Daily Affirmations: A Great Way to Build Character & Confidence in Your Kids

This how we have started our morning since my daughter, Journey, was 6 months old (my youngest daughter, Justice, is now 6 months and I am starting to do the same with her): Journey starts her morning by yelling the sweet words, "Daddy, come get me!!!" Then she uses the bathroom, brushes her teeth, washes her face and takes her vitamins. Then Journey and Daddy make eye contact in the mirror and we start our daily affirmations. Journey learned a prayer at school that she likes to say before we start our affirmations: 

"God our Father, God our Father. We bow our heads and thank you, amen, amen. Thank you, Jesus, for this day. We are going to use it in every way.

Journey is peace.
Journey is love.
Journey is joy.
Journey is patience.
Journey is goodness.
Journey is faithfulness.
Journey is kindness.
Journey is gentleness. 
Journey is compassionate. 
Journey is a child of God.
Journey is black. 
Journey is beautiful. 
Journey is strong. 
Journey is a girl .
Journey is a big sister. 
Journey can fall down and get back up again. 
Journey is love by her mommy and daddy just because she is their daughter."

Are we going to have a great day? Then let’s do it to it!!
