10 Verses to Calm Your Daughter’s Back-to-School Anxiety

Going back to school can be difficult! Especially in 2020…

With the new school year upon us that will undoubtedly be different amid the ongoing COVID19 pandemic, it’s important to set aside a special time with our daughters to arm them with spiritual truth. God’s promises will help them understand that Jesus is always there for them. Not only does He understand what they are going through, but when they choose to put their trust in Him, He will comfort them in their fears and give them His peace that surpasses all understanding.


Instead of carrying a backpack of burdens (filled with anxiety, worry, insecurity, and stress) into the first day of school, cover your girls in Scripture so they will walk confidently into the halls (or your home) with hearts and minds that are guarded in Christ Jesus (Phil 4:7).



  • Cut the verses out and tape them to your daughter’s mirror in her room or bathroom.
  • Put them in her lunch box or tape them inside one of her school books. 
  • Memorize the verses together and “quiz” each other during the week.
