Resiliency

“A whole lot of Christians want to change the world, but not change ourselves.” –Christine Caine

I am a disciple maker and teacher. I’ve been doing this for 23 years and have challenged thousands to grow and change. That withstanding, my greatest challenge lies in growing two little boys into disciples!

Lately, I’ve been thinking about how to build character into them. Kids can be quick to throw in the towel when they thinks success is unlikely (adults too for that matter).

This manifests itself in not wanting to look for “lost” objects or resigning themselves to never being able to spell certain words correctly.

I have sharp kids who I know are capable. My job is to help build character to take them to the place where natural ability can be sustained. Talent is not enough.
