Before I launch into my update, let me just remind you of what we are doing. Connie over at Smockity Frocks challenged her readers to a 30 Day Wholesome Talk Challenge. I decided that it would be a good thing for the kids and I to take part in.
The first week and a half we were really good at keeping each other accountable. The kiddos even took to wearing rubber bands so when they slipped up, they could “remind” themselves not to speak unhelpful, needless, or unbeneficial words.
We’ve all been working on memorizing Ephesians 4:29
It has been really surprising to me how many times needless words come out of my mouth. Things that just don’t need to be said. Many of these things begin with the word “why.” And not just “why….” more like “WHYYYY….”
Quite honestly, this week has been….yeah. I haven’t even thought about the challenge. I am so glad Connie asked how things were going, because I needed the reminder :)
