Think of the half-dozen times in your life when a bit of encouragement carried you for a long time. A word or card here and there boosted your confidence and outlook. It just made you feel good.

But you know what they say, it's better to give than to receive. If only we realize the impact a well-placed note of support and motivation can have on the people around us. It might spur them on to achieve great things! Or at least lift a chin off a chest.

Best-selling author Ken Sutterfield believes passionately that we are to encourage one another and look for people who need an encouraging word. These stories illustrate the impact well-timed words have had on various lives.

Read them for your own enjoyment, then go out and practice!
