Dear Parents of Teenagers,

Thanks for all you do to invest in the life of your teenager(s). You probably feel like an uber driver (ready to pick them up/drop them off when they call), coach (helping them perfect their sport), tutor (working with them on homework), guidance counsellor (preparing them for the future) and, sometimes, a jockey (pushing them to cross the finish line...without a whip of course!)...all wrapped up in one!

"You lied to me!"...A Christmas Confession

"It was the week before Christmas and all through the house.
Not a creature was stirring except for me and my spouse."

Why were we stirring? Because I had just told my eight year old daughter the truth about Santa. The results were dramatic, traumatic and tear-filled.

Make your kids go!

I love this video from McLean Bible Church in Virginia. They used it in the main church services to challenge parents to "make their kids go" to Beach Week, their annual student camp.

Tommy Lippard (a friend and champion for THE Cause) and his daughter, Kristy, talk about how he

Dear Miley Cyrus,

I hope this letter finds you well. Although I don't know you personally I do feel that I do know you from a distance, or at least your alter ego, Hannah Montana. Over the years I've watched you grow up to become the beautiful young lady that you are. God
