What am I talking about?
I’m talking about CHILDREN…
They can be your own, or nephews, or nieces, or cousins, or friends’ children…. Regardless of your relationship to them, children are true blessings.
As I reflect upon my life, I realize how there have been times when I’ve been so focused on growing my business that I haven’t been intentional with my time for the children with whom I interact.
Sure, life has different seasons….
Spring… when things are new and growing.
Summer… when things are fun and flowing.
Fall… when things are different and changing.
Winter… when things are slow and regrouping.
My epiphany / revelation is… “Regardless of the season and how busy I am, I can still MAKE time to share wisdom, encouragement and resources with the children with whom I connect.
Here is Jade, my 3-year-old daughter, holding her baby brother!
Whenever I look at this picture, it just melts my heart because they are so innocent and precious.
I am clear that life will come at them like it does for all of us… with opportunities, challenges, triumphs and setbacks.
And for them (JUST LIKE ALL CHILDREN) to maximize their true Godly potential, they will need strong values, healthy self-esteem, and Godly character to manifest their greatness.
So who is going to help develop our children?
Yes, teachers are doing their best.
And yes, most parents have good intentions.
But what about you and me?
The African proverb, “It takes an entire village to raise a child” is so true, especially today with all that is going on in our society.
For you to be where you are today, you had some adults make the time to uplift you with encouragement, support and motivation.
Be it a coach, a teacher, a pastor, a boss, a neighbor, a store clerk…
It’s the little things in life that truly matter.
Realize this…. Just one conversation can make the difference for a lifetime.
So I’m asking you to join me in making time for the children in your life where you share encouragement, love and support so they know they can and will be positive and productive with their life.
