It is difficult not living near our family. We are not complaining but our kids are missing out on family history and shared stories. Recently the grandkids and Grandpa had some time to reflect on Dad’s military service. Right out of high school Dad joined the Navy and due to his propensity for math he was able to get placed on a Submarine. He served on two submarines during his time Navy the sweatshirts the boys are sporting are from the USS Croaker. Why is family history so important? For our kids it provides a glimpse into a long interaction between our family members and God. Our family stories are always enveloped in God’s presence and work in our lives.
