Children . . .

Children are a heritage from the Lord . . .
Psalm 127:3


Our sweet grandson, Ethan . . .


When Jesus was here on Earth, He often took time for children. He held them, blessed them, and told His disciples that their tender innocence and simple faith were the essence of the Kingdom of God.

If you have children, you no doubt know that God has entrusted you with a most precious treasure. He expects you to give them your very best and raise them with an understanding of His goodness and grace.

Just as an archer aims and then shoots an arrow toward his target, God has given you the ability to direct and send forth your children. And He has also given you His word that He will be there to help you, every step of the way.


Children must be valued as our most priceless possession.
