"Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from Him."
Again I say God has been extremely good to me. Without ever incurring labor pains He has allowed me to experience motherhood as well as grandmotherhood - my God is an awesome God! In the early years of my marriage I had the opportunity to nurture, care for, teach, and participate in instilling principles into my husband's children as if they were my very own. Next month will be 20 years since my husband's transition to glory, but the mother-child relationship between me and his now grown children continues on! As a bonus I have attained one grandson and three granddaughters in whose lives I actively participate. Again I say, I am truly blessed! In these later years of my life I have learned the importance bringing children up in the admonition of the Lord. First of all, you have to know Him yourself to share Him with someone else. Though I don't beat my children or grandchildren over the head with the Gospel, it is very clear to all of them that Jesus is my first love and I speak about Him at every given opportunity. My gracious Father has now bestowed opportunity upon me to tell unknown numbers of children about Him through creating Ethanayah - His baptism training school - that He wants to use to prepare His children for their purpose, which will ultimately glorify His Name! It is my prayer that you will prayerfully consider giving your children a head start in their spiritual walk. The Lord told me it is His desire to raise up Little Soldiers for the Kingdom! As Hebrews 3:15 says, if you hear Him speaking to you about placing your child in this course, don't harden your heart. Yield to Holy Spirit and do what is best for your child because He and He alone knows the plans He has for them.
