Reckless Abandon

Reckless Abandon is the story of David Sitton, who went to the unreached people of Papua, New Guinea.  This makes a marvelous read aloud for children and clearly demonstrates the power of the gospel to overcome formidable darkness..
One paragraph jumped out and choked me.  It has everything to do with raising and training children:

"I didn't go charging ahead, ready or not, into the next lesson.  The end goal was not an abundance of information for the brain, not even biblical information.  The goal was transformation of life.  A lesson wasn't learned until it was implemented into consistent practice.  A forgotten lesson was a useless one."
