The Importance of a Positive Mindset in Starting Your Day

We would do a bit of singing a praying to start the day, most people refer to it as worship. My parents were very strict Christians but within all the crazy early morning chaos I learned about the clarity to be had in the wee hours in the morning. Now as a parent myself, I take a slightly different approach with my little ones. We do pray but nothing as intense, which includes both a bible verse and a positive verse or daily text while eating and getting ready for the day.
