The value of reflecting on faith as a couple

Ralph and Terry Modica in 2015You share something special with your beloved that’s all too rare. You recognize the value of dialoging with each other on matters of faith. Before you signed up for these Reflections for Couples, how did you do it? Was that enough? Are you talking about faith more than you used to — as a couple? Have your prayer times together become more valuable?

I’d like to know: How have these Reflections for Couples enhanced your relationship with each other? How have they enhanced your relationship with God as a couple? I hope you will comment about this below. Others need to see it. Hey, I need to see it. Your comments will encourage me to continue providing this blog or else the lack of comments will speak loudly that there’s not enough value in keeping these posts coming.

You see, I’m facing a grave decision. I’m going to have to redirect my time into fund raising instead of posting more Reflections for Couples, producing new videos, and providing other services, because last December’s annual fundraiser fell too far short of the goal.

We need to put an end to the monthly shortfall if we’re going keep Good News Ministries going and growing. Each month costs $6000 more than we receive in donations (and believe me, we operate with smaller salaries and fewer expenses than most organizations). It will get us only through August at the current rate of monthly support. Three months from now, we might have to shut down. Heaven forbid!

Those who have already made the commitment of a recurring monthly donation are some of our best champions. Even small monthly donations become helpful when they add up over time. But unless the Lord graces us with full monthly coverage, the mid-year boost we need is $35,000.

Fund raising is very time consuming. To keep these Reflections for Couples coming, please visit gnm.org/donate now.

Reflection Questions:

  1. How has the Lord worked through these Reflections for Couples to bring me and my sweetheart closer to each other and closer to God?
  2. How can we help Good News Ministries in thanksgiving to the Lord for how much Good News Ministries has helped us?
