Our children are faced with one crisis after another in our schools. School shootings, the pandemic, widespread social unrest, and the growing breakdown of the fiber of our families and the country. I often wonder how our children cope with having to go to school every day while dealing with so many pressures.
In 2005, I wrote a book for kids titled, “Can Jesus Go to School with Me?” I wrote the book as I was preparing to deliver the Back-To-School address to students enrolled in the district where I served as Superintendent.
I was moved and encouraged to write yet another book, “Can Jesus Go to School with Me Every Day?” As our children are exposed to so much social media that does not portray safe schools and leaves out many of the Christian values once taught in school, the assurance Jesus is still everywhere guiding, protecting and loving little children must be shared with children, parents, churches, and schools. We can still sing with confidence that “Jesus loves the little children of the world’’. We can sing with hope in our hearts that, “He’s GOT the WHOLE WORLD in HIS HANDS.” Most importantly, our children must be taught that Jesus cannot be legislated out of our schools because “HE IS EVERYWHERE”.
