Why Young People are Leaving the Messianic Faith

Why Young People are Leaving the Messianic Faith

We are a unique generation. We are the first generation to be born into the Messianic/Hebraic Roots faith. Many of us having no background or understanding of Christmas, Easter or any other norm of Christianity. We were raised following the commandments. We can quote Torah and debunk the misconception about the law being nailed to the cross. We know all the food commandments and can quickly explain the sheet of unclean entrées in Peter’s dream. We know our Bibles.

But there is a dilemma. There’s a problem. A large number of young people are leaving the Messianic/Hebraic way. Almost every young person I know can name more than a few friends who have walked away. Why are teenagers who grow up immersed in the Bible suddenly leaving as soon as they turn 18?

1. We grew up watching our congregations split multiple times over issues that shouldn’t be issues. As teenagers we saw it first hand. We finally met friends who believed like us— or so we thought. Slowly but surely little things came out: name pronunciation, head-covers, skirts, pants, Equinox, Aviv Barley, pastor or no pastor. Gone were the words “Love thy neighbor as thyself”. The nasty emails began coming in. Name calling, accusations and finally the split. This was our world. Our friendships ended because of a Hebrew letter.

2. Shunning and belittling are common in this way. I’ve experienced a few and have heard many stories of shunning. If someone doesn’t believe like you, the best way to show your righteousness is by not allowing your children to talk to their children. That way, your family won’t become tainted. One girl I know, recalls a time she was belittled because she chose to wear a denim skirt and a tee shirt instead of a long sleeved dress. Shunning wasn’t uncommon for a lot of us and most of the time it wasn’t over a Torah defined sin. This, obviously, does not coincide with the biblical love our parents told us about.

3. My third reason is perhaps the biggest reason young people are questioning their faith. The focus of so many Messianic families is only keeping and knowing the laws. There is no mention of the heart of the letter. We are taught to follow blindly like robots. Keep the Sabbath. Celebrate the festivals. Don’t eat pork. We know exactly what to do, and probably say: “Because it’s in the Bible”.

But God didn’t just write out a list of do’s and don’ts for us to randomly obey. To follow blindly is to be immature and legalistic, like the Pharisees.

Small children follow their parents blindly. They are legalistic. Comfort comes from knowing the boundaries. If Mom says “you have to eat your vegetables” then they have to eat them. As a child grows they begin to understand why the rules are in place.

As spiritually immature children of God, we are legalistic. If some one isn’t following the law exactly how we would, we get upset. We tattle and tell on them. They are wrong.

A child of God who is maturing seeks to understand the heart of the Torah that Yahshua explains. The letter of the law will always be valid, but when you understand the reason WHY you were told to eat your veggies, you can then apply that principle to other areas of life. You can practice other healthy habits: eating vegetables, exercising, and drinking plenty of water.

But so many of us haven’t been taught the heart behind the rules. All we know is the dos and don’ts and when no one is there to enforce them, we stray.

But now, it’s up to us.

We are no longer under the headship of our parents. The Bible says there is no excuse. It’s up to us to wade through the mess of Messianic and find the true love and heart that God intended. We cannot be immature and follow blindly and we cannot simply throw the baby out with the bath water. It’s up to this generation to create a community of love and strength in Yahweh and in each other. I’ve already seen so many young people rising to the occasion. It’s up to us to foster a place of hope and heart for our children.

  1. Thanks for the simplicity and stunning truth of this blog entry. I’m one of those parents who raised two teen daughters in this community, starting in 2002. Now I’m seeing 4 grandchildren being raised the same way. The key to keeping the legalism out of the equation is to stay focused on Messiah Y’shua. We have to learn to make allowances for other’s practices and preferences, which as a community, we fail at terribly. I’m sorry for the pain that you obviously have seen and perhaps experienced. But I’d like you to know that there are those who are trying to see things change and lead that change. Thanks again for your words.

  2. What is your definition of legalism ? My understanding is not just the keeping of the law or a set of rules. It is the doing so and believing the keeping of these rules earn Salvation. That is what the Pharisees did.
    Remember “Train up a child in the way he should go, Even when he is old he will not depart from it.”
    ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭22:6‬ ‭NASB‬‬

    1. I agree with you. I also believe legalism comes in many forms. One form is when people create fences around the commandments, like the Pharisees did. They then treat the fences like God’s spoken word.
      I definitely believe in that scripture!

