I've blogged before about interesting feedback we receive in the mail and by e-mail, and now I thought I'd start a regular schedule of posting it. So from now on, you can look forward to Feedback Fridays!
Today's feedback came from a 28-year-old woman in prison. Her letter says, "I made some bad choices when I was younger and am paying for them now. I was saved and baptized in December 2008...since then I have walked every day with God. I have read one of the three Heartsong books that I found in the jail library.... If it hadn't been for my Bible and books like these I would have gone crazy being away from my husband and our children." She goes on to give her home address so that we can send her information about becoming a Heartsong member when she is released soon! She ends her letter with a request that we pray for her and the other ladies she is with. "Please put me and all the ladies in here in your thoughts and prayers. There are several of the girls here that are younger than I am and have more serious charges. I have talked to them all, trying to win souls to the Lord, but they refuse to hear it."
What a great reminder that those in prison need our prayer. And how wonderful to know that our books helped change this young woman's life, so much so that she's even trying to win others to the Lord.
I don't know about you, but I sure find mail like this encouraging. I never get tired of being reminded that the books we produce at Barbour/Heartsong do truly help change people's lives. They are not just meaningless stories, they help spread the word of God and the Truth of Jesus, so that people can live with purpose and hope.
