Blah, blah, blah, talk, talk, talk…we all speak many words, don’t we, moms? Being reliable and staying true to our words and promises are key. What are you teaching your children about keeping his/her word? Following through and doing what we say we are going to do in all our relationships¬† builds confidence, security, trust, character and dependability in both you and your child. Just as God has kept His promises (“God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man that he should change his mind,” Numbers 23:19), let us keep ours and be women of integrity–we have a great model to follow! “And now, LORD God, keep forever the promise you have made concerning your servant and his house.” 2Sam 7:25¬†God always keeps His promises. How are your words and intentions shaping your relationships?


  1. This is so wise, and so very convicting to read. I need to evaluate my actions and my relationships and how I behave according to this truth. It is so critical to model this to our children! Thank you for reminding me of it! Our kids watch every move we make, and take it in…

    • They do watch–and hear every move we make and say, Chris, so true. Thank you for sharing the importance of applying this truth to your life…I know I need to!

  2. Very convicting! I am so guilty of saying one thing and then doing another because I get tired, or busy, or something comes up… Thanks for the nudge!
