A New Perspective

Uploaded: Oct 31, 2013
Over the past week, you may have seen this video clip, A New Perspective, where moms describe themselves and then hear what their children have to say. It's quite powerful and is another reminder that our children are incredibly perceptive.

While watching this clip, I find myself focusing on the children rather than on the mothers. What a powerful lesson to learn that your perspective is important.

We need your support now more than ever. Can we count on you?
