Encourage, Inspire, and Love On Others Through Text

Looking for a way to connect with, encourage, inspire, and love on others? Text them!

In less time than it takes to brew a cup of coffee or steep a cup of tea, you can:

  • brighten someone’s day
  • spread a little hope
  • encourage a friend or loved one
  • let a neighbor know they’re being prayed for
  • offer a laugh
  • lift someone’s spirit
  • remind someone they’re thought of, cared for, and loved
  • connect with others


Just as “A little yeast will make all the dough rise.” Galatians 5:9 GNT, a little encouragement can make a powerful difference on a difficult day.


As you #ConnectByText, you’ll be living out a baker’s dozen of biblical “one anothers”:

 Encourage one another daily … Hebrews 3:13



  1. Keep it short. Those who are hurting can have trouble processing information, but a short message can be easily digested.
  2. Don’t expect a response. Those who are struggling might not have the energy to respond, but that doesn’t mean your text didn’t mean the world to them.
  3. Write from your heart. You don’t have to craft the perfect text, just be honest and share a little love.
