"Encouragement Gives You the Direction For the Courage to Cope"
She is a Lifetime Encouragement Specialist. She has been
called "Dr. Encouragement." Her personal life experiences
award her a degree surpassing any degree because of the authenticity
with which she lives her life.
Phyllis was raised in Lincoln, Nebraska. Her family consisted
of beloved Mom, Dad, Brothers Jim and Don, dog Tippy, horse Champion,
cats Tuffy and Tiger and lambs Pam and Penny. The value of "trying"
versus "can't" as long as it didn't hurt her or others
was taught by her mother. This began Encouragement Factor, a natural
fit for her. Being the family, neighborhood and school "Encouragement
Cheerleader" as a child, teenager and throughout life had
and is a magnificent blessing for her.
Having four terrific (not perfect) children -- two boys and two
girls -- is another blessing. On October 6, 1975 crisis, trauma
and tragedy occurred. Phyllis' daughter Courtney Brook, then six
months old, died a completely unexpected death. This crisis turned
Phyllis' life upside down and inside out.
Encouragement Factor was, is and will continue to be one of Phyllis'
natural born strengths as God is her solid rock, foundation and
Each person is created with a unique personality. Personalities

of who you are and living a strengthful responsive life one is
Encouraged to live and be alive rather than only exist and survive.

I am most thankful for Phyllis who saved my life, after both
my grandparents died. I felt lost and unneeded, for they had
depended on me for many years as their caregiver. I though to
be needed in life was the answer. It wasn't. To be appropriately
needed is only one part of living life. Phyllis guides me in
the direction of living life through her Encouragement. I received
the "Gem of Encouragement That Begins to Glow Within My
Soul" through the journey of my Personality Profile. Phyllis
has and does continue to counsel and coach me.
I am able to understand who I was and better understand through
the Personality Profile the truth of who I am today. It is a
blessing to love myself appropriately. The gentle, consistent
guidance of Phyllis' Encouragement helps me, to live out of
my strengths instead of my weaknesses is an ongoing process
of the Personality Profile. To "uncover and discover the
true treasure of ME" gives me "Winds of Courage"
through the breeze of her glowing, knowing, "Golden Encouragement."
This lifts me to a place where I want to live and appreciate
life with all its circumstances and challenges. Through Phyllis'
Encouragement why don't you learn to live life through the discover
of the "True View of You." The personality Profile
enlivens and enriches you to love thyself as I am presently
Phyllis, thank you so much for all of your help and support
over the past year. You have been invaluable in providing a
much needed resource at a time of such need and confusion during
this time in my life. I have kept a file folder in my file cabinet
entitled "Comfort" which contains the handouts from
the support group you held at Encouragement Factor. Just knowing
it's there makes me feel better! At a time when I needed support
you filled a much needed void which is lacking from the divorce
arena. You have brought kindness, understanding and acceptance
into my life. Both you and Lorene have life experiences,, respect
and compassion which you bring to all those lives you touch.
I hope for you continued success in the Encouragement Factor
resource. Every community would benefit from the unique gift
of love, understanding and support you provide for those in
need. We are truly blessed to have you here in Fallbrook. I
am much stronger now, in part to your help and I am forever
grateful. Respectfully Yours,
Phyllis Sweeney was and has been a great help to me after the
death of my husband of 40 years. She reached out to me and everyone
in the support group. She always had an open ear or a shoulder
to cry on. She is a very optimistic person and full of life.
I am so thankful for Phyllis and the Encouragement Factor.
