Raising Children Who Shine

"I want their lives to always feel full and purpose-driven. I want to watch them as they continue to sprout new feathers on their wings and as they share their gifts with the world." From the blog of regular contributor Debbie, who writes about her "four angel daughters."

You have to see the photos of "Little Miss Fierce," Angel Daughter Number Four dancing hip-hop. They're as good as hearing the beat of the music itself. You'll want to dance to your own lively beat.

And don't miss what their momma has to say. On an earlier post, she talks about the kind of encouragement she received:

"My dad is a tough man, but he is also an incredible cheerleader. In so many ways, I am who I am because of him. A realist who chooses to believe that we can all do great things.

Strive to do something great. Not perfect, just fantastic."

Peggy, thank you. I am humbled by your belief in me. My girls are always a work in progress, as am I. But I believe in them and sometimes that is the extra push that is needed.

Love,
Deb

Seems to me that that belief is doing great things. Also, that your dad is right: you're a fine writer. But I think you're already writing. Blogging is writing. It "counts."
