Choosing Words that speak life and impact our families for good.
If you’ve had moments when your words have gotten the better of you (who hasn’t?) then this episode will encourage, challenge, and inspire you! Sarah Molitor — best known for her darling 6-boy + 1 girl family on her super popular @modernfarmhousefamily Instagram account – is with us to share her honest journey learning to use her words for good.
I loved getting to know Sarah, and I think you will, too. Sarah opens up about how her words have hurt others, especially her husband. But she also shares what it took for her to own up to the negative pattern, make changes, and learn to use her words for good. My favorite parts of this conversation were the role Sarah’s parents played in this process (#parentinggoals), and the specific steps Sarah took when she was ready to change. (Documenting these in show notes!)
Sarah’s new book, Well Said*: Choosing Words that Speak Life, Give Grace, and Strengthen You Faith and Family just released! Find out more below.
Steps to Take if you’re struggling with your words…
- Go to a trusted friend or mentor to confess and get counsel. (Make sure whoever you talk to has both your, and the other person’s best interest in mind.)
- Ask forgiveness (from the Lord first, then the other person.)
Verbalize the specific things you need forgiveness for.
- Move forward with new words and a sincere desire to use your words to bless and not hurt the people you love.
