Boot camp isn’t supposed to be easy, it’s meant to prepare people to defend their country against the enemy. It has the built-in ingredients to make you strong. There’s a sort of spiritual boot camp believers go through. It’s not easy, but God is using it ultimately for good.
Dads, what will your legacy be? It’s never too late to make positive changes. Your godly influence will impact your family for generations to come.
Memorizing Scripture will help you gain control of your thought life—you’ll become disciplined, sharp, and confident.
Your child needs you to help know who he is. Parents, spend more time affirming and encouraging your child for what he does right than for disciplining and correcting for what he does wrong. Children get security from their parents to know who they are, to like who they are, and to be who they are.
