Proverbs 18:21 tells us “death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they have that love it shall eat the fruit thereof”. This verse is one that I try to keep in the forefront of my mind – especially when speaking to my husband and children. I always want to be their biggest encourager … their biggest cheerleader. Letting them know when they have done a good job or re-enforcing good behavior is so important.
It is no surprise that “Words of Affirmation” is my love language! The sweet thing is Colton has this gift as well (yes, I consider it a gift) … he is the sweetest little encourager ever. Sometimes even with silly stuff – “mommy you did a great job pulling those weeds!”.
I love the idea of Lunchbox Notes. Colton cannot read yet, so last year I would just draw a smiley face or something cute on his napkin. I made a few little blank notes to do just that this year and as I was working I thought about making a few notes for my readers to use! This is about a fourth of what I actually have created… I got carried away! Hopefully I will get them all up in the next few weeks.
So take the time – print them off… cut them and store them so each day you can put one in a lunchbox, snack bag, or even just drop it in a backpack. Some already have little notes and some are blank for you to leave your own words of encouragement! Enjoy!
