How Children Learn To Make Choices

Growing Godly kids is the goal of all Christian parents. While many parents desire to protect their children from many things, it’s unwise to shelter them from being able to develop their “decision making” muscles.

The Greatest Need

We don’t need smarter people. Facts are always changing.  Today’s news is tomorrows trash.  What we need is more people of courage. People of character.
