It’s quite often that we get comments from visitors to our house like, “we never saw a family function like yours before”. Maybe it’s because a high percentage of young people come from dysfunctional homes, where there is only one parent, no parents, parents fight all the time, one parent works in another city or country, child lives with someone other than parents, parents are divorced. The complications are many.
Most recently, a group of High School girls visited us from another city, just to observe our family. Their small group leader planned the trip because she knows what they need. They want to see a man and woman that love and respect each other. They want to see children that have relationships with their parents. They want to see families that eat together. They want to see hugs and laughter. They want to see moms that cook and dads that wash dishes. They want to see order, purpose, unity and commitment.
All these notions just from a visit.
Our family is far from from all they needed, but we thank God that he’s using us to inspire others simply by living out the family values we work at every day.
