You can rise above almost any obstacle if you’re willing to work hard and believe that you can do it...ordinary people can do extraordinary things.

Now that the Olympics are over (well, almost—congrats, Team U.S.A.), Curiosity has landed on Mars (congrats, JPL, especially the engineer with the Mohawk and the totally positive guy who started celebrating a second before everyone else, and the political conventions haven’t started yet (God save us), I can finally ask you: What did you think of the first issue of Mysterious Ways magazine?
I’ve been telling you about this exciting new publication that grew out of the famous column in Guideposts magazine and out of the popular Mysterious Ways newsletter and podcasts. So now the first issue is out the door and on its way (we celebrated only a little less jubilantly than the scientists in the JPL control room and the U.S. women’s soccer ream). And all joking aside, I think it’s one of the very best projects I have ever been involved with.
But what I really want to know is what you thought. Were you moved and inspired? Did you think about all the wonderful and unexpected ways a hidden hand touches your life? What were your favorite stories? What did you think of the design and graphic look? Will you order a subscription for yourself or a friend or family member?
Most of all, did Mysterious Ways put a shiver down your spine and a tear in your eye?
To order a free issue, click here then let me know what you think. We’re working on the second issue right now and you can certainly help us out by giving us your response. Please post your comments below. Thanks and have a great week. I hope something mysterious and wonderful comes your way...
