Student’s legal rights!

Hey!

I found this book on my parents bookshelf, and lo and behold, it had a list of public schooled students’ rights on campus! Sadly, theses are only public school ones so I’m not sure about anything other than that and home school. By the way, you have total freedom of speech in home school haha. My awesome friend Kaylyn has told me that a teacher in her class has falsely been telling them that it was illegal to talk about God on campus. At the sound of that both of us were filled with a feeling of righteous anger, and I was sure that it was a lie. However, I couldn’t remember exactly what her rights as a student are. So as I was saying, I found public schooled students rights, and here they are!

  1. You have the right to meet other religious students and even form groups and Bible Studies!
  2. You have the right to express your beliefs through signs, symbols, and clothing!
  3. You have the right to talk about your faith, or share your beliefs with other students on campus!
  4. You have the right to distribute literature (like  Bibles!) on campus during times you are not being instructed!
  5. You have the right to pray on campus by yourself, in groups, and even during graduation!
  6. You have the right to carry and/or study your bible or other religious literature on campus!
  7. You have the right to do research papers, speeches, creative projects or talent programs on themes of faith!
  8. You have the right to be exempt from activities that go against your religious beliefs!
  9. You have the right to celebrate or study religious holidays!
  10. You have the right to study themes of faith, religious literature, and religious history!

This awesome info was taken from the back of the book called The Truth for Youth! Look them up at http://www.thetruthforyouth.com 🙂

My Testimony of the Grace of God

Hey!

Really not much to say about me, but what God has done in my life, well, that’s a different story. About two years ago we lost our house among other things. At that point I got all uber depressed and stuff. I hated life, myself, and barely believed in God. Soon I wanted to kill myself and spent most of my waking life wishing for the strength to do it, after all, Heaven was supposed to be a better place right? Then God stepped in. I had always wanted to go on a mission trip, and I found my chance! I went to Northern Ireland with Teen Missions Int’l (teenmissions.org) a wonderful organization that totally changed my life. I made some amazing friends who were absolutely on fire for the LORD, and God healed my heart. When I got home I felt like a completely different person, I stopped some things in my life that kept me from God and kept on reading his Word and praying. That’s pretty much my story, and now I do everything I can to glorify God and live for him. He has saved me, changed my life, and done so much more I couldn’t write all about the times. Oh, and before I forget, he wants to do this for you too! Just ask him!
