Hello there! I hope your resumption to work from the Easter holiday has been smooth and you are having a great time at work. If you are not then something is wrong! Don’t say I didn’t tell you..!

So, put on your seat belts ladies and gentlemen. LOL

This one is to every parent, even soon-to-be parents and future parents and we have a scriptural family as our case study for today, the family of Mr. & Mrs. Isaac. What went wrong in Isaac’s and Rebekah’s home, father of the twin Esau and Jacob? Some mistakes to avoid and to take note of as parents. I will share just two (2) today.
