Yesterday I shared with you why it’s more important than ever for public school students to participate in this year’s “Bring Your Bible to School Day,” the Focus on the Family-sponsored and student-led free speech event.
#BringYourBible has grown exponentially since we originally launched it in 2014: The first year, 8,000 students participated. The second year, 155,000. Last year, over 355,000. This year, we’re hoping 500,000 students will bring their Bible to school and will share and read Scripture with their friends during appropriate times, like before and after school, during recess or lunch, etc.
If you’re interested in learning more about the event, I hope you’ll tune into our broadcast featuring Michael and Linda Fichera, who have found that “Bring Your Bible to School Day” has helped strengthen their family’s faith. They’ll also discuss how they’ve developed a strong foundation of faith and a heart for outreach with their daughters, who they adopted, even in the midst of Michael’s struggle with brain cancer.
Michael runs his own insurance and financial services company, and Linda operates Tees with A Purpose, which does silk-screening, embroidery, and promotional products.
