Boys and Balance

This incredible task mission of raising boys, it often drives me to prayer and contemplation...

Lately I've been thinking about how important it is to simultaneously nurture and harness a boy's natural appetite for adventure. This is a balancing act that requires supernatural wisdom.

And while it's important to build up our sons, I'm realizing that it's just as vital for a boy to be struck with enough wonder and awe of the natural world to remind him that he's small and not invincible.

And so, we hiked to the falls.
