Author Carol Ann Mc Giffin encourages others to minister through note writing

In today’s technology-driven world, people often communicate through text messaging, instant messaging and emails – the handwritten note is quickly becoming a thing of the past. In her new book “Changing Lives One Note at a Time: The Ministry of Note Writing” (published by Inspiring Voices), Carol Ann Mc Giffin encourages readers to pick up the pen and begin writing notes once more.

“Changing Lives One Note at a Time” delivers the inspiration and guidance needed to begin writing notes as a form of encouragement. Readers will come away with the realization that they can write a note to encourage and refresh the body of Christ. Through writing, people will see the power an encouraging note has in another’s life, and his/her own heart will also be refreshed.

“My husband, Jerry, suggested the idea,” Mc Giffin says. “He witnessed firsthand the effect an encouraging note had on others from comments people made to him who received a note from me.” With “Changing Lives One Note at a Time”, she hopes others will see the difference a note can make in another’s life, and how their own hearts will be refreshed by sharing God’s love with others.

An excerpt from the preface of “With Changing Lives One Note at a Time”:

There’s just something special about a hand-written note that expresses God’s love and directs your focus to His care over you. My pastor, Michael Trammell, put it this way, “A note lifts spirits and edifies the body of Christ.”

Encouraging through note writing is a ministry … a ministry that can change a life. I invite you to take a closer look and discover within yourself the means to encourage by writing a note.

“People like to help others,” tells Mc Giffin. “Once readers understand how refreshing and needed a note writing ministry is they will want to become ‘NOTE’worthy for God.”
