That is when Sue planted the seed in my mind to help others which lead to me start this Encouragement Ministry. Also, Mark Mallwitz was another key person who has encouraged me along with Dave Briscoe and a few others such as my mom Diana Greguska. It is very important to have family and friends offer support in your life, even if you are not going through a crisis of any kind.
When / Where Did Need Encouragement Ministry Begin?
A little bit more about us is that this Encouragement Ministry started out of my home in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, first as a 24-Hour Encouragement Help Phone Line in the winter of 2005 that was up and running for about 5 years until I decided that more people were using the website, so I changed over completely in 2007, when I expanded the ministry into the current website NeedEncouragement.com. I was encouraged to start it because of all the help Pastor Ron and Sue Sauer have me to help save my marriage.

It’s Important What You Focus Your Attention On!
Of course, you need to focus on things that are good and Godly for your life. 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 possibly struggling with pornography or any other type of addiction you need to educate get help for yourself in whatever area you are more weak in.
But also remember, sometimes helping and encouraging others is the best way to help yourself. Remember how good you felt the last time when you focused on helping someone else. Now think how good you will feel encouraging others on a regular basis, not to mention how others will feel so much better too! Isn’t that what makes life worth living?
A little disclaimer, 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 of God. Romans 13:8
