To nurture is to promote the growth and development of all one s positive traits, qualities, and characteristics. To nurture is to respect and care for yourself, for others, and for your environment. To nurture is to view the world and all the people, animals, and things in it as having value and worth. To nurture is to believe with all of one s heart in the inherent goodness of life. Dear Colleague, The word, nurturance comes from the Latin word, nutrier, meaning, to nurse and nourish. Nurturing is the quintessential act of parenting. Without nurturing, hatred, prejudice, war and abuse will flourish. The Family Nurturing Centers (FNC) are dedicated to the goal of making the world a better place through nurturing. While the goal is simple enough, the process of teaching nurturing in a world that at times seems bent on destruction is not easy. A strong conviction and a close adherence to the philosophy of nourishing individual and collective growth has to be unwavering. My goal is to establish Family Nurturing Centers worldwide. I am pleased you have interest in applying for membership. Read the enclosed documents thoroughly, weigh the issues, and then carefully make your decision.
