Our children are created in God's image. Sounds beautiful, doesn't it? But what does it mean?
In a world where we are all riddled with insecurities and in endless pursuit of finding ourselves, as Christians, we know this beautiful truth. We are made in the image of God. He created us for a purpose. He knew our days before they even came to be. He has a grand plan for us and each and every one of our children.
