Homeschooling Without Comparing
If you’ve read any of my blog posts here you’ve heard me say that you are uniquely created by God, and so is your family. Why do we think, then, that our home, family, and Homeschool are going to look like someone else’s, when everything about us is unique? Why do we compare? Maybe because we want to get it perfect, and we keep trying what someone else is doing, worrying that we’ll miss out on something. But, that leads to frustration and discouragement. Do you feel like you’re all over the place, trying to do All. The. Things? Read on, because to Homeschool Without Comparing, Copying, or Coveting, requires confidence, not in ourselves, but in God!

If I am uniquely created by God, and my family is unique, why do I think I must compare, copy, and covet others’ Homeschools and lives?
Homeschooling without comparing, copying, or coveting is only done by God’s grace, in the power of the Holy Spirit. If we have been accustomed to knowing we are uniquely created by God growing up, being led by the Holy Spirit, dying to our flesh, taking up our cross, as we lived under our parents’ authority and in their home, it will be much easier as adults to Homeschool our children that way.
Our children will copy us–it’s inevitable. Will that example be something they spend the rest of their lives trying to overcome, or will it make them soar ahead with spiritual strength and success in every area?
Moms, are you listening? This is another reason why you are so important. We are not perfect. We’re still growing in Christ as we Homeschool. As God works on us, and we work on ourselves, attempting to live, love, and Homeschool without comparing, copying, and coveting, we are impacting our kids, who are watching us, and copying us, but this is a GOOD copying!
Our children will copy us. They will follow our example–it’s inevitable. Do we want it to be one they are trying to overcome for the rest of their lives, or will it enable them to so much more easily follow and obey the Lord? We want their copying us to lead to spiritual success, and success in so many ways. That’s why it’s so important that we work at learning How to Homeschool without comparing, copying, or coveting.
