Makes ev­ery day brighter

In­spires hope

Shifts my fo­cus

“Each win­ter, cloudy skies and cold tem­per­a­tures al­ways suc­ceed in steal­ing my joy. But this year, read­ing your de­vo­tional each day, see­ing the vi­brant pho­tos and say­ing the lov­ing words has put color back into my life. Thank you for chas­ing away the gray and help­ing me to feel God’s ra­di­ant joy!” —Ju­lianne Men­dez, Reno, NV “I have a friend who is strug­gling af­ter leav­ing an abu­sive re­la­tion­ship and it broke my heart that I didn’t know how to help her. But af­ter I read the pow­er­ful story in your last is­sue about the woman who over­came abuse, I got my friend a copy. She loved the gift and it was a great way to sup­port her and say, ‘I love you, and God loves you too.’”

—Jamie Du, Mi­ami “I re­cently broke my hip and the re­cov­ery has taken much longer than ex­pected, so Kristin Chenoweth’s story of turn­ing to God in the midst of her phys­i­cal pain felt like it was writ­ten just for me! Now in­stead of fo­cus­ing on the things I can’t do, I’m fo­cus­ing on all the things I can do through Christ. Thank you!”

—Alex Smith, Boise, ID

In­tro­duces new tra­di­tions

“As some­one who was raised in an Evan­gel­i­cal church, I love learn­ing about tra­di­tions that are out­side my de­nom­i­na­tion. I’ve never cel­e­brated Lent be­fore, but loved the match­stick cross craft in your last is­sue. It’s so beau­ti­ful to find a pub­li­ca­tion that cel­e­brates that we’re all the Body of Christ with many ways we can ex­press our love for the Lord.”

—Diane New­ton, Hous­ton, TX
