Hi my friend, Happy Monday!

Have you ever noticed how your mood can affect those around you? I sure have! When I’m in a bad mood at home, it seems to affect everyone around me.

I once learned to leave a place better or cleaner than when I arrived, and I try to apply this to my attitude too. I try to leave each place I visit a little brighter and more positive than when I arrived. Though I admit, it doesn't always happen!

Now, I'd love for you to watch this week’s devotion, then take time with God to reflect on the message you heard.

Once you watch today's devotion, I'd love to hear your thoughts. Please share in the comments below or send me a message at hello@knotsofgrace.com. Your insights mean a lot to me, and I'd love to hear from you.

Wishing you a wonderful week ahead!


P.S. To help keep the inspiration alive, I shared the stunning Through God's Eyes Bookmark Rosary and the protective St. Benedict Medal Door Hanger / Zipper Pull in the video that serves as a great reminder to be encouraged by God's overwhelming desire to protect and help you feel and share joy each day.


Encouragement Is Contagious

Bright eyes cheer the heart; good news strengthens the bones. - Proverbs 15:30

A woman's attitude is contagious. If she is optimistic and upbeat, her family will tend to feel similar emotions. But if a mother or sister or daughter tails prey to pessimism and doubt, the family suffers right along with her.

Wise women like you understand the power of encouragement. Marie T. Freeman said, "Encouragement starts at home, but it should never end there.”

And Nicole Johnson observed, "Encouragement is to a friendship what confetti is to a party."

So if you'd like to make your corner of the world a happier, healthier place, spread encouragement wherever you go. You'll be amazed at how fast it can spread.

"If someone listens or stretches out a hand or whispers a word of encouragement or attempts to understand a lonely person, extraordinary things begin to happen." - Loretta Girzartis

 Mary, Mother of God, pray for us!
