Welcome to the ball park! The baseball diamond is in front of us and moms are the right field line. Dads are the left field line. Moms and dads take responsibility for what happens on this field between these lines. They coach the players, instruct each batter as they approach the plate, tell the runners when it is time to advance and inform them when to pause at the bag for a better opportunity. Coaching… guidance… direction… leadership… shepherding… these are all part of the call to lead this team. Moms and dads feel responsible for the outcome of the game. They love the players, sacrifice for them…want nothing more than for them to win this unbelievably difficult game called life.
