Building Healthy Families – A Role not a Race

Posted by Ooltewah UMC on Sunday, May 7, 2017

OUMC begins a new message series called “Building Healthy Families.” This series will run Mother’s Day through Father’s Day.

No human job is more challenging and taxing than raising children.  Parenting ranks among our world’s toughest jobs.  This is true whether parenting is done by two biological parents, a single parent, grandparents or grandparent, an aunt, an uncle or a god-parent.  The toughness of the role is amplified when children are raised in a foster or adoptive family.  No arrangement of guardians for raising children is easy.  While parenting can be amazingly rewarding, it can be amazingly testing and disappointing as well.
