“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it” (Prov. 22: 6).
The Amazingly Authentic Confidence Program at Grambling State University helps grow the self-esteem of girls between the ages of 5 and 19 . Girls in this age range are considered most vulnerable.
The program goes to some unusual lengths. Five year old Jourenii Johnson was recently given the chance to teach a group of college students. With total confidence, the little girl – who wants one day to become a teacher – informed the class that bullying is not a good thing. She, also, instructed students not to use their cell phones in class.
Kudos to Grambling State! How beautiful it is to see our children nurtured!
One cannot help but think of all those who do not receive the care they deserve. For their sake, we must keep striving: to educate the public about abuse; to rescue those being abused; to prosecute predators; and to set firm safeguards in place to prevent future abuse.
There was a child born 2000 years ago who brought hope and love into this broken world. His desire for us is that we live joyfully; that we see ourselves as precious children of the One True God, and raise our own children in peace.

Reblogged this on Domestic Abuse Survivor Hangout and commented:
You are a Survivor and have so much to offer victims to become survivor’s
Thank you for your reblog. I agree completely that survivors are more than just victims. ❤
Charming and heartwarming. Wishing you a year of continued spiritual growth and prosperity, Anna.
And the same to you, Diana. ❤
This is a wonderful programme and I hope it thrives as do the young people who take part in it. The message of hope in Christ is a wonderful and uplifting support for us all. Thank you Anna.
You are most welcome, Marie. 🙂 You have such a kind heart! I agree that this is a wonderful program. I’m sure there are other good programs, but we do not hear much positive news. Only negative news is reported (and amplified). That can be terribly discouraging for anyone trying to address a social problem. Thankfully, we can rely on Christ to sustain us, whether or not the world offers us encouragement.
Love and Blessings,
Love and Blessings back to you dear Anna. 🙂
Mamma mia! What kind of hours do you keep? I thought I was the insomniac?!
Ha ha ha! You’re too funny! I think we are all insomniacs to some degree! :))
Yes- AMEN! 😍😍
Thank you for sharing – I think we sometimes forget there is ugliness in the world and the people who suffer at the hands of those who inflict it are so in need of help and understanding of us all. Thank you for sharing!
Thanks for caring!
