What Words Will They Remember? What do we say to our children in the midst of a storm or new things?

Encouraging Words for Kids - You never know the words that your kids will carry with them the rest of their lives, so I challenge you to add more positivity and encouragement with this list- MyiShanka (Mya) McMillian

It's been 10 years since my grandmother passed away and I still reflect on the words she sowed into my heart. To this day I can hear my grandmother encouraging me when I tried new things or when I was faced with battles. Her voice of confidence helps me pull through moments of self-doubt, inadequacies, and embarrassment. - I love you Earon Mae McMillan
