Words of Encouragement
"I felt like there was someone out there who really needed these Words of Encouragement to help through difficult times. I hope you enjoy and always "Hang In There!""

A friend of mine (Sal) once shared in church a "parallel" story about his recent drive on Columbia Avenue in Morris. He noticed how some trees were cut down as the city prepares to widen the road. This visual picture reminded him how words can "cut" people. Then he shared how we need to "build each other up" through words of encouragement.

I've (Sal) decided to start an archive of encouraging e-mails I get from folks through my various e-mail accounts. This is to not "brag" about myself, but to remember what folks say as I reminder to "keep going" on day to day!...

"learn to do right! Seek justice, encourage the oppressed. Defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow..."-Isaiah 1:17

Dear Brother In Christ,
YOur E-mails are hitting personal to my heart in the way I grow in Christ. You are a good man Sal. I under no cercomstans (spelled wrong)take us talking and growing in Christ together when we do actually talk for granted. To the United Church of Christ. Do the will of God, not of yor own. For no man shall gain anything if the works are done out of no heart. The heart of a man in the Holy spirit's name, can do great wonders. Do not worry too much about eachother as Christians, to the point of becoming cold shouldered and put a blanket over your eyes. Always have the heart of a Child and just love one another, without judgment. Only one can Judge and thats God.

Thanks for your desire/willingness to encourage the church body! To be sure, people do need encouragement or recognition from time to time, and this can be expressed to them in many different ways. I recommend writing an individualized note or card, expressing your own appreciation for the person's unique gifts. This is a thoughtful way to edify the church in love, as we are commanded to, and is often more effective than a typical public recognition (especially for shy folks).

Thanks for the thought, Sal. You've inspired me to think about how to encourage others in ways they don't expect!

It's funny caz that was the first time I had ever gone back since I was three! And I found out that was your first tim going back since you were three years old too!! I also really enjoy reading your thoughts about Jesus. It's soo awesome to know that Jesus Christ is the lover of your soul..and that he is your Lord and Savior.

Even though I am a caucasion woman I totaly get what you said about the racism and social struggles kids had back then. I remember the racial tention that was in the halls, and i was 20 feet away during the shooting after the pep rally in 94. It was scary to think that kids were this full of anger. I am glad that you used that to fuel your fire to do good and that you didn't let those negative events in your life cripple the person you were meant to be. You brought me back to a time that I enjoyed as well. I think you should go back to harding and be a speaker to all of the kids regardless of race and motivate them, becaues I was, maby even educate them on the history of how most of the hmong and lao came to live here. Maby if people understood they would think smarter. I thank you for your trip down memory lane. "

Thanks for sending me those websites - I never imagined how much information would be on them! Seriously, you are incredibly thorough and your site is a very good resource. I can't help but wonder how you could be so incredibly motivated and where you got the time to make that detailed of a site...but I suppose I shouldn't be surprised, you appear to put 110% into everything you definitely inspire me to work harder! Currently, I cannot think of any info you forgot to send me, but I was able to gather much more than I had expected on your website. I also enjoyed the information about the group home - I really enjoy my job working at a Day Program for Disabled adults, and though I cannot get paid for it, I would love to volunteer on a regular basis (weekly) next year at the group home, so I will have to contact you when I get back up to Morris. Until then, keep up the good witness - with the passion you have for your ministry, I have no doubt you're making a difference!

Hey Sal!

Thanks for the thanks! My meditation for today is Mark 9:50, which talks about being salt for the world. My prayer to God was to make me salt, and show me what salt truly is. There were many cross references verses that talked about how our words edify each other. Then, it occured to me that we can be salt by speaking words of encouragement to one another (Ephesians 4:29 was one of the cross references). Anyway, when reading your webpage, it was obvious that you were making the delicious dish of Morris (and beyond) a little more salty!

Thanks Sal for being Sal(t)!

You are so Blessed by Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It feels my heart with joy to know that there are young adult Christians making a difference in this world. When I was in the workforce here in MN. The racism was so obvious. It hurt me so bad. I could hardly concentrate on my tasks. God always edifies and encourages me that the righteous will be rewarded. I find solace in that. You stay encouraged, Peace be with you.

