Need Encouragement? Here’s a Basketful!

Cynthia Herron Encouragement Leave a Comment

Ahhh. Wednesday. The  mid-week slump.

Are you feeling a little blah? A little unmotivated?

Well, I’m so happy you’ve stopped by! I have just the cure!

Today I’ve pulled out all stops and picked a basketful of encouragement just for you.

I’ve combed through the archives and chosen a few of my favorite posts—ones that will uplift, inspire, and brighten your day.

I do this periodically to offset the “noise”—the No No Nancys, Downer Dans, and hard seasons you may encounter. (Let’s face it. Sometimes, a breather’s in order!)

So just for a few moments, sit back, unwind, and soak up the joy. If there’s a post you’ve read before, skip and go on, or re-read again and feel the love. =)

Oh—and by all means—share!
