children the message of God’s Word?

It’s value, it’s import, it’s ever-never-changing-ness? It’s stability in an unstable world?

Of all the messages we send our children – and we send them so very many it’s humbling – let’s be sure we are sending them His message, His Word.

God will be there when the baby birds leave the nest, our own communication limited to short bursts of tweet wisdom rather than epic birdsongs of instruction.

And He will be there when the mama bird sings no more.

So let’s ponder our messages, our song.

Let’s speak, sing, tweet and send our messages and His!

Bye for now,

    Beautiful!
    PS I love your images and your new look! You are leaving a WAKE behind you you are learning so quickly. 🙂

  2. Ooooh! It’s nice to know there is some a-wake-ing going’ on! 🙂 That’s the second time this week someone referred to our lives leaving WAKES. The first time was in Bible study … how we should be thankful for the wakes, but not compare our wakes to another’s (hard to do when launching a new boat) and also not get precoccupied with our own wakes, but keeping our eyes fixed on the WakeMaker Himself. To God be the glory!
