“We carefully cultivate our children's potential for a reason. When they leave our homes, we want them to be equipped to make a difference in this world.” pg. 175
It really all boils down to this: Love God. Love your neighbor. We want our children to be well equipped to do these things when they leave home.
I love the way that Zan takes us through the qualities and practices of Daniel. I highly recommend that you go back over that section in this chapter. How do your children and your parenting compare? What's missing? What are you doing well. What do you need to focus on to raise “Daniels” in your home?
