by | Dec 25, 2016 | Holidays | 1 comment


We’d like to wish a very Merry Christmas to all of our Gospel Blog readers! May you feel Christ’s presence as you gather in your branches and missions, as you spend time with family and friends, and as you reflect on the blessings of 2016.

We also recognize that many of you are in the midst of major, life-changing trials, disappointments, and struggles that occured this past year. If that’s the case, then please know that our prayers are with you and that Jesus will never leave you alone. 

Meet the Columnists for 2017!

Our little Christmas message features all of the columnists that you can expect to hear from in 2017. Some are familiar faces who have been with the Gospel Blog since day one. Some haven’t even written their first official posts yet.

Meet our lineup (starting from top left):

  • Sister Michelle Watson
  • Brother Jerry Valenti
  • Sister Natalie Shawver
  • Brother Rich Nath
  • Sister Stefanie Callens
  • Brother P. (our mystery man!)
  • Sister Colleen Moore
  • Sister Linda Scolaro
  • Brother Jordan Champine
  • Sister Zarella Mosqueda
  • Brother Benjamin Hemmings
  • Sister Ruth Gehly
  • Brother Chris Gehly

Of course, you’ll also read articles written by brothers and sisters who aren’t on our roster of regulars, but these are the voices that you will be hearing from most often after the New Year. We are so excited for what God has in store for us all.

It also goes without saying that you — yes, YOU — have an open invitation to contribute to the Gospel Blog, especially if you’d like to share an experience or testimony for Miracle Monday. Click here for our submission form where you can send us your stories.

We’d like to sign off by wishing you a very merry Christmas and a happy — and blessed — New Year!

This article has undergone ministry review and approval.
