Inspirational Quotes

There were a few quotes in the June edition of Guideposts that stood out to me more than usual:

"If you want your kids to listen to you, don't yell at them.  Whisper.  Make them lean in.  My kids taught me that.  And I do it with adults now."  ~chef Mario Batali

Reminded me of the story in the Bible when God spoke in a still small voice:

"And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the LORD. And, behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the LORD; but the LORD was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the LORD was not in the earthquake: And after the earthquake a fire; but the LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice." ~KJV I Kings 19:11, 12

"Behold the turtle.  He makes progress only when he sticks his neck out."  ~Shirley Thiessen


"Only God can turn a mess into a message, a test into a testimony."  ~Joyce Meyer

Ain't that the truth!