  3. Wow! This is so timely! This was sent to me by one of my leaders in our assembly. Abba has been speaking in general about “us” and our lack of love overall towards each other. We have to remember that the Torah= love! If we just follow without love we’ll make the Torah hollow and void of it’s deeper purpose; To ahab Alohim with all our heart….and to love our follow disciples and then the out of covenant. We have to show Love for all to know we are of Yahusha! You know the tree by it’s fruit! We will and have been give a mercy period to get that tree to product good fruit and if does not it will be chopped down! The congregation I’m stewarding for Yahusha are getting down to some nuts and bolt with the Ruach Kodesh guiding us to be loving as the Scriptures say to love not what has been shoved down our throats from the world. It a hard process, real pain, guts and tears, so much pain we all have. We need more compassion and more listening in love the heart of Yah’s people HIS is using us, In Partnership with Yah, to help heal even as we are healing ourselves. Praying for all of Yah’s people!! Selah! Shalom, shalom!

  4. I whole heartedly agree. There are many times my husband and i have been tempted to just leave the whole thing behind. We have a huge family and many ages and it breaks our heart to have our yohng people subject to such foolish, idol, henpecking over non-essential matters. Thank you for keeping the faith in spite of it. Its rather shameful that we already get so much pressure from those in mainstream church that do not understand, and thw world i general, and still feel this same pressure in our own fellowship families.

  5. I pray as each young adult steps out to be accountable for their faith and stops blindly following that they with have; courage, patience, love, a profound sense of fearing YHWH. I pray for them to experience and share the Grace that’s been freely given. I pray for the community that’s around them… that they will extend the same grace they received as they learned. As each young adult learns it might look different that what you or others went through but if we remember what we are called to this is a beautiful moment not tragedy. I pray that the young adults learning will not be stifled by criticism, shunning, and judgement.

  6. I will say you hit the points but did not have the other side of the coin as it were. When people started in this way they were as ignorant as anyone in what to do and how. So when issues came up with what to do and how, leadership right or wrong had to make choices on how to love and Follow our Elohim. And yes some were harsh in doing so, but just like coming out of the church or the world along the way you have to make choices. That is just the way it is, to say love thy neighbor as one loves themselves had gone away. In some instances yes but we have to hold to what we see and correction or admonishment must come. Using the words and the spirit that goes with it can cause those who are being corrected to pridefully reject sound doctrines. If they do not listen that is on them. And we are all learning. On your second point it is really an extension of the first point, people who refuse to hear or even look into what someone has told them scripture says to look for the truth of the matter on either side, the one who thinks something is wrong or the person who is being told. Then nothing gets accomplished if both are only looking to be heard and not what is the truth. The shunning or belittling is wrong, you are trying to win your brother. But as it says if they refuse to hear you have to follow what it says to do as hard as that is. For me loving my brother as I want to be loved is tell and show me what I need to hear and see not what you think about the matter but with what the spirit says about the intent of the words. As far as the 3rd point of blindly following, if you have read the words or commands and if the words do not mean what they do to you then do not follow them. YOU have to accept the truth, your parents truth is theirs and they have shared it with you, now it is on you to seek this or not for yourself.
    There is nothing hard about this way, we make it hard. It is about choices, free will acceptance and most of all trust. Trusting Him above all to show you what to do when you are troubled by what you see people do or not do. He says you have not because you ask not, does any of you lack wisdom? And you know the rest. 🙂 Been and continue to be in the dilemma of what to do with us as a people. But when you see wrong correct it, in your self first so you will be better able to help your brother or sister, that what scripture says. If you walk away that is on you, not your parents or the group. No matter how weird they may get it is still on you to walk this out 🙂

    1. WOW! I’m only eleven and I will seriously take that into consideration for when I’m older and hopefully won’t fall away from the Torah.😇

  7. The bigger issue is we all, children and parents, need to keep our eyes on Yahushua. If we let the things that men do cause us to turn away from Yahushua, we are essentially blaming Him for another person’s actions.

    This is not a supposed to be yet another man-centered religion, but a relationship with our Creator and His Son. If that is strong, we will not stray. If that is strong, we will seek to encourage the body of Messiah to change its ways (as Danielle has beautifully written) and seek to be the very things we see missing in others.

