Around these parts there is a couple that many of my friends and I go to for parenting advice. Dirk & Robin Meadows. They are wise, totally laid back, non-judgmental, totally in love with each other and actually pretty dog gone fun. And they have seven kids. SEVEN KIDS. God love ’em. Just the other day Natalie Witcher was sharing a parenting trial with those closest to her, of which I am one, thankyousokindly, and she was gettin’ after it. I mean really gettin’ after it. She could have preached it. At one point she said, “I told JT that he needed to call Dirk Meadows and see what he would do.” As she was sorting through it all, Robin swooped in and gave the ever-so-needed words of wisdom. And we all went, “Ah. Right. Mmmm.” While we all consider Robin to be one of the girls, she is still light years ahead of us on raising kids and learning how to handle the obstacles in her way. Dirk, her tender warrior, is equally wise and knows exactly how to steer someone toward life and godliness. Their humility is evident to all. They are amazing parents. How do I know this? I know their kids.
