My Alabama Shaw Family on My Father’s Side From 1861-2014

Rites of passage in families are better for children than “things passage of life,” which saps their substance and joy from everything

Hi everyone,

Without family rites of passage, some parents give their boys and girls and young adults an abundance of “things.”

The children grow up empty, for there is nothing exciting left. All boys and girls and young adults need to be excited about the new family event or experience they will get, due to their age or accomplishments. My family’s story goes even deeper in my heart. It teaches me that each area of life should be lived in the right order. If certain steps are skipped or reversed, there is the likelihood that children and adults will miss some of their best life.

Hence, I feel that we all should live each stage of life that is appropriate for good living and not copy our peers, young or older. Then, we will get God’s best out of life, in dating, courtship, married, and unmarried life. I know, for certain, that my daddy, aunts, and uncles lived, according to their age and, in many cases, they dressed appropriately and looked younger than they were, and their marriages were awesome, with one uncle declaring that he would have sex with his beloved wife, until he died. He lived to be a centenarian, and one aunt-in-law couldn’t keep her hands off my uncle. She frequently smiled and touched him to our enjoyment.

Help your family to enjoy each stage of life and feel fulfilled.
