Do not conform to what the world does, but what God has asked of us. I want to do all in my power to do this. I do not want my daughter to feel like she needs to do certain things to be accepted, to be loved. Nor my son feel like he has to act a certain way. or also under pressure. I want them to be strong in who they are and who God has made them to be. To not struggle as I did when I was a teenager, but to know what a beautiful creation they are. The promise of a better tomorrow. To love God with all their hearts and eagerly want to do all He has asked. To see each morning and day to what a glorious blessing it is. To know, even in sorrow and pain, He is there for them. To know everything will be ok. This is my burning desire as a parent and as a child of God myself. I want all children to know that they are loved and special. So my friends..be ever diligent and careful not to fall prey to the world, to not give in..for your children are watching. It's not just your salvation, but theirs also.
Start children off on the way they should go,
and even when they are old they will not turn from it.
