  1. What a fun, creative post! I’ve been thinking lately about new ways to encourage my faraway peeps and this is a great tool. Thanks for sharing this with us, Rachel! XO

  2. Thank you Rachelle for some practical tips on how to encourage people. I just love the idea of care packages. Our church used to assemble care packages for troops overseas. It was a way to say thanks we’re thinking of you!!

    I may just do this for some special people in my life!

    God Bless!! 🙂

    • Yes, this doesn’t have to be a practice strictly for close friends. I used to attend a church that sent out regular packages to the missionary families the church supported. It might also be a good idea for moms of new babies or church members who are ill, even if we don’t know them very well.

    • Glad you found it helpful. Now maybe you have a use for some of those blank journals sitting around the house! 🙂 I have a fondness for journals too.

  3. I love this! I’ve Pinned it and now I’m going to do it! I’ve sent care packages to my kids at camp or college, but never to a friend. And I have a friend in mind right now who could use one. Love it!

  4. I do believe all the ideas you’ve introduced on your post. They’re very convincing and can certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are too quick for newbies. Could you please prolong them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.
