The Long View

Ahhh...children. When they arrive into this world, there is nothing like it. We look down the corridor of time and hope. Hope? For what? For most of us, we don't have a concrete goal for the raising of our children. Oh sure, we may have some general thoughts such as "Raise them to be Godly," but for the most part, it isn't concrete nor is there any plan for how to get there if it is.

So for the parent who loves Jesus and wants to raise children who love Him with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength...what do we do? What is our goal? How do we pursue it?

That's the general idea of this blog...challenging the typical parenting ideas that are so prevalent in our society. Could it be that those very parenting ideas are why children, teens, and young adults are the way they are, and thus our society is degenerating at every turn?

Do I have all the answers? No. But I'll start and end as best I can with Scripture. Only there can we have any hope of getting it right.
