Gary Chapman and Encouraging Words

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue,and those who love it will eat its fruits.”
-Proverbs 18:21

A few words from Gary Chapman:

Is there something your spouse has expressed a desire to do? Such as: loose weight, write an article, go back to school, or learn to ski? Then why not encourage their dream? Many dreams are killed by a spouse or friend who says, “It’s not realistic.” “We can’t afford it.” “You won’t follow through.” Why be a dream killer?

Learn to speak encouraging words such as: “I know you can do it because you are an excellent writer.” “If you want to go back to school, we’ll find the money.” “If you decide to go on a diet, I’ll be happy to join you.” One encouraging statement can be the difference between success and failure. Remember, we give life or death to people’s dreams by what we say.
