Strengthening families through biblical principles.
Focus on the Family addresses the use of biblical principles in parenting and marriage to strengthen the family.
I think this is influenced by our cultural norms.
I tend to be more emotional than I wish I was. It's one of the things I'd change about myself if I could. When I went to Brazil for my first mission trip, I was an emotional wreck as I took it all in. I was like that all week! Brazilian men are not that way. They were probably thinking, "These American men... They tear up a lot.".
For me, when I have those moments of clarity and encounter the Lord in an extraordinary way, when my children do something particular to make me extra-proud, and when I see someone brought to faith. I don't weep over sad things really. More so, happy things.
No it is not a weakness to show emotion. It truly takes more strength in our society to have/show real emotions.
this, a million times. i never cry and i wish i could. it's healthy and therapeutic.
did you know that in ancient greece it was a sign of manliness to cry when it came down to it?
