“Sometimes we are asked by our young people why we stress so much the commandments of God. As one little person put it to me just the other day, ‘Why do you have to be so churchy?’ I would like to share a feeling or two concerning that inquiry. It is because, young people, we love you, are concerned about you, your well-being, and your ultimate welfare. It is important to know that we as parents have taken upon ourselves a very sacred oath and covenant to bring you up in the ways of the Lord, and that is very, very important to us, as it is to Him.” Paul H.
