Monday Manifesto ~ Strong Words

This is the fifth installment in this series. A couple years ago I ran across a list called "a parenting manifesto of joy" on Ann Voskamp's site. It's a beautiful list of essentials when it comes to parenting, and as a homeschooling mom, I desperately need to inhale and exhale and absorb this list. Each Monday, I'll be sharing each idea individually in an attempt to get myself to focus more intently on that idea during the week.

Today, I will pray to speak words that are only STRONG words, words that make those children feel strong. Grace words. Grace is the only non-toxic air. All other words I breathe are death words.

Still working on prayerbeautyno emergencies and gratitude...


  1. Beautiful dahlia! Your prayer is the same one I often pray, it's terrible to let toxic words out of my mouth, especially to my kids.
