Everyone who hears my words and obeys them is like a wise man who built his house on roci. It rained hard, the floods came, and the winds blew and hit that house. But it did not fall, because it was built on rock. ~Matthew 7:24-25~

Beloved Child,

>How is building your family like building a house? In building a house, you start with a strong foundation. Next, you raise walls of protection. You add windows to let in light and fresh air, and doors to allow people to come and go. And, finally, you put on a roof for protection from the elements.

I want you to build your family on the unshakable foundation of my Son, Jesus Christ. He will raise walls of security and love and open windows of light that let in the wind of my Spirit. He is the door of hospitality and compassion that will make your house a home. And he is the covering you will need in the rough weather of life. Building a strong and loving family is possible when you build on the Rock.

The Master Builder,
