Value your readers!

In my previous blog post I wrote about my different kind of give-away: 'It is my greatest joy to see the messages God gave me, touch people's lives. If it helps them to grow in their faith, if they are encouraged and inspired... I am happy.'

Whether you are a blogger, writer or author... you have a story to tell and if what you write touches a person's heart... you did not write in vain.

In this picture I am giving a copy of my latest book In My Name to Zhenya Venidyktova. She is one of my lovely interpreters when visiting Ukraine. She speaks Russian and English fluently and it is such a joy to hang out with her. Oh, how we love to minister together to those who are hurt and in need of a touch of God.

I wish I could visit Ukraine more often and hang out with people like Zhenya.... talking about God, books, history and the future of our nations. She finished reading In My name and she wrote me a note:

"Your latest book gives a fresh look at one of the 10 commandments, not to use the Lord's Name in vain. I liked that it shows us how to really use the Lord's Name for His glory, how we can do what the Holy Spirit tells us to do. I also liked the examples from your life & ministry. It helps me to hear the Holy Spirit & to obey Him."

I thought I 'd honor her, one of my many readers, with this blog post because I truly value her!

Do you have precious comments from readers that you would like to share?

PS: If you haven't done so already, you can order the e-book on Amazon for just 2.99.

I am looking forward to your comments!


  1. "...and the future of our nations."

    I wonder what the future holds. Singing and dancing. Lots of it. :) I am hopeful.

    I keep inspiring comments. I have for years. They are good to look back on and remember.


    1. Good to keep inspiring comments Sandi, I do so as well... I have a folder with what I call 'fan mail':)

  2. Marja: " you did not write in vain." I am finding this out. A recent post of mine touched hearts in ways I didn't expect. I used that post on my blog, in a private Face Book group, and it will appear soon in a column I write. I have already received warm comments about my thoughts on the scripture verse. Peace and Blessings.

    1. Fantastic when that happens Cecelia. In that sense we never write in vain when we publish our thoughts. There is always someone reading along!


Thanks for your visit, it is my hope and prayer that this post was an encouragement to you! Feel free to leave a comment.
