Time is the greatest gift to share with each other.
My kids have given me a glimpse of how God must feel. God looks at us, like, ‘Oh, good grief…you’re driving me crazy, but I still love you.'
When tearful parents come up to me to talk about their child’s ‘learning disorder,’ I ask them, ‘Oh you mean his learning opportunity?’
I’ve never seen anyone excluded from church. On…occasion a tiny worshipper has burst into tears. Sometimes I resent the interruption, yet Christ was very clear in his preference for children. He would have welcomed their noise.
Someone in the supermarket told me how well my daughters were behaving. It made me feel so great because raising my kids into caring people is the most worthwhile thing I can do.
If you leave your child with a positive attitude, you leave them with an estate of incalculable value.
Each day of our lives we make deposits in the memory banks of our children.
Children may close their ears to advice, but may open their eyes to example.
The best way to ensure that your children grow to become kind and compassionate adults is to teach them how to be kind and compassionate children.
We think of children as vulnerable. In my experience, they’re giants. Their bodies and souls are amazingly resilient. What we often mistake for fragility is their openness…
This word ‘Father’ resounds with all the depth of the unknowable and the wonderful trust of the child.
