Host:Dr. James Dobson
Guest:Dr. Michael Youssef
Psalm 127:3 says, "Children are a heritage from the Lord." But Dr. Michael Youssef, founder of Leading the Way Ministries, insists that verse 1 provides essential context: "Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain." When God is at the center of the family, He will grow, bless, guide, and protect it. Seek always His direction and your children are likely to emulate you into their adult years.
