Tips for Successful Homeschooling Book List

Dishing Up Devotions

First and foremost, covering your homeschool in prayer is truly your best strategy. I find that having a prayer guide or devotional to use (both for myself, and for my kids!) can be a great way to stay accountable and remind me to draw near to the Lord throughout the day.

The book Dishing Up Devotions by Katie J. Trent is a tool that every homeschool mama should have in her back pocket. Not only does it contain bite-sized, relatable devotions, but each lesson is tied to a recipe you can bake with your kids (a.k.a., Home Economics class).

My girls and I have already made some priceless memories baking together and making meaningful, lasting connections to God’s Word.
