I finished reading “Daring Greatly” by Brene Brown a while ago. The book yet remains on my desk. It is that good. I find myself flipping through the pages because I know that my eyes will land on words that will inspire me and challenge me. To grow. To stretch.
While it is not a book on parenting, she has a very powerful chapter on parenting. She shares this quote:
What we are teaches the child more than what we say, so we must be what we want our children to become. (Joseph Chilton Pearce)
Our. Lives. Teach.
“Write these commandments that I’ve given you today on your hearts. Get them inside of you and then get them inside of your children. Talk about them wherever you are, sitting at home or walking in the street; talk about them from the time you get up in the morning to when you fall into bed at night.” (Deuteronomy 6: 6-7, The Message)
