Are you trying to get a full lesson done each day? Why? Slow things down and remember this is just a tool. Try watching the video one day and completing the assignment the next, or watch a portion of the video one day and the rest the next. Use the rewind whenever needed. You don't have to finish a complete lesson every day. I like to say, “Teach to learn the lesson, not to get to the next lesson.” If it takes three days, then take that time to work on the lesson—it’s okay. The videos are tools to come alongside you, not to rule you. The Distance Learning teachers are there to assist you. You know your children, so make adjustments to fit their needs. Also, it’s okay to do open book tests once in a while. That will serve as an encouragement if they are struggling through a difficult stage.

Social media provides a valuable and informative channel for the HomeWorks team to stay in touch with our homeschool families. As we read through different social media newsfeeds, we are always excited and encouraged by the experiences and successes shared by our homeschool families about BJU Press materials. We especially enjoy meeting your families at conventions and hearing from your own children how much they love the materials and how they are grasping new concepts.

The dictionary tells us that love is “an intense feeling of deep affection.” My cell phone, when asked, tells me that love is a “deep, tender, ineffable feeling of affection and solitude.” Shakespeare tells us love is blind and love is a spirit. All of these definitions tell us that love is about how we feel about something. I, for example, love my husband, children, grandson, and family. I love to sit in the sunshine on a warm sunny day. I love good, edifying music and spending time with my friends and family. I love to see people growing in Christ. I love to see a child learn. But again, these are feelings that I have.

Teaching is counted as a spiritual gift (Romans 12:7), but the Bible also tells us to display integrity and gravity in our teaching (Titus 2:7)—that we take it seriously. Our children deserve teachers who are learning and growing. Whether we consider ourselves a great teacher or a terrible one, there are many ways we can build up our “professional” skills.

Keeping a calendar with a meal plan can be a lifesaver! When the day has been busy with schoolwork, music lessons, and church activities, the last thing we need to be doing is standing in front of the refrigerator at 5:00 trying to figure out what to make for dinner. Freezer meals, crockpot meals, and a regular rotation of meals can make life much less stressful.

Do you find yourself standing at the refrigerator at 4:30 or 5:00 in the afternoon trying to figure out what to fix for dinner? I got tired of that happening, so I decided to take action to fix the problem, beginning with making sure I had the necessary supplies.

How do you find time to serve and give to others in your community? We didn’t choose to homeschool because we wanted to be secluded from our community; we simply wanted to provide an excellent and wholesome education for our children. We sought out community activities and ways to volunteer and serve too.

It’s the Christmas season—nearly every business is decorated and church buildings display some type of signage to reflect the season. From special sales and Santa sightings to Christmas programs and gingerbread, the general population is aware that it’s the most wonderful time of the year. But something struck me yesterday as I was driving down the street. It was a very understated sign that read, Immanuel: God with us. We see words like “Joy to the World” and “Hark the Herald Angels Sing” everywhere during December, but the words “God with us” made me stop and think.

A few years ago, I tried my very first distance learning online class. At the time I thought it was a little expensive, but I was desperate. I had four homeschool students plus a toddler, and was not at 100% health. Did I mention that one of those children was significantly behind because of hearing loss and I was doing speech therapy almost three hours a day with him and the toddler? I spent the money and purchased just one subject—Reading 2—for Samuel, the child who was struggling with reading. I was willing to spend the money because I knew no matter how busy my life was or what kinds of problems we were having, that child HAD to progress in reading before he realized he was behind.

Let’s talk writing! Most homeschooling families realize the value of teaching their children to write, but have a difficult time finding good resources that meet their needs and that their children enjoy using. BJU Press curriculum begins the writing process in Grade 2 with Grammar and Writing textbooks, and continues all the way through high school. In addition, writing activities are included with Spelling and also in the secondary level of Grades 7-12 Literature. Many writing tools offered by BJU Press can be combined with any writing program you are considering.
