Testimonials

I can't tell you how much I appreciate and enjoy getting the GoodNews Network newsletter each Wednesday. As a chaplain at a life care retirement community, I lead a discussion group on current news with seniors each week. They are overloaded with the bad news, and even though we don't want to have our heads in the sand, we need to hear some good news. So thanks a million! Dick Lewallen, Delray Beach, Florida
