I still remember when we hit a critical time in my son’s life, when I was concerned over his spiritual growth and walk with God. He hadn’t done anything wrong, but I could see there were changes coming. I had homeschooled him since 4th grade and I recognized the need for outside influence to begin to enter into the picture. I started to pray for the Lord to provide where I lacked, for people who could come alongside my son and encourage him and ask the hard questions. I could see the natural shift coming as he turned 15, when he wanted to seek out male advice and mentoring more than from me. As my son got involved in youth group, the Lord provided wonderful mentors who built relationship with him.
