I love encouraging others. There's been so many times in my life when I needed someone to come along side of me, to share their wisdom and inspiration, to be a truth-teller and give me a bit of tough-love with a hug. I needed them to take the time to soothe my soul by sharing a song, a scripture, or a story, just to pump me back up. As I grew in my faith, it became obvious that people felt comfortable coming to me for encouragement. What a blessing to me (and hopefully them).

What I've learned from my precious encouragers is if we're open enough to reshape how they think, curious enough to without judgement, ask "why", and courageous enough to allow our lives to be changed, we WILL grow and become encouragers to others. 

Whether it's how we see PTSD and those that struggle with it, or the grief that threatens to consume us, or whatever you're grappling with, I believe it's in each of us to be encouragers, AND if you feel the same, I want YOU In Studio with me! 

Help me reach and grow my worldwide followers by tuning into the TM Lunch Bunch. It's a lively, 15 minute broadcast every last Monday of the month from 12:15-12:30 pm CST. If that doesn't work for you, connect with me on social media and we can encourage each other there!

On TMLB, I'm so blessed to visit with new, seasoned, and award-winning writers, change-makers, and fellow encouragers. Those who step up and stand out for Christ, and those who show us all how to weave our faith and God's favor into all we do. The revelations, encouragement, and inspiration will help fill our cups, so we can continue being a source of love and light to others. Come join me!
