All in Equipping Your Children
“This will be your opportunity to bear witness.” (Luke 21:13)
When students in a 3rd and 4th grade class pondered how to be the “salt and light” in the world, one student offered to give a Bible to everyone in his neighborhood. Other students loved the idea, but wondered how they could obtain all those Bibles. As is often the case, God gently revealed the answer: Pocket Gospels!
The teacher suggested 10 apiece. Not enough. She suggested 100 apiece. Still not enough. By the end of class, the students had determined they needed a bazillion of them to properly get the Message to others.
When the tradition of Father’s Day began over a century ago, Sonora Smart Dodd, pushed for her city to recognize her father’s birthday, June 5, to honor William Jackson Smart for his determination to sacrifice for and raise his six children alone. The city agreed and held the special event on June 19 to allow more to time to schedule events.
Now, we celebrate Father’s Day by spending time with our fathers, treating them to special meals and gifts, and looking back on memories with them. Over a century has passed, but Father’s Day still upholds the same roots as the first celebration—as a day of giving back.

Who is Jesus?
Youd be surprised maybe even shocked to realize how many people you meet every day who have only a vague idea about Jesus Christ. Theyre standing behind checkout counters and sitting in doctors offices. Theyre riding beside you in the bus and working alongside you in the workplace. No matter where you are, there are people who may have heard about Jesus, but have never met Him.
Use this Gospel to share your heavenly Father's love!
Too many men have forsaken their God-given mandate to exercise moral and spiritual leadership in the family, in their communities, and in business.
As followers of Christ, we can't turn our heads any more. Too many kids are growing up without Christ. One child not knowing about God's love, mercy and forgiveness is one too many. But millions of kids are growing up without any sort of biblical knowledge that's a national epidemic! Who's to blame?
