A Homeschool Devotional for Mothers by Homeschoolers
By the Grace of God, Homeschooling One Child exists to encourage others in the Christian faith primarily and secondly, in homeschooling. For a long time, I've wanted to write a devotional for homeschooling moms, but the task was too daunting.
So I'm reaching out to my friends in the homeschooling community to write up to five devotionals for this book.
Each contributor will receive five free copies; but if a contributor has an online store or sells at conventions and would like more, a box (quantity to be determined) will be made available at a significantly reduced price (mainly to cover my cost and shipping; cost to be determined), so you can resell them.
This is a massive undertaking but it's doable with the Grace and Provision of Christ and the incredible talents of homeschooling moms, bloggers, content creators, and others.
Each devotional should be in this format:
Each devotional should be between 500-750 words. The deadline for submissions is January 3, 2024. Although submissions are more than welcome before that! The book will go to press in February 2024.
This will be an actual printed book that will also be available on Amazon (so there's potential for affiliate links for bloggers and content creators). There will be a list of contributors in it. I'm looking forward to working with my homeschooling friends to make this encouraging book a success.
To contribute, please email me your devotionals in a Word document (one document is perfectly fine) to Terrie@Homeschooling1Child.com.
"Teach what is good" comes from Titus 2:3-4:
"Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children..."
It is encouraging to me, personally, when an older lady gives me advice or encouragement. Now that I'm in my 50s, I find that I am that "older lady" to generations under me, so it is my duty as a Christian to go along with younger women and encouragement them, as I've been encouraged.
