Words of Wisdom

"Our chief want is someone who will inspire us to be what we know we could be."
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

All words matter. They have the power to define, to transform and to uplift us, especially those words spoken to us as we are growing up. That's why encouragement is so important. We all need it. It's like a great big hug to the heart. Just a few inspiring words can seem so small yet live so big in our memories. The best part? Those encouraged often grow up to be encouragers themselves. They know how influential those words were in their own lives. What a noble opportunity, to build up those who are most impressionable by showing them who they can be with some simple words of encouragement.

With something to think about . . .
