21 Days of Encouragement (and a Giveaway)

“Therefore encourage one another and build each other up.”
1 Thessalonians 5:11 ESV

I don’t know about you, but I love when people encourage me. Whether it’s a thoughtful text, a hug or a handwritten card, I walk away with a little spring in my step. Don’t you?

I also love to encourage people. My mom is an encourager and watching her over the years has rubbed off on me.  Knowing how significant people’s words of love and encouragement have been in my own life inspires me to pay it forward. (Click here for a previous post on this topic: The Weight of Our Words - Part III.)

So I was super excited to hear about the opportunity to partner with DaySpring for their 21-Day Encouragement Campaign, which starts today! For the next 21 days we’ll intentionally commit to encouraging at least one person a day. I sure hope you’ll join me!

To get us inspired for the 21-Day Encouragement Campaign, my friends over at DaySpring sent me some goodies to give away! I’ll be giving away two sets of beautiful Sadie Robertson boxed card sets and a beautiful gift bag that you can use to encourage others. (They're pictured above.)

I just love buying cards and sending some happy mail to mailboxes of my loved ones. There’s something about a handwritten card that’s so powerful (especially since nowadays we usually text or e-mail)! It’s so special to know that someone took the extra time and effort to send you a card.

To enter the drawing, see below. You can enter daily until Thursday, May 12th at midnight MST. The winners will be selected randomly and will be notified on Friday.

I hope you’ll take a few minutes after reading this and jot down the names of people you’d like to encourage over the next three weeks. There are so many ways that you can inspire and uplift others and DaySpring has compiled lots of creative ideas to help us, click here: 21 Days of Encouragement

If you’re looking to send handwritten cards over the next 21 days, DaySpring is having a sale on their boxed cards: 2 for $10I always love having cards to send at the ready. I also have a special promo code for you: take $25 off any $75 order with the code 25SAVE. Offer ends June 30th.

You can also send out beautiful e-cards over at the DaySpring website

I’ll be sending out reminders on social media, but you might also consider setting an encouragement reminder or alarm on your phone. And why stop after the 21 days are over? Wouldn’t it be awesome if we all begin to regularly encourage people? Just imagine the impact we can have!

I'd love to hear about your 21 Days of Encouragement. Leave a comment, send me an e-mail or write me a note on social media. Don't forget about the giveaway and help spread the word about this awesome campaign! Use #dayspring.
