Catherine concludes this uplifting series on the power of our words by pulling the lens way back to show how our words water the seeds of legacy in our kids’ lives.

In this episode, Catherine travels to the future, to a place where all our hard parenting work is done. All the seeds are planted. All the water has poured out of us onto those little seeds, and these precious plants are strong and vibrant. The fruit growing out of their lives is bold and beautiful. And these plants are blessing others. They are blessing us.

That may seem like a long way off, but when you are in the thick of a long journey, you need to be reminded of the destination, because those sweet reminders keep us going.

“Teach us to realize the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom… Let us, your servants, see you work again; let our children see your glory.” (Psalm 91:12, 16)


Proverbs 18:21
Deuteronomy 11:18-21
Psalm 90:12, 16
