Happy 2018! I pray you and your family had a fun and relaxing Christmas break.
Our kids go back to school next week so I wanted to share a short blog post with two ways we speak life over them.
Speak Life with YOUR Words
Every year for Christmas my mom used to make us a handmade item. Coming down the stairs on Christmas morning to see what she made was always the highlight of my day. I have tried to carry on that tradition with my kids. The only problem is that I am not quite as crafty as my mom. Last year, a dear friend of mine helped me sew aprons for my kids. I felt stumped this year until God gave me the idea to give them words of life.
My husband and I both wrote down words that we see in our children. Then I put them into a word cloud (I used Word Salad but there a ton of apps that do this). I got frames at Hobby Lobby (which happened to be 50% off) and for less then $10 I had a unique, handmade gift for each child!
There’s no need to wait until next Christmas to do this for your kids. It would make a great gift any time of the year! Also, this can be given to anyone in your life. We did this for our employees and they loved them!
Speak Life with GOD’S Word
I was recently sent “100 Favorite Bible Verses for Children” from Tommy Nelson. As you can imagine from the title, I am in love with this book. When we partner our words with God’s in our children’s lives the results are abounding fruit. God’s word cannot return null or void.
I immediately began to read this book to my son and he loved it too. Each verse has a short devotional on one side of the page explaining the verse in terminology that kids can understand. The verse is on the other side of the page with a cute illustration. This is a book that feeds my spirit too!
How do you speak life over your kids?

Praying scriptures over our adult children.
Love this idea to put it on paper and make it last! We make the effort to get our kids eyes and focus as we tell them how, in that moment, they looked like jesus, acted like jesus, showed love like jesus.
Thanks for the giveaway!!
