G. K. Chesterton, an English journalist, once wrote, “The really great person is the person who makes every person feel great.”

When two people interact, they are both changed. The change can be for the better, or not. Whether our influence is helpful or hurtful, positive or negative, depends on whether we give each other the gift of encouragement.

Parents – Beware….

Depression!  You’ve seen it…heard about it…felt it…yet!  As a parent, you might not understand it through the eyes of your child.

And you might find - as I do - that starting the day eating clean makes it a little easier to eat right all day long!