  8. My wife once had a dream. In it, I was leading this seder-esque meal and my wife, mother-and-law and a few other unrecognizable faces were there. As I stood and began to pray, the Spirit came upon me (take that as you will) and I smiled and said, “Portland, Oregon.” So the next day in real life, I was lifted up something awful. “Surely God is going to use me to unite Portland!” I thought. So I researched Portland and Vancouver, WA and saw that there were seven assemblies, congregations or dance troupes that were “Messianic”. So I began writing them and telling them the dream, calling them to come together because God was about to do something big there, and so forth. But you know one by one, they started writing back, pointing fingers at each other. It turns out once upon a time they were all part of one larger congregation. After reading the third email or so, the Lord spoke to me and said, “Is this what you want?” I think of this experience often. My mother-in-law is a mainstream Christian, and I was at odds with her because of you know, Messianic beliefs. But you know why she was in that dream? Because she supports me more than Messianics do, and she’s a Protestant! Anyway, keep speaking this, I commend you. My exacto-meter is pegged.

  9. Thank you for writing this – as a parent of two 16-year-olds, I realized my dreadful error a few years ago, when my kids started behaving in an ugly and prideful fashion. I had changed since my Torah terrorist days, but I had not passed on those lessons to them. My kids know the Torah, but now I am teaching them to live in the footsteps of our Savior, and to love our Christian and Jewish brothers and sisters and to worship alongside either without judgment, judging each person by their fruit and not by how they do and do not line up with our particular beliefs. I am deeply grieved that in my immaturity, I was turning them into self-righteous little monsters who thought they knew everything because they knew some Torah. Gosh, who did they get that from? Me, of course.

  10. If a children’s faith is not focused on Yeshua as the foundation – it is in the wrong direction. When holding my son in my arms at 2 months old I had the realization that “I am the one responsible for bringing him up in the faith”. I was overcome with a sense of honor and duty. Then, like a cannon fire I heard “but, you are Hebrew Roots”… It was at that moment I swore I would never place him in a community driven with the same directions that I experienced since the age of 16. I would take him to a “Sunday church” before a “Messianic Fellowship” that was far from focused on Yeshua. He will learn about “Jesus” before Torah. He will know it is only through “Jesus” that He experiences the glory and presence of God. He will know it is a humbling thing to be called a Christian – but not to be ashamed of. He will know Yeshua saves. I am not going to teach him to “follow Torah”. I am going to teach him to follow Yeshua.

    Why? Because Yeshua is the goal of the Torah. I want my son to focus on the goal.

    Sure, we will teach him about Shabbat, clean/unclean, Feasts, the wisdom of the writings of the Torah, etc etc etc. We do this daily. He loves the Shabbat candles each Erev Shabbat. These will not be taught as the focus of his faith, though. That would be irresponsible of me as a believing parent.

    I really appreciate the boldness of this article. No doubt it will cause many to become defensive, but it needed to be said. The “faith” that seems to be in the HR/MM is a walk that the younger generation (the most educated generation, mind you) do not want because it is clear that a majority of the motivations are not of God.

    Thank you again for writing this. It gives me great hope for the mentors my son will have in the faith.

  11. THE PARABLE OF THE SOWER
    There will always be arguments over the interpretation of scripture. That is a result of our search for understanding. The test is when we come to different conclusions. Yet there are reasons to split ways with families and fellowships. I won’t fellowship with someone teaching that a man needs to have multiple wives for example, or that its ok to participate in easter egg hunts.

    The bottom line is the falling away of some was predicted by our Messiah. Teaching our children to love everyone even those we don’t agree with should be a priority. But the parable of the sower tells us that the falling away will happen all around us. It’s the difference between the seed falling on good ground and the bad ground. We can’t control how the seed falls. We just need to be faithful and throw the seed.

  12. It’s great to see how many comments this article has already received. It brings joy to my heart that many are seeing how the Torah is not “fulfilled.” Keep it up you all. Love him and love your brothers and sisters. None of us know it all, but let’s keep on learning about how AWESOME our Maker is. Lots of love.

