My kids are going back to school soon and my son will be in school for the first time in K3. The first time he will be gone from me all day. I’m kinda nervous how he will do. He really hasn’t been around a bunch of kids before. Then, my daughter is going to be in 3rd grade.

So, in the spirit of school starting, I wanted to come up with some scriptures for our kids and teachers.


I hope these scriptures give you some strength throughout the year. Giving someone motivation and encouragement through tough times.
