Beliefnet
A Touch of Encouragement

A Small Gift from ATOE.jpgHappy December, dear Friends!
If your month is anything like mine, it’s busy, busy, busy. The economic crisis has challenged us all to downsize and re-think gift-giving, which has been a good thing, I think. It forces me to be more creative and more personal. Instead of the shiny store-bought presents for family and friends, we are making a gift book for everyone on our list this year. (Oops, I think I just gave away the surprise!). Oh, well, I won’t mention what the book is about, okay?


And we have a little holiday surprise for you, too. We’ll be sending you some extra holiday videos between now and New Year’s. Most of them are responses to some of the most powerful comments we’ve received from you in the last few weeks. I hope you are blessed by them and maybe even inspired to pass them along, just in case you know someone else who could use a touch of encouragement this season.
It was just a year ago that A Touch of Encouragement premiered on Beliefnet.com. Thanks to you, it has become the #1 video destination on Beliefnet and has continued to grow and grow. Sharing my stories of faith and inspiration with you has been a deeply humbling privilege and every day I have been blessed by your own stories, your prayers, your faith, and your courage. Truly our new website family has been God’s gift to me in 2008.
Sending along warm wishes for a blessed Christmas season!
Love to all,
Martha
