About the Book

I’ve known Phillip Morrison for four decades. Each encounter I have had with him has left me impressed with his kindness and wisdom. To know that he has collected his thoughts in a book is welcome news. May God bless this work and all who read it.
Max Lucado, Teaching Minister, Oak Hills Church, San Antonio;
Missionary and Christian author.

Phillip Morrison is a wonderful storyteller. I regard him as a wise friend of empathy, compassion, and integrity. Phillip has faced more than his share of life’s struggles with faith and dignity. These qualities come through in each of his regular “Encouraging Words” emails which have attracted me and many other readers across the years.
Now, “Encouraging Words” has become “the book” … a collection of “Phillip’s top hits.” Enjoy reading and finding encouraging words in every chapter.
Lynn Anderson, retired minister, church consultant, and Christian author.

Reading Phillip Morrison’s writing is like a bear hug from dear ol’ Dad. He embraces you with truths that won’t let go. Thank you, Phillip, for gifting us with a lifetime of wisdom we can hold in our hands and refer to over and over again. This book is gift-worthy for anyone.

Author of the multi-award winning book, “God Chose a Woman First.”

I was born at the end of the Great Depression, eight years before the United States became involved in World War II. In our small town, caught between the pain of depression and the horrors of war, almost everybody went to church. Much of the preaching I heard as a small boy was judgmental, harsh, and unforgiving. People were as likely to be scared out of hell as loved into heaven. Although tempted to adopt the pulpit style of older preachers, I soon learned that people were hungry for a more hopeful message. The ministry of Jesus was characterized by the magnetic drawing power of the cross, and his encouragement to “Go, and sin no more” was a welcome message of forgiveness. When my pulpit ministry was curtailed by age and illness, I began the email ministry of encouragement. This book is a compilation of some of those messages. I hope and pray that you will find, in every chapter and every sentence, truly encouraging words.

About the Author

Phillip Morrison was a “circuit rider” preacher in small churches while still in high school. By the time he got to David Lipscomb College, now Lipscomb University, he was preaching every Sunday at a rural congregation. After college, he and Mary Margaret Grounds married and began their ministry at a small, mostly military church in South Carolina, forming a partnership that lasted until her death almost sixty-two years later. Although they served churches of Christ in Detroit, Miami, Washington (Falls Church, Virginia), Memphis, and Nashville, Phillip always considered himself a non-denominational preacher, calling people to Christ rather than a church.
Although encountering multitudes of people with a variety of needs, all had one thing in common: the need for encouragement. Desiring to be a “son of encouragement” like Barnabas (Acts 4:36), Phillip invites you to read this book with encouraging words on every page.
