God, Help My Kids be Kind

If you’re like most moms, not a single day goes by that we don't question our ability as a mother. We have doubts and wonder if we're doing anything right. Well, most kids feel very differently about our abilities as a mom. You might be really surprised at their opinions about you! Check out this video:

Each day we show loyal love and kindness to our kids and they notice. We are teaching kindness. The verse we learned about today isn't simply a command for our kids to obey. We can take it to heart as well. Proverbs 3:3 says, "Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart."

Be encouraged today. Take a deep breath and concentrate on showing your children kindness today.
