Taking everything into consideration, our young people are undergoing a great deal of pressure from: peers, society, social trends, and the flesh; because it TOO wants to manifest itself. That's why as Triple P's: Parents, Pals, and Pastors; we're constantly giving the LORD: thanks, PRAISE, and Glory for granting us the opportunity to raise 4 Soldiers of GOD.
What the Supreme Being has bestowed upon us, that's what we TRULY Try to share with our 4 Diamonds in this fashion:
FATHERS, DO NOT PROVOKE YOUR CHILDREN TO ANGER, BUT BRING THEM UP IN THE DISCIPLINE AND INSTRUCTION OF THE LORD.
The BIBLE is based upon repetition; its natural that what you: hear, read, and pronounce numerous times, that's what you'll retain. This is also valid for the: raising, teaching, and guiding of your sons or daughters. If you partake of the 3 D's: discuss, debate, and describe to them(your kids) the: causes, effects, and results of associating with friends/acquaints that have a Criminal Mentality at some point or other they will come around when you least expect it. We're always emphasizing the importance of reading the BIBLE as a daily family activity and during those moments our: Loving, Handsome, and YES, sometimes Opinionated 4 Diamonds(son):
1 CORINTHIANS 15:33
DO NOT BE DECEIVED "BAD COMPANY RUINS GOODS MORALS".
Remember this name because JESUS CHRIST is taking this Raising Author places ... for the world to: see, hear, and read about; it's ALL for GODS GLORY... Our Bebe's(which means baby in Spanish) is growing into an AMAZING young man and its due to G.O.D.
