The Children’s Ketubah Project
From the book: We are not perfect parents. For some reason, YHVH chose to give children to less than perfect parents. I don’t know why, but I have to believe that He knows best. Sometimes I feel that I learn more from my children than my children learn from me. That may be part of His plan. But the essential point is that I need help. I get busy fixing meals and settling fights and washing clothes, and I forget how important my job is. I have been given a little person, a soul, to care for and raise. The things they learn while in my care will stay with them for the rest of their lives. Yes, ultimately they will stand on their own two feet. They will have to answer for their own choices and we cannot force them down a certain path. But our influence cannot be underestimated. We must realize our position in the molding of a life. This ketubah is designed to be a constant reminder of our job and our delight as their parent. We need to be reminded, at least I do.

“After reading author Heidi Cooper’s question “What if we wrote a ketubah for our children? “ my desire to take on the Ketubbah project challenge quickly became real. Heidi’s transparent vision has certainly flowed to me. I feel her excitement and encouragement to grow families closer together as she entrusts her readers to include our Heavenly Creator in all aspects of their families’ lives.” -Carmen
