My 5 Best Homeschool Curriculum
Choosing Tips 

#1: Serves You and Does Not Leave You Depleted
If you are finding that you are overwhelmed with multiple steps, activities, preparation steps, or expenses, your curriculum is no longer serving you, but you may have now, become its servant. It should be used as a tool that helps you to inspire and teach your children. It should give you peace, and not stress. 


#2: Inspires and Ignites Wonder: Leaves you Wanting More
Your curriculum should ignite your child’s interest, allowing for them to have room to think, reflect, and investigate the questions, and new ideas they come across.


#3: Brings your thoughts to the Father in Heaven. Creates room for reflection of our Great Creator.
The curriculum you choose, should set up an atmosphere of reflection upon our Creator, our Father in heaven, from Whom “all things consist”. (Colossians 1: 16-17)

It should give us a continual desire to learn more of Him, and inspire awe, and wonder in the Creator of the universe, as well as a desire to know and walk with Him.

#4: Does not Drain Your Pockets/Leading to Dependency on Multiple Parts
Your curriculum should not leave you dependent on several “moving parts”. It should not force you to “have to have” specific pieces for the curriculum to work. Ideally, it should be Non-consumable/Re-usable, and require only simple components needed for a new student (ie. Notebook/Blank tests etc..)

#5: Leaves you and your Family Better Than You Were Before
The best and ideal curriculum, promotes growth in mind, and in spirit, leaving you a much better, and improved person than you were before.
