Give a Vision for Marriage and Family

     Parents today often go to extremes to help their children get ready for college and the workforce, but they often do not know exactly what to do when it comes to preparing them for the most important job Give a Vision for Marriage & Familythey will ever have....that of being a spouse and a parent!  While a small minority will be called to a life -long celibate service, most are called to marriage and family. ( Genesis 2:18-24).

     We sometimes overlook how much marriage and family serve as the organizing structure of life and the prime arena for our spiritual development.   I am certainly thankful for my education and have used my college degree wholeheartedly, yet I came into my marriage ill-prepared to be a wife and a mother.   God has been merciful and gracious to me!

   God believes in family....it was His idea! Let us keep encouraging our children to be all that God wants them to be...and not neglect the importance of the job that originated in His heart!

This article was inspired by the book,  The Center for Strong Families, by Kurt Bruner.
