Happy Father’s Day!

I admire Ryan’s countless daddy-skills, but one of my most treasured is that he memorizes Scripture with Vivienne every night (Lia will join in soon!). I’ve sat out in the living room night after night, listening to the two of them learn the fruits of the Spirit, Psalm 23, Psalm 100, The Lord’s Prayer, and – currently – Isaiah 58. This joyful discipline has already enriched and taught our family, ministered to dozens of people at a local retirement village, encouraged a neighbor recovering from back surgery, comforted a great-aunt who is walking with her husband through cancer, and reminded many people of God’s powerful Word.

I love the legacy that Ryan is building in our children. I filmed tonight’s session to shamelessly show off my wonderful man’s hard work… and encourage all of us to hide God’s word in our hearts.

    This is my first time dropping by. I found your site over at A Warm Cup of Coffee. This post really touched me and I greatly enjoyed watching your amazing daughter recite the versus with her dad….very sweet. I thought she was super cute at the end of the 23rd Psalm. One thing my mother told me and I think of it often, was that she wished she had memorized more scripture. That’s so great that your daughter will grow up knowing so much. Now…to work on my kids. šŸ™‚
