Words mean something.
Trace Embry shares that we need to define…or redefine words first.
Before we can effectively communicate with our kids, we must agree on the proper definition of terms.

There’s no time right now to go over all the terms that are being redefined, but I’m sure you’re already aware of many. Love, hate, racist, male, female, right, wrong, grace, and the term friend.
