Looking for something to inspire and bless your loved ones over Thanksgiving or in the coming year? Why not consider making them a "Leaves of Blessing" gift jar? This is a jar filled with 52+ Bible promises and special quotations from Inspiration - enough to last the whole year if they open 1 per week. Ellen White tells us, “Grasp His promises as LEAVES from the Tree of Life” (Ministry of Healing, p. 65). His promises are our very life! That’s why we need to cling tightly to these promises, especially in times like these! And what better way than giving a gift that keeps on giving.
The traditional North American Thanksgiving may be a joyful family event, but often it's not one of the healthiest times of the year for our bodies. In this short but inspiring article, Mark Finley shares some helpful and healthy tips to enjoy the holiday but also stay healthy. In fact, these tips could be applied every day of the year.
Children, youth, and adults all desperately need to know that Someone loves them and will never leave them in this turbulent time! However, He warned us that prior to His coming, “most people’s love will grow cold.” We see that this prophecy is being fulfilled now! Families are splintering under strain and stress, communities are polarizing, and in our preoccupation to survive these times, we often become too rushed for the One who loves us the most--God. Yet, nearly two thousand years ago, Jesus prescribed a remedy for “love grown cold” in His message to Laodicea, and it has special relevance right now! His message in Revelation 3:14-22 is His last love letter to His people of all ages before He returns. (This is a leadership tool for multi-generation revival!)

The messages were originally prepared in 1988 by requests of the General Conference for use by lay-evangelists. Although this booklet is out of print now, this material, based on the Spirit of Prophecy and writings of Ellen White, we believe is timeless.
