Sweet Words Increase Learning

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA There are different styles of learning but life’s lessons are most often taught through the inclusion of words. “A picture is worth a 1,000 words,” is a statement many of us have heard over the years. And it’s true. Whether we learn by hearing, reading, or seeing, it is easier to learn when the words are sweet and not bitter. What enters the ears touches minds and hearts, too. Those who are taught with words of encouragement learn faster. They develop the idea that they can do new things. And, sadly, those who hear harsh criticism learn to doubt they will ever do anything right. Discouragement sets in. Will you challenge yourself to speak “sweet” words to your family? Please remember tender hearts bruise easily when words deliver wounds.

Proverbs 16:1 NKJV The wise in heart will be called prudent. And sweetness of the lips increases learning.

Advocate for the Children

I am a huge advocate for every child. Are you? Children are young and innocent and remain our greatest hope for tomorrow’s world. That leaves parents with the awesome responsibility of nurturing little ones into confident adults. Most of you are doing a good job. But, sometimes that doesn’t happen and unfortunate children don’t get the proper love and nurturing needed to equip them well. Mommy or Daddy are angry people. These youngsters learn to feel fearful rather than safe in their own homes. If you would like to play a part in stopping generational child abuse, now is the time to get a copy of my newest book, Mother’s Fury. Now is the right time to help yourself, or someone you know, put an end to this terrible wrong. For the sake of the children.

Hebrews 10:24 NLT Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works.
