I asked my 11-year-old daughter what her soul’s purpose was? She felt the question was deep, and thought about her answer quite a bit before she spoke. Phoebe told me her soul’s purpose was, "to have fun." I actually thought it was a young, fresh, honest answer. It was so simple yet so perfect. She didn't over think it like an adult might do.
I had a thought today about my own soul. I have a vivid memory of being a little girl in my childhood home. My mom told me that my grandma thought I was an "old soul". I am not sure why my grandma thought this but I intend to ask my mom. At the time it felt like a compliment. I didn’t think to ask her why she said this. It just felt good to hear.
