Our children face more challenges and decisions today than ever before. No matter how intentional we are in raising them, when they head off to school, they face a world that is quite different than home. Establishing a routine of prayer for our children, their teachers and fellow students is vital.
When life is challenging it’s comforting to know that others have your back. You can help provide that encouragement for KC area teachers, administrators and support staff when you share about your school. Let us know what makes your school special and tell us about those individuals who go the extra mile to make it a great place.
Every Friday throughout the school year we’ll bless one of those individuals with a $50 gift card that they can use to pour back into their classroom or school.
Listen (all School year long) to hear your school mentioned on the air.
