My inbox and social media feeds are flooded with information that raises my anxiety and stress levels. When The Hughsletter arrives, it opens a window and allows me to stick my head outside and take a deep breath. – Kelly Marie Hurd

Sunday morning we were out in the truck before dawn, and my little guy said quietly from the back seat in an awe-filled voice, “It’s calming to lookat the sky.”  I looked up.  He was right.  That’s what the Hughsletter is for me.  A calming break from the noise and chaos–a time to appreciate creation, all forms of it.  It doesn’t get any better than that.  There is hope in my inbox every Monday morning.  Thanks, Hugh.  – Tara Joyner Hausler
