Speak Life

Colossians 3:21 Fathers, do not aggravate your children, or they will become discouraged.

If you’ve been harsh with words spoken to your children prayerfully acknowledge your sin and seek forgiveness. Look for opportunities to affirm your children. Catch them doing something right and praise them for it.
