January/February 2015—Being Yourself                                                 


Each of us is created in God’s image and dearly loved by our Creator. Because of this, each of us is of infinite value and worth. We want this issue to help children experience this sense of belovedness and uniqueness. Grounded in this experience, we are more able to be ourselves, to withstand those influences that tempt us to imitate others or feel that we’re not “good enough,” to accept who we are, and to make peace with our weaknesses and celebrate our strengths. And it is as we come to understand our own belovedness that we are more able to value and respect the worth and uniqueness of those around us.
