It informs almost every aspect of my parenting, from understanding how various cultural influences may affect my kids’ hearts and shape their worldview, to having a clearer vision of the kind of adults I want them to become as a result of our rearing: not simply happy, but happy as a result of having character, wisdom, compassion and walking closely with the Lord.
