If You Can See It, You Can Build It

This morning I woke up with a conversation I had with my dad many years ago on my mind.  I’d watched him build a wooden swing in my parents’ back yard.  He spent several days cutting, measuring, nailing, sawing and finally applying the stain.  I was impressed at the finished product, which in now a . . . → Read More: If You Can See It, You Can Build It

Watch What You Say

Words have power. Kids are listening even when you don’t think they are. If they hear you say it, they will repeat it. Make certain your words are worth repeating.

OBEDIENCE

“Do what you’re told,” is the common mantra heard by children growing up.  One of the first lessons we teach our children is to obey.  For a child to disobey is an invitation for trouble. As I’ve taught my children lessons in obedience, I’ve been reminded of God’s expectation from us, HIS children, that we . . . → Read More: OBEDIENCE

Not a Statistic

There are many negative statistics to indicate that the single parent household is the reason for the despair of children today.  Poverty and lack, poor educational attainment, crime, and a cycle of aimlessness are often attributed to growing up in a single parent household.  While this may be overwhelmingly true, I say to you that . . . → Read More: Not a Statistic

Leaving a Legacy

What will they remember about you when you’re gone?    Stop and think about your legacy.  It’s not only about making a living for today, but it’s also about keeping the faith, and sharing it with your children.  It’s about having a mission and a vision for life that is greater than you …something that your . . . → Read More: Leaving a Legacy
