I want to be an encourager like my friend Amy. She has a way of speaking truth into my life at just the right times. She is the queen of sending cards or writing texts that brighten the dreariest of days.

Amy sent a package this week with a gift inside for my birthday boy. The thoughtfulness meant almost more to me than the gift itself (though it's an awesome gift, too.) Her encouragement and generosity makes me want to a better giver and encourager.

Do you know anyone who could use a pick-me-up? Someone who needs to be reminded that she is wonderfully made? or that she is a woman of dignity? or that she is strong?

So here's the deal: If you buy a print in the next two weeks and drop me a line letting me know it is a gift of encouragement, I'll cover your shipping fee. I'll even send it right to your friend's address with a note saying it's from you, if you want.

Let's be better givers and encouragers and dreary-day-brighteners like Amy.
