Homeschool Failure - A Firm Foundation

That firm foundation is the Word of God that will never pass away. Assign as many of your visionary inspirations as possible to Scripture, such as the ones listed below. You compilation of verses will serve as a motivation, as well as effective ammunition against any doubt as to why you should continue homeschooling.


Deuteronomy 6:6-9 “These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.”

Matthew 5:13-16
"You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men. You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven."

I have kept my feet from every evil path so that I might obey your word. I have not departed from your laws, for you yourself have taught me.
