Joseph K Stephen
I have been challenged in recent months to think long and hard about the way we train our children. Obedience training (which is what we often focus on) is only the beginning. Our ultimate goal is to impart a deep love for God, an appreciation of His character, faith in His Son and emulation of His nature, all of which should manifest in love and service to others from a humble and fervent heart. To this end, I have begun preparing Character Training lessons which look at many of the Godly traits we as Christians should be characterized by. It has been a huge challenge to me personally as I realize the gaping holes in my own upbringing. By God's grace however I am now learning along with my children these essential character qualities.
