Family is the root of your beginning and can only grow positively with God, love, and discipline.

When you are having a hard day and your parents seem so negative, please know they are trying to shape your life into goodness and leave the evil behind.  Friends are wonderful but not always the best example to follow. So to shape you into a better person they show you manners and respect..


Respect your elders is easy when you are little but to show that love when you get older shows your maturity.  Talk to them when you see them with your freinds, call them on the phone just because and on their birthday.  Hearing from you will brighten their day and only take you 5 minutes of your time.

Children learn from example, so when your parents, grandparents, and aunt/uncles say they are sorry, say their prayers, go to church, help someone in need, take care of you instead of doing what they want to do, or visit someone in the hospital or nursing home.  These are examples to follow in your every day life.


Family is family every day and we should love and respect each other. "Do unto others as you would want done unto you."  Take the time for each other and do not take each other for granted; as we have learned to love and accept each other from the beginning.


Thank you for your time.
