Brian and Jenni have 9 children that range in age from around 1 to 17. I’ve been impressed with the character of their children. I share my thoughts about disciplining young children to obey their parents, and then we talk about other things that are important in training up children as well.
John talks about miscarriages, missionary service, health failings, pastoring, and God’s faithfulness through it all to work good out of it and uphold John and his wife, Pamela. John talks about the confidence in God that he has now because of the things he and Pamela have gone through.
Sue lives in a full house with adult children and grandchildren. She retired a few years ago and now watches over her grandchild, Audrey, who you will hear a little in the background. I get the impression that life’s been rough for Sue, but she’s still hopeful. Sue talks about her marriages, church experience, what she would do differently, and what she hopes for the future.
My daughter, Ellie, and I talk about Jordan Peterson’s Future Authoring project. It’s a program that leads a person through some journaling in response to various questions. Then, in light of the journaling, a person should be able to list some goals they would like to set based on their values. The next part of the programs leads the participant in making plans to reach those goals.
It’s a good program that I enjoyed quite a bit. It’s a part of the Self Authoring suite.
