Story

There are not too many things more important than teaching our children about God, about faith, about helping others.

Proverbs 22:6 says "Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it."

I wrote this song "Teach My Children Well" for my three children several years ago. My favorite line in the song says "It's what they learn from me, that makes them blind or see, Lord help me to teach my children well."

I now have three little grandchildren who I love with all my heart, and it is my three year old grandson Max's voice your hear on the beginning of the song praying with me. I talk to Max all the time about God and he loves to pray with me. We always ask the blessing when we have a meal together and Max likes to hold hands when we do that. Max is learning and he won't depart from it when he gets older.

Teach My Children Well

Of all the gifts that God so dearly blessed me with

The ones I thank Him most for when I pray

Are my three little children who I love so much

I ask God to protect them every day.

 

I think about how fast that they are growing up

It’s sad to think it really won’t be long

Before they step out in the world on their own.

Will they know how to choose from right or wrong.

 

Do I teach my children they can always call on God

Or will they grow up trying to do it all themselves.

Do they know how to pray or not know what to say

Lord help me to teach my children well.

Do I teach my children to reach out to those in need

Or will they grow up hiding safely in a shell.

It’s what they learn from me that makes them blind or see

Lord help me to teach my children well.

 

Now is the time that I can most influence them

To be a good example in their eyes.

So when they step out in the world on their own

They won’t get caught up in the world’s lies.
