According to research the number of words spoken by the average man daily is about 10,000. The average woman speaks about 25,000 words. They say that often we’ve used up our words by the time we’ve finished work each day. And that’s why men in particular like to grunt and nod in front of the TV when they get home. But we should make sure we don’t give our best during the day and then give the dregs to the family when we get home. We must learn to be effective communicators and have balance with out words. Have you ever stopped and wondered about how many words we waste each day and how many words we use for good. In Proverbs 10:19 it says “When words are many, sin is not absent. But he who guards his tong is wise.” Lets be careful with what words come out of our mouth today. Lets make sure we speak life.

Author Gary Chapman has helped many relationships with his books on Love Languages. He outlines five ways to express and experience love and what he calls Love Languages. They’re listed as Gifts, Quality Time, Words of Affirmation, Acts of Service and Physical Touch. Some have suggested that food should be the sixth love language. Chapman argues that emotionally people need to receive love. He also writes that we should discover what other people’s love languages are and speak that language to them. The Bible says to love our neighbour as we love ourselves. Maybe we should rethink the ways we show love. It could make a world of difference in any relationship.
Research shows that the health benefits of laughter are far ranging. Studies have shown that laughter can help relieve pain, bring greater happiness and even increase immunity. One study suggests that healthy children may laugh as much as 400 times a day, but adults tend to laugh only 15 times a day. I reckon all of us could use a little more laughter in our lives, considering how beneficial a good laugh can be for our stress levels and overall wellness. And the Bible says that a cheerful heart is good medicine. It also says we need to have faith like a child. Why don’t you go and have a good belly laugh today! Lighten up! It might be just what you need.

We all want the best for our kids. What if I told you there was a well researched program that could change your kids life. It can increase the average life-expectancy of your children by 8 years. Reduce the child’s use and risk of alcohol, drugs and tobacco. It can dramatically lower the risk of suicide and help rebound from depression 70% faster. It will reduce the risk for committing a crime. Provide them with a life-long moral compass and provide children with a caring extended family. Interested? Well, according to Barna Research Group the program is called “Active Church Participation”. Many people think church is irrelevant and boring, but many churches are thriving and many lives are being impacted. Maybe it’s time you got involved in a healthy Bible based church. And instead just being a spectator, maybe it’s time to be a participator.
Cambridge University research found that in neighbourhoods where children do well in school, 96% of the children were read to daily and 45% of these children were read to for half an hour or more a day. In contrast they found that in neighbourhoods where children didn’t do to well at school 61% of the children were not read to at all. Many kids these days are addicted to games on electronic devices and need to have boundaries from parents. Lets make the extra effort to read to our kids. It will help them in more ways than we can imagine.
Research has found that prayer is good for you even on a scientific level. A study was done by German psychologists at Saarland University on the effects of prayer and those who pray. The findings revealed that praying can help a person maintain self-control and resist temptation, as well as help alleviate depression and other benefits. The authors noted that even a short prayer time changes the self-control depletion effect. These results are consistent with a growing body of work, attesting to the beneficial effects of prayer on self-control. The students were tested to measure their level of self control when faced with temptation. The researchers found that those who prayed before the start of the test showed they maintained high levels of self-control till the end. Whatever you’re facing today; let prayer be your steering wheel, not your spare wheel.
