When moms and dads ask me for parenting advice, I encourage them to pray for their children. Because sometimes prayer is all you have.
I’ll never forget the struggle my son Troy went through while he was being born. He somehow got his umbilical cord wrapped around his neck and swallowed amniotic fluid. One moment everything was fine. The next moment we were facing one of the most dangerous birthing situations possible. And there was nothing Jean or I could do.
