This was written by my 12 year old daughter. I am speechless…which is a miracle.
This paper is about the wisdom that my parents have taught me, but when they taught me their wisdom, it was through not only their words, but their actions. My parents have taught me a lot of wisdom through out my life and if I were to write it all out, I probably would write a book as big as the dictionary. So I have decided to pick three main things of wisdom to write about; Christian Love, Humor, and Hard Work.
Christian Love is a high priority of my parents’ lives. My parents have taught me Christian Love through their actions, some of their actions being which: They took in a teenager when he was unfairly kicked out, my dad works overtime for the church and refuses pay for it, they often invite people over for dinner who are struggling, and my dad teaches Jr. High Sunday School (and you know how those annoying Jr. Highers can be ;-)). Because I have grown up in such an environment full of Christian Love has really affected my life. I am inspired by my parents to be more loving towards people and to show them how a real Christian should be.
Laughter surrounds my life because of my parents. My parents always try to make laughter out of most situations. My mom has said many a time that humor is a key in public speaking. The reason my dad teaches Sunday School is not only because he wants to or that he knows a lot about the Bible, but because he can make us laugh until we explode. Because of my parents, I try to make laughter as often as I can. Laughter is happiness, happiness is what God loves.
I have learned from my parents that Hard Work is a key element for life. My dad leaves for work at 7 a.m. and gets back at 9 p.m. which is more then most men. My mom has to deal with us from dawn to dusk and sometimes in between, which I think sums it up that she is a hard worker. Our parents have us go to every work day at the church and my dad always out works every man there. My parents have taught me that I should always try my hardest at everything and to always go the extra mile.
My parents have taught me wisdom which I will try to use until eternity. No other human being could ever take the place of my parents. I hope that I can make the same affect in my future children as my parents did in me.
