Chapter 1, Page 15, Book 20

Be the reason someone believes in good people.

Author Unknown

January 15th - be a good example.

A truly good person will speak truth, act with truth and stand for Truth.  A truly good person is not afraid to think from their heart; therefore allowing nonconformist decisions, viewpoints, and perspectives to lead their life.  By following their heart, they stand with their concience, and only with God.

Suzy Kassem

A role model is a person whose behavior, example, or success is or can be emulated by others.  An example being the way young fans will idolize and imitate professionals athletes or entertainment artists.  Some people  deliberately  try to set a good example but not always to that extent.

Good people do not need laws for them to act responsibly, while bad people will find a way around the laws


Its a big responsibility to be a good role model, a person that influences others by serving as an example.  We all make mistakes now and then, but one mistake should not define who we are.  A mistake is simply a way to learn and grow. Good people are not perfect, but know how to react when something bad happens.  

We all try to better ourselves, but perfection is not possible in this world.  To be the best you can be with what you have is my desire.  The reason why perfection is an illusion is because the standard is always changing.  Truth is we are perfect just the way we are.  Love yourself despite all your flaws and imperfections. You are a very unique and special person,  just the way you are.

All that is necessary for evil to prevail is for good people to do nothing.

I always remind myself to be somebody that makes everyone feel like somebody. Perfect!

BE THAT PERSON THAT MAKES EVERYBODY FEEL LIKE SOMEBODY! Not every one can do that. We all have the ability to be a good example, but I had a BIL S.A. Lankford who seemed to do just that. When he was speaking to you you knew YOU COUNTED!
I did enjoy the read, it was so true. Good advice, hints, and common sense.

Speaking (only) for myself, the biggest misconception I carried was believing heroes/role models were bullet-proof. What a delight when I realized they make mistakes just like the rest of us. Perfection is, indeed, an illusion.

I think you are a great role model, Ma, for living a life of gratitude!



i think alot of the problems in todays world stem from bad role models. i am not perfect, made my share of mistakes and i paid for them. not to mention learning from them. we all need to do the best we can, but striving for perfection is not the answer. "A truly good person is not afraid to think from their heart."

I try to be a good role model but I often fall short.

If your child is a visual learner, there are many helpful tools you can use to help them learn. Incorporate flash cards, workbooks, charts and matching games into your teaching. This will help them to learn best and retain more information. Homeschooling allows you to use different tools to help your child learn the best.

When you are finished giving or getting a massage, try to give your body at least 10 minutes to recuperate. Since this is not something that you do everyday, you will not want to walk right out after you are done. It is important to maintain regular blood flow before you engage in normal activities again through a short rest period.
