Sweet Words: Offering Encouragement Can be Simple and Effective

To anyone who is overwhelmed, sad, anxious, fearful, or depressed, helpful words can go a long way. If you know of a mom (or anyone) who could use some encouragement, do not hesitate to share a few kind thoughts. A simple text or email can go a long way. Saying things like “you sure are doing a good job” or “your child is so blessed to have you as a mommy” or “you’re a beautiful mom” will do WONDERS for her. Here is a Bible verse based on the importance of sharing words.

Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:2

King Solomon reminds us of the power of words through his wise proverb. Talking is easy, and sharing some kind words doesn’t take long at all. It brings sweet joy to the recipient.

We all need encouragement. Since none of us are perfect, it helps to have a good chunk of grace thrown our way as we do our best to work, live, and have relationships. Know that polite comments and kind compliments are very helpful. And remember that Jesus offers the best grace of all. It’s sweet!
