Well Grounded in God’s Word, Mama

The Bible resource we use is . . . the Bible. As soon as our kids can read Genesis 1:1, they get their own large print Bible and off we go! This is the most important textbook in our homeschool. Here are just seven reasons why.

1. Important for Our Conviction for Homeschooling 

What do you say when people ask why you homeschool? Do your children know the Biblical reasons they are homeschooling? Teach them those Scriptures so they would have an answer for everyone that asks. 

Here are a few Scriptures to get you started: II Corinthians 6:17, Galatians 6:14, Colossians 2:8, Philippians 2:15-17, Jeremiah 10:2, II Peter 1:3-4, Proverbs 13:20, Isaiah 38:19, Ephesians 6:4, Psalm 78, Genesis 18:19, Psalm 127:1, II Corinthians 6:14-18, Galatians 6:14, and Proverbs 1:7-8.

2. Important for Our Conviction for How We Live 

Do your children know why or why they are not allowed to do what this culture is doing? Have you taught them the Biblical reasons you stand on to make your choices? They need to have a firm foundation of Scripture to stand on when the pressure comes. 

3. Important for the Teacher 

Are you prepared to teach Truth daily? Do you meet the Biblical standard for a teacher? You cannot teach what you haven’t studied—yet the Bible IN the teacher is what gives her wisdom. 

“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (II Timothy 2:15).

4. Important for the Student 

Are your children prepared for life and godliness? To battle sin and defeat the enemy? Scripture prepares them for a lifetime of victory.

5. Important for Spiritual Health 

Our sustenance for life is found in the Word of God. It is not just a book or a subject but a banquet for maintaining spiritual health. We must feed ourselves and our children a healthy spiritual diet. If we don’t eat, we starve to death. 

“Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live” (Isaiah 55:3).

6. Important for National Health 

His Word is the Good News—that treasure this world is searching for! Our national health depends on our obedience to His command to pray, repent, and preach the gospel (Mark 16:15). 

7. As Important as Life and Death 

Is God’s Word hidden in our children’s hearts that they might not sin against God? Are they prepared for life and death? How about the teacher? 

This mother-teacher is with you in re-prioritizing the Word of God in my home and homeschool!  



Deborah WuehlerDeborah Wuehler is the Senior Editor and Director of Production here at The Old Schoolhouse® Magazine. She would say she is a very ordinary homeschool mom–with one exception: she has an extraordinary God Who provides all she needs for life and homeschooling. She has eight children aged 11 to 29. Deborah’s mission is this: to point other homeschoolers to the Lord in all they do, think, and feel—and to confirm that they, too, can find everything they need for life, godliness, and homeschooling in their knowledge of Him (2 Peter 1:3-4).
