is a hidden treasure. Inner beauty is often not discovered until it has been allowed to grow and refine itself. It is the combination of moral strength, optimism, gentleness, and characteristics that inspire love and friendship. While inner beauty may not be the most desired, it is truely the most beneficial to the holder.
I spend a lot of time teaching my children to paint there spirits with colors of good report or characteristics that seem important to them. For example I am going to give my children an out line of a child and a chart of different colors that express specific characteristics. Green - generosity, Yellow - peacemaker, Blue - honesty, and so on. This gives each child the opportunity to choose what his/her inner beauty will look like. It gives them a chance to think about what characterists they find more important and to work on those. I also instruct them to watch there teachers and other adults and find out what they like about them. This helps them to discover atributes that they may like to have as an adult.
I know my views are simple but thanks for reading anyway.
