How We Help

Guideposts is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing hope and inspiration to millions of people around the world. Through our uplifting magazines, books, websites, a prayer community and outreach programs, together, with your help, Guideposts helps people deepen their faith and inspires them to reach their true potential.

Changing Lives

Guideposts reaches millions of people, inspiring them to believe that anything is possible with hope, faith and prayer. This is accomplished through our many outreach programs that allow us to connect with people and help sustain them in times of spiritual need. The power of faith in action helps transform the lives of people who call on us for help in creating joy out of deep sadness, courage out of fear and restoring hope from the depths of despair.

Engaging in Prayer

Each year millions of requests for prayer are lifted up to God, bringing people together who are seeking comfort in their faith.

Offering Encouragement

The spiritual needs of those who serve are met with the message of faith, encouragement and hope.

Sharing Comfort and Joy

Comfort Kits are provided free of charge to brighten the lives of children who are hospitalized or undergoing medical treatment.

Giving Hope

Guideposts’ work is a calling to make humanity more hopeful and caring. We seek to build and support communities that lift up individuals at their most vulnerable moments and sustain them during their daily struggles. We inspire through storytelling and provide a supportive environment for individuals to share their journeys of spiritual discovery and healing. Lives are changed for the better, hope replaces despair and fellowship softens the pain of grief and loneliness for the many we are called to serve together.

Let us seek to “encourage one another and build one another up" (1 Thessalonians 5:11).
