The Guideposts editor-in-chief shares his enthusiasm about the magazine for the holidays.
I'll have to keep this blog entry short because I'm busy in Florida spending the weekend with a terrific group of GUIDEPOSTS subscribers and supporters. I've met some great people. They're longtime readers; most of them originally received GUIDEPOSTS as a gift and today they all give the magazine (and Daily Guideposts) as gifts. We've also had some great speakers, like Robert Schuller.
Every time I meet readers I'm always amazed at how enthusiastic you are about the magazine. You are the original recyclers—you never throw your GUIDEPOSTS out. You pass it on, giving it to neighbors and friends, or leaving your copy in places like health clubs, beauty salons and doctors' offices.
So maybe this is as good a time as any to remind you to start your gift subscriptions. Given the difficult times we're going through, I can't imagine a more meaningful gift. And it is through your subscriptions and gifts that we can distribute millions of GUIDEPOSTS for free, including 500,000 a year to the military, especially military hospitals.
GUIDEPOSTS—a great way to recycle your faith.
P.S. I'd love to meet you in person too. I'll be at Silver Dollar City in Branson, Missouri December 5 and 6 as part of a GUIDEPOSTS Christmas story-telling event.
I'll be sharing some of my favorite GUIDEPOSTS holiday stories as well as giving you readers a chance to ask questions and tell your own stories, have a picture taken and generally get to know one another better. And for you knitters and crocheters we'll have some fun workshops as part of our Knit for Kids sweater projects. So come by. I'm looking forward to meeting you.
