Here’s another terrific idea from FamilyLife that many people have found to be one of the most rewarding things they have ever done for their child. It’s one of those ideas that is simple in concept but hugely significant in its delivery.
As your child “comes of age” – as they move from adolescence to adulthood – you have a wonderful opportunity to make the transition meaningful. Rather than just letting the moment pass by we encourage you to launch your child on purpose by presenting them with a notebook of letters of encourage and words of wisdom from people they respect.
There are two primary purposes for this gift: to affirm the qualities already evident in your child’s life; and to instill in them wisdom and guidance for their years ahead.
You could choose a number of different occasions on which to present such a gift: on their 18th Birthday, when they leave school, when they begin university, or start a career, or when they turn 21.
In the process of compiling this notebook you’ll begin to appreciate the value and importance of this idea. And as you present it you will discover that this notebook becomes one of their most treasured keepsakes.
God's fifth commandment, "Honour your father and mother..." may be one of the most profound in Scripture.
The following guide on how to write a special tribute to your parents has been used by hundreds of people over the last decade. These treasured documents of love and appreciation have been used by God to bring blessing and even healing to many families.
The best gift you can give your parents is the gift of honour.
