Unlocking Success: Empowering Back-to-School Conversations with Your Child

"Every child is created uniquely by God. God puts a certain formula in the heart of every child. And it is the parents' challenge to figure out the combination. We need to spend time studying, looking, listening, and observing."

- Author: David Jeremiah
