I love my children.
They are great! We have lots of fun together… we laugh… we cry… we dance. I cannot imagine my life without them. They are truly a treasure.
However, someday my children will grow up, and God-willing, be independent, responsible, and Jesus following adults. In order to accomplish that goal, we as parents must guide and train them now (when they are in our care) to be independent, responsible, and Jesus following kind of people.
