    Thank you for sharing these beautiful words for your son. I have followed you for years…and it’s people like you who are inspiration as we watch you go into this next season. My oldest, a son, is fifteen. Very strong-willed, very opinionated, trying our best to parent him from a Godly biblical worldview just as we have from the time he was born and we dedicated him to God. Your words have been encouraging to me today. I needed that as a reminder….

      So glad this spoke to you today! Do not stop doing what you are doing, friend! These strong-willed boys are going to do great things, otherwise the devil wouldn’t fight us so hard for them. Keep the prayers going up for him!

    Gosh Julie I remember back to when your son graduated from high school the same year as my firstborn. Your words and blog helped to comfort me as a new life began for him and I was hooked. Now I sit here and read this sweet letter and I am so moved by your words. Such a heartfelt genuine post and I’m in tears! Best of luck to your son and his soon to be wife. Also I can’t wait to see all of your daughters beautiful wedding pictures!

    As I sat and read your loving message to Grant tears were and are flowing down my face. How beautiful your words of love are to your son. Julie you sound so much.like your dad The Dave Cross I have always known and loved all through this blog.
    What a great blessing for him to have your words for all time. You and Dave have done great with your children. God will continue to poor out his blessings on you all. I’ll love you forever. Miss Viviian
