Where Can You Find Some Encouragement?
Be encouraged and inspired to grow spiritually and emotionally!
“Life is 10% of what happens to you and 90% of how you react to it.” ~ Chuck Swindoll
The fact is that we all have been through our share of discouragements in life. I learned in my life that to overcome a problem, you need to get your mind out of the problem and into the solution. My suggestion is that the first thing you do is to take your concerns to God. Then, after reaching out to God for His direction, support, and encouragement, I then suggest you talk to a close friend, pastor, or someone you trust to reinforce the encouragement that God has already started to do in you. It is good to have someone to keep you accountable and to be there for you. One thing that many people overlook is to try to encourage someone else. In doing so, you will see that your problems will begin to fade! Look through our website to see many topics, some topics will be specifically what you need.
It is critical that you stop focusing on your difficulties, instead concentrate on the many solutions and opportunities that God provides as a way out from under those difficulties. I believe that one of the best things to do is to get right with God if you do not have a relationship with God presently. Don’t be fooled to think that becoming a Christian that all your problems will completely disappear, but it does mean that you can always take your problems to God, and He will help show you the right way to deal with them!
An important step to take is a personal inventory of your life. I would emphasize the need for having a stronger faith in God, no matter where you are in your faith right now. Prayer, reading your Bible and fellowship with other believers are very powerful ways to grow.

Facts about our encouragement ministry
Our ministry began because all the help my former pastor Ron Sauer and his wife Sue gave me while I was going through some very hard times in my life. I wanted to repay them somehow for all they did to help me, and that is when Sue Sauer planted the seed in my mind to help others. So that was enough for me to create this website in 2007 to encourage others, the way I have been encouraged by God in my life. This ministry of encouragement was established in Milwaukee, WI. Our purpose is to encourage as many people possible via the Internet in a God-honoring way while doing so. We ask you to tell others you know about us who could use some encouragement.
