Afternoon Xander and Tori,
I hope you had a good weekend and got to do lots of fun things. Your dad and I went around looking for models for me to put together. He enjoyed going to Hobby Lobby because he got to look for parts for his new drone airplane. We also enjoyed just talking and spending time together. I got to finish my third podcast which can be found here. I been reading a great book by Stormie Omartian called the Power of a Praying Parent. So I been working on doing that every day. Your dad and I are planning on going and getting me a journal just so I can write down things to pray for the two of you about. Prayer is the greatest power a parent or step-parent can ever do to protect their children from the schemes of the devil. So since I understand I cannot be involved in your day to day lives for the next 3950 days it is the least I can do.
I wanted to let the two of you know that when you are married one of the most important things you can do is make sure you go to church with your spouse. The routine of going to church every Sunday has helped me and your father survive these difficult times. The church gives us the strength to remember how our marriage is supposed to be. When you have Christian people supporting your marriage then you can endure anything. I honestly believe I think that is the difference between your great-grandparents generation and your parents’ generation. The lack of religious influence and reminder that marriage is a verb and not a noun. The reason I say this is because marriage is the union of two people who have to endure trials and hardships. There is joy but if you are not willing to endure the hardships you should not marry that person and confess to God that you will be with that person until death. Wedding vows should never be done out of a matter of convenience but should be done out of a lifelong commitment to one another.
In media today you often here about red, blue, and purple pills. Your father and I live in a purple world state because we believe that men need to go back to the way men used to be. Society has killed our Alpha (red pilled) men and left us with beta (blue) men. I believe Tori you deserve a man to take care of you, who will protect you, someone like your dad. Xander, I believe, you need to be the man your father has become. I believe when the two of you make your commitments to be and follow the standard social contracts that men and women are commanded by God to follow, it is only then will you find true happiness in your life. God commands women to be submissive to their husbands and husbands are to leaders of their households. Therefore when you do get married someday my hope is that you will read the book your father and I had to when going through our marriage prep courses. Xander my hope is you will read this before taking a future wife. Tori my hope is that you will read this before you marry your future husband. I hope that the two of you will pray a lot with your future spouses before and after your marriage because prayer and God is the foundation for a successful marriage.
I love and miss you both.
Hugs and Kisses.
