Are You Homeschooling with the End in Mind?

Before the 2015-2016 school year began, I attended a session at a homeschool convention entitled Homeschooling with the End in Mind by Jenni and Jody.  They posed an important question at the beginning of their seminar that we should all ask ourselves.  “Whose race is it?”

The answer is that it is our children in the race, not us.  Our job is to guide them through the race so that they can achieve the prize.
And what is that prize?  Well that is something that we must all ask ourselves.  Why did we choose to home school is just the tip of the iceberg.

For me, my mind goes to I Corinthians 9:24-27 to the incorruptible crown of eternal life.  However, my mind also goes to Philippians 3:14 “I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”  What is the “prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus”?  We must go to God and ask Him, "What is your calling for my child?"

In your process I suggest you check out Identity and Destiny for Amazing Kids by Dr. Libby Hodge.  Dr. Hodge holds her Doctorate of Pastoral Counseling from Chesapeake Bible College and Seminary. Dr Libby is a Licensed Facilitator for Identity and Destiny and is certified through the American Association of Christian Counselors for Pastoral Counseling. She serves as Children’s Ministry Director for Connection Church in Hinesville, GA.  What I like most about the Identity and Destiny for Amazing Kids books (they have a version for adults as well) is that they remind us that God created us uniquely and wants to tell us the “prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus”.

Dr. Hodge will be one of the features of the very first South Cobb Homeschool Resource Fair.  South Cobb Homeschoolers have partnered with the South Cobb Regional Library's Children Department to coordinate this awesome event.  Mark your calendars for January 26, 2016 from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. for the fair at the South Cobb Regional Library located at 805 Clay Road, Mableton, GA 30126.
