Just a few months ago we brought two children into our home from the foster care system. We’re excited about adopting them, and we can’t wait to make them part of our forever family. At the same time I’ll be the first to admit the process hasn’t been easy. These kids have a few years under their belts—plenty of time to have been trained in life. (And the training they’ve received wasn’t always positive!) These months have been a mix of pouring love into them and modeling how things work in the Goyer home. I know as they learn to follow me, they’re also getting trained to follow the eternal leader, Jesus.
No matter how many kids you have—or how long you’ve had them—the best way to teach your children about life is to model it.
