Our true Parent

When our children were little, my husband and I tried to be very careful about what we read to them and let them watch on television. Valuing and protecting their innocence was important to us. As they older, I found that the responsibility of protecting them was increasingly demanding. I realized I needed to rely more on God's guidance in helping them value and maintain their innocence.

We found that the most successful approach for helping the children and maintaining a peaceful atmosphere at home came through understanding God as our true Parent—our true Mother as well as Father. Because of God's allness and total goodness, parents and children alike can always turn to Him for the best protection available—and not one of us is ever beyond His loving care and control. As His loved children, we all possess the intelligence and ability to recognize any imposition that would try to tell us that we are not in His care or that evil might be lurking just around the corner or that we could be subject to disease at any moment.
