    Thank you, Jane, for this powerful post.

    Just today I found myself commenting on the beauty of a new friend’s 12-year old granddaughter. “She’s beautiful!” I said. I saw beauty in her posture, her inner strength, her temperment, and her attitude; however, I’m sure people only heard my complement with an eye toward her outward appearance.

    Thank you for reminding me of the power of words with our children.

      Regina, thank you for sharing your powerful observation. Lots of work for everyone to do to shift the attention away from appearance to character and inside goodness!
