How to Speak Most of us have been on the receiving end of negative words that affected our life in some way. Some of us faced bullying as a child, harsh words of criticism from our parents, or verbal abuse at the hand of our significant other that left us feeling insecure and insignificant. But most of us have also used words to hurt someone we love out of anger and frustration. Although we hear or read a lot of negative words in our lives, words should be used to encourage and to show love to others. Join us this week as we learn how to speak positive, life-changing words to those around us.
