My fourteen-year-old daughter, Claire, leaves in a few days to attend boarding school. My husband and I have agonized that we have not finished teaching and preparing her—that she will leave our home speaking and reasoning like a child as she goes quickly to live independently like an adult.
Parent God, be with all parents who are separated from their children—whether by geography, misunderstanding, or unresolved conflict. May each trust in your love for the other. Amen.
"Discovery Weekend changed me. I now have a better and stronger relationship with God because of it. Also, it has changed our church because people from all grades got closer together." (Discovery Weekend is an Upper Room spiritual formation experience for middle schoolers).
