Parenting: What Parents Do

Father's Day is coming up so I thought this post to be especially fitting. 

At a Lutheran school in Michigan a father of one of the graduating 8th graders was asked to speak for the ceremonies. His wife advised him to speak as a parent.

Check out this best graduation speech ever. It is well worth your time.

I love how he uses stories about his children to illustrate three important things that parents do:

1. Watch

2. Pray

3. Cheer

And he explains all of this in the context of Christian education - at home, church and school.

Dads - the work you do through the power of the Spirit is life changing!
