In a world of ever-changing media and often-divisive culture, it’s important to select words and images honoring children. This is especially true for the communities involved in adoption and foster care. We have an opportunity, whether we are aware of it or not, to inspire, educate and heal the wider population through the words and pictures we use to describe the children.
At Show Hope, we hold high a core value of “Words matter in all things.” We recognize with clear eyes that words have the power to build up and tear down, so in the words we use, the images we share, and in the stories we tell, we hold ourselves to the highest of standards, guided by our faith in God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Show Hope believes that God created the perfect world with words and used a book as a vehicle to tell us about his redemption. As found in his New Testament book, James reminds us, “So also the tongue is a small member, yet it boasts of great things” (3:5). We have the power to speak.Show Hope will take care.
