Good Saturday Morning, Friends! My Soul Intention: Love is a verb; show your children love beginning with your spouse. Listening to how people talk to their partner can tell you a lot, but living with someone is a better description. It’s easier to control your words in public, and what children hear you say isn’t always what they’re exposed to at home. Respect, affection and forgiveness begin with what kids see between their parents. They’ll forget the words, but not the actions.
