For One Another 2014 Challenge: Encourage One Another


When I started this blog I named it For One Another for a reason.  My plan was to use it to help others to live a life of encouragement to one another.  Thus my theme verse at the top of this blog:

1 Thessalonians 5:11
Therefore encourage one another and build one another up!

Let's start 2014 with some ideas of HOW to encourage one another. I am going to attempt to come up with easy ways we can live "encouraging one another and building one another up" Hopefully, over time,  a habit of encouragement is developed even if it's only in a small way.  

Let's get started!

As a blogger sometimes I get discouraged.  Writing posts takes times.....a lot of time.  I can't tell you how often I'll write something, then hit delete and try again.  Bloggers work HARD at what they do yet often it seems to go unnoticed.

There is something you can do to encourage a blogger.....


On some posts I've had as many as 200 views yet no one comments....not one word :(  Yea, this is very discouraging.  

Starting today any blog that you visit, leave a comment.  It doesn't have to be long, just a "hi, I enjoyed reading this today".  Or something about the post that you liked or even disagreed with.  
If you want a bigger challenge, comment on a least 5 Facebook posts today too!  

Try it!  I guarantee you will bring a smile to a bloggers face if you take a couple of minutes to comment.
