About the Book
Armor Up teaches children the importance of putting on the spiritual armor of God at the beginning of each day. It breaks down the biblical concept in a way that is easy for children to understand and apply to their own lives. Leonhardt hopes that by learning these principles, children will no longer live in fear but will walk throughout life feeling confident, protected, and unafraid.
“Therefore, put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.”
Ephesians 6: 13-17
