Rev. Barry Ebert
One of our beloved columnist and feature writers, Rev. Barry Ebert
, is a man of many talents.
Rev. Barry Ebert is the Youth Director and Assistant Minister at Mile Hi Church in Lakewood, Colorado.
He has been a facilitator of the Love and Logic parenting workshops for twenty years, teaching at various schools, churches, and community centers in Colorado.
Rev. Ebert is also a singer/songwriter with four CDs of original music.
One of his
most recent songs, "Beautiful Child," showcases Ebert's musical talent and his
insights as a parent and youth director.
explains the inspiration for this song: "As a youth director, I've
had the opportunity to see many 'giant souls with short legs' grow up and leave the nest.
It's a bittersweet moment, when we send our children out into the world, and I think it's important for them to remember the truth about themselves.
They've got all they need within them to make their dreams come true.
When our oldest son was leaving for college, this song came through.
It always makes me smile when I sing it."