"Hey Sal,
How have you been doing? As for me, I've been taking it one day at a time. The Lord has been consistently opening up doors for me that I thought were closed. I'm currently in Baltimore, MD. I like it here, but I have to be prepared to relocate if the opportunity presents itself, because I'm always looking for a position in urban planning. Sal, I want to thank you all that you did for me during my stay in Morris, you are definitely a blessing from God, because you prompted me to view things there in a certain way. For that, I will always be indebted.
God Bless,

The Bible has been very encouraging from me as its' a "love letter" from my Heavenly Father, which I try to read in my daily devotions/meditations morning and evening (Joshua 1:8).

Taming the Tongue, James 3:1-8 (

"9With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in God's likeness. 10Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers, this should not be. 11Can both fresh water and salt[a] water flow from the same spring? 12My brothers, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water."-James 3 NIV

The Power of Words

Keep on hoppin'

A group of frogs were traveling through the woods, and two of them fell into a deep pit. All the other frogs gathered around the pit. When they saw how deep the pit was, they told the two frogs that they were as good as dead.

The two frogs ignored the comments and tried to jump out of the pit with all of their might. The group of frogs kept telling them to stop because they were as good as dead. Finally, one of the frogs took heed to what the other frogs were saying and gave up. He fell down and died.

The second frog continued to jump as hard as he could. Once again, the crowd of frogs yelled at him to stop the pain and just die. He jumped even harder and finally made it out. You see this frog was deaf, unable to hear what the others were saying. He thought they were encouraging him the entire time.

This story teaches a lesson... There is the power of life and death in the tongue. An encouraging word to someone who is down can lift them up and help them make it through the day. A destructive word to someone who is down can be what it takes to kill them. Be careful of what you say. Speak life to those who cross your path. The power of encouraging words can go such a long way.

" When you are feeling alone like no one cares, read this cuz its absolutely true: Every night, someone thinks about you before they go to sleep. At least fifteen people in this world love you. The only reason someone would ever hate you is because they want to be just like you. There are at least two people in this world that would die for you. You mean the world to someone. Someone that you don't even know exists loves you. When you make the biggest mistake ever, something good comes from it. When yo When you are feeling alone like no one cares, reu think the world has turned its back on you, take a look. Always remember the compliments you've received. Forget the rude remarks. So if you are a loving person, send this to everyone on your list including the person who sent it too you

"But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness."-Hebrews 3:13

    Congratulations to Nick Vujicic ♥ Kanae Miyahara

    Heartiest congratulations to Nick Vujicic and Kanae Miyaharaa on their wedding. Wishing the beautiful couple a wonderful blessed journey as they build their new life together.
    ++++++++++++++++++++ Motivational Speaker Nick Vujicic Gets Married Feb 17, 2012
    By Debbie Emery - Radar Reporter
    Now this is a truly inspirational story.
    A man who was born without limbs and has spent his life motivating others is now benefiting from all that good karma by marrying the love of his life.
    Motivational speaker Nick Vujicic married Kanae Miyahara on February 12 in a romantic ceremony in California, and now the happy couple are enjoying their honeymoon in Hawaii.
    Just like any other newlyweds, they are spending their romantic vacation relaxing on the beach, taking holiday photos and enjoying sunset cocktails -- the only thing that makes them different is that Nick has no arms or legs, but that's never stopped him from fulfilling any of this life dreams so it certainly wasn't going to prevent him from making a trip down the aisle.
    Born in 1982 in Melbourne, Australia, there was no medical explanation or warning to suggest that Nick was going to be different from any other baby until his birth. Parents Pastor Boris and Dushka Vujicic were determined that his disability wouldn't prevent their son from leading a normal life, or even skateboarding like other kids!
    The self-sufficient boy soon began learning to do daily tasks on his own, such as writing with the two toes on his left foot with a special grip that slid onto his big toe. He then learned to use a computer and type using the "heel and toe" method, and even throw tennis balls, play drum pedals, get himself a glass of water, comb his hair, brush his teeth, answer the phone and shave.
    After a tough time in school being bullied for being different, Nick went to college and got a double Bachelor's degree, majoring in Accounting and Financial Planning from Griffith University in Logan, Australia.
    Instead of wallowing in his misfortunate, Nick was determined to make the most of the cards God dealt him and help others. "I found the purpose of my existence, and also the purpose of my circumstance. There's a purpose for why you're in the fire," he wrote on his website for his non-profit organization,
    Vujicic has since made a name for himself traveling around the world as a motivational speaker, and finally made the big move from Australia to California in 2007, where he popped the question to Kanae last August.
    "The greatest blessing I've ever received after life, salvation, and a relationship with God: introducing Nick and Kanae engaged!!!" he told his many fans.
