About Me

My photo
I have discovered it is really hard to be Queen in a household with 3 princesses! Somebody is always borrowing my tiara! Well in between hunting my stuff down I am the proclaimed Queen in the Land of fluff (where my husband swears one day that he will die from glitter lung (you get the picture!) Besides that I am a dieting, exercising, crafting, biblestudying kind of girl.

Words are such powerful things! Words can incite passion. Fan the flames of war, encourage us or tear us down.

If words can hold so much impact shouldn't words be careful selected to pour into our kids and spouse. I have 3 daughters and the media is constantly bombarding them telling them they are not enough. Pretty enough, classy enough, etc..

With that in mind I choose to call the girls "beautiful". It has become such a habit that I really don't think about it much. (for example: bye beautiful girls have a nice day, hi beautiful girls did you have a good day?). The other day one of my daughters had a friend over and as the girls were leaving I said my traditional bye. That's when I heard the friend say "your mom called us beautiful. Nobody has ever called me beautiful before.".

Every girl should be told that they are beautiful and smart. What words are you selecting to use with your children. Are you filling up their love tanks, or are you tearing them down?

The bible says in Proverbs 25:11 "The right word spoken at the right time is as beautiful as gold apples in a silver bowl.".

So choose your words carefully your children, your spouse, and everyone else in your life is listening.



  1. That breaks my heart that there are young girls who have never been called beautiful. I can watch the beautiful people on TV and the beautiful people that I catch walking around town. But that kind of beauty wears off. True beauty grows over time.

  2. Well said. And you do have beautiful girls. Just as I have 3 beautiful grown girls. Now it's the boy grands that are handsome.

  3. Profoundly written! From another mother of three girls, and three granddaughters, I wholeheartedly agree with all that you shared on this post. I love that you call them "beautiful". Good reminder to me.