  13. Even at the age of 47 I can relate to much of this post as someone who was in and out of the Hebrew Roots/Messianic movement quickly. The experience was horrific. I witnessed infighting, death threats and a host of other behavior that was 100% the opposite of what we are called to as children of the Most High. The same applies to Christianity. People are leaving because the movement of faith, on this planet, has become toxic in many places. In other places, not so toxic, the doctrine is so far gone that the truth is clear regarding deception. The Word is the Word… we either choose to live by it or we don’t. We are called to love our neighbor as ourselves, not to beat people into submission because they don’t share the exact same interpretation that we do. Thanks for this post… sharing!

    1. Hello Yagub, I am a blogger and musician. I write and sing about issues Torah Keepers face. Through my writing I hope to encourage other to stay faithful but also to become the change we need. If you have more questions you can contact me via the contact page on my blog or email me at danikerrbiz@gmail.com. Thank you!

  14. We’re so close to the Messianic Age, it seems probable that divisions would occur now. God can use divisions to advance His message too. When persecution comes, the divisions will heal. Shalom!

  15. I get it. I was still in the Christian Sunday church when my kids quit and followed their worldly passions. So, don’t think it’s a Messianic thing. Instead, it’s a spiritual thing and every day the Ruach ha Kodesh is calling us to a closer walk with our King. So, now, after 18 years I am integrating 5 Fold Ministry/Gifts of the Spirit walk with Torah walk, you know, like the two sticks put together as one? I am seeing more and more Messianics doing the same. Seeing more love for one another, more stability in our walk…. More prayer! Message to the young ones: Love not the world, trust in Y’shua, keep the Sabbath, study the whole Bible, expect great things from YHWH, do great things for YHWH.

  16. Thank you for this post! I have seen and experienced all the things you mentioned. It has broken my heart throughout the years. I have seven children all have grown up in the Messianic/Torah walk my oldest 26/yo. has walked away from it all, my 24 and 21/yo find it difficult to meet others in this walk, because of the reality of this post. Their peers have left, not only for the reasons stated, but also the lure of the culture we live in and the temptations of the world.
    I have learned to focus on the things we have in common with other believers loving them as we both learn to do better, be better like our perfect example Yeshua. As congregations and home fellowships that we have been a part of we focused on knowledge, dissecting scripture, seeking deeper understanding, even something new. At the expense of doing what Yeshua did. He was loving, giving, serving, merciful, forgiving, visiting those in need…
    As we strive for this balance my family and our fellowship we have grown in more grace, love, and peace. Creating an environment that our children will want to raise their children in. Thank you so much for being real, may we learn from our mistakes and do better!

  17. Reblogged this on Healing for the Nations with Laura Lee, A Modern Day Samaritan Woman and commented:
    I, too, am concerned with the ongoing pettiness and I, too, have been shunned, both as an Adventist and now as Hebrew Roots person. I no longer consider myself Hebrew Roots, I left the Seventh Day Adventist Church for various reasons, one was because I stood up and spoke out against the abuses within the home, the collision with the abusers, and the ongoing shunning I experienced due to my message of love to addicts and those bearing the scars of childhood trauma. It seems like its the same game…legalism and shunning…how sad, and the children and watching…porn, abuses, anal about keeping laws and rules with no love…no mercy and grace…that’s why I rebelled as a teen…thanks for the article!

  18. Great article of discussion Danielle! Some of these reasons are understandable. Some of it is because of our example to them and how we treat our children concerning Torah implementation within our families. Each family is different and there is no exact template that works across the board the same for every family. However, there are two traits that never fail: LOVE and SECURITY.

    It can be difficult for teens to be as excited about this way of life as it was for us. This is because, if your are a first generation Yahshua follower like me, then you probably felt the excitement of discovery because you did the digging and mining for truth yourself. Second generation believers do not always feel the same excitement mainly because it was fed to them as young children. And unfortunately in far too many cases it was force fed to them. As children most of them did not do any grunt work of discovery for themselves so its only natural that their feelings toward Yah’s way of life will differ from their parents. It is important that we as parents understand this.

    Our teens need to begin discovering some things for themselves as it is not always wise to build high walls and razor wire around them as they get older and discover the world around them. Making mistakes, errors, and bad choices are part of life’s learning curve for the young believers in our midst. It is vital part of growth and their own personal testimony that they are writing for themselves. Many of them will distance themselves from Yahshua as they become young adults. Some of them will have a natural desire to experience the forbidden fruit of life. However, as parents, this is not the time to panic. A young adult has much life ahead of them and many negative things(as well as positive things) will happen to them. But the important thing to encourage ourselves in, is that many of them will come back to Yahshua later in life. But this all depends on our testimony as parents. We are the face of Yah to them. And if we refuse to develop Godly character then we cannot expect them to do it either. Life is unpredictable. Our children will grow up with years of history filled with success, setbacks, failures, achievements, and pain.

