About This Episode
What is your favorite book or movie? The plot probably kept you engaged. And the story was memorable as it appealed to a value you hold dearly, a longing you have, or it resonated with an experience you or someone close to you has had. In the end, good stories teach us lessons that pierce the heart. Your life is a book of stories and these can capture the heart of your children in a powerful way. If you would like to share a belief with your children, share your stories. Just make sure that when you tell the story you take the time to describe the ups and downs. Don’t skip the hardship, describe the struggle. As you do so, your life will become authentic, you will create a deep connection with your children, and your beliefs and ideas will take shape and form in a very concrete and tangible way.
