our greatest strength

(AMY ETRA)Every winter, I serve as a judge for the National Magazine Awards. It’s an opportunity to study the amazing work that magazines from all over the country are doing. (Don’t let anyone tell you the web is killing print.) Of course, I can’t help but compare the work I judge with what we do here at Guideposts. The conclusion I’ve come to is that there is nothing else like Guideposts and its sister publications, in print or online.Why? Variety. Even the best magazines hew to a fairly narrow focus—politics, entertainment, sports, health, lifestyle, fashion. But when I open an issue of Guideposts, I am met with a profusion of human experience, with inspiring storytellers of incredible diversity. What unifies the content is one core belief: Faith helps people everywhere…

(DAN MACMEDAN/CONTOUR BY GETTY IMAGES)“I allowed myself to be bullied because I was scared…. I was bullied until I prevented a new student from being bullied.

someone cares

SHARING OF THE GREENMy late friend Joan wasn’t much of a gardener. She used to say that not only weren’t her thumbs green but none of her other fingers were, either! Despite that (or maybe because of it), every March she liked to give someone a small potted shamrock plant. Sometimes the recipient was a teacher who’d done something special for Joan’s daughter, who struggled with learning disabilities. Other times, it might be a lonely resident in a nursing home. One March, when I was going through a difficult divorce, it was me. That plant is now huge and thriving.Tradition has it that Saint Patrick used the shamrock’s three leaves to symbolize the Holy Trinity as he brought Christianity to the Irish. Though Joan liked that story, she had a…

DARK. COLD. AND QUIET.The quiet was a huge relief. Quiet meant the snow had stopped. It had been snowing when I went to sleep.I was camped beside an alpine lake near the Continental Divide in the Wind River Range of the Rocky Mountains. I was alone. The nearest road was nine and a half miles away. I looked at my watch. It was close to midnight.Maybe it was the quiet that woke me. Snow falling on a tent makes a sound somewhere between a sigh and a rattle, depending on wind and the amount of snow. There was light but persistent tapping when I went to bed. I fell asleep hoping it was just a flurry.I’d hiked here the day before from a trailhead above Wyoming’s Green River Valley, south…
