Homeschool: Inward vs Outward

Kristo made my eyes sweat (a bit) today….

When you’re a  homeschool mom (or dad), there are days when you’re at wits end, then there are days when it’s so obvious that homeschooling is one of the best decisions you’ve ever made. Today was one of those amazing days!

For Bible and Character, Kristo and I talked about how God doesn’t look at what man usually does — the external. Rather, God looks at the heart. I told him about the story of King Saul, Samuel and King David.

After the Bible story Kristo stood up and went up to his papa and said “I know the lesson of the story! If you have a clean and obedient heart, God will choose you. If you have a dirty heart and surrender and say to the Lord “Take my life and help me God” He will say “Come my child.” then he will help you.

Just hearing that made me cry a bit. Kristo gets it! HE GETS IT! 🙂

As soon as he saw me, he hugged me. I am so glad that his papa and I have front row seats to moments like this. Learning time suddenly becomes a wonderful family memory. 🙂

See, this is what I love about homeschool, it isn’t all just about academics. More than that it’s discipleship and really training your child’s heart.

Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it. — Proverbs 22:6 (NIV)
