God gave us as women an incredible verbal ability and gift.  I believe He did this so that we might greatly bless others with words of life, inspiration, nurturing, edification, godly truth and encouragement!

Some life-giving words our men/families/friends/siblings need to hear from us –  (they MUST be genuine and sincere from our hearts – do not say these things if you don’t mean them! Not all of these will apply to all relationships):

  • I’m SO proud of you for _________!
  • I LOVE YOU just the way you are!
  • I love you because you are you.
  • I am the luckiest/most blessed girl in the world to get to be here with you!