    Using a forceful hand on our children to obey Torah usually results in negative consequences. The apostle Paul states that, “the law is good if a many use it lawfully”. Torah can be abused and turn things into a nightmare for our families if we do not apply love, respect, patience, and longsuffering toward our children. The fruit of the Spirit is what we should be cultivating into our families, not endless pursuits of how evil the worldly holidays are or harsh discipline for Sabbath infractions. Time is the most important thing you can give to your children when they are young. They desire our attention and time more than drowning them with endless do’s and don’ts.

    I want to encourage all parents out there that our concerned with your children who may leave the faith. This is a possibility, but please understand that your witness is the most powerful to them and in the end only Yahweh can call them into Covenant. Also understand, as your children begin to assert their independence as teenagers, your greatest objective is not to force them into Torah. Your greatest objective is to provide a safe, sound, loving environment and to be the example of Yah’s way of life for them. These things will assist to give them the best opportunity for a solid life. Whether they choose to embrace Torah/Yahshuah as an adult or not, that is ultimately their choice.

    Our children need to see how we love our spouses, how we treat strangers, how we govern our tongues, how we display our joy for life, and how we respect Yah’s way of life. These traits will go the distance for you. Your children need love. They need your ear. They need your arm of support. And they need your understanding even when they don’t feel like keeping Sabbath. Today’s culture is desperately deceptive and demonic which makes it very hard for teens. Understanding how they feel goes much further than being frustrated that your child does not feel the same passion you feel about Torah living. Much love and shalom to you all.

  19. Reading some of the responses to the article reminds me how slippery this slope of Torah implementation into our families can be to our children. Children process the world much differently than we parents do. I am the honored parent of two step sons and a step daughter. I have learned that parenting within a Torah pursuant home is basically on the job training. We do learn as we go (or we should be). Learning comes from listening to other families who have been through the experience and making changes to our Torah implementation within the home. It also comes from habitual prayer by asking Yah to guide you in your decisions as well as humbling oneself and releasing any tyrant thinking Torah minded attitudes. I have read scores of families raising children in Torah based homes and many of the stories are absolutely heartbreaking to the point of tears. Families are ripped apart and kids are separated by parents. This is not Yah’s fruit nor His way of life. Most of this is attributed to two ugly characteristics that we refuse to acknowledge: PRIDE and FEAR.

    We need to understand that if the Bible is not used appropriately then it can become a destructive book if we are not developing the 9 fruits of the Spirit. Character development is what Yah is concerned with the most. Not ridiculous obsessive pursuits of what time the Biblical day begins or ends.

    I quickly saw where I was taking my family within this type of Torah tyrant attitude and it was not healthy nor productive. What works for one family may not always work for another. But the basic rule to always remember is COMMON SENSE. If your fighting your teen due to the refusal to keep Sabbath the way you do or at all, then you need to back off. There is no argument/fighting/discourse/chaos in the home that is worth forfeiting the shalom in your home only to have your relationship fractured with your teen. Remember your teen needs you. Life for them is no easy task. And we have to have common sense.

    I think a lot of us have tossed that into the trash believing that forcing Torah upon our kids is a guaranteed recipe for success in their future. WRONG. I realized not long ago that my attempts to forcefully implement Torah into my step sons was basically about me and not my children. Yah showed me that my attempts or obsession of doing this were rooted in a dirty four letter word called FEAR. I was making it about me and not my step sons. My step sons think differently than I do, and they should. They are teens. They will eventually grow older to be 20, 30, 40, and 50 plus years old and have their own lives with a testimony of their own. My gracious Father showed me to take a step back and take a deep breath. Let go as they get older.

    Another point that is very important to bring up. Many of us in HR/Messianics are feeding FEAR into our children. Allow me to explain. We are barraging them with fearful prophecies/conspiracies of the end times and the coming destruction of the world. Remember, children process this information differently than we adults. And this process within them is neither healthy nor productive. This is detrimental to a child when parents are instilling this type of “doom and gloom” into their young intellects. They do not deserve this! It is intellectually robbing them of their future outlook on life. This needs to stop! We need to be instilling favor, goodness, achievement, goals, prosperity for their future so they can dream and be goal oriented young men and women with hope for their future.

