Quote Love: "Have Courage and Be Kind" Printables and Craft

My daughter and I went to go see the new Cinderella movie twice at theaters. It was that stunning! Being someone who loves a good fairy tale, I was swept away in the beauty of this version of the timeless story.

I know it faced its fair share of controversy. Shew! What hasn't these days? Some didn't think Ella was a good role model and mistook her kindness for passivity and weakness.  I didn't see it that way though. It took a great more strength to carry on as she did than to retaliate. Retaliation is often the easy, wide road to take. She chose to "turn the other cheek." It was a lesson her mother taught her--to "have courage and be kind." 

What a lovely quote! It's a quote just as lovely as the movie itself! Yes, I too wish for my daughter to show kindness to others and to have courage throughout life's journeys.

If you love the quote too, please enjoy these free printables! They are perfect for displaying in a child's room or somewhere else in your home. Just right click, save, open, and print!

You can frame them...


Or you can make this with them...
