Raising Children

Words kill, words give life Proverbs 18:21

choose life

by speaking life to your babies

even to those who are still in the womb

speak success  pleasant-words-like-honey


tell them they are the best

that they will make it in life

they are beautiful

for faith comes through hearing

when they continually hear good words, they mold them for good

and if they continually  hear that they are ugly





you’re too fat

you eat too much

good for nothing

or this one: you’re  nothing

will amount to nothing

it will eventually register in them

and ultimately believe it



Then what

they will act stupid


good for nothing


and unsure of themselves

people with no sense of purpose

full of condemnation

unsure of themselves

at times rude


If you’re raising kids, remember you’re raising ‘an adult’

a mother



nurse etc

thereby plant good seeds

plant good memories

try to lead by example

say,‘sorry’ when you need to

children are not a burden, but a blessing

you are raising somebody with a destiny given by God

therefore nature the destiny

and nature the gift

as you nature the child

knowing parenting and raising children is  a privilege

and children are a gift from God/parenting-children-heritage-lord/
