Excerpt from Book Two in the Foundational Faith In Truth Book Series.
Free To Do What?
“We should never try to make our children over in our image, or an imagined state of what we consider perfect for them. They have their own God-given personality specifically designed so they can express themselves to the world.
We are not talking about the lack of leadership and discipline as some teach today regarding freedom of expression. That type of freedom can create chaotic thinking and living. The so-called freedom of expression of the world, turns children into an unholy environment of evil and tells them to do anything that comes into their mind and that is freedom.
They are left without guidance, or any form of protection, they push them into the hellish life that is exploding around them, and tell them to do anything they want to do. That is not freedom that is fatal neglect from anyone that is supposed to love and care for the child.
Children need to feel the nurturing love of their parents, or other caring people, to guide them away from destructive thinking and actions. While carefully guiding them, we must allow the individual to bring forth, their God-given talents, gifts and good expressions that will represent who they are meant to be.
People must first find themselves, to discover their own individuality. That individuality can be covered up, by coming under the influence of the strongest personality of someone in their life. If they come under complete control of someone else it will damage them, that dominant control will rob them of developing their own individuality, and keep them in bondage to their dominant control.
They will become dependent and helpless, sometimes to the point that they can’t live comfortably in life, and they become self-made outcasts. Family members can manipulate other family members, under the belief that they are doing it out of love, that domination becomes harmful, instead of helpful.
Trying to be like someone else can be harmful. Every individual should learn to accept themselves as they really are, not a carbon copy of someone else. So, you should accept yourself to make peace with who you are as an individual. You must never remake yourself into what someone else wants you to be. You should learn to love yourself. You need to love being who you really are, and accept your unique personality.” Joan Jessalyn Cox
Feedback From Friends
My husband’s cardiologist turned to us as he started out the door after his last checkup, and he said as he nodded toward me.
“Anyone who reads your book will learn something.” I had given him my book at his last visit. I greatly appreciated his kind words.
If you have friends or family who have written a book and you liked it, please give them a review or at least some feedback. It is encouraging to anyone who has spent so much time writing and researching when they write a book, to hear something favorable about their work.
Another friend that I had given my book to, because she’s always been good to me through the years. She said with a smile on her face. “I love this book. It’s clearly laid out, easy to read and I keep going back to it , to read again and again. It makes me feel good, every time I pick it up and anywhere I start to read.” Don’t you love friends who are always so supportive of you?
I would accept it as a great compliment if those who read the books will write a review that I can use in the book, on my website or in my brochures.
