How EARLY it Starts

We don't have television in our home. We don't focus on external beauty. Where does this come from and why does it start so early?

Doing Stacia's hair this a.m.

Stacia: Mom, do you think Ricky will think my hair is pretty.

Mom: I'm sure he will, but isn't it enough for Daddy and your brothers to think you are pretty?

Stacia: I don't know if they think I'm pretty.

Mom: Let's ask...of course they do and have told her that....

I maintain that deep within every girls heart is the desire to be the princess, to be loved, to be cherished and special and pretty....because we can't blame this one on the media.

It sort of saddened me...but then it made me all the more determined to be sure the girls know how much their brothers and father admire them, how much we admire their internal qualities, how very beautiful they are in our eyes.

Choosing Joy!
