A good friend just shared with me this article on raising children to be global citizens.
To me, it was a breath of fresh air to read. I've recently reflected a bit on whether and how we should include children during times of corporate worship. I've pondered issues relating to worldview. I've asked questions regarding what things really matter in this world, and what the best use of our time is. On several occasions, I have expressed frustration that we sometimes feel more misunderstood among our church family than in the wider community (where there is an attitude that 'anything goes', and a certain amount of freedom to 'do what works best for you'). It is far easier to be a default parent, or perhaps an overprotective one, but harder to carefully consider what God wants you to do.

- I am a Christian mother of five, and our highest goal as a family is to serve God in every aspect of our lives.

This blog seeks to share our adventure.
