  1. Dawn,
    Thank you…you really have me thinking about the approach I take when approaching others. I don’t want to be haughty or pious, especially when it comes to talking about my Savior. I want to be winsome. As my mom used to say, “You can attract more flies with honey than with vinegar.” It’s true…thank you for giving me something to truly think about today. Great word…good stuff to remember!

  2. Oh Dawn!
    What a wonderful picture of how we should treat others! I have often said that in order to really witness to someone, we have to remember and respect that they believe what they believe just as strongly as we believe what we believe. I love the concept of being winsome and am praying that God helps me to become more winsome in all areas of my life! Thank you so much for sharing!

  3. Dawn,
    I never thought about winsome. It didn’t occur to me that part of being winsome is encouragement. I am an encourager by nature. Always try to let people know how much they mean to me. Send e-cards, snail cards, cook meals & call people. I want to attract people to Christ by being winsome and letting His love flow out like honey!
    Blessings 🙂

  4. Winsome–what a great word to keep in mind, to guide our words and actions. Thank you, Dawn!
