Top 3 Priorities for parenting 

1) Raise kids who know they are loved by God and their parents unconditionally – their worth isn’t wrapped up in their performance. I love you up to the moon and back no matter what.

2) Raising kids that make a difference in the world. I see the world and the ugly things. But there are beautiful people doing great things.

3) Make our family home a safe place. We want our home to be an environment people are drawn to.
