On a recent field trip to Williamsburg, Virginia, I noticed the cobblestone streets. It must have been a painstaking process to lay those stones—one by one—on those streets. In much the same way, we parents are paving the way for our children to grow from preschool into adolescence. As with the cobblestone streets, there are many stones to be placed in our children’s lives, and parents are not the only influences looking to lay stones. Our culture is poised to set as many stones as possible.
Now is the time—when our children are young—to solidify our connections with them before the world and its philosophy start making a bigger impact than we do.

As I was reading through the story of Noah this morning, I had some interesting thoughts about the importance of a father's faith and how it can bring blessing and protection to his entire family. Men, our faith matters.
Noah was a righteous man and was considered blameless. So when God decided to purge the earth of the evil that man had created, He recognized Noah and made plans to save him. However, we see that God ended up saving more than just Noah. He also decided to save Noah’s wife, his sons, and his sons’ wives.
