Writing a letter to your confirmation candidate

It seems that one of the biggest events in confirmation preparation in this country is the letters of support to be given to the confirmation candidates during their mandatory retreats.

I have three such letters saved on this blog:

Confirmation letter to my daughterConfirmation letter to my fourth sonConfirmation letter to to my third son
I've asked my children what they remember about the letter they got from me and their dad, and also what they remembered about the letters they received. 
The answer was not much, or at least nothing specific. In general they were happy to have gotten a bag full of letters and there was a sense of feeling loved and supported. I guess that's the main thing - for them to have a sense that this is an important step in their spiritual growth, and that people they know, love and respect have taken the time out of their lives to let them know that!

This is interesting. Have you ever gotten into a discussion over the different meanings of words in the old testament and wished you understood Hebrew? 

The Old Testament was written in Hebrew. Jesus and his disciples read the Holy Scriptures and prayed in Hebrew daily.
Hebrew is the language of Moses, King David, and so many heroes of our faith. Learning Hebrew brings you into a much deeper understanding of the Bible and strengthens your faith.

Can you imagine you and your kids learning to read, write and speak the very language of Jesus and our heroes of the Bible spoke?

  • What if this could unlock an amazing and much deeper understanding of the word of God?
  • What if learning Hebrew can open doors bigger than you could ever know in your life?
  • What if this can bring you a personal revival like never before?

Is Hebrew too hard to learn?

No, not at all!  According to Ana, it's easier than you think. 
In fact, one of the things that makes Hebrew so easy to learn is that the Hebrew letters always have the same sounds, unlike the English language that has many different sounds to many letters and it's so confusing with so many exceptions.
“Hebrew is to a large extent a phonetic language with a relatively small vocabulary. Generally, it is based on a simple three-letter root system which provides a helpful memory aid in the formation of various verbs and nouns; nothing like the complexity of many modern European languages.”
- David Bivin, Understanding the Difficult Words of Jesus.
