"...but an encouraging word makes it glad." Proverbs 12:25

I had a really great talk with my sister recently about encouraging the younger generation. Ever since, I have been looking for opportunities to pour confidence and encouraging words into my little ones on a daily basis. The fact is, I have people encouraging me every day... building me up and pushing me forward. I desire to be that for the loved ones God has placed nearest and dearest to me. I love that Valentine's Day is coming up because I am finding lots of cute stuff to help me in my new endeavor! Here are some inspiring scriptures that are a great reminder:

"Anxiety in a man's heart weighs it down,
but an encouraging words makes it glad."
Proverbs 12:25

 "And we urge you, brothers and sisters...encourage the disheartened, help the weak, be patient with everyone. Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always strive to do what is good for each other and for everyone else."
1 Thessalonians 5:14,15

"Therefore encourage one another and build each other up,
just as in fact you are doing."
1 Thessalonians 5:1

"As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another."
Proverbs 17:17

What do you do to bring encouragement to your household?

*** Ironically, as I was typing this post, my husband just walked into the office and completely drowned me in encouragement. Seeing how much that built up my spirit after a very taxing day, gives me even more confidence that I need to be doing that very thing for my children. ***
