I didn’t realize how powerful my words were until my child loudly exclaimed “What the heck!? Move it CAR!” Now I know this isn’t the WORST thing that could come out of her mouth, but it made me realize how much my kids listen to what I’m saying. They are always listening! And unfortunately sometimes repeating. As parents and caregivers we have the power to speak life over our kids.
After taking a step back and realizing just how many of MY phrases our kids were repeating I decided it was time to start speaking positive words into their lives. So I created a list of 14 Christian positive affirmations for kids (see below). Although we created pink hearts with the words, these affirmations are relevant the whole year, not just Valentine’s Day.
You may have seen this popular idea of posting hearts with compliments on your children’s door for Valentine’s day. I love this idea, but I wanted to take it a step further. Instead of compliments I wanted to share positive affirmations and God’s promises with our kids.
I want to change the narrative in our home. Instead of hearing things I later regret saying, I want my children to hear life coming out of my mouth! I want them to know who they are in God. I created these Christian positive affirmation hearts to celebrate this idea!
Fun Valentine’s Idea! Starting February 1st I will put up one heart each day on our daughter’s bedroom door. Then on February 14th she will have a collection of 14 hearts.
If you want to make your own you can follow my directions to make the watercolor hearts here. Then add the affirmations below on the hearts.
If you aren’t feeling crafty, I made hearts to download and print.
