Getting Started
What a blessing you've received from God as He leads you to teach your own children! We'd like to give you some help in your quest for information on homeschooling and getting started.

Above all else pray and follow the leading of God. He will continue to be faithful in assisting you and your family as you get started with your homeschooling adventure. You may want to start with these Scriptures during this important step!

Each state has its own regulations for homeschooling. Find out what your state's homeschooling laws and regulations are. Contact the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA - write: P.O. Box 3000, Purcellville, VA 20134 or call: (540) 338-5600). Get in touch with one of your state's homeschool associations or a local homeschool support group. (HSLDA has a list of some for each state.) 

Watch your local newspaper for announcements of homeschool events sponsored by local support groups. Take the time to read some of the wonderful books written about homeschooling. 

Check your local library for these books doing a subject search on "home schooling" or by checking in sections 371.3 or 649 PAR. There are so many great homeschooling books available now to help get you started that it is difficult to name the best. Checking what is available at your library or local bookstore is a quick way to get reading. 

Start researching homeschool curriculum companies and ordering their catalogs. Check the CHFWeb HomeSchool Mall listings for these resources--many provide an order form for catalogs online. 

Find out if there are any homeschool workshops and/or curriculum fairs in your area and state. Mark your calendar for these events. Contact a state or local support group for more information or check out "Homeschooling Conferences By State" maintained by the Coleman Family. 

Find a place for encouragement and support. A local support group is a great place to get help and make homeschool friends. Also don't forget, the Christian Homeschool Fellowship Website (CHFWeb) is an online support group that is always available for you, 24 hours a day! Post a message on the message board to connect to other homeschooling families and obtain practical tips and encouragement. 

Again, pray and seek the guidance of Our Heavenly Father Who has convicted you in the first place to teach your own children. He is so faithful and will continue to lead you and make you strong in your quest to get started in homeschooling!

"Our Learning Opportunities" ... I've been thinking about the learning that can take place each day. Not the learning my children are doing, but the daily opportunities I have to learn.
