Compassion and Connection: Jody Noland

Why We Write Letters

In a world filled with digital communication and fleeting interactions, the power of genuine connection often gets lost in the shuffle. That’s why I sat down with Jody Noland, Author, Speaker, and founder of, for a heartfelt conversation about the importance of compassion, connection, and the timeless art of handwritten letters.

Jody Noland is a passionate advocate for fostering meaningful connections through the written word. With her website,, she encourages people to express their deepest thoughts and emotions to their loved ones through handwritten letters—a practice that she believes can deepen relationships and leave a lasting impact.

Handwritten Letters

During our conversation, Jody shared insights into why handwritten letters hold such significance in today’s fast-paced world. She emphasized the unique power of a handwritten note to convey sincerity, warmth, and authenticity, unlike any digital message could ever achieve. In a world inundated with texts, emails, and social media posts, taking the time to sit down and pen a heartfelt letter can make all the difference in nurturing genuine connections.

We also delved into the importance of compassion in our daily lives. Jody spoke passionately about the need for empathy, kindness, and understanding, especially in times of hardship or struggle. She highlighted the profound impact that a compassionate gesture—a listening ear, a supportive word, or a handwritten letter—can have on someone’s well-being.

Throughout our conversation, Jody and I exchanged stories and anecdotes about the transformative power of compassion and connection. We discussed the joy of receiving a heartfelt letter in the mail, the comfort of knowing that someone cares enough to reach out in a personal way, and the profound sense of connection that comes from sharing our thoughts and feelings with others.

As we wrapped up our conversation, Jody offered some practical tips for incorporating handwritten letters into our lives. She encouraged viewers to set aside dedicated time each week to write to loved ones, to express gratitude, offer encouragement, or simply share a moment of connection. Whether it’s a letter to a parent, a friend, or a partner, the act of putting pen to paper and expressing our thoughts in a tangible way can foster deep and meaningful connections.

Our conversation underscored the importance of compassion, connection, and the power of handwritten letters in nurturing relationships and fostering genuine human connection.
