Bishop's Message: Raising faith-filled children

BY BISHOP DAVID WALKER

Being a parent today is hard work because of financial pressures and the expectations of society. No longer is it enough to raise healthy, happy, and holy children; now they all must be junior Einsteins, pint-sized Victoria Azarenkas, and heart-throbbing Jack Vidgens. Children hardly have time to play or parents to parent. 

This is especially true when it comes to raising faith-filled children. Children look to their parents for signs of what it means to be a person of faith. As parents, you are living examples (witnesses) of how a person of faith lives, acts, and prays. While you, as parents, are the most important witnesses for your children, it is essential that your children also experience the living example of other adult members of the faith community, and it is important that that living example be one of joy and celebration.
