The only thing I could see was not pointing out that children have Tri-Deafness. I realized that we have to tell our children things three times...not sure why?...and we normally raise our voice each time. We think they didn't hear us, so louder will help, and it is not needed. Just need to say it three times. If you think I am joking, check it out for yourself.

MSG Brad Sand,

I know that's a sensitive statement to address however; one that should be addressed. If God is your center, then the family the cell the enconpasses the center. They are always around you looking for love, guidance, assurance, fellowship, strength, and trustworthiness. My balance was knowing that all I had to do each and every day would lead me back home to the secure place that my family needs. If I had to deploy, count it all joy because it is the testing of not only mine but their faith. They needed to know that I was going to return but only by the grace of God.

My family looks to the north to find strength and then look across the room to find reassurance in me. The military had me when I was there on and off duty; so did my family. Fear, anger, disappointment etc... family never allowed me to waiver. I hope this answer the question adequately.

A very serious answer and I have nothing to disagree with. IF one place God at the center, they are putting their life in the right place.

I'm a little bit of a hardass with my kids because I believe in discipline, since their mothers chose to be the good cop (mall rent-a-cop is more like it). I tell my kids once. Because that's all I *have* to tell them. I started early. They get it done because the second time they're told it will be in the form of "you're being punished because..." -- I do this without raising my voice, threatening violence, or demeaning them.

Also, knife-hand.

Train up a Child in the way they should go and when they are old they will not depart from it.
