Encouraging Words

I picked up the book Power of a Positive Mom to read along with a group at the Homeschool Village. Yesterday {after a rather intense morning with the kids}, this passage jumped out at me:

There is no greater investment we can make in the lives of our children than giving them generous doses of encouraging words. It costs us so little in time and effort, but the rewards are priceless. When our young people are reminded of their God-given value, they receive deposits of confidence, security, and well-being in their emotional bank accounts. They begin building on their strengths, knowing they have something to contribute to the world.

~ Karol Ladd, Power of a Positive Mom, p. 38

Jenn had a great post on this topic yesterday at the Homeschool Village and you can also join in a discussion on the book in their Blog Frog community.
