Children Learn What They Live ~ Prayer by Dorothy Law Nolte

If children live with criticism,

Growing wholesome children
Growing wholesome children

they learn to condemn.


If children live with hostility,

they learn to fight.


If children live with ridicule,

they learn to be shy.


If children live with shame,

they learn to feel guilty.


If children live with encouragement,

they learn confidence.


If children live with tolerance,

they learn to be patient.


If children live with praise,

they learn to appreciate.


If children live with acceptance,

they learn love.


If children live with approval,

they learn to like themselves.


If children live with honesty,

they learn truthfulness.


If children live with security,

they learn to have faith in themselves and others.


If children live with friendliness,

they learn the world is a nice place in which to live.

My profile picture is a rose, symbolizing that we should all bloom where we are planted. I am planted in the garden of words of knowledge and inspiration, history and truth, quest and discovery. My latest book, MYSTERY OF THE STURBRIDGE KEYS - CHRISTMAS UNLOCKED, has uncovered the deepest mysteries of modern time, mysteries that were planted at the start of time. The theme in this book is: There is one race, the human race. It unveils the secrets of Christmas, Santa Claus, the Magi, Jesus and how Noah's sons repopulate the world through the empires. In the process you meet Abraham Lincoln, Charles Darwin, Charles Dickens, Harriet Tubman, and learn that former Presidents Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama are eighth cousins, both with traces of English royalty through William the Conqueror and Charlemagne in their bloodlines. This book uses real history, ancient and pre-history in this dramatic, plausible fiction/fantasy novel. It took me over a year to research and a lifetime to experience.
