Everyone wants to be a great parent—the biggest responsibility
of parenthood is teaching your children to love Jesus with all of
their heart, soul, and strength. For parents with children of any

your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give
you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children.

your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the
door-frames of your houses and on your gates."
