Welcome back, This week, I am dreaming of a white Christmas! However, as you go through Chapter 14 we will be pondering dreams and the roles they play in the development of character in our daughters. But I have to ask you, do you remember the dreams you had when you were your daughter’s age? I do and they reveal so much …
