"A candle loses nothing of its light by lighting another candle."
- Father James Keller

Words are very powerful. Watch the 2 minute video below and think about this idea.

Words have the power to motivate, inspire, challenge, and encourage. Of course, they can have the opposite effect as well.

I challenge you today to measure your words - both to others and to yourself. Speak a word today that will encourage and uplift!

Go..do it!

I saw your blog post on Michael Hyatt this morning and decided to visit your new blog. It's a great beginning. I put the same WORDS video you have up on my blog a few weeks ago.

I started using POSTEROUS.com for my blogs 18 months ago. It's FREE and GREAT and I thought I would pass it on to you. It has much more functionality than BLOGGER. You can have have a PUBLIC or password protected site.

Jim Rohn says “Success is not something we pursue, it something we attract by the person we become”. Your obviously doing that as a teacher and you’ll do the same with your new blog if you stick to it.

Read Seth’s Godin’s other book, “The Dip”. It’s GREAT as well.

Happy day,

Hello, Jason! I read your comment today on Mike Hyatt's blog, and I decided to check yours out. I, too, am a newbie blogger and have stepped out of my comfort zone. I'm getting the hang of it now, but it was certainly a challenge in the beginning. I loved your post on your mother. And your Blog is super! Congrats!

Blessings to you in your writing endeavors!

Cynthia, thanks for the encouragement. My mother is very special!
