Words to Live By...

Do you ever think of the messages that bombard your family on a daily basis?  Advertisers have figured out how to inundate us with their messages...billboards, magazine ads, television commercials, radio commercials, brand-name clothing...everything is screaming messages at us.  But how often do we deliberately set out to send messages to ourselves, to our children...messages that are reinforcing our ideals, not Madison Avenues goals.

One of the things I try to do in our home is to surround us with positive messages.  I've had fun coming up with the words we live by.



Whether they're a little bit of humor as we tackle the mundane...


or reminders that we are who we are and no one else...


 or even the reminder that we already know what we need to do, we just need to do it.


Oh, and we even use words as friendly reminders to our young male guests...

What words do you live by?

We have a few of those to put on our walls, but we have not yet. I love them! Thanks for sharing.

One we have is, "As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord."
