One of the most powerful things we can do for another person, adult or child, is to hold a belief that they can reach their full potential, even if circumstances seem to portray that the opposite is true.

I have seen time and time again in my work how despite all evidence to the contrary, a parent’s belief in a child transcends the laws of nature and creates positive change.

Our Creator has this belief in each one of us, and the way ahead is already lit. We just have to put one foot in front of the other, walking together and encouraging each other.
