From the Editor
For 70 years Guideposts magazine has published true, compelling stories of hope and inspiration by people from all walks of life, people just like you who overcome the challenges of everyday living with faith in themselves and faith in God. Every monthly issue is packed with personal, uplifting accounts by folks who live life to the fullest, even in the face of the most difficult problems. Features like What Prayer Can Do and Pass It On help you build closer, more loving relationships, find greater meaning in your work, and deepen and share your faith. Our popular Mysterious Ways department will send a shiver down your spine and put a tear in your eye. The Up Side features quotes that motivate and inspire, words that power you through your day.
Founded by Norman Vincent Peale, author of the Power of Positive Thinking, and his wife, Ruth, as an interfaith, non-denominational, reader-driven publication, Guideposts has helped millions of people experience life with joy, optimism, self-confidence and faith through first-person stories of hope and inspiration.
It may not make the short list of spiritual virtues, yet spiritual people often exhibit a delightful sense of humor.
Sometimes it pays to trust a stranger–or in this case, it cost nothing.
Gratitude for our readers–ambassadors of hope and inspiration
