What are some things you remember your mom say when you were growing up? Did she say things like "I love you" or "You can do it!" that made you feel loved? Or did she often say things that discouraged you or made you feel guilty?

We need to be mindful of the words we use when we are speaking to our children AND when we are around them...because words can either hurt or lift them up. I hope and pray that my words would encourage my children.. that they would feel loved whether I am discipling, teaching, or cheering.. Lord, help me to select my words wisely and carefully.
