That weekend was not a waste of time, money or resources. It was a weekend that actually showed me how I was wasting time, money and resources on things other than my kids education.
Husbands, now here is something that is near and dear to my heart. Last year at the 2012 Teach Them Diligently conference in Spartanburg, South Carolina I had the pleasure of listening to a gentlemen by the name of Mark Hamby. Mark is the founder of the Lamplighter Ministries, which in itself is another great topic that I will discuss one day. He was speaking on the topic of “A Great Awakening: The Mind, Media, and Moral Imagination”. My youngest son, 8 during this time, was the exact kid that he was speaking of when it came to video games. He had become addicted to the “rush and thrill” of the game. It was acting as a literal drug that caused a change in his brain chemistry.
