Teaching our kids sometimes involves slowing down and digging in the dirt.
What does this teach?
In our busy world, how often do we slow down enough to notice, much less analyze life’s teachable moments? Teachable moments are great ways to spend time, grow relationships, and impart wisdom to our kids. And if the pressures and time constraints of life make finding teachable moments difficult for you then consider carving out a small block of time each day or week to carve out a small garden in your backyard.
Why? Because as we have discovered at Shepherd’s Hill Academy tending a garden is full of life principles, lessons and responsibilities, teachable moments, and even exercise. All of these are components of cultivating and growing spiritual, physical, and emotional health.
