One day, when she was about 19 years old, she resentfully said to me: "You always said I could do anything I want. Well it's not true!" I looked at her with sadness and thought, "Why did you listen to the naysayers?" Do you know who hurt her the worst? Other girls. Who knocked the confidence out of them?!
The inspirational Always commercial below is excellent and I applaud them for it. The one missing element is the most important element: faith. It is important to believe in oneself but that confidence must be cultivated within faith and nurture of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Every human being is put here by God for a purpose.
Be a positive source of encouragement for your daughters and granddaughters and always point them to Jesus Christ. Through faith in Him they will develop a real faith in what they can do and why they are here. God bless all our children and grandchildren. -- Mark.
