Mother Power

Would you like to be more influential in your children’s lives?

I recently heard an older gentleman praising his wife of many years.

{I even jotted down his last sentence because it was so profound I couldn’t stand it!}

Speaking of their family, he said, “She takes care of us, and we follow her lead.”

Yes, caring for someone gives you the power of influencing, and when they know you love them, they’re far more likely to follow your lead.

So, what can you do today that will give them more evidence of your love? {Think small and simple!}

Smile sincerely at them? Help clean a room? Give a word of encouragement? Listen with your full attention? Ask a validating question? Give a hug instead of a frown? Make something they love for dinner? Yes!

To be a long-term, even-into-teenagehood-influencer, show your love every day!

{Hey that sounds like a great declaration in the making: “I show love to my family in small, simple and meaningful ways every day.”}

God bless you for the life-changing work you are doing!


P.S. Remember, true, real love is irresistible, and it begins with our own self-loving thoughts. Let’s not make this complicated. It’s all possible and we can do it!

The mission of Lioness at the door is to uplift, strengthen and encourage women of all ages to magnify health, hope and happiness at home. We do so boldly, with humility and gratitude for the opportunity.
