What an amazing year it has been for JP Ministries! 2014 is the birth year for this ministry and I could not have asked for a better first year. I’m so thankful for you, my faithful readers, who have helped this blog grow. Without you, this blog would not exist. After Jesus, YOU are the heart and soul of this ministry.
I want to list a few reflections from 2014 because I want you to share with me in the excitement of all the accomplishments of this ministry. God has continued to pour blessing on this ministry, and used the blog in ways I never thought possible. God gets all the glory! God has given me a passion for blogging, and I am so thankful that I get to use that passion on joypedrow.com. I write posts about topics you need and create resources that help you right where you are. Friends, I do this because I want you to grow closer to Jesus and experience all he has planned for your life.
I will share the 2014 accomplishments, thank the people who have encouraged me in this journey, and then in another post share the 2015 goals. This way you will know where JP Ministries plans on going and what to look for next.
