I will never forget a moment during my sophomore year at Stanford when I first realized a new way of looking at the world. That year was one of great spiritual growth for me thanks to my involvement with Campus Crusade for Christ. I was standing near the Tressider bollards thinking about how we can learn about God because of our parents. He is like our parents (at least the good ones), so we can know something about Him. Then I realized that perhaps it was the other way around: perhaps God made families the way they are in the first place so that we would be able to learn about Him. Perhaps other things in our world are signs meant to point us to Him.
