What is the most important thing in your homeschool day?

The most important thing in our homeschool day is making sure the Bible time happens.

Bible time, at this point, consists of one-on-one time with each child (only the older three boys). We are using Bob Jones Bible (1, 4, and 5)  and we are loving it. I love sitting with the kids and working through their scripture studies. We are all learning so much and enjoying it. It still takes us awhile to get through our work, but we are getting the hang of it. None of the kids can work independently at this point so each lesson involves mom walking them through it (and for Elisha, leaving him to finish on his own – this is progress). We take our time, we chat, we are learning so much.

Someone made a comment recently that maybe we should start with something more important like math or English, so we don’t spend all day doing Bible. I felt slightly guilty, but then my resolve strengthened and I responded that there is nothing more important than my children knowing the Word of God and the reasons for our faith. It is my job to train them about God and His Word more than it is my job to have them know everything about math or English. Not to mention the fact that the official school year has not even begun here yet and we are using materials that are very new to us.

I prayed long and hard over the materials that I chose this year and I thoroughly researched them. I know in my heart that I made the right choices for our family. I also know that starting with the Word is the most important thing for us. And, you know what, if all we get done is the Word each day, that’s okay, too.

  1. Bible is definitely the most important part! :D We do it first thing in the day. We also have our own Bible reading time as well. :D

    1. Hi Sherry,

      That’s great that Bible is the most important thing in your day too. We have not set up individual Bible reading times yet, but hopefully soon.


  2. We all raise our children the best way we know how and for some people, maybe math is the most important subject, to others English, but to your home its the bible so that’s what you begin each day with, makes sense to me!
    I’m glad you quit feeling guilty because no one knows your child better than you :)

    1. Hi Jenn,

      Thanks for reading and taking the time to comment. I agree that we are all going to do the things which we feel will most benefit our children and our families. I need to keep that in mind.
