Find the teachable moments in life

“Because Dad was a natural teacher, the whole of our time with him was a learning experience. He would talk about things social, religious, political, anything really. He would quiz us all the time about the capital cities of other countries. He would discuss the news with us in a way that made it alive.” – Tim Costello, minister and CEO of World Vision Australia
