We learn how to cram before exams in high school and college in order to get all the info in our heads. Then we grow up and carry the same attitudes in our marriages and in how we raise kids. We goof off all semester and expect our quick fixes to cultivate our relationships. In regards to raising our kids we neglect to invest in them regularly and instead pursue our own success and happiness. We can even pass off our kids to be raised by others like schools, churches, day care centres or kids clubs. Over time, we have neglected to build a firm foundation at home with our kids and one day they grow up and have failed to become the adults they could have become. We’ve outsourced the parenting of our children to others and are left regretting the years we’ve wasted. Cultivate the growth of your children. They are a blessing.

I love choosing freedom and joy and bringing others along with me on the journey. :) I am a child of God,…a gold miner… a treasure hunter, a mentor, a life coach, a spiritual director, once a traditional church pastor – now a church planter of disciple making movements, a teacher, a researcher, a hungry prayer warrior, a loyal friend, a fellow traveller and an avid explorer. 🙂 View more posts
