A Challenge of Change

Communication is the Magic Wand

So tell me, what would happen if we all took it upon ourselves to replace:

HATE-PAIN-ANGER-STRUGGLE-VIOLENCE

with

LOVE, HONOR, COURAGE, GRACE AND GRATITUDE?

Each day it is your challenge to make a choice and make this change. Then watch your world around you. You will be astounded.

One of the simplest ways to do this is to turn off the TV, computer, phones and video games. Talk with your kids about their day. Ask them these two simple questions at dinner time: Yes, dinnertime. If you don’t currently have one, create it.

1. What was the best part of your day?

2. What was the worst part of your day?

At bedtime, ask each one of your kids what they are most grateful for in their world. Then simply listen. It may be deafening.

You will learn a great deal about them and they will learn a lot about you as well. It is your job to participate and facilitate. It might be difficult at first…but stick with it. It just may be the one thing they remember most!
