It’s been awhile, about a year and a half, but today I’m encouraging 2nd graders to
Choose Kindness over Bullying.
Let me back up. Before I planted Thrive Church, I started a non profit called Live Now Leadership and I spoke in schools to encourage students to Choose Kindness over Bullying. But, with the rapid growth of the church, I just haven’t been able to head out and speak in schools. I’ve missed it.
So, we were at Madie’s parent teacher conference and as we were taking with her teacher it came up that I use to speak to students. She jumped on it quickly and asked if I would speak to all the 2nd graders at Madie’s school.
Helping kids, students and adults treat each other with kindness and respect is actually a HUGE passion of area of mine! My heart breaks when people mis-treat each other.
Just imagine if Parents would be passionate about teaching their kids to treat each other with unprecendeted amounts of kindness and respect. Imagine if parents treated their families and their peers with that kind of kindness. Imagine if 2nd graders understood the importance and began to treat others with kindness…the world would change!
This wasn’t a tough decision at all.
So, this morning I’m headed into Madie’s school and I get to help out. I can’t wait!
And bonus, my kids have heard me speak on this so many times that they’ve been helping get my talk together this morning! I love that!
Thanks for praying for me around 8ish this morning!
