Motivation and Encouragement
Julia Bettencourt

Women need motivation and encouragement from their sisters in the Lord. Nothing is more special than just a little touch that came unexpected. We never know what people are going through and how just a tiny bit of encouragement can be like a shower of blessing falling right on top of them.

"...a word spoken in due season, how good is it!" Proverbs 15:23

    Here are some things you might want to try.

  • Tell someone they are a blessing to you. Be specific.
  • Tell someone you are praying for them (and make sure to do so).
  • Send flowers to perk up someones day.
  • Write out a card to say hello. (be sure to mail it or hand deliver it)
  • Give a compliment to a different person every day for a week.
  • Share a special verse either by word of mouth or write it in a card or note.
  • Send someone a candy note. (See the Candy Notes Ideas)
  • Praise someone out-loud for something they've accomplished.
  • Go out of your way to talk to someone and just "listen" to what's going on in their lives. Make the conversation about them and not you.
  • Share your enthusiasm about something God's done for you. (Be specific)
  • Share how the women's ministry in your church is a blessing to you.
  • Invite someone out or over to lunch or dinner.
  • Have a coffee or a soft drink with someone you don't normally fellowship with.
  • Take someone out for ice-cream just because.
  • Bake someone cookies, a pie, or cake and drop it off to them.
  • Offer to babysit for a mother who needs a break.
  • Pass on a book that you've already read that's been a blessing or that you just thoroughly enjoyed.
  • Pray for someone every day at least 3 times a day for a week. It will probably do you just as much good as the one you are praying for.
  • Invite someone over for tea.
  • Invite a couple ladies over to watch a movie together.
  • Offer to take dinner to a family that you know is in need or could use the help.
  • Give a sister in the Lord a hug.
