I Encourage You To Try To Encourage Others!
What Is Our Purpose?
Our purpose is to encourage and unite our readers with the love and compassion of Jesus Christ. How and why did our ministry start? It began as a result of the help of my former pastor Ron Sauer and his wife, Sue.
God Brought Something Good Out Of Bad…
They helped me while I was going through some very hard times in my marriage. This website started in Milwaukee in 2007 to encourage others the way have encouraged me in my life.
This ministry of encouragement was established in Milwaukee, WI. Our purpose is to encourage, in a God-honoring way, as many people as possible via the Internet.
What Was The Inspiration To Start This Ministry?
Gratitude Is My Main Motivation!
I wanted to repay Ron and Sue Sauer somehow for all they did to help me. It is very important to have supportive people in your life, even if you are not going through a crisis.
I have been blessed with other wonderful people such as Mark Mallwitz, Dave Briscoe, my mom Diana Greguska, and a few others also influenced me. I feel that God has been leading me to try to encourage others since 2007 because first of all, God wants all of us to encourage one another, second of all, when we encourage others we can not help but experience some encouragement ourselves when doing so. You have been encouraged, so go out and encourage other!

How Did This Ministry Begin?
- This ministry started because of all the help Pastor Ron and Sue Sauer gave me to try to save my marriage. After the marriage failed, they continued to walk with me, they always pointed me to God.
- My prayer is that we can be a comfort and assistance to you kind of like how Ron and Sue consistently pointed me to Jesus!
- To start this ministry obviously was something that God put on my heart to do, and I take that very seriously…
What Makes A Person A Good Christian?
What Does Hope Have To Do With Encouragement?
Consider this: Your thoughts are like a train engine, and the caboose is like your feelings. The problem comes in when we allow our feelings to run the train, rather than sound knowledge and wisdom.
You need to have hope that your situation will improve and have faith that God is the answer to all your difficulties, then you will be on the right track.
It is not necessarily about finding happiness in your life, but rather about finding God and then to follow Him in your daily life.
Psalm 46:1 God Is Our Refuge And Strength, An Ever Present Help In Times Of Trouble.
Have You Been Struggling?
If you are struggling with stress or anger, then you need to focus on those areas. If you are struggling with an alcohol or drug problem, or pornography or any other type of addiction, you need to educate yourself or get help for areas of your weakness.
Remember, sometimes helping and encouraging others is the best way to help yourself. Think about how good you felt the last time you focused on helping someone else.
No Lone Rangers!
Do not think you can do it all in your own power. You need to trust God and his word when He tells us to love one another, so when you encourage others, you will be doing God’s will, and you, in turn, will be blessed for your honoring God.
We Encourage You To Love And Forgive Others!
