The Power of Encouragement
Encouragement can change a situation or an entire day. And this week’s guest on “COFFEE with Kim” is convinced it even has the power to change a life. At age 12, a brief conversation with a teacher resulted in Sandra Aldrich, child of Appalachia, becoming the first woman in her extended family to gain a degree beyond high school. An inspirational speaker and award-winning author, Sandra’s career includes 15 years as a public school teacher, member of the grief counseling team for a funeral home chain, and 9 years in Christian ministry. She has great riches to share with us about how to encourage others and ourselves…even when life delivers deep disappointments or grief.
