How True North and Magnetic North Impact Your Life

Jul 11, 2013 / Character     

As a Florida native, I’ve done a lot of boating, hunting, and camping over the years and have been in a lot of secluded areas. When you’re out in the middle of nowhere, it’s especially important to have a navigational device that you can rely upon to tell you where you are and where you need to go—north, south, east, or west.  In navigation, it’s important to understand the difference between true north and magnetic north.  True north never changes, but magnetic north does.  In our ever-changing culture, it’s always important to point our kids to the never-changing true north. Here’s more on how true north and magnetic north impact your life.
