  1. This will be a great training experience for oblivious me! I’m hoping that 30 days will be just the beginning of seeing the needs around me and reaching out to care.

  2. (in)courage,
    I’m signed up!! I know that ALL of you who participate in this community have encouragement as your “Super Power” – I’ve been the recipient of a lot of your kindness. Let’s “take it to the streets” as the DB song says. Encouragers unite…we can do this 🙂 Let’s make every day National Encouragement Day!!

  3. What an awesome challenge. Brings to mind one of my favorite quotes.

    Between the great things we can’t do and the small things we refuse to do lies the danger that we will do nothing at all.

    One act of kindness, one person, one smile, can be just what someone needed at that moment. One person CAN make a difference.

    May Christ bless our hands, our words, our steps as we reach out…

  4. This reminds me of an inspirational quote by Mother Teresa: “Not all of us can do great things, but we can do small things with great love.” At the core of encouragement is a heart focused on showing God’s love. Thank you Dayspring for inspiring us to look for ways to encourage and share God’s pure, perfect love!

  5. I am more than ready!!! We will be instruments for God to use in order to spread HIS love.
    Blessings dear sisters through Christ.

  6. Definitely something out world needs ….I’m all signed up !
    Such a great idea, I’m excited to get started as I try each day to send a text, all, smile, hug, to someone throughout my day….we never know their story or how this may help…Social Media just shows the “ sugar coated” things of most ….

  7. This is a great challenge but I am not able to sign up with my email. It won’t take my email.

  8. In Courage,

    This reminds me of a poem: “There are two dates on a tombstone. There’s a birth date & day of death. But that little dash that lies between the numbers is what defines our lives. So make your dash count. Live–Really live.” We need to make our lives count for something. People want to be remembered when they die. I want the world to see Christ through me. I want to be known as someone who cared deeply for others. Lately I’ve taken food to my elderly neighbor. She lost her youngest & last son to cancer. She is pretty much alone in the world now. No one left but her granddaughter & a sister in nursing home. That is caring for others! Showing God’s love to them! Let’s get out there & shine shine shine!!!!

    Blessings 🙂

  9. I am ready and willing to allow God to use me as I am, for this inspiration of His. Thank you everyone for your encouragement and hopefulness in our Lord, it is, rather, He is, contagious and good medicine!

  10. I’m signed up and super excited. I’ve posted it out to my community of lady friends. Can’t wait to hear how God uses this to impact a world that is in desperate need of a little TLC. Don’t know about you, but I’m ready to make a difference.
