God sent Jesus down to earth to live among us and to experience the life that His people lived each day. Jesus died on the cross for our sins to provide us with a second chance to get it right. The day we accepted Jesus in our lives as our Lord and Savior, He gave us the gift of sanctification. If we follow this process we can thrive to be more like Jesus Christ, becoming a disciple of God, with the determination to keep our eyes on the prize, Jesus Christ.
“It takes a village to raise a child” is an old African Proverb meaning that parents need help from Uncles, Aunts, Granddad, Grandma, Big Mama, and members of the community. Grandparents today have been put in the position of rearing their grandchildren, due to unforeseen circumstances, such as parent’s abuse of drugs, alcohol abuse, abandonment, incarceration, mental illness, unemployment, divorce and death, just to name a few reasons.
