Many of these Bible verses can apply to more than one area of our lives, but I especially love how encouraging they are when applied to our lives as homeschooling parents.

Bible Verses for the Homeschool Heart

Before we jump into to this list of scriptures for our homeschool hearts, you’ll want to open your YouVersion app or grab your Bible and maybe a pen and noteboook. The nature of a list like this means these verses aren’t in context and you’ll want to dig into the chapters and verses around each scripture. After all, context is always crucial for applying God’s Word to our lives.

Also, I noted the specific translation I used for each scripture. I encourage you to look them up in your favorite translations if yours aren’t listed here.  Now that all of that’s out of the way, I hope you’ll find these Bible verses as uplifting and reassuring as you’re loving, guiding, and teaching your children.
