When my book entitled, “Encouragement: How to Be and Find the Best” was released in 2019, I could not have guessed the positive ripple effect it would have on people. Feedback continues to be deeply rewarding, as people send messages to me about how uplifting they found this fast read (or “listen” for those on audiobooks) to be. There is no greater gift than learning we have made a positive impact on some corner of our little world. If you know someone who needs a boost, you can grab a digital edition for them for less than 3 bucks.
Heading into the holidays is a joyous time for many and a difficult time for many others. I have always believed that people choose to be an Encourager or a Discourager. While it is always important to always try to encourage people, this rings resoundingly true now. Just do the best we can.
Just want to say thank you for all the marvelous things you write and share. Very refreshing, and definitely uplifting.
Thank you, Susan. I have been blessed, and I always attempt to pay it forward.
