When I joined what was then known as the Christian Den’s Writers group, I was told that being published in The Upper Room was something all devotion writers strive for — not because of the pay ($25.00) but for a much more important and far-reaching reason. 

This little devotion guide that began in the 1930’s now has a worldwide circulation of over 1,000,000 readers. For someone who is used to teaching a group of twenty-five women, it’s hard to imagine that a “mini-lesson” has the possibility of being read by this many people in one day. I pray God will use this small offering to encourage many for His glory. 

One of the most exciting parts of this devotion for me is that it features one of my daughter-in-law’s, Megan, along with her childhood pup. On the day of the devotion (May 5) you’ll be able to log on to The Upper Room’s Web site to not only read the devotion, but to also a picture of Megan with Buddy. I’ll share this link on May 5, but if you’d like to visit their site in the meantime, please click here.

Yes, it may have taken three years from the time I submitted the devotion to publication but if one single mom or dad is encouraged as a result, every day of the wait was worth it. 

Will you join me in praying for those who will be reading this May/June issue?

“So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”
