High-Need and Spirited Children

Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary.
~ Galatians 6:9

And He has said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness." Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.
~ II Corinthians 12:9
