Encouraging words

I would say that I come off as more critical than encouraging (others may disagree, but I know my heart). Cindy is like that too. Comes mainly from the feedback and environment we had as children. As a result, we have to be proactive in encouraging our children, and each other. I for one am a man of few (encouraging) words. Cindy knows she is loved and appreciated, but not told or shown nearly as much as she should be, I suppose. Likewise, it doesn’t trickle down as much as it should.

One awesome trend I see is that when we get encouragement from all of YOU, our readers, we, in turn, keep it going. Sometimes it comes the other way around–when we are more proactive, we get a lot of encouragement from those the Lord is ministering to through our ministry.

I certainly want to encourage all of you to proactively encourage those around you. It is amazing how much impact a few kind words, a brief phone call, or a quick note can have on an individual, and as a result, all the people in their sphere of influence. Here are a few words of encouragement we have received from out there in cyberspace.

Here are some notes from our readers (all from 2008)–numerous thank yous and God bless yous also. We get thousands of visitors and really appreciate every single encouraging comment. Although we serve an audience of ONE, it’s really nice to hear that the resources are having an impact. Thank YOU from all of us at Values-Driven!

I recently ordered The Growing Homeschool and have been enjoying reading it. I look forward to hearing more from you guys that will encourage and lift me up in this journey.

I downloaded some of your freebies yesterday, and forgot to subscribe to the newsletter. I have heard wonderful things about your books, and as soon as I am financially able I want to order them. I will have to just go with the newsletter at this time, because we just found out that between my meds for my MS and my daughter’s meds for her autism pretty much swallows any extra cash we may of been able to squeeze for this. I am in the process of trying to start to come up with something for my 5 little blessings, and hope that I can get your resources soon. Especially the character building one.

I received the budget worksheet (Values Driven Budget Worksheet 1.0.3) via a TOS “Freebie Friday” deal. A nice little package, indeed.

Thank you and God bless.

I look forward to receiving all these valuable materials–they are very worthwhile and enjoy passing them on!
