Today is a very special day. Our first born son turns 21. There is something very significant when one reaches this milestone. Not only is it a milestone for him, but it’s a milestone for us as well. Our son Cameron, is one of the eight reasons why this blog was started in the first place. His life is a testimony to God’s faithfulness when you keep sowing with vision.
You see, he was my strong-willed child.
And now, at 6’4″ tall, he is a full grown man, who both loves Jesus and family with all his heart.
I can’t help but tear up….
After years of constant movement and more energy than could ever be explained, now he is pouring his life into young kids. Mentoring and shepherding them weekly, Cameron is more than a piano instructor, he’s also a life coach. By rewarding his students each week for their bible reading, listening skills, and practice, he understands the value of teaching the whole child ; the tangibles and the intangibles. The discipline and habits he has built in are an inspiration to me daily as I listen in to his lessons from my kitchen sink. I’m constantly challenged by him, without him even knowing, to reach higher. Now at 21, he has met the 10,000 hour rule in his field of study, piano. In the book Outliers, author Malcolm Gladwell says that it takes roughly ten thousand hours of practice to achieve mastery in a field. He continues to sow in his field of study, while also teaching others.
As a mom, watching the Lord move through him, encourages and inspires me as I pour into the younger kids, and to keep sowing with vision. Hosea 10:12
I encourage you today…to keep pouring out your life for your family. You won’t ever regret it.
Happy 21st birthday Cameron True!
You are Loved
