Bring Your Bible to School Day

In schools across the country, students are being pressured to hide their Bibles.

We're not hiding anymore.

Here at Focus on the Family, we believe the Bible is a powerful message of hope and love for humanity—something to be celebrated, not banned. We also believe in the cherished religious freedoms our Founding Fathers fought to protect.

That's why we're urging students to Bring Your Bible to School on October 16. Carry it around like any other book. Read it during free time or recess. Don't provoke others or make a scene. If your classmates ask why you have a Bible, explain why you think it's the most important book in the world. If a teacher confronts you, be respectful. You might inspire kids in your class to be more vocal about their faith, too.

For free, student-friendly tools to help you understand your religious freedoms, along with a step-by-step guide on how to participate in Bring Your Bible to School Day, ask your parents to go to

"For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is God’s power for salvation to everyone who believes." —Romans 1:16
