Enjoy Every Moment of Summer

Summer is an amazing season. The sun, beaches, oceans, lakes, picnics and everything else summer brings leaves you with a sense of relaxation and fulfillment.

Proverbs 24:3-4 – By wisdom a house is built...

What builds a “house” and fills its rooms with riches? Wisdom! Where do father and mother learn wisdom so they can build their house, that is, their family? They learn it most easily when their own parents apprentice them to it, but also when they possess the inherited wisdom of generations summed up in pithy proverbs.
