Mom’s Mission Statement
As mom and teacher, my personal homeschooling verse is Psalm 32:8. This is what I lean on when those deflating thoughts start creeping in. “I’m so frustrated…this is too difficult…today was too hard…I can’t do this!” This verse realigns my mind and heart.
I am equipped. And He is there guiding me along.
Psalm 32:8 “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.”
Our Homeschool Mission Statement
“We are lifelong learners building knowledge based on fun. We will give thanks to God every day for His blessings to do so. We will take every opportunity to strengthen our family bond by doing life and school together, to build character and strengthen individual attributes, and most importantly, to instill an understanding of God and His Word to encourage and foster a love of Christ. Our children will feel loved, safe and confident in our home environment. We will explore individual interests to encourage a career path they will truly enjoy. We will take advantage of the opportunities and freedom to apply lessons by traveling and exploring places that relate to our studies. We will not waste this gift of homeschooling we have been given.”
A mission statement is made to be used. You will need reminders of why you’re doing this amazing task put before you. You will need encouragement during the rough days…weeks even. Keep your mission statement handy, here’s a few ways how:
- Make it big and pretty, and frame it for your school room.
- Tape it inside your planner.
- Add it to your prayer time.
- Talk about it often, with friends and family.
- Review it every few months and see if you need to make changes or additions.
- Put it on a coffee mug – I mean, you know you have one attached to your hand at any time during the day, might as well keep it front and center 🙂
So, homeschooling momma, you can do this! Put pen to paper, and write out your homeschooling goals, dreams, aspirations, reasons why this is important to you and your family! You will meet a variety of critics on your journey (including ourselves…), and your mission statement will be there to help keep you steady and firm on your homeschool path.
