Dear Susam M -- and Mary,
I pray for the eyes of your childrne's hearts to open and see Jesus as He really is. I pray that you will have the wuiet confidence to be Christ's ambassador to your children wherever you send them to school.
God Bless you both. I have printed out just a few comforts about fear from Scripture for you.

"Then you shall prosper, if you are careful to observe the statutes and the ordinances which the LORD commanded Moses concerning Israel. Be strong and courageous, do not fear nor be dismayed.
(1 Chr 22:13)

You who fear the LORD, praise Him; all you descendants of Jacob, glorify Him, and stand in awe of Him, all you descendants of Israel.For He has not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; neither has He hidden His face from him; but when he cried to Him for help, He heard.
(Ps 22:23-24)
