Say 6 Encouraging Words Before Breakfast

Posted By Jessica Fisher On July 24, 2012 @ 1:44 am In Joyful Womanhood | 10 Comments

My sister brought the kids a copy of Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland 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.

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 [3] 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.

Are ya with me?

Have you shared any encouraging words yet today?
