To get started we are going to talk about the importance of words. Do they really affect us? Examples where words have either teared us down...or lifted us up. Then we are going to discuss how we can implement more kind words in our homes.
After we are done with the hearts I want to talk about how important it is to use kind words with our friends. As with all girls, our group could use a little reminder about how important it is to be kind to one another. I want them to realize that EVERYONE has talents and gifts, and when we acknowledge them we can really uplift and bless the lives of others. I have a piece of paper for each girl with her name on the top and we are going to take 15 minutes passing each piece of paper around to every girl and having her right something nice about that person.
Finally I made these little handouts for the girls. They are just mini boxes of Conversation Hearts with a scripture attached. I hope when they see this Conversation Hearts they will remember how important their "conversations" are, and that there IS power in the words that we use
These handouts would be great for any primary class, Young Women's, or family home evening...so please feel free to use them if you like! :)
Hope you are having a wonderful week everyone!!
