Ways to Encourage #6 - Quality Time

One of the best ways to encourage family and friends is by spending quality time with them. Here are a few ideas to try out:

1.  Watch a good movie together, and discuss it at the end.

2.  Pray together.

3.  Turn off the TV and the computer and do one of the following:
  • Sit around the table at dinner time and talk and laugh together. 
  • Go out to eat, or just go out for dessert.
  • Go shopping together and pay for something your friend or family member desires.
  • Go to a coffee shop and have conversation over a cup of coffee, or tea, or hot chocolate. 
  • Go bowling, play miniature golf, or watch a ballgame together.
4.  You can also go check out a previous post I made about: INEXPENSIVE WAYS TO SPEND TIME WITH YOUR FAMILY

It is important to understand, what one person considers good quality time may differ from someone else. So, if you are wanting to encourage in this way, find out what others consider to be quality time. Bring up several ideas to the one(s) you are wanting to spend time with, and ASK THEM what they would like to do. Then, go do it!

Have fun with encouragement!
