Since we are in the Christmas season and approaching the start of a new year, I wanted to speak briefly from the heart. I have thought quite a bit about the posts that we have put before you, especially those that speak toward the family.
I will admit that I speak so much on building and guarding your family because I have seen too many people, especially men, put the well being
of their household on the back burner. Growing up, I experienced just this type of upbringing.
As a father now, I take great care not to repeat the sins of my parents or to use them to justify my failures. Instead, I answered the call of being a responsible parent to my children. I understood that I have to live a life that reflects my expectations of them and that I must guide them and not simply discipline them when they do wrong. I needed to help them learn from their mistakes and show them how to avoid repeat occurrences.
I will end this short post by saying that I see the fruit of my labor before me and my children bring such a joy to my heart. I smile when I see them, I anticipate their joy when they see me. They hunger for my presence when I am not around. Simply, I am their dad.
Being a committed parent is worth every effort. Please don’t take the information we provide you lightly. Put it to practice and watch your results change.
