A Clear Vision for a New Year


Do you take time to re-evaluate your homeschool plans and progress at the start of a new year?  What about your own personal goals?

As homeschool parents, we’re called upon to give so much of ourselves on a daily basis.  I think most of us would agree that we do this gladly (for the most part), yet there has to be a way to refill our own depleted resources from time to time.

One of the ways I keep my focus, both personally and in homeschooling, is to choose one word to represent the new year.  I’ve also written about three other ways to keep your focus, which includes choosing a motto or Bible verse for your homeschool. This kind of thing can serve as a reminder of why we do what we do, even when the going gets tough.  Sometimes we need to be our own cheering section! Having a clear vision of the task at hand and the road before us can help.

Some of our team writers have chosen one word for the new year and we’d like to share those with you as a source of encouragement.

Do you choose one word, one Bible verse, or a motto for your homeschool or your own personal reflection for the year? Please share in the comments.

I'm a reader, writer, dreamer, wife, and homeschooling mom of 3 girls. We take a relaxed, eclectic, Charlotte Mason-leaning, Montessori-ish, literature-rich, delight-directed, almost unschooling-at-times approach to learning. Lots of unit studies, field trips, and lapbooks, too. I like to blog about our learning adventures (plus faith and encouragement) at Embracing Destiny.
