More Momma, Less Drama – Encourage!


So I had the most AMAZING time this month with a few thousand of the world’s most awesome moms ever at #MomCon2013. If you weren’t able to make it please know that we missed you! I had lots of moms ask if I would post a few more connections between our 5 words and the desire of ALL our hearts to minimize the drama in our lives. 😮  I’d love to!

Here we go:

Encourage

Think of the last time someone said a kind word of encouragement to you. One that was unsolicited and perhaps from a complete stranger.

It might be hard to recall one that meets those criteria because let’s face it – we’re a busy society with our eyes focused on a device more than they are focused on each other.

It’s easy to notice the bad. We’re programmed to fix things that aren’t correct.

But what if we turned our radars to the setting “Catch them doing it right” instead of “Catch them doing it wrong”.

Wrong will still happen but when our children know we genuinely believe in them and have seen their successes they are more likely to tone down the dramatic displays.

Children who are encouraged don’t have to be dramatic about not wanting to try new things or bring a dramatic response to any situations where they might fail.

We talked at MOPS about how the prefix “-en” means “to cause to be” – WOW! Through our words of genuine encouragement we can cause our kids to be COURAGEOUS…that’s amazing to me.

Be encouraged that you are amazing.

You are just the right mom your kids need for this season.

Do NOT allow Satan the chance to discourage you – it’s a dark place where the light of truth is extinguished.

Joshua 1:9…

“Be strong and courageous.

Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged,

for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
