I have a Strong and Brave 5 year old daughter. She’s also strong-willed and full of personality. I hope, that as she continues to grow up, she knows that she was fearfully and wonderfully made.* My hope is that she grows up knowing that she’s kind of a big deal. I plan on showing her this video by Chris Stefanik. I hope the same things for my son, too. I will continue to pray that as their mother I can help them know that they are beloved children of God, who were made in His image and likeness.
*Psalm 139: 13-16
You formed my inmost being;
you knit me in my mother’s womb.
I praise you, because I am wonderfully made;
wonderful are your works!
My very self you know.
My bones are not hidden from you,
When I was being made in secret,
fashioned in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw me unformed;
in your book all are written down;
my days were shaped, before one came to be.
