Say 6 Encouraging Words Before Breakfast

My sister brought the kids a copy of Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland [4] back in May. They’ve probably watched it ten times in the last few months. It’s a favorite flick, indeed.

I must say, I was very pleasantly surprised. I didn’t expect it to be  good, but I really enjoyed it. Hubs did, too. It ranks as one of those Weird, but Good Movies for Families.

One of my favorite parts in the movie is when Alice quotes her father in saying that he thought up six impossible things before breakfast. This gives her courage to be bold and daring, to use her imagination and to dream a big dream.

As I contemplate ways I need to bust out of my same-old, same-old, I’m convicted to be more encouraging [5] to my children. Several of you had similar sentiments when I mentioned this a few weeks ago.

The thought came to me to say six encouraging words before breakfast. While the number or the time of day is irrelevant, I think the intention and goal is super important.

Say 6 Encouraging Words Before Breakfast

Consider these ways to encourage the people you love:

1. What did your kid do right this morning?

2. What do you enjoy about your child’s personality?

3. What’s a strength that your kid needs to be reminded that he has?

4. What Scripture helps you? Share that with your child.

5. If your child is struggling with something, share how you have overcome a similar struggle.

6. Remind them that you love them.

Are ya with me?

Have you shared any encouraging words yet today? How do you encourage your kids and spouse?
