Books We Recommend About Homeschooling

As we continue to mention, we love to read and believe that through reading edifying materials we are only sharpened and made stronger as Christian in our callings.  Paul is our example when he asks for his scrolls in II Tim 4:13. :)

The Word of God
You wouldn’t think we would start listing books on homeschooling without first referencing the one book that is our inerrant, infallible, holy inspired Word of God which is our only rule of faith and practice.  And yes, as we seek to be thoroughly equipped for every good work, we must look to the Word of God and always test all other books and teachings against it.  We encourage you to start with Deuteronomy 6:1-7 and Proverbs 1:1-7.

We love this book as it gets to the heart of the issue – why we homeschool our children. We do not homeschool our kids to make better or smarter kids, but rather as the most faithful way to raise our children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
Not only was Chris Clicka an integral player in working to preserve our freedoms to homeschool, but he was also a man that understand why we do it. This book as well gets to the heart of homeschooling and provides solid encouragement to parents either getting started or continuing a successful homeschooling program.
Although not specifically addressed to only homeschoolers, Kevin Swanson addresses 10 integral principles that define a successful education. We truly love all the resources by Kevin Swanson!
The book of Proverbs is a great place to start – the textbook that God Himself provided for the education of a child – integral to the education of a child and discipleship of a family. The Proverbs starts off reminding the parent that all education starts off with the fear of the Lord. We use these volumes daily in our family worship/devotions and highly recommend them to your family!
