"It is impossible for a father or mother to spend the majority of their time and mental focus on activities of their own personal interest and still have anything left for their children. There is no substitute for time. We are lying to ourselves if we think we can just spend quality time with the children, because we aren't willing to give them quantity, and still be able to maintain a heart-keeping relationship. It takes time and effort to build the kind of relationship that keeps a child's heart. Investing that time is essential." -Steve and Teri Maxwell, Keeping our Children's Hearts, page 80
