One life-lesson I want so badly to teach my children and instill in them as young as possible is to be their own person. To have confidence in themselves, yet be humble and full of grace with those around them. The type of self-assurance that comes not from ego but from knowing that God created them just the way they are. I want them to be able to withstand any potential feeling of not fitting into this crowd or that crowd. I want to equip them to be able to rebuff even the strongest negative peer pressure.
