Women need motivation and encouragement from their sisters in the Lord.  Nothing is more special than just a little touch that comes 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.

Motivation and Encouragement in Women's Ministry

Our volunteers and helpers need encouragement and motivation as well.  Everyone needs a pat on the back now and then.

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

Things to do to encourage others

  • 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.

  • Offer to babysit for a mother who needs a break.

  • 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.
