“Rain and sun are to the flower as praise and encouragement are to the human spirit.”

As a former science teacher, I am fascinated by the process of photosynthesis – that plants can use sunlight to make their own food seems nothing short of a miracle.

Man—and virtually all animals—eat these plants as our way of sustaining life. Yet we are feeding only the body portion of ourselves – leaving our souls and spirits a bit empty.


How can you feed others the important nutrient of praise and acknowledgement, and surround yourself with others who will offer it to you in return?
