I sat down and read J.C. Ryle's "The Duty of Parents" today.
I began reading it as I ate breakfast. I barely made it through the first five pages before I was done eating, but I knew that I would need to sit down and take notes before I went any further.
So, later in the day I gathered the pages, picked up a pencil, fixed a glass of lemonade, and sat out in the shade on our back patio to study with Ryle.
I was so challenged and encouraged by this work that I want to take the time to share with you some of the things I brought away from it.
