Thought to share: Choose your words carefully. Speak life. Choose to call out the gold in others. Draw attention to their strengths. Put a spotlight on what they do well. Choose to look at their good qualities. Words that encourage and support bring refreshing and healing. And when you speak life, you look most like ME.
