Greetings to all Fathers

Just a note to encourage you all to lead the way ahead for your family in this next learning year. 

Firstly love your wife and serve her. Make her life easier by getting involved with the teaching process at home at any and every opportunity you can. Start with morning devotions at the breakfast table. Make this happen if it does not happen already. Read the book of Proverbs - it is packed with so much wisdom and if you start teaching your family that the "Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom/knowledge" then the whole learning process will start to make sense and God will be honoured and feared and the fruit of it will blessing. Focus on character before academics. Academics is the by product of godly character. Remember our form of education is not to compete with the government school system or try to match up to it's agenda. We are first and foremost to fear God, obey His commandments and glorify Him in all of life. End each day at the dinner table or around the family hearth with God's word. This is key to a blessed family life.

God bless all you Fathers as you do your vital part in leading your family in the education process for your children.
