Continuing to count my blessings for 2012.

I firmly believe that we all need encouragement on our journey for Jesus.  So often people think they are alone or maybe just need another outlook on a situation.  I was blessed to receive the Eternal Encouragement magazine.  This magazine was full of stories that touched me.  An encouragement in the area of hospitality, an encouragement for homeschooling and homemaking and so much more.  Eternal Encouragement has a beautiful ministry, take a moment to check it out.

Disclaimer: I received this magazine free of charge for the intent of review. Subscriptions are available printed and digital and any subscription receives the NEW EE Etc. Web Magazine that is published 8 times a year. This has full magazine articles that are only available to Eternal Encouragement Subscribers via a new online magazine website.

Sweet Blessings~
