This is not normally the time of year I think about traditions, however, last night as Garth was giving my kids back to school father's blessings, it was on my mind. My dad gave us blessings before school started each year and it was always a comfort to me. Before Garth gave Carter his blessing, he asked if there was anything in particular he was concerned or worried about for school. Carter shrugged and said "when the Lord is with you, what is there to worry about?" I am grateful for the priesthood in my home, glad to have the example of faithful kids, and glad my parents started many great traditions for our family.
