Encouragement tip: SIMPLE & FUN..

One secret is:  LISTEN.  

When you hear what someone is saying, you can play off of their words -what fun!

As I was making a purchase at Verizon yesterday, the sales associate, Hannah, asked me if she could take a picture of me (with my new product) to post as a satisfied Verizon customer.  

I had fun being playful in this moment and said, 'Sure...if I can then have a pix of you with one of my cards.'  She was like, 'Sure, what kind of cards?'   I started to tell her about UPwords cards and how they can be used to encourage others every day.  She said, 'I need this!! I have had such a hard day!'   I pulled out a few different cards for her to see - she was drawn to the card named  'b r e a t h e'  as she let me know it  was just what she needed.  She smiled as she read it aloud.  She told me how she knew God sent me into  the store. I told her that God is always doing small things along the way, in her life, to get her attention because He cares for her.  A simple thing like this card made it a day changer for her.

    I love the FREEDOM card. I think it’s a great word of encouragement to give or receive. This card is a great reminder to embrace relationship with Christ as we are FREE in Him. I look forward to giving this card to many people in the future.
