Daily Whisper Inspirational Messages For Women {Review}

Some days I feel great about myself and some days, like many women, I have a lot of negative thoughts about myself run through my mind. I should have reached out to that friend earlier. I should exercise more so I can be skinnier. I should not work and give my kids more time. I should have done more from my to-do list today.

All of the things that go through my head bring me down and make me doubt the job I’m doing on a daily basis as a woman and as a mom. The truth is, yes there is always areas I can improve on but I’m really doing the best I can with the time and energy I have.

That’s why I like these Daily Whisper Inspirational Message cards. They are little business card sized messages with beautiful colors that keep me thinking positively and encourage me daily. They neutralize negative beliefs and unhealthy self talk.

One of my favorite cards talks specifically to women who work. As a mom who works from home this is constantly an area where I have a lot of negative self-talk and question myself a lot. Is this the best thing for my family? Am I giving my kids enough time? Most of the time these questions are insinuated by society and by others and not necessarily something brought on by me.

I have been a stay at home mom. I have been a working mom. Now I’m a work at home mom and I am so blessed to be able to do what I do on a daily basis and I think what I am doing is best for my family. This card reminds me that this is a journey that I am on and my family and I are on it together. It’s also a daily reminder to express to my family how much I love them and am thankful for them.

Daily Whisper Inspirational Cards are also now available for teens and children. Each set focuses on the unique challenges faced at these different life stages. The cards can be bought online here.

Encouragement {And A DaySpring Giveaway}

I believe that, other than prayer, words of encouragement are the best things you can give someone who is struggling. I know that encouraging words have not only brightened my day but have given me hope when I needed it most.
Products from DaySpring, like the frame above, can also give us reminders of God’s love and encourage us. I received the frame to review and think it’s perfect for my desk. Not only do I get to look at a picture of my family but it reminds me of God’s love for me.

DaySpring wants to bring encouraging words to your life and the lives of those around you by offering one lucky reader a gift card to their online store (please note: this does not cover shipping).
