In the midst of winter, we begin to look forward to longer and brighter days, the first green shoots of grass, and the colors of the daffodils and crocus as they begin their new cycle of life. As Christians, we look forward to the celebration of what I look at as THE most important event in the history of the world—the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus. Some Christian denominations mark the approach of Easter with the observance of Lent, just as many observe the season of Advent leading up to Christmas.
With all that we do as homeschooling parents, it is so easy to overlook the obvious in the midst of the day’s most pressing fires. Consider setting a few simple goals as we approach this season that is so important to our Christian faith. Perhaps this month focus on having everyone learn the Lord’s Prayer or Psalm 23. Building faith in our children is what I consider to be our most important mission here on earth as parents. Teach them, taking it one step at a time.
