A friend of mine gave me a great acronym yesterday.  It’s a tool for considering what to say before just blurting something out.

T – Is it thoughtful?

H – Is it honest?

I – Is it inspiring (or encouraging)?

N – Is it necessary?

K – Is it kind?

I made it into a poster for the fridge.  Because I have this dreadful tendency to say precisely what I’m thinking, and it’s not always pretty.

Here it is, if you’d like your own copy:




About dep31

I am a farm-raised homeschooling mom. I take great joy in making nutritious food that inspires people to take seconds. Thirds, anyone? We are a God-fearing, Christ worshiping family that enjoys good friends and good eats. If the kitchen is clean and the living room carpet is visible, then that's a nice bonus.
