dear little girl,



dear little girl who hates her mirror,

you're perfect just the way you are. cliche, I know, but true. you're beautiful, and people smile when they see you smile. Don't forget just who you are.

dear little girl whose only dream is size zero jeans,

skinny is over-rated. Healthy isn't skin-and-bones. If you don't accept yourself now, you never will, no matter your size. You are God's masterpiece. Remember that.

dear little girl who is afraid to love again,

there is a Guy who won't break your heart; who will hold you close and won't let you fall; who will never deceive or use you. Find Him, and you will find healing.

dear little girl who grew up too soon,

life has been tough on you, babe. But chin up--people love you. And so does God.

dear little girl who feels alone,

everyone does sometimes. But it doesn't have to last. You'll never be alone as long as you have Jesus.

dear little girl who thinks she's reached a dead end,

back up. Turn around. And hope; pray.

"There may not be an open door, but there is always an open window."


dear little girl who just needs a hug,

here's one.

look around. do you see the people suffering? ordinary girls, ordinary lives; hurting hearts. hidden wounds. struggling souls. forget yourself, and reach out. I dare you.
