Words of Encouragement: An Experiment

Words hold incredible power. They have the ability to build a person up or tear a person down. And, they can literally change the course of your life. Recently, I had the opportunity to share with someone how her words of encouragement 5 years ago had real and present affect in my life in a pretty powerful way. And, we chatted about how God uses the seeds others plant in our lives for years to come. The whole conversation left me ready to conquer the world via encouragement, and made me think back on something one of my favorite bloggers does. She sits down each month and writes others letters of encouragement. .

And, I would like to offer the same, not because I have it all figured out, but because sometimes it is just as fun to encourage others as it is to receive encouragement. So, I am introducing the monthly letter of encouragement club (the name still needs some work). Participants will receive from me one hand-written words of encouragement via snail mail each month (everyone loves fun mail, right?!) for 6 months.

If you would like to like to be a part of my first-ever monthly letter of encouragement, please send your name and address to honeycombandpearls@gmail.com! And, I thank you in advance for grace as I figure the details out as I go.

Have a wonderful weekend, friends!

    • Oh, you totally should! I promise you that I will not fill the envelope with glitter. Just the occasional poor penmanship!

  1. Its true that words hold much power over us. I let opportunities pass ne by because i didnt feel i was good enough, or I didn’t have enough talent. Sometimes, the smallest encpuragement can make a world of difference. Thank you so much for sharing.

  2. What a positive and powerful ppost. I am going through a very difficult week as my son lost his best friend – he was hit by a truck while checking on his car after a fender bender! It is heartwarming to know there are genuine people who like to bring encouragement to others

    • I am so sorry to hear about your son’s friend. What an incredibly devastating thing to happen!! You and your son will be in my thoughts and prayers as you help him navigate the emotional roller coaster that is losing someone close! And, I am sure you are squeezing him a little bit tighter!

  3. This is SUCH a great idea! I’m always trying to practice positive thinking, so not only have I had my vision board hanging in my bedroom, I wrote down positive affirmations on index cards and I keep them in my purse! I believe what you put out into the universe comes back to you, so keep doing what you’re doing! You have the power to actually change someone’s day for the better!

      • You know what else you can do? When you go to bed at night, as you’re falling asleep think of 3 good things that happened that day. You’ll see how easy it actually is. Your whole way of thinking changes!
