Dear Jackson: A New Chapter

A new chapter began in your life and mine this week: the beginning of your education. I’m confident you’re going to beat Kindergarten, just like you’ve beaten everything so far (including Dad at wrestling, Chutes and Ladders, and sweet talking Mom). I’m praying you’ll always have your hunger for learning and that I’ll remember that everything I do is teaching you something. I’m aware as I read the Old Testament, and as I see modern day families, that as your Father, I can be one of your biggest hindrances, or your most valuable asset. That’s why I’m committed to be an example worth following, to staying engaged in your life no matter how busy I am, to loving your Mom with all of my heart, and to teaching you all I know about being a Godly man. I’m looking forward to seeing what God does in our lives in the process. Love, Dad

  1. As a mom, grandmother and teacher, without a doubt, I can say: All children should havethe love, guidance and support given to Jackson (and Hudson for that matter).
