The other day my daughter-in-law sent me a video of my 3-year-old grandson holding a pack of Blessing Cards in one hand while placing his other hand gently on his baby brother’s head. “What are you doing?” his mommy asked. “I am blessing him.” And he proceeded to mumble some words of blessing over his brother. That video brought this grandma to tears – happy, hope-filled tears. This future father (Lord willing) who has already learned to model what he daily experiences from his own daddy… who experienced it from his daddy. A father’s spiritual legacy that, by God’s sovereign grace, is doing far more than we could ever imagine in the lives of the next generation and beyond!

That is why I’m thankful that More Than a Story is part of the older ones reading routine.
