7 Ways Homeschool Can Help You Through a Teen Pregnancy

We can all agree that teen pregnancy—no matter the circumstances—is not an ideal situation; it is the result of a broken world, and it presents a dilemma for all involved. There are suddenly many things to figure out, and your life is no longer your own. Let’s not forget that, however costly, ill-timed, and inconvenient, children are gifts from God and blessings to their communities. We pray that your community is ready to receive and love you and your child, especially in a time such as this.

While teen pregnancy will change your life, it does not have to derail it. The tools that you need to press into this new path in your life are readily available, easily accessible, and will allow you to proceed in a positive direction.

The first thing to remember is that you are now living for two. The stakes have been raised. Every action you take and every decision you make is for both you and your unborn child. This applies to more than just your physical health, too, especially if you plan to raise the child yourself. Teen pregnancy in particular requires that you also think about your future, and prepare yourself to become someone who can care for a child well, in education, employment, and maturity. It is crucial that you continue to grow in all aspects of your life to ensure future success. Life won’t pause for your teen pregnancy, so take a deep breath and move one step at a time to keep figuring out practical ways to move forward.

Now more than ever, keep getting down on your knees and asking Him to guide your steps, asking Him which way to go, asking for His self-sacrificing love as you prepare to lay down your individual life for your child. As you pray, seek out the support of people and organizations who understand your situation.

Psalm 34: When the righteous cry for help, the LORD hears and delivers them out of all of their troubles.

One of the things that you will need to figure out as you proceed in your teen pregnancy is how to continue your education while balancing the pressures of your pregnancy, and eventually motherhood (if you plan to raise your child yourself). There are many reasons why going back to a regular high school may be difficult. Plugging back into the school system can be a challenge socially, financially, emotionally, and spiritually.

Homeschooling may be an option you want to consider. Deciding to be homeschooled during a teen pregnancy is a great way to ensure that your education remains uninterrupted. Being homeschooled will also allow you to incorporate a Christian worldview into your learning, helping you remember the sacrificial love of Jesus on your behalf. Remembering this truth—and being reminded through your schooling—will also help you to maintain your emotional and spiritual health as you navigate this new path in your life.

Here are a few reasons why a Christian-based homeschool program may be right for you:

2 Corinthians 9:8: And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.
