Parenting, leadership, freedom through self-control, spiritual maturity, emotional health, the nature of our Father, and heaven and hell, Danny’s thoughts and gracious communication are empowering and transformative. It was an honor to discuss the unpunishing nature of God with Danny!

Quotes:
“The role of authority and how it behaves has to change if you are to be successful in loving your kids on purpose.”

“We have got to fight to exalt love over the issue so that love is the ruler of the culture of our home instead of obedience and compliance…”

“We are empowering people with our authority, not dominating people with our authority.”

“Earth is freedom practice.”

Jason noted that “The person with the most self-control is the person with the greatest freedom. Danny responded, “It’s kind of an allusion that obeying rules is some sign of character… That would suggest that the place with the most rules would produce the people with the most character. If that were true, then prisons would have people with the most character. And the only place that has more rules, second to prison, is religious structures.”

“There are lots of rules in religion because leaders are afraid of the people’s freedom…”

“The true demonstration of your character is freedom. If you could do whatever you want, what would you do? There’s your character.”

Danny Silk is an author, speaker, and president of Loving on Purpose
