One of the things that we love to do in our home is talk scripture. Anyone who knows us, knows that you really CAN’T be in our home for any length of time without talking scripture.
The thing that has been on my heart this year with homeschooling is our bible curriculum.
Over the years, we’ve made our own. On a 5 year rotation we study:
- heroes of the faith (choosing 36 people from the scriptures to look at, one a week)
- overview of the Old Testament, complete with timeline (following the book Charts of the Old Testament – a GREAT resource!)
- the inter-testament period and the teachings of Jesus
- the New Testament church
- overview of church history from NT to present
The thing that I’ve come to see that was lacking in our curriculum was Major Doctrines of the Faith.
This fall, we are studying those major doctrines, and we are starting from the Apostle’s Creed. I’m excited to see what kinds of conversations and study in the Word this will bring up. And I’m excited to see our younger children step up to join us in our biblical discussions.
