October Already? Why I Started Words of Encouragement

Happy October 1st! Welcome to Words of Encouragement!   Just me, Dr. K. Lee! 🙂   Happy October 1st to all! What happened to September? I totally lost the last half, as you may have noticed by not seeing any blog posts since mid-September!   I have once again joined the Ultimate Blog Challenge (UBC) this month for some additional motivation to write consistently.

Learn to Love Yourself so You Can Love Others

Loving Ourselves to Better Love Others   This one fits in nicely with my last post about how we need to learn to love ourselves appropriately before we can genuinely love others without an agenda or conditions. Here are some thoughts on this topic… “Many people fail at marriage because they don’t love themselves, and therefore they have nothing to give in the relationship. They spend most of their time trying to get from their spouses what only God can…
