SAY IT: Letting someone know you see how valuable they really are.


  • Think of people in your life who are valuable to you.  Some valuable people might be parents, teachers, coaches, preachers of friends.

  • What are some ways you can show these people that you see how valuable  they are?

  • Discuss people for whom you have great respect.  Think of examples of people from your childhood and now as an adult.  What qualities make these people valuable?

  • How have you shown these people that you see how valuable they are?

  • Has anyone ever let you know that you are valuable?  How did this make you feel?
