National Day of Prayer

Why You Need To Research Marijuana
It’s Time To Share Your Faith
Email Changes You Can Expect
IN THE MEDIA


National Day of Prayer 

Have you felt anxious lately? Do you catch yourself wondering what the world is coming to and whether or not you should do something about it? Concern and worry are human experiences. However, in Philippians 4:6-7, God clearly instructs us to turn our anxious thoughts into prayer and thanksgiving,

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God which transcends all understanding will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Thursday, May 6, is the National Day of Prayer. This is an incredible opportunity for you to lift up your personal concerns to the Lord and join others from across the nation in pleading for God’s favor on behalf of our state and our country. For more information CLICK HERE.


Why You Need To Educate Yourself about Marijuana

Virginia recently became the first southern state to legalize recreational marijuana. Under this law an individual is permitted to have up to one ounce of marijuana in their possession, which is the equivalent of forty or eighty joints. Each household can have up to four cannabis plants. You can read more HERE.

In response to this news Julaine Appling, president of WFC, urges the constituents of Wisconsin to educate themselves on this matter.

“This battle [of legalizing or not legalizing marijuana] has come to our state, and we need to educate ourselves. Some Republicans in our legislature have introduced a bill to make possession of ten grams or less of marijuana a misdemeanor, not a felony. Ten grams of marijuana is about a third of an ounce, or about fifteen to twenty joints. Governor Evers’ budget calls for legalizing the recreational use of marijuana.”

WFA recommends this video by Dr. Kevin Sabet, a noted expert on this issue. We also recommend you visit TruthOnWeed.com for a new web resource with helpful tools to truth-check the marijuana lobby.


Someone You Know Needs the Hope You Have

According to a new study conducted by Lifeway Research, “A worldwide pandemic has apparently led Americans to think more about the meaning and purpose of life.” Their research revealed that 57 percent of U.S. adults consider the question, “How can I find more purpose and meaning in my life?” at least monthly. This has increased from 51 percent in 2011.

The article went on to state that, in 2011, 21 percent of people said that they are unsure of what happens after death. That number has increased to 67 percent. You can read the full report HERE.

Julaine Appling said this is an important time for Christians to share the hope that they have in Christ with those around them.

“In the midst of the virus crisis, Christians have extraordinary opportunities to bring hope to friends, family, neighbors and more. We know the higher purpose — the ultimate purpose — in life is to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and to live our lives bringing honor and glory to Him. Sharing the Gospel message is really the best thing we can do to help others.”

First of all, thank you to everyone who took the time to respond to the survey we sent out a couple of weeks ago. Your feedback was super helpful, AND we’re ready to launch into our first new project: Making this email newsletter more reader-friendly.

Instead of getting one LONG email from us once a week, we’re going to send you two shorter emails. Our hope is that this shift keeps you informed with the most up-to-date information and that the email will be easier to read.

Connecting with you is really important to us and we’re excited to take this next step with you!

Something for 13-19-year-olds
Thank You for Voting
Why Families Should Go Outside
Arkansas’ Legislative Victory
IN THE MEDIA


Do you know anyone between the ages of 13 and 19? If so, we have something we think they will love: LEAD Wisconsin.

LEAD WI is a six-day, in-person event meticulously designed to equip youth to engage their culture from a Biblical perspective.

Whether at school or in the media, there’s no doubt that today’s young people are encountering an onslaught of behaviors and ideologies that are in direct conflict with the Word of God and His good intentions for us. LEAD WI has been created to help teens connect and build relationships with like-minded individuals, who seek to honor God with their thoughts and actions.

Throughout the week youth will be poured into by local leaders from the business, political and religious sectors. There will be discussion time where attendees will learn how to think about and respond to issues such as the LGBTQ+ initiative and the Black Lives Matter Movement from a biblical worldview. There will also be plenty of time for recreation and competition, because it is, after all, a summer camp!

If you know someone who LEAD WI would encourage and strengthen make sure you share it with them or sign them up. You don’t want to wait around because registration is $400 only until April 30! You can register, learn more or apply for financial aid HERE


Thank You for Voting 
Pro-life, pro-family, pro-Liberty candidates perform well


For those who voted in Tuesday’s Spring Primary Elections, THANK YOU! Your vote is your voice in your community, in Wisconsin and beyond.

When you cast a ballot in any election you are setting an example of what it looks like to be an engaged citizen. You also make a difference in the consequences that every election brings.

Conservative candidates prevailed in both Court of Appeals Races and in the special elections for Senate District 13 and Assembly District 89. In Wausau, four conservative candidates won all four conservative seats on the school board, essentially flipping that school board from leaning liberal to leaning conservative in one election.

Read the WFA PAC congratulatory press release HERE.


Wisconsin’s Department of Natural Resources announced earlier this week that it is participating in Citizen Science Month, honoring volunteers in scientific research and monitoring.

Owen Boyle, DNR Species Management Section Chief said, “The data collected by citizen scientists are critical to helping carry out science-based management of Wisconsin’s natural resources, particularly endangered resources. ” You can read more HERE.

In Wednesday’s Wisconsin Family Minute broadcast, Julaine Appling, president of WFA, urged parents to take this opportunity to help their children engage with the handiwork of their Creator by going outside:

“This is a great opportunity for families to get outdoors and teach kids about God’s glorious and diverse creation. It’s a time to showcase our Creator God while adding to the body of knowledge about the nature He has created. We remind the next generation that we worship God, not science, all while having fun, building family bonds, and making lasting memories.”



“The Arkansas legislature has overridden Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson’s veto of legislation that would prohibit ‘sex-reassignment’ surgery or hormone treatment to minors afflicted with gender confusion, moving swiftly after the governor’s rejection of the law.” You can read more HERE.

In response to this news, Julaine Appling, President of Wisconsin Family Council, commented, “It’s sad we need legislation to stop medical professionals from performing or prescribing life-altering, irreversible surgeries and/or hormone therapies for minors. We urge parents to talk to their pre-teens and teens about this issue, reinforcing that God loves them and doesn’t make mistakes when He creates us male or female.”

If you struggle to find the right words to help your child understand and navigate transgender issues from a Biblical perspective  “The Parent Resource Guide” was written with you in mind!

It is a carefully researched resource providing parents with practical ways to address the transgender issue with their children. Grab your free copy HERE.
