How to use encouragement in a sentence?

  1. Alexander Michael:

    Knowing that I am not the one in control gives great encouragement. Knowing the One who is in control is everything.

  2. Sidney Madwed:

    The finest gift you can give anyone is encouragement. Yet, almost no one gets the encouragement they need to grow to their full potential. If everyone received the encouragement they need to grow, the genius in most everyone would blossom and the world would produce abundance beyond the wildest dreams. We would have more than one Einstein, Edison, Schweitzer, Mother Theresa, Dr. Salk and other great minds in a century.

  4. Lauryn Hill:

    I loved and believed deeply in my community's ability to both love and heal itself provided it received the right amount of support and encouragement, our world today, both complex and changing, is in need of the balance between moral fortitude and cathartic expression. I hope the love and energy that permeated this work can continue to inspire change with love and optimism at the helm.

  5. Paul Ryan:
