The Purpose Show

Mom life: we’re surrounded with the message that it’s the tired life, the no-time-for-myself life, the HARD life. And while it is hard and full of lots of servitude, the idea that motherhood means a joy-less life is something I’m passionate about putting a stop to. I’m on a mission to help you stop counting down the minutes till bedtime (at least most days). I want you to stop cleaning up after your kids’ childhood, and start being present for it - start enjoying it. I believe in John 10:10, that we are called to abundant life, and I know mothers are NOT excluded from that promise. Join me in conversations about simplicity, minimalism, and lots of other good stuff that leads to a life of less for the sake of enjoying more in motherhood. I’m Allie Casazza, and this is The Purpose Show.

Words can be an incredible way of bringing positivity into your life and the life of your children.

I’ve always been drawn to words. I can remember as a child and now as an adult looking back and realizing how special this was. I literally had a relationship with words. I’d make up stories. I’d take classic fairy tales and rewrite them into my own versions, I just loved being surrounded by words.

Words have always just been a really powerful passion in my life.

The other side of words are that they can slice deep, especially in marriage. Any flaw you have, is magnified 1000% in marriage. So, while words have been a crazy positive gift for me, they’ve also been a weakness.

However, it is most important to me to use words in a positive way. Words have shaped some circumstances of my life, and in today’s episode I want to share a how effective words have been in changing the behavior of my children.

Purposeful Info from the Show:

  • The effect words have on you in both a positive and negative way.
  • How easy it is to complain and use negative words to describe things, and why it’s important to switch your words to the positive.
  • Why it is important to speak positive words over your children.
  • In the beginning it may be uncomfortable to speak positive words or scriptures over your children, but find a place or a way that works for you. Allie shares how she does it.
  • Changing the words that you speak to and over your children has the power to completely change their behavior.
  • Tips and suggestions on where to find positive affirmations and scriptures, and how you can store them on your phone.
