Carol Brady and Me

Be encouraged, moms and dads also. Your job is not easy because it is not a job; it is a calling. Our children are our biggest mission field. I must teach my children to love the Lord with everything. Imagine how many people we can touch if I am successful as a parent. One set of parents raised a pretty awesome son who went to a cross and changed the world. And, I don’t think they had an “Alice”, just faith in a God Who can do all things, including show all of us how to raise our children in His ways.

Youth Camp or Not? That’s the question (Sharing a blog from ByFaithShe)

So, should I send my elementary, middle or high school child to camp?  What if we don’t attend church regularly?  Is it still ok?  What if we can’t pay for it?  Is my child ready to get away for a week?  What happens if he/she gets homesick?  Will he/she be safe?  Are they really paying attention to my child at a beach?

These are the questions that can make any parent lay awake at night while his child is off, possibly 7-8 hours away, at some camp that they wanted to go to because ALL their friends were going.  Is this a good idea?
