I have three children. Nia is 20. Owen is 18. Elliot is 15. They are all different. Very individual. Different motivators, different temperaments, but all great fun. I became a Christian when I was 15. When my wife and I had children we were in effect first generation followers of Jesus. We had no real blueprint. We were working it out as we went.
