These are unprecedented times. So many parents are being thrown into schooling-from-home with little to no direction. We’ve shared before in episode 30 some general ideas and suggestions for homeschooling, so we’re not going to unpack all of that today. But we would like to dive deeper into one particular part of homeschooling that we believe is the foundation for what all the rest of our child’s education and really their very lives is built upon.

Today, we’re talking about Morning Time. Some folks prefer to call it Morning Basket, Morning Meeting, others who maybe choose to slot it at other times in the day instead of the morning have been known to call it Symposium or Power Hour. No matter what you call it, if you’ve been homeschooling for any length of time, you definitely know that it’s a current buzzword in homeschooling circles. It seems that everyone has caught the fever.

“I can’t fix their mood. But I know Jesus can.”

September McCarthy

If the anthropologists are correct and we really do become like the people we spend the most time with, let’s spend more time with Jesus. Morning Time is one way that we can do that with our entire family.

Right now, most of us have no excuses. Our calendars are cleared, at least for now. May we all come out of this quarantine a little more like Him. In that way, we’ll be redeeming the time.

  1. Thank you so much for this podcast episode! As a mom of a 5-year-old and 3-year-old, I have been wondering how I can implement some of these beautiful morning time plans I see other moms doing. I have felt discouraged and overwhelmed as I look at other, more seasoned teachers and moms on the Internet and social media for guidance. So THANK YOU for reminding me that it is ok to keep my focus on what is most important (spiritual formation) and not do the “extra”—especially right now! I feel I have a workable plan, finally, and I feel a huge burden has been lifted!

    1. We’re so glad the episode was helpful for you! Thank you for sharing that. May God bless you and the time you spend with your littles cultivating a love for God and His Word.
