Based off of our book the 2 Degree Difference, A 2 Degree Tip is ONE tiny thing that you can do everyday that adds up to make a BIG difference.

And that is really a core principle here at StrongFamilies. It’s not about 180 Degree change, it’s about small, slow, sustainable change.

It’s not about 180 Degree change, it’s about small, slow, sustainable change.

And we are here to help you do that. Which is why we are working to provide at least one tip on our Social Media (Facebook, Instagram) pages each day. But we wanted to give you a preview here as well!

Okay! Are you ready for a SMALL THING you could do that can make a BIG difference in your home this New Year?

First, read this amazing verse. Proverbs 15:30, “Bright eyes make the heart glad.”

My stressed, hard working, single-parent mom nailed this when we were growing up. When she climbed out of her broken down Ford Falcon after working all day – guess what we three boys (three under two years old when my dad left) ALWAYS saw when we ran out to meet her at the car? BRIGHT EYES.

Just look in the mirror for a minute. (I try to do that once a week, even if I don’t need it.). Now “Brighten” your eyes. Yes, it looks weird to a degree. But your kids, and your spouse won’t see it that way. God’s word is right. ALWAYS. Think about it. When you walk into a room, and someone “eyes brighten” when they see you – it lifts your heart!

It’s like they’re saying, non-verbally, “Wow! Look who just came into the room! They SEE me! They LIKE me!” And that’s exactly what it does!

Sounds incredibly small… and it won’t cost you a cent. But in the book, The Blessing, this is just one of the ways we share you can “attach high value” to someone when you Bless them.

So that’s a SMALL thing you can do to make a big difference in your home. CHOOSE to have “bright eyes” when you first see someone after you’ve been gone all day – Yes, even if it’s been a tough day!

Try it, and let us know what you think!
