Dear Friend,

I hope you’re doing well. Welcome to the February newsletter. In addition to the featured content mentioned below, there are two main items that I’d like to highlight this month:

  1. Inspiring Advertising. I’ve long had an interest in inspiring and unique advertising, and posted noteworthy ads to my site. This month I’ve created a page dedicated to commercials that inspire.
  2. SSL Encryption. As of this month the website now has SSL encryption. That means your connection to the site is verified and secure.
  3. Iowa Public Radio. We now support Iowa Public Radio with a sustaining gift and for IPR Membercard holders, we have special offers and discounts. Find out more.

Personal Update

My Personal Update for February is now available. If we’re not already connected on Facebook, I invite you to Like my page and also visit my website.


Over the past couple of weeks since the January newsletter, there’s been some great new content added to the website. Here are a few featured posts that I think have broad appeal:

Heart Songs

This month’s Heart Songs selection is “What Do You Love” (featuring Jacob Banks) by Seeb. A music video version is below. Note: There may be advertising preceding the videos that’s outside my control — it’s determined by YouTube and the user who uploaded the videos. Click the small red ‘x’ at the top right of any ads to close them.

Thanks. I want to thank the global team of volunteers, contributors, and workers “behind the scenes” who help make all this possible. I’m very grateful to the many people who continue to uphold and advance the mission of Resources for Life. Thanks again for your support. Please let me know if there is any way that Resources for Life can serve you better.
