Encourage a Homeschooling Mom Today

Homeschooling can be a very rewarding journey, but at times, the mothers who invest in their children’s education can feel discouraged, inadequate, or anxious about their children. May I suggest something to encourage them?

  1. Tell them that you appreciate what they are doing for their children.
  2. Treat them to some self-care time (a spa gift certificate; watching their children for an afternoon while they do something they enjoy; arrange with hubby a surprise girls’ getaway)
  3. Pray for them regularly. Ask what their specific prayer requests are and pray with them.
  4. Make yourself available to listen to them and be a friend.
  5. If she is struggling with negative thought patterns, consider buying my devotional book  Stress-free Homeschooling: 31 Days to a Healthier Way of Thinking. It will help her to focus on the truths of God’s Word instead of the lies that she is being tempted to believe.

“Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.” 1 Thessalonians 5:11
