    My attempt this morning is to communicate a biblical perspective on parenting so that we can do exactly that ­ have the confidence as parents to raise our children properly. Parents, simply put, our job is to teach our children how to obey.

    Children Who Learn I love the things kids come up with. A Sunday School teacher asked her class one day why it was so important to be quiet in the church worship service. One bright little girl replied, “Because people are sleeping.” After coming home from church, one boy suddenly announced ...read more

    our words have the same power -- they can bring joy or cause despair. Proverbs 18:21 puts it this way: “The tongue has the power of life and death...”

    Taming the Tongue Several years ago, Beth and I went to someone’s house for a party. After we were done eating, a group of adults starting playing volleyball while the kids had a scavenger hunt.

    Fathers Who Lead Happy Father’s Day, dads!
