How Can I Encourage You? 2015 Reader’s Survey & Thank You Giveaway

Gold Brush Stroke

“We will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage one another with these words.” 1 Thessalonians 4:17-18

There are many Scripture passages that address the importance of community and encouraging one another. God obviously knew we’d need others to keep us focused on Him in and through all the circumstances of life.

Life is messy. There are setbacks, hardships, pain, and sorrow. But there are also joy, love, peace, and excitement. And throughout all of life flows the beauty of an unquenchable hope. A hope that comes only from the Savior, Jesus Christ.

If you’ve been following me for even a short time, you know that I love to encourage others in the hope of Christ.

I love to encourage you

The Lord has a purpose and a plan for each of us. Right now I believe He wants me to pour out inspiration and love to you.

Encourage one another.

How Can I Encourage You?

However in order to do that, I need to know what you need from me. With what issues are you struggling? In what areas do you need the most encouragement? What pulls you down? What is your messy?

Sooo, to gather all that info, I’m conducting another survey (my last one was in December 2013). My 2015 Reader’s Survey is only 10 questions long and is super easy to complete.

Please help me encourage you in your area(s) of deepest need. [←Tweet this.]

Take a few minutes to complete this survey, leave a comment in my comment box that you did so, and be entered in to win Ann Voskamp’s Selections from One Thousand Gifts: Finding Joy in What Really Matters. 

One winner will be randomly drawn from all who took the survey and commented. It’s my way of saying thank you for giving me a little of your time.

You have through next Friday, January 23, to complete the survey and be entered for the drawing. Oh, and the survey is completely anonymous; I won’t know who said what, so please be brutally honest. 🙂

Create your free online surveys with SurveyMonkey , the world’s leading questionnaire tool.

Thank you! Feel free to share the survey with anyone who would like a little extra boost of encouragement. 


By His Grace,

Julie Sunne

Hello, I'm Julie, an imperfect wife and mother of four. Life in this broken world is not always easy. Yet, joy can be found in each day through the grace and mercy of the Lord Jesus Christ.

I find it's easy for our day's blessings to get lost in its happenings. But God's "mercies never end" (Lamentations 3:22) and His "grace is sufficient" (2 Corinthians 12:9).

May the posts and pages on this site offer you a measure of peace and encouragement.
