    I enjoy the devotionals that Roy has written. It uplifts me spiritually and fills me with joy. The card offer would be a great blessing as I try to write encouraging words to my family in Texas on a regular basis.

    there is no form and the link doesn’t work?????

      Thanks for writing in Melissa! I’m sorry that you’re having problems with the link. It appears to be working fine on this side, so it may have to do with a security setting on your computer? Please try again, and let me know if you continue to have an issue. I’ll email you privately if the problem continues.

    Roy, whether through email, books, cards, blog, gift ware, or in person, I love to hear the heart of God whispered into my spirit through the words He breathes and blesses through you. “Only God can (does)…” Thanks for being in tune.

      Oh how I thank God for men and women of the faith! Your words encourage, convict, and bless my inner man every day. May God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ continue to use your cards, devotionals, and quotes in our Bible studies to draw believers to Himself, and awaken the lost to His great love and sacrifice made for them. In Jesus’name I pray.

    Roy – the Gifts you are blessed with bring such joy and peace and comfort to so many… thank you for being an awesome “man of God”. I got to see you and love you from the “Blessings Unlimited Summer Jam 2012″ and will miss seeing you all this year again. God bless you and take care and if I win – you are welcome to pass it along to someone if you like or I would, of course, be blessed to receive it too. Hugs to you and yours~P.J. Breig

    I too would like to thank you for the wonderful, uplifting, Daily Devotionals and the great accompanying photos.

    It’s such a pity that your Giveaways are only for those living in the USA as you have a band of followers in other places around the world; certainly here in Singapore!

    Please would you reconsider this in the future?

    God Bless and Love x

      Roy’s readers truly ARE around the globe!! Often our giveaways are able to be transferred electronically (in PDF form) as our books and pamphlets, and those are open to all readers – around the world. It’s just when we do a “tangible” giveaway (like cards) that it becomes cost prohibited to pay for out of country shipping on the items, or we expect that they may not arrive safely.

      I’ll check to see if our next giveaway could be something digital, to include our global readers again! Thanks for writing in!!

    I write from the State of Kuwait in the Middle East. We have been blessed receiving the Meet Me in the Meadow devotion daily. Thank you for making our understanding richer with insight into the Word of God.

    I am unable to access the form for the free 10 Premium Card offer, and would love to avail to it if possible.

    God bless you and the team for their endevours in bringing to us Gods promises and blessings.

      Thanks for writing! If you have an APO address yo u will be eligible to enter, and should be able to click on the link in the paragraph at the bottom to enter. It’s working here fine, so perhaps you have your settings on your computer blocked to restrict pop-ups? The entry form should open in a new screen. If you have any other problems, feel free to let us know! Grace and peace, Marina

    By Him & For Him: Beautiful message! It could be a stand alone even without the birthday greetings, as it would apply to a number of people whom we wish to bless! I would love to send one to a Israeli, Jewish teen who is here on a special mission with a group until the 22nd of July and for whom I am interceding. Though I’ve never met him, I trust God to reveal to me just how and what to pray. Thank you for all the lovely messages you share that God has imparted to you that “we might be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith” (Rom. 1:11-12).

    Roy, your writings have been touching my heart for many years! Each time I purchase a book, card or other inspirational writing with your name on it, I have confidence that it will be a blessing, not only to me, but to all those I send it to. Thank you for sharing the love of God with all of us!
