From the Founder and Editorial Director
I am so excited to introduce to you the first edition of Just Saying as it launches during the year that Canada celebrates 150 years old as a Confederate Nation! I was born a Centennial baby in 1967, 100 years after Confederation. Today, 50 years later, I stand as a proud Canadian, a writer, author, professor, business woman, wife and mom.
As a very young child being encouraged by my parents to speak, read and write to a middle-aged adult woman who recognizes the importance of this encouragement and the opportunities that I have been so graciously given. I now want to pay it forward by sharing with you the love of positive communication and the many possibilities that can transpire as a result.
In the words of Canada’s first Prime Minister, Sir John A. MacDonald, “If I had influence over the minds of the people of Canada, any power over their intellect, I would leave them this legacy: Whatever you do, adhere to the Union. We are a great country, and shall become one of the greatest in the universe if we preserve it; we shall sink into insignificance and adversity if we suffer it to be broken.”
Aligning with Sir John A. MacDonald’s words, the stories, articles, podcasts, videos and interviews contained in this magazine declare a message of preserving unity and providing hope that will enhance and enrich the lives of people all around the world. This magazine is for people of all ages. It is comprised of an international team of dedicated communicators inspired by their God-given talents and abilities. Together we are one united voice wanting to reach the nations of the world to offer hope, encouragement and healing.
The thread that is woven throughout the magazine originates from the realization that we all need to come to a place of deeper understanding that God has plans for our lives and these plans are perfect plans, to bring all of us hope and a future. There is not one human being alive upon this earth that is perfect. However, having the understanding that God is committed to finishing the good work that He has begun in each of our lives and that He is working even now at this moment faithfully writing the epic stories that feature each one of us both collectively and individually.
Some of you may be going through a difficult chapter in your life, while others are experiencing a season filled with joy and peace. Wherever you find yourself on life’s journey the dedicated team of Just Saying’s united voice is committed to speaking hope, peace and truth to help comfort and guide you.
