Especially love the last line. The memories at the top are absolutely engaging and vivid, and the relationship between mom and daughter is absolutely precious.

Great title, and a heartfelt article contrasting the approval of "daddy" and the Father. Amazing how early disapproval can erode one's confidence. I could really feel your narrator's wounded spirit, and loved the hope at the end.

Beautiful story. I like the ending because it shows how God can take the hurts we experience as children, and with His love and grace, grow us into confident and loving adults.
How we long for approval, and what a wise mother to lavish it on her young daughter! You contrasted the two parenting styles without blaming, and yet vividly demonstrated the result of each. Nice job.

Touching story. Albeit a dropped mark and I forget what else, but this is a winner in my book; I enjoyed it.
This story has a great character study, interesting narrative, and wonderful implied message.

Loved this. The beginning was very touching and sad. A very good entry for the topic, without being too preachy or hokey. I really enjoyed it. Love, Teri
Great story. I love the title. She is breaking the cycle. Praise God!

Once again, I wonder - Were we separated at birth? You keep writing from MY heart! Awesome job letting us get to know your MC, and I love the way she turned it upside down with her own daughter. Gloppy IS ok! Love the last line. Congrats on your 17th & 7th placings! (ps I can't believe you didn't send me a link!)
Love, Cat
