25 Encouraging Scripture Verses for Back to School

back-to-schoolIt is true that I am not walking a child to a school bus, or fretting over school lunches, or monitoring uniform infractions, or ensuring my child is adequately prepared for the first day of school.  It comes with having an Empty Nest.  However, most of my friends (and very soon my daughter), will be spending this first day of school preparing their child by planning, preparing and then perhaps pushing their child out the door to start another school year.  Parents, have you also thought that to adequately prepare your child and YOU for that first day back that both of you ponder upon scripture?  Might make the day go by a little easier.  Just sayin’ 🙂
