Growing in the Spirit of Jesus Christ

prayer time

July 02, 2012

praying together

My brother (Tod) and I were brought up
in a Christian home.

We were taught to pray
before going to bed
and to say grace before meals.
Tod and I went to church
with our parents,
attended Sunday school,
and went to VBS
(vacation bible school).
We were encouraged to participate
in different church activities.

I never realized the tremendously positive effect
this had on my life until much later.

I thank the Lord for my parents love, guidance,
support and encouragement.

"...bring them (children) up
in the training and instruction
of the Lord."
- Ephesians 6:4 NIV

  1. So true Larry... I didn't like Church as a kid and the one we went to was not as "person-ably meaningful" as it could've been; but STILL positive behaviors were established and seeds were planted... even though they lie dormant for 33 years...haha
