The Power of Words: Great Video

Kara Powell | Apr 26, 2011

I love words. I use them a lot! Our kids are always described by their teachers as “so verbal”.

And yet this less-than-two-minute video reminds me that I could be using my words more powerfully - as a leader, mom, friend, and wife.

As you’re around teenagers, what words can you share that will especially encourage them? Give them a vision for all God has for them?

Later this week I’ll be sharing at a general session at the Orange Conference about a mentor who made a real difference in my life, largely because of his words.

How can you use your words more powerfully?
