We have a new little something–a new Facebook page for our children’s blog. I’m calling it by the same name as the blog, “Helping Children Grow,” and even with all my efforts of today to get it going and recruit followers, the start is very slow. Well, the Lord will do with it as He wills and with all the blogs and social media I have to take care of, I hope He can yet use it to be a blessing to a few. And one thing the Lord is not allowing around here: to let my head get too big from huge followings of fans. Hope it’s keeping me humble for as Mr. Ryle often said, humility is a crown for the believer. And we so easily let our priorities get out of whack. So as always, He knows best.
Well, here is our mission from the page description: “A page dedicated to helping and supporting parents in particular, but also grandparents, aunt and uncles, and others who invest in the moral and spiritual growth of children. We recognize that “a happy childhood carries its own brightness to another generation, springing up with the same glad anticipations…” (from Godey’s Lady’s Book, 1856) This too, is a part of the reason for this page: to help children grow in gladness in that old-fashioned way of family life and values. And that includes teens. Lots of pictures, quotes, amusements, challenges, and links. Enjoy and find inspiration to minister to young people.”
So there you have it. Let’s see how it goes.
