And a Small Child Shall Lead Them
Having childlike faith is not always easy, but it is possible with the right inspiration!
I got my inspiration from our granddaughter as she grew in the first year of her little life with us. Of course, I shared it with Homie (Boyce) first because I was so excited by this new revelation!
Now, I want to put it in writing form and share it with you all!
Before our granddaughter, Boyce and I always prayed for our children. When they became teenagers and began dating, we started praying for our grandchildren too.

Most of the people we knew were married, for better or for worse, before children.
