“FAITH and DEVOTION DAILY” LAUNCHED

Newspaper

Growing stronger, wiser, and better through faith each and every day! “…Just as it is written: The righteous will live by faith.” Romans 1:17 

FAITH and DEVOTION DAILY is out!

We are moving higher in the LORD with this month’s launch of the new online, faith-based publication, FAITH and DEVOTION DAILY!

FAITH and DEVOTION DAILY is dedicated to helping you grow in relationship with God through inspiration, education, and motivation. It employs the incredible leverage of social media, and web 2.0 technologies to “tell the story” and reach people of faith around the world. Designed to help strengthen faith through daily doses of the Word and inspirational stories, it draws on a broad range of faith based media to inspire and grow your relationship with God! 

FAITH and DEVOTION DAILY is filled with devotionals, inspiring stories of faith, and faith-filled articles, opinion pieces, blog posts, photos, and videos. It is a useful, daily companion for quiet time, meditation and reflection on the Word. And it sheds new light on current events and developments from a faith perspective!

FAITH and DEVOTION DAILY brings you the latest news and views affecting people of faith, while focusing on examples of a healthy Christian lifestyle. Recent articles included the reaction of people of faith to the school shooting in Newtown, CT, as well as, an appreciation of the real meaning of Christmas!

This month also witnessed the launch of SOCIAL MEDIA and MINISTRY NEWS. Looking for an effective way to provide regular updates to the key topics and concepts presented in my recent book SOCIAL MEDIA and MINISTRY, I hit upon the idea of publishing an online daily newspaper to bring you the latest, most up-to-date information, developments, and opinions in the fields of social media, faith and technology from a wide variety of leading online sources.  

SOCIAL MEDIA and MINISTRY NEWS is sort of like SOCIAL MEDIA and MINISTRY LIVE/ Breaking News! LOL! It provides further insights, and additional “bonus” material to those who purchased the book, SOCIAL MEDIA and MINISTRY. I hope you find it informative and helpful.

Finally, a reminder that 2012 is not over yet! You still have time to accomplish and achieve more of your goals and dreams this year. In Matthew 19:26 Jesus said, with man it is impossible, but with God all things are possible! God is not finished with you yet! Continue to pursue you dreams!

What remaining goals for 2012 are you still working on?

Until next time, remember, you can do all things thru Christ Jesus!

Stay Blessed,

Kenneth Lillard
