Set Some Goals!
Two posts in one day, WOW! I just watched the "rest of the story" about Tim Tebow which aired on a Focus on the Family commercial during the Super Bowl. It's a great story for MANY reasons- but in listening to his mom and dad talk about parenting, I noted that she emphasized, that though they fell far short, they had goals and aims for their children, particularly to know the Lord. This echoed a theme I've been reading in George Barna's "Revolutionary Parenting". So, taking the advice of this mother and father with 5 grown children who love the Lord (5 for 5, not bad!)- and confirmation from Barna, I'd say setting goals, particularly goals for the spiritual walk and growth- are a GOOD IDEA! Watch the interview here. Oh, and she homeschooled all 5 kids through high school. Wow.
