Encouragement is Good for the Soul

"Each of us should please our neighbors for their good, to build them up." Romans 15:2

US President George W. Bush signed a message declaring September 12 to be the National Day of Encouragement. But here at GSSA we’re suggesting that you do small acts of kindness all week long.

How to Celebrate National Day of Encouragement All week Long

  • Craft a handwritten letter or card to a friend or family member that is going through a tough time

  • Read and share encouraging and motivating quotes

  • Provide reassurance and inspiration to people around you

  • Give a High Five to someone for a job well done

  • Show your support by attending a friend’s performance, sporting or art exhibit
