You have things to say and we need to hear them. It could be writing a book or writing a song or writing the ABC’s with your child. It might be dancing on a stage or dancing with your husband in the living room.

Whatever “it” is, we need it. We need your stories and your laughs, your songs and your tears.

We need what you have to offer because only you can share it with the world.


Every Life Tells A Story

You have a voice and we need you to use it. Your voice is your art, painting grace and listening with love every ordinary day.

It’s in the words you say and the cards you write. It’s the encouragement given through hugs or a knowing look, laughter or chatting over coffee.

You are one person, yes. You have one voice and it may feel small. But you have a gift inside you and it’s called encouragement. And that gift? It’s meant to be shared.

So today let’s all say one small yes. To leaving the laundry and playing a game, to an extra scoop of ice cream, to a Facebook status that shows the real and not a mask, to using our voice for good.

You can tear this world down or build it up by choosing to stay silent or to speak up.


#fmfpartysnailmail was born out of a bunch of us looking for encouragement in our mailboxes. Each week, slipped between a bill or a magazine or a newsletter, is a hand-written note of encouragement, a verse or a reminder that God is always enough. Today I am welcoming my #fmfpartysnailmail friends to this new space and inviting them to link-up some encouragement for us to read. Please feel free to link-up as well, whether you are part of Round Three or not! And then scroll down to enter the DaySpring giveaway, click here to enter the Rhinestone Jesus giveaway, or maybe even look back with me to a January #fmfparty post about encouragement and the beginning of #fmfpartysnailmail.
