How To Teach Spiritual Leadership In Your Homeschool

How do you begin to teach and develop Spiritual leadership in your homeschool? As homeschool Moms, we have the unique opportunity to not only teach our kids the ABC’s and 123’s, but we are given the privilege of being one of the most important Spiritual leaders in their formative years. This is such a big responsibility, but also an amazing blessing to be able to pass this character trait on to our children.

What does the Bible say about spiritual leadership?

There are many teaching examples of leadership throughout biblical history. The Bible is filled with stories and examples of people God used to demonstrate Spiritual leadership, from Moses leading his people, all the way to Paul serving as a spiritual mentor to countless people as he shared his faith. God used men and women back then, and He will use you in your home, too!

I’ve found a few verses to remind us why God says in His Word that raising our children to be spiritual leaders is so very important.

Character Studies of Biblical Leaders

When it comes to teaching spiritual leadership to our kids, one important thing to keep in mind is relevance. We can talk until we are blue in the face, but if we don’t connect what we are teaching relevant to their lives, it won’t always make a lot of sense to our kids. 

Character studies are a great way to teach spiritual leadership.  Teach them how to conduct character studies of Biblical figures or share resources that help them do that. Here are a few books and resources that would be great tools for kids of different ages.

Daily activities to foster spiritual leadership in children

Fostering spiritual leadership in our kids is a wonderful goal. To help you apply this in your daily homeschool, here are a few ideas to nurture spiritual growth and leadership.

1. Morning Reflections and Prayer: Begin each school day with a moment of reflection and prayer with your kids. Encourage them to think about their values and intentions for the day, and how they can embody kindness, compassion, and understanding.

2. Gratitude Journaling: Incorporate gratitude journaling into the morning routine. Have your kids write down things they are grateful for. This simple activity cultivates a sense of appreciation and keeps them focused on God’s blessings. (I have a great journal for kids here!)

3. Service Projects: Plan regular service projects as a family. Whether it’s volunteering at a local shelter, helping neighbors in need, or participating in community clean-up efforts, serving others instills empathy, compassion, and a sense of responsibility.

4. Nature Walks: Spend time outdoors in nature, appreciating the beauty and wonder of God’s creation. Use these moments to teach your kids about God’s design and the importance of stewardship.

5. Creative Expression: Encourage your kids to express their spirituality through creative activities such as art, music, or writing. Provide them with materials and opportunities to create meaningful works that reflect their beliefs and values.

6. Family Discussions: Schedule regular family discussions where everyone can share their experiences and stories from the day. Praise your kids when you hear small examples of spiritual leadership and encourage them to be Godly examples to everyone around them in front of the whole family. 

These activities can be adapted and customized based on the age, interests, and maturity of your kids. The key is to make character growth an integral part of daily life and to nurture their natural capacity for spiritual leadership. The examples and lessons you teach now will follow your kids into adulthood, so enjoy the process and make it a priority. 

You can do this, Mom!
