Addicted to Your Children

Here's another outline from the ladies' conference I attended last month. This session was taught by Mrs. Krysten Vestal, whose husband is on staff of Grand View Baptist Church in Beavercreek, OR. She was raised in a very strongly Christian family, and she and her husband are now raising their children in the same type of family. She had some very good points about addicting ourselves to our children, and she was also very easy to follow and takes notes from! ;) I even made this one into a real outline!
