How Having Kids Helps Us in Chaotic, Uncertain Times

Having kids in the house keeps us looking toward the future. It constantly lifts our eyes to the horizon—to what will be years down the line.

In chaotic, uncertain times, this is good for us.

I provide very short reading assignments that help with this—every week in my free weekly email newsletter.

Our country has been through frightening, chaotic times before, and we will go through them again. How great it is—to build our confidence that our kids are going to thrive and flourish in years to come—no matter what happens.

I’m going to give you a phrase to write down. Write this down now so you’ll be sure to catch it when I talk about it tonight:
