The New Year is an important opportunity for each of us to learn from the past and resolve to do better in the future. According to Girls and Boys Town Executive Director Val J. Peter, each New Year presents us with "a new leaf in the Book of Life, a new chance for hope." In this book, Girls and Boys Town youth consider the lessons of the past year, ponder why New Year's resolutions are important, and share with you their goals for the coming year. In addition, Peter describes how your family can profit from reviewing together the past year and explains why January is the month of hope. As you and your family prepare for the New Year, this book can be the inspiration you need to honestly assess the past and decide what changes you need to make for your family.
