Here at Eternal Perspective Ministries, we receive some wonderful notes and letters from readers letting us know how Randy’s books have blessed them and helped them develop a deeper walk with Christ. Randy and the rest of the EPM staff are always encouraged and humbled to read these responses.
Although Randy’s readers are familiar with many of his books, some of them may not know much about the ministry he founded, Eternal Perspective Ministries (you can learn the history behind EPM here), or about the many free resources EPM offers.
We want to help people learn to live in light of eternity. So as much as possible, EPM offers its services free of charge. We give away a great deal of literature to churches and individuals, and provide our quarterly newsletter at no charge. Jesus said, "Freely you have received, freely give" (Matthew 10:8). We also offer substantial discounts on Randy’s books. (Browse our online store for books, audio books, and more.)
Here’s some ways you can take advantage of our resources:
Follow Randy on Facebook. Randy posts regular, daily devotional thoughts and personal comments and loves to hear from his readers. His blog posts are also posted on Facebook.

Focusing on God's 'big miracles'—like making tumors disappear—causes us to overlook his daily miracles of providence in which he holds the universe together, provides us with air to breathe and lungs to breathe it, and food to eat and stomachs to digest it. At age 31, when I became insulin-dependent, it dawned on me I had never once thanked God for a pancreas that worked perfectly until then. http://ref.ly/Ac14.17
God has seen us at our worst and still loves us. No skeletons will fall out of our closets in eternity. God won’t say, “Well, if I’d known that, I never would’ve let Randy into heaven!” God knows all my sins. And Jesus died for every one of them. No exceptions. “Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—of whom I am the worst” (1 Tim. 1:15).
Follow Randy on Twitter. Randy posts shorter, abbreviated versions of his Facebook thoughts on Twitter. You can also receive Tweets when he posts a new blog. Sign up to follow Randy by going to www.twitter.com/randyalcorn and clicking “Follow.” Here’s a couple of his past tweets:
