    So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness" - Colossians 2: 6-7
    "Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others." - Phillipians 2:3-4
    "Treat people as if they were what they ought to be and you help them become what they are capable of being." - Dan Siegel
    "It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men." - Frederick Douglass
