One of the greatest freedoms afforded to homeschooling families is the ability to incorporate the subjects we find most important into our daily curriculum. However, it’s important not to approach Bible study as just another class. Bible study is arguably the most important subject your children will study, and it is not a subject to be dropped after graduation. Modeling a lifelong practice of Bible study, reflection, and prayer can start with simple family devotions that include even the very youngest children. In this Homeschool Living, you’ll find Bible study resources and tips for Bible verse memorization to help you make the most of your family Bible study.
