Majesty in Motion: Creating an Encouragement Culture in all your Relationships

Encouragement means far more than feeling good. It is more than the exchange of superficial greetings that make someone feel good for a moment. Such action does nothing to address that need deep inside your heart that cripples your capacity to really live, create and make a lasting impact on the lives of others.

Encouragement is the result of a dynamic connection and intimate union of your heart with the heart of God. That act of truly encouraging another person flows out of your growing intimacy with the heart of God. To be encouraged is to experience the transformative power of God which gives you the courage to be and to act according to God’s eternal purpose for your life.

The Bible defines amazing characteristics of encouragement that are the basis for this book and that are the three life principles by which you can live a deeply fulfilling life in community. These are principles by which you can help transform those around you – your spouse, family, fellow worker, neighbor, and those in your local church.
