It is so important to know and love who you are. You know, that person inside the skin you're living in. So many children don't know who they are. They are listening and internalizing what everyone else says they are. The media tries to place certain stereotypes and labels on our children, and without a firm foundation at home to instill in them who they really are, they become lost.
It's so important to tell our children who they are and whose they are. Who created them and that they have a purpose while here on this earth. Create a dialogue with your children and ask them this question, "Who are you to you?" I wonder what answers they will come up with. We have to remind our children every day that they are loved, appreciated, healed, whole, and beautiful ones who were created for so much more. It's not about what the next music "icon" says you ought to be. It's not about the latest dance move or sneakers. It's not about the latest trend. All of those superficial things fade away and are replaced by another superficial thing. It's truly about who you are to you on the inside of you. Who are you to you?
