Happy Thanksgiving! I thank God for you who have allowed me to share your letters over the past few years of ministry, so we can be a blessing together as a testimony of God’s great love and grace.
“Every time I think of you, I give thanks to my God. And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.” 1
All Thanks to God…
“My name is Ethan, and I am from a small city in north Alabama.
Happy Labor Day! If you are suffering under a load of religious responsibilities laid on you by others or condemnation, know that Jesus took all our sins upon Himself, so we could rest from this burden. He said,
"Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” 1
An Uplifting Response...
It’s amazing to read the words of Antonia, who wrote:
Happy Independence Day! I think of that day in May 1975, when I think of independence; that day when Christ came into my heart, freeing me from a life of guilt and shame.
“For God says, ‘At just the right time, I heard you. On the day of salvation, I helped you.’ Indeed, the ‘right time’ is now. Today is the day of salvation.” 1
A Heartfelt Response...
Jill wrote, “I am healed of the wounds that your crimes inflicted on my psyche.”
Happy Mother’s Day! It’s amazing how thousands of people come and go from the site surprised at how God could save and forgive such a one as I in Christ, even though His Word clearly states:
“God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise… As a result, no one can ever boast in the presence of God… Christ made us right with God; he made us pure and holy, and he freed us from sin.” 1
Dealing with Regrets…
Here are a few of the wonderful praise reports received recently:

God loves you! We’re hearing from those around the world who are receiving the revelation of God’s love for healing. Won’t you receive His love today as you spend time on the site being encouraged to “…grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ”? 1
“Like newborn babies, you must crave pure spiritual milk so that you will grow into a full experience of salvation. Cry out for this nourishment, now that you have had a taste of the Lord’s kindness.” 2
Another Wonderful Response…
Delinda writes from Tennessee, saying, “For some reason you walked into my mind tonight, so I decided to write you.
Happy New Year! Oh how I pray that each of us will surrender to God’s grace throughout the year to receive the blessing that flows from His throne to our hearts. Being made right in God’s sight through Christ, we have peace with Him! Why?
“Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory.” 1
A Precious Praise Response…
What a blessing it was to receive this letter from Jillian in New York, who wrote,”
Happy Mother’s Day! I’m trusting by now that parts of our world have opened back up after the virus; “a tiny disease-causing agent”, although devastating to many. In light of the Gospel, Jesus said:
“My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” 1
A Rocky Response…
Aaron wrote: “I received your letter. Thank you for taking the time to reply. I also looked at the information you sent. It truly meant a lot.
Welcome! I quote John 3:16 often, where Jesus tells us how much God loves the world, but how about verse 17, where He tells us that he didn’t come to judge us. If anyone deserves His judgment, it is me, but listen to His words.
“For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” 1
So let us praise the Lord that he gave us this wonderful salvation, taking our judgment upon Himself. Trish writes,
Happy New Year! It takes 20/20 vision to be happy! The wisest man ever, other than Jesus Christ, King Solomon wrote: “Where there is no vision [redemptive revelation of God], the people perish: but he that keepeth the law [walks in love], happy is he.” 1
“In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him.” 2
A Judge Responds…
“Having read your testimony, I wanted to write to you. It feels a bit strange to address, in person, someone who is a living (though notorious) historical figure. At age 61, I’m old enough to remember your crimes, which horrified me than and still do today. Even given the many factors which caused you to act the way that you did, your actions are still very difficult to understand.
Welcome! The memories still haunt us from August ’69, but thankfully, our loving and merciful heavenly Father comforts us through faith in His great grace.
“Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” 1
A Gracious Response…
“I recently came across a video on YouTube about the Manson murders, which I’ve always known about.”
