eye is the lamp of the bodyRegular readers will know that I have major concerns for our young people today.

The most important place that a child will be in is their home.

I believe God gives each child, when they are born, the power to love in their heart and mind. They know what to expect from their parents and if it is not given, they can go off the deep end. Alexus was at that point until God put us together. Now she is doing wonderfully as a Christian and as a young woman.

My life as a child was pretty miserable because I had parents that didn’t really care for me or help me. That is what set me off on the life of not caring about myself. I got into a lot of trouble when I was young.

I even went to church and Sunday School with my parents, but It didn’t matter because – as I said before – my parents didn’t show me the love that I needed. When I met Mary, my wife to be, she introduced me to Jesus Christ. That was the turning point in my life.

We had two children who are now raising their own families and doing wonderfully. I believe that is because we raised them up as believers in God.

I would like to encourage each of you to take a look at your life, whether young or old, and see if there are things that you can do to be a positive, God-fearing person and an influence on your family and friends. You won’t be sorry. I pray that you will take me up on my challenge.

My book talks about what you can do to raise your children, if you have them in Jesus Christ. Give it a try. May God bless you and your family. He did my family and I know He wants to bless you and your family. Remember ‘It’s Your Decision’.
