Encouragement Cards


A wonderful activity that will help build each other up in the body of Christ is to write easy encouragement cards. We did this once in a women’s Bible study at our church. We each had a large card (more than double the size of a 3 by 5 card). Write your name in the middle of the card. Now pass the card to the right. Write down one good character quality you enjoy about that person. After about two minutes, everybody passes their cards to the right. You do this until you have the card with your name on it, with lots of happy, wonderful comments about you on it. I was so overjoyed, I had tears in my eyes. These were some of the comments people said about me:

“Honesty and passion for truth.”

“Your face is the face I look for when I need encouragement. You are such a blessing.”

“Your love and concern for others.”

“My prayer warrior. What a blessing you are.”

“Your faithfulness to pray for people at our church and your zeal to know God’s Word and apply it as His Spirit unveils its relevance to issues in your life.”

“I love your love of truth and your deep conviction.”

“Your prayers for me! Thank you!”

“Loves God’s Word.”

“Love having you and your insights in our group (and love your hair).”

“You’re courageous and strong.”

    What a wonderful idea! We don’t tell people how much they mean to us- and we really need to! Thank you for sharing this- I want to do this!

      I should do this with my husband and kids, too. I can have people write good things about them on a card and give it to them on their birthday.

  3. It’s a great idea to say positive things about someone else. Your words benefit the giver and the receiver.

    • Susan says:

      Yes! I loved writing good things about everyone else in the room. Even if I didn’t know the woman very well, I could still think of something positive to say about her.
