“The first time I really thought about what I wanted to do in life was a few months before high school graduation.”
My mom spoke those words on a recent visit, after reading through the kids’ compasses we’d completed in our homeschool.
She was impressed that her grandchildren, at ages nine, ten, and eleven, could articulate possibilities for their future–and that they recognized the way their lives could reach and touch others.
Shortly after Mom left last week I got a text message from her: “Could you email me more info about that compass? I’d like to do one myself!”
