Today is Bring Your Bible to School day, a nationwide, student-led movement that’s observed by hundreds of thousands of students from over 50,000 schools across the country. Today’s events are designed for two purposes:
- To share the Bible’s message of love and grace.
- To celebrate religious liberty and freedom of speech in the United States.
To highlight those objectives, our Focus on the Family Broadcast “Leaving a Legacy of Faith” is featuring a recorded talk titled “The Family Circle” by founder and president of Winning at Home, Dan Seaborn.
Dan’s message will inspire you to be deliberate about passing the “baton of faith” to your children and offers fun and practical ideas for doing it. What he has to say is important.
My family of origin experienced both sides: with faith, and without. I didn’t have extended family growing up. I lost my mom and dad when I was young, and I had no grandparents, aunts, uncles, or cousins. No one. It was just me and my four siblings.
But we did have neighbors. We called them “Grandma and Grandpa Hope.” They took us to church every Christmas and Easter and stood along my mom’s bedside as she was dying with cancer. That wonderful little family, the Hope family, led my mom to the Lord.
Which started a domino effect. All five of mom’s kids have come to know who Jesus is and have committed our lives to Him. We’re not perfect people, of course. But we are serious about our decision to follow Jesus Christ to the best of our abilities according to His grace. And our greatest desires have been passing that legacy on to our children.
If you’re looking for spiritual guidance, you may be interested in a free online booklet we’ve written called, “Coming Home: An Invitation to Join God’s Family,” which explains what it means to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
