Back to School


It's that time of year. The summer is coming to an end, school supplies are in abundance in the stores, and kids (and parents!) are gearing up for the first day of school.

We received these great little armbands at church last week to remind us to pray for a specific student in our church who will be starting back to school in the next week or so. I've been praying for Ryan all week.

As I've prayed for Ryan, I've been reminded of how tough school was at times. Whether you go to public school, homeschool, private school, Christian school, whatever, it's not easy to live a Christ-honoring life day-in and day-out. I'm praying for Ryan and all the other students in our church to represent Christ well and to grow in their relationships with the Lord this year.

DaySpring has a great collection of back to school items that will keep Christian principles at the forefront of their minds when in class or studying. The products are high quality and super stylish, so bless the students in your life with these fun items! Four designs are available and can be purchased online at DaySpring. I also saw them at my local Wal-Mart, which delighted me to no end!


Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
Philippians 4:8, ESV