    I want to say if your a parent that is struggling/fighting with your children due to Torah implementation in your home, please make changes to secure peace in your home. This may mean humbling yourself and apologizing to your children. It may mean sacrificing a congregation that is no longer healthy to your family. But the relationship with your children is the utmost important. You will thank yourself for it. I can’t stress that enough. They need you! YHWH does not need any of us parents to be Torah tyrants for He is able to call anyone to repentance Himself. Also you need to forgive yourself. You are not perfect. You are in training. Training involves change and development. But it does not involve pride and imposing your will on someone else.

    There is a good website for people that have been hurt/victimized/used/abused within the Sabbath observing arena. It would serve good to read some of these stories of how bad things can turn out when we abuse Torah implementation within our homes. That website is http://www.exitsupportnetwork.com/child/raised.htm

    Remember you are the face of Yah to your children. And as they get into the teen years and begin to assert their independence, learn to trust Yah and let go of the leash. Cover them in prayer to Yah. Let them make mistakes. Let them begin to choose(within reason of course). And release the pressure upon yourself as a parent.

    May Yah bless you and keep you for he loves your kids as much as you do.

  20. Your article and the heart of it has given me a lot of food for thought. I was born and raised in a non-denomination Christian church, spending my Sundays/Wednesdays in a service, going to youth group, going to a Christian school and then….turned 18, started college, and discovered my POV had been grossly slanted by the environment I was raised in. I spent many years seeking the “why” of my faith as well as the “what is the truth?” “Who is God?” And many other questions. Throughout those years I still attended church, turned away and sinned terribly, tried to attend church again (feeling shunned or that it was just social hour without any substance or depth)
    The last couple of years I’ve been reading about the Messianic movement and being someone of Ashkenazi Jewish descent, it greatly appealed to me. I LOVED the observance of the Sabbath, celebrating the feasts, focusing on Torah and learning new things. I found my heart and mind begun to stir, I started praying again, I started reading scripture and seeking relationship with God, trying to understand this new approach to faith that was different from how i had been raised but similar as well. I started reading “the Gospels” and finding an understanding, as well as more questions fill my mind. Since I was in my own in all of this (my husband is not a man of faith) I decided to start seeking out fellowships, mostly online since where I live there is only 1 and I just didn’t feel led to attend, something didn’t seem quite right. Throughout my searches for fellowship, all I found was divisiveness, nitpicking over the perfection of observing the feasts, Torah vs Talmudic “law”, arguments over whether I used the name Jesus or Yeshua or Yehusha, arguments about using the name Adonai, Yah, Yahweh and so on and so forth. “You’re doing it wrong!” was all I heard.
    I don’t think it’s just a generational thing based on how or when you were raised. I find myself adrift, not lacking in faith or belief, but adrift, wanting to find a fellowship where I am accepted, mentored, loved, and not belittled for the details. Where is the Christ-like behavior that is so touted? Where are the true image-bearers? Where is the help? It’s not just the teens raised in the movement but also the 40-something’s that love the Lord their God with all their heart, soul, and mind, looking for a place to share and worship.

  21. Dani,
    You probably don’t remember me. I met you last fall at a gathering at McFarlands. Jan forwarded this link to those in our fellowship. Hammer meet nailhead. Those who came out of the church to be Torah followers are all in different places. We all are discovering things about our faith. We are finding through study where perhaps the church has taught doctrine we still cling to. The division almost always comes down to that. Anymore I don’t consider myself Messianic or Hebrew Roots. I’m a believer. I’m discovering more about my Father and learning what it meNs to be his child. We make the physical changes in terms of diet and Sabbath and feasts, but in some ways those are the easy things to change. What’s hard is to examine all the other stuff. The theology and practices. We all need to know each other’s stories better and then, in love, accept them and move on staying focused on the common goal to be agents of change in this world. God’s ambassadors. Man doesn’t know what God does. Sometimes the answer is not a hard right or wrong. It’s yes and yes. It’s learning and listening and loving. Three L’s that we are not very good at. The impact is felt in your generation. Love your heart and your words. Thanks for the reminder. I blog as well on WordPress at “I Am My Fathers Daughter.” Blessings to you! And thank you.
