Everything I know about God I learned from our sons.

Okay, almost everything!

I often say that I will one day write a book entitled, ‘Everything I know about God I learned from raising sons’

I’ve contemplated this endeavor for a number of years, however I tend to conclude that it’s not time yet because I’m still learning from them.

but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect,
1 Peter 3:15 ESV

Just recently though I have sensed a nudging from Holy Spirit to give this idea more serious and prayerful thought. And so, even creating this page and typing this brief introduction is my first step of obedience.

And the Lord said to Paul one night in a vision, “Do not be afraid, but go on speaking and do not be silent, for I am with you…”
Acts 18:9‭ ESV
