If I have had that same experience they are going through i share that with them. Something uplifting accompanied with scripture,perhaps. If they are born again. Tell them a funny story. Pray for them,sing to them. If they are hungry, I would give them a meal and so forth. Encouragement comes in many forms. Sit down have a visit. Just listening to someone can encourage and lift their spirits.

I tell people of the hardships that life has delivered, how the Lord brought me thru them and how my faith is stronger now because of it.

Something that happened to me, how someone encouraged me when God came into my life. One night after Bible study, a brother brought me a gift box, called a "joy Box". It was a shoe box decorated in gift paper. Inside the box were seven small gifts. And seven envelopes which I was to open with one gift box each day. Each box gift inside had a small gift, like a pen or perfume, and on top of the gift a small toy, like a car, or bird, or angel. The first envelope welcome me into the family of Christ. And had the history of this group of sisters who got together and made this Joy boxes for every new believer no matter the denomination. The sister who made the box also prayed for me and God answered her prayers.

If I want to encourage someone I would first ask them if they want to talk about it, then listen, think about what they have said, then respond to them in loving but truthful manner. I would treat them the same way I would want someone to treat me in the same situation. Listen to them, love on them(friendly way),be there.

When I am depress, what I usually do is to sing out loud up to the top of my lungs, and blew it away. Crying out loud can help too. and then, I start counting all the blessings I have and thanks God with all my heart for all that blessings he showered me.

I encourage people by giving a listening ear and sharing an experience regarding the situation that will help them feel better.

One of the best ways to encourage people is when they do something for the church or for us personally, we always thank them and tell them how much we appreciate what they do. No matter how small the job or the task, people should always be thanked for it.

By going out of my way to say something that is truthful that is good.

I have a lot of empathy for people who work with the public (having done a fair amount of this myself). They are often the brunt of people's bad temper and seldom get much appreciation. So I like to say, "Hey, that was really nice! You do a good job! You are so efficient! You make that seem so easy! I'm so glad I found you." (If it's my first time there) I say this only for decent service and a pleasant attitude! I don't know if makes them feel any better, but it makes me feel good!

My church encourages us to use postcards they make in their office, they'll even pay the postage if we just write some encouragement to someone, whether in our church or not. Each card has an encouraging scripture on it too, we love that way of ministering :)

I'd pick out their strong points. I began to talk about them thank God in front of them that they have a strong points. Tell them what they mean to me and to others. I constantly search for anything good says about someone that I know and then I run tell them what I have heard about them which always brings a smile to their face.

I tell my examples that I admire them for showing me how to love.

With people I know are wrong, I do not tell them they are right or great people, but I be their example as well as God corrects me to be, to encourage them how God can make us better. And if someone admits they have problems, I may say it's good to tell the truth about ourselves, but being positive about it, because God can make us better. "Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much."
(James 5:16 - - also, we have Hebrews 5:2). So, I tell them how I, too, can be wrong, but we can do better, and pray for each other.

I compliment them on something I see about them. Whether it be their eyes, I'll say, has anyone ever told you that you have beautiful eyes?

I tell everyone at work (females only) they look nice, great, etc., in that color sweater or whatever makes them look nice.

When my hard-hearted neighbor tells me she's selfish and self-centered, I tell her I don't see her that way and that she really has a wonderful heart.

Yesterday I told my mother she smelled good, what perfume was she wearing? She smiled and said, "Nina Ricci."

Well, if you can get someone to do something, you thank them, and tell them how much you appreciate what they did! And be amazed that they did it. And try not to ask them to do very much, because you might discourage them.

Trish....This post just amazed me. I enjoy hearing these kind of positive comments. It is nice that your students are not subjected to your multiple medical problems. Thank you for giving them a good day.

"Share what you usually do."
I reframe from any type of judgment, accusation, criticism or degradation. I focus on and accentuate the positive, while making a sincere effort to understand and to help overcome the negative, if simply sharing with them my belief that they can.
---Josef on 3/16/10

During the school day, I call my classes "Beautiful people." I thank them for their cooperation and for doing their work. I tell them I am proud of them when they share some good news. I "High Five" and tell them they are awesome. Some of my middle school students here nothing positive at home and I try to give them a positive place in my classroom.

My colleagues, I thank them for allowing me to share burdens with them, or to make copies, and offer to help them when I am able.
