Proverbs 22:6 Train children in the way they should go; when they grow old, they won’t depart from it.
I have raised a toddler, a child, a youth, a teenager, and a young adult. Although he is the same person, he has been someone different every year!My Son is 23 with his own son now and although people laugh when I explain to them that my job is done, I truly mean that my job is done. I won’t ever stop loving him and my advice will always be here for the taking, but my job was to raise him and send him on his way. That has been completed. Was it easy; are you kidding me? Was it worth it, you darn right it was! And the wisdom that I’ve gained about life, people, and myself is priceless. Throughout this blog you will read the knowledge and experiences I’m led to pass on! May it be of help to you as you journey through the path called parenthood!
Being a parent is hard work but it’s such a rewarding thing! It requires a lot
of reading. I particularly like to read books from parents that have been
where I have yet to go so that I can gain some wisdom from their victories
and defeats! I don’t pretend to have things all figured out, and neither should
anyone who wants the best for their children.

My only child just turned 18 today! Wow, I can only hope and pray that through
everything we’ve been through together he has come out seeing God, and love.
Money, power, fame, friends, and family, are all good to have and obtain, but
out of everything I desire that the most important thing in his life will be
God! Because then everything else will be love! Assignment Complete!
