One of the greatest things about being a parent is helping my children to find joy. As a Christian, I know that real joy comes from God, through following His Son’s example. What was the main thing Christ did during His time on earth?

If you want your children to feel fulfilled in their lives, be happy, unselfish people, and remain active in the service of God, they must learn to make a habit of serving others.
