One of the great benefits of homeschooling is that it causes us to depend on the Lord! As we face difficult situations or discouragement, it causes us to go to Him to seek His wisdom. The best thing you can do is claim some Scripture to help you and encourage you. Here are 20 encouraging Bible verses for homeschooling moms, compiled from my favorite verses for strength and encouragement on my 31 year homeschool journey.
