Word's Do Matter

Word's do matter...           This picture caught my attention quickly but beyond the concern for people who are the victim of verbal abuse.  (Don't get me wrong this is a serious issue and I am saddened by their pain) I was reminded of the power we have in our tongue.  It made me think of times where I was diligent to change my negative thinking and claim healing and life but there are many times where I fall victim to the enemy in my thinking and speak death rather then life.  

The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.  Proverbs 18:21

Are you using your words to encourage and bring life or are you bringing death and discouragement?  I mean really think about the things you are saying.  Such as speaking illness into our bodies rather then speaking health and healing, or speaking bad about our husband instead of lifting him up.  Talking bad or gossip about a friend or family rather then speaking life into them.  It is so common for us to allow the enemy to win this battle and make us think we are defeated or not worthy but we need to stop that thinking and remember who we are in CHRIST!  "I AM MORE THEN A CONQUEROR!  So no more saying, "I'm sick" "Your killing me" "I am hormonal" (yep that has been my words lately...preaching to myself here)  "I'm depressed" "your dumb" or how about "my kids are naughty" my kids are rude" "my kids don't listen" or how about "my husband is ______"  

If someone says, "I love God," but hates a Christian brother or sister, that person is a liar; for if we don't love people we can see, how can we love God, whom we cannot see?  1John 4:20
Lets try to remember to LOVE more like CHRIST! 

A wholesome tongue is a tree of life. Prov. 15:4

Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing. Pro 12:18

Have you ever wondered who started the saying "Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never harm me."  This is just not true and very un-biblical.                   So how do we start speaking life rather then death?  First, get in the WORD and second think before you speak!  :)  Would love to hear your thoughts on this topic!  :)

So, so true! I've often thought that bones can heal, but words go far deeper and leave scars that at times no one can see.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
