  • What to do if your child’s freedoms are compromised

While this podcast targets parents and teachers and leaders, we typically try to keep our content kid-friendly, just in case your kids are listening along. For this episode, we feel the content is really important for parents and teachers and leaders, but our guest does mention some topics, without going into detail, that may be things you don't want to explain to younger kids just yet. So, please listen, but if you have younger kids, you may want to screen it before listening with them. Thank you, as always, for listening to The Bible for Kids podcast.

Judge Roy Sparkman is a subject matter expert on religious freedoms. Serving Texans as a trial lawyer for more than two decades and a district judge for more than 8 years, Sparkman’s passion for issues of religious liberties peaked when he represented his pastor in a deposition and subsequent court hearing where the pastor was questioned about his sermon condemning some children’s books from a Biblical perspective. He is passionate about educating religious leaders about the ways in which their liberties are already being infringed upon, and equipping them to defend their positions and their faith.

Sparkman holds a Juris Doctor from Baylor University School of Law and a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from Midwestern State University. He and his wife, Donna, reside in Waco, Texas, and enjoy spending time with their family and grandchildren.
