I’d like to thank our sponsor, Sony Pictures –Sony Pictures Animation along with Affirm Films. We are thankful to our sponsors for allowing you the listener to enjoy the benefits of free programming.
Welcome back for part 2 of how to be a Proverbs 31 homeschool mom. If you missed last week’s episode, you’ll definitely want to listen to it first. I hope you claimed your printable Bible study that goes along with this episode. There is another printable ready for you this week too.
Before we complete our study, though, I want to recommend the book, The Organized Homeschool Life. With ideas for getting organized 15 minutes at a time, the book can help you become the Proverbs 31 homeschool mom you aspire to be.
Teaching Tip of the Week
The teaching tip of the week is to take regular breaks to get organized and back on track. Every month, plan to take a day to file, plan, and make your school space neat again. You can have your kids watch educational videos, play games, play outside, or even better, have a play date at a friend’s house. You can return the favor and give your friend a break day. Set a timer for each task and you’ll accomplish so much more. If you make your break day the same day of the month (like the first Friday), it will be more likely to happen for you. The key is to take this time without guilt. You need a day to recollect yourself. It’s better to take a regular, planned day than to take one because you’re stressed. These spur-of-the-moment days aren’t nearly as productive as those that are planned. Put your break day on the calendar now.
Again, we are thankful to our sponsor! In their new movie you will…see the birth of Jesus through a whole new set of eyes. In Sony Pictures Animation and AFFIRM Film’s THE STAR, Bo the donkey and his animal friends become unlikely heroes in the first Christmas. Featuring an uplifting soundtrack, THE STAR will give families a fresh and fun look at the Christmas story. The Star – The Story of the first Christmas will be in theatres on November 17th… be sure to visit the movie trailer so you can see if it is a good fit for your family.
my guest post on The Musings of Mum.
work that was marked complete in the student planner wasn’t actually done
the sacrifice I have made to homeschool them
those who don’t believe in homeschooling
To conclude our study, I believe that we are Proverbs 31 homeschooling moms if we believe we are. Begin each day considering what you did the day before that is consistent with your identity as this godly woman. Consider how you will earnestly take on your work as a Proverbs 31 homeschooling mom today. Know that we can do nothing apart from Him. But in His strength, we can be more than we ever imagined.
Which of these characteristics of a Proverbs 31 homeschool mom are you already making progress on?
