Did you know that the majority of people have words of affirmation as one of their love languages. Another way to say this is that most people like hearing words of encouragement. We did a study with our Michigan Christian summer camp staff and found that 70-80% of them prefer words of encouragement to other forms of appreciation. 1 Thess 5:11 says “Therefore, encourage one another and build each other up just as in fact you are doing.” Never underestimate the power of a word of encouragement. Here’s a fun, creative idea to encourage people. Make a homemade card with specialty paper from Joann Fabric. Put a verse on the front and write a note of encouragement on the inside. It will make someone’s day!
