Happy Independence Day!

A month ago, I challenged you to take the month before Independence Day to work deliberately to improve your and your family's civic knowledge.

I asked you to declare independence from ignorance, and not be part of the two-thirds of Americans who, according to former justice Sandra Day O'Connor, cannot "even name the three branches of government, much less say what they do."

Together, we've looked at the language of the legislature, the details of state constitutions, and the controversy over Executive Orders. Over the next few months, we'll continue to expand our knowledge of the U.S. government little by little.

But today is a day to celebrate, not only our nation's independence, but also our journey toward personal freedom from fear and ignorance. And as Christians, we celebrate above all God's work in us as He grows us toward righteousness and freedom from sin!

Happy Independence Day!!!
