The Power of Words

the power of words

The Power of Words - The power of words is that they shape our lives, for good and for bad, particularly the lives of children. And the words you write to your sponsored child have this power.

The spirit of a child is like wet cement. It doesn’t take much to make an imprint. And as sponsors the most powerful way we make an impression in the lives of our sponsored children is with the words we choose and the messages we share in our letters.

The children in our programs tell us that what you write matters to them. They tell us about the power of your words.

Think of the impact we can make if we become more intentional about encouraging our sponsored children.

The Power of Words

Words have power. They can destroy and create. Sometimes a single word can change everything.

Do you remember the words and kind acts that encouraged you when you were young? Who was the adult that spoke into your life? Hopefully, he or she spoke words of love and acceptance that encouraged you.

Our words quickly take root in the fertile soil of a child’s spirit. The power of words is that a life can be launched with as little as a single phrase, an uplifting word or an act of kindness. Think of the power we wield and the impact we can make if we become more intentional about encouraging our sponsored children.

The words you write to your sponsored child are, quite simply, life-changing and powerful. It cannot be overstated. The children in our programs are telling us this. What you say in your letters matters!

Our words are often the very things that help create future dreams. And sometimes those dreams are to be just like us.


It doesn’t take much to make an imprint in the spirit of a child. In your next letter, consider the power of your words and choose to make a mark that will last a lifetime. Build your sponsored child up in Jesus' name.
