Streamlining and updating for better ministry

GNM logoAs you can see, this newsletter looks different. It’s also being emailed during the week instead of the weekend. We’ve been analyzing click-throughs and viewership, seeking ways to optimize what is most-loved about GNM, and pruning out what is a waste of staff time.

If you don’t like any of the changes we make, we hope you will let us know. Your feedback matters.

We have a new logo (simpler and more eye-catching) — you see it here on this page.

The GNM home page is being transitioned to a simpler, cleaner design. Our WordBytes site ( has already been similarly updated. Other sites will eventually be likewise be given a simpler design.

Come check out the GNM home page (! We’re redesigning it to be the all-in-one view of timely and daily faith-builders.

This newsletter is being honed down to its singular purpose: Notify GNM members of what’s happening inside the ministry and what’s new. Far fewer people open emails and visit the website on weekends than during the week; therefore, this newsletter will be sent out on Thursdays, the same day it’s published on the website. And it will be mailed to everyone who has signed up for any of our services (daily reflections, PDF downloads of WordBytes and prayers, etc.)

We are also reducing our social media outreach, ending our presence where there are few or no engagements and click-throughs: Gab, SmartCatholics, and MeWe. We are focusing our efforts on the busiest social media platforms: Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.

Tell us what you think!

Footsteps to Heaven podcast show with Terry Modica

New podcast episode!
When Disaster Hits, Find God (Rosary Podcast)

We have great news to share! We’re launching a new video series entitled “Rosary Podcasts“. Whoohooo! We’re so excited about this. And we hope you will give us feedback.

The first episode is called: “When Disaster Hits, Find God“. More than just the recitation of the Rosary, which you can join in with Ralph and me, it weaves an uplifting message through it. Each decade of the Rosary is lifted up for something important related to the message. It’s not just a beautiful prayer, it’s life-changing!

The message came from a WordBytes article @ Download it as a PDF.
