I learned that God loves me–He died for my sins, after all,
that family is the most important thing on earth,
that I am called to teach and to write.

I guess I had a pretty great childhood, (thanks, Mom and Dad) because I understood at least the beginnings of all of these, even before middle school. But something about the independence of  college, marriage, and parenthood brought them into crystal clarity in my life.
