“I had an obsession with the Amish. Plain and Simple. Objectively it made no sense. I, who worked hard at being special, fell in love with a people who valued being ordinary.”
[Sue Bender, Plain and Simple]

Identity is a major factor in our lives, both forming our personality and values.
“Learning self-acceptance” the editors of Every Day a New Beginning tell us, “and then loving the selves we are, present perhaps our two biggest hurdles to the attainment of emotional and spiritual health.”

Please bless us Dear Lord, with love and acceptance for who we are, created in the image of you.
