God Created Me (Everything about Me Is Good!)

This song was written about two summers ago during one of our morning family walks.  I do my best to protect my babies from so many negative media images of people who look like them but sometimes it seems like a losing battle.  On this particular morning walk, as I watched my babies riding their bikes on the path ahead of me while their father jogged along with them, the words to this little tune came to my mind.

God created me and everything about me is good! (x3)
God said everything He created is very good!

God created my hair and everything about it is good! (x3)
God said everything He created is very good!

God created my skin and everything about it is good! (x3)
God said everything He created is very good!

God created my nose and everything about it is good! (x3)
God said everything He created is very good!

God created my lips and everything about them is good! (x3)
God said everything He created is very good!

A Good Book for Teen Girls and Their Mothers



The purpose of this story is to encourage mothers to have the types of conversations mentioned in this book with their daughters, nieces, cousins, and even their sons and nephews.  I think it will make a world of difference in shaping the self-image of a lot of young ladies if the person who gives them the facts about the most important topics in life (sex, the opposite sex, relationships, etc.) was also the person who loves them most, no matter how uncomfortable the conversation might be in the beginning.

My prayer and hope is that this little book will encourage mothers to initiate these conversations with their young daughters and that it will encourage daughters to feel comfortable asking their mothers “hard questions.”
