I saw a printable on Pinterest that read "I Teach. What's your Super Power?"
And I had to create my own that says:
Because I believe encouragement is the real super power. Encouragement transforms lives. Encouragement speaks hope. Encouragement confirms and affirms one's value. Encouragement validates. Encouragement motivates. Encouragement helps one persevere. Encouragement offers courage. Encouragement says you are totally capable.
Encouragement is oxygen to the soul.
-George Matthew Adams
You never know when a moment and a few sincere words can have am impact on a life.
And unlike teaching, you do not need a degree to possess the Super Power of Encouragement. You do not need money either. You really do not even need to be gifted with words. The Super Power of Encouragement is open to anyone. Anyone willing to take a few minutes out of their busy day and be intentional in communicating words of hope, courage, appreciation, or validation.
One compliment can keep me going for a whole month.
How do you identify someone who needs encouragement?
That person is breathing.
And DaySpring recently sent me a whole slew of U-NEEKS Cards because DaySpring knows that one tangible way to share encouragement with others is by sending a card.
The silly creatures on these cards so put a smile on your face. The cards are silly and quirky and filled with notes of encouragement. I sent one to my neice for her bday. And there is a lion one that says, "You're one of my favorites and I ain't LION" that I want to put in one of my kids' lunchboxes.
This walrus card says inside. . ."Toothfully. . .I think you're awethome!" And then has the scripture Proverbs 27:9 on it "A sweet friendship refreshes the soul."
And DaySpring wants to give one of you a U-NEEKS Card Pack and U-NEEKS Friendship Card Pack. That's 18 cards valued at $35. DaySpring is only doing 3 giveaways this month and this is one of them!!
