When The Christian View was founded, thousands of copies of each issue, printed by Hiott Printing Company, were distributed at hundreds of locations in the Upstate of South Carolina, including churches, bookstores, grocery stores, restaurants, other businesses, organizations, ministries, the local prison, and local rehabilitation homes for those overcoming alcohol and drug addictions, as well as to subscribers' homes in the Upstate and out of state.
The Christian View has transformed into a completely online free digital magazine, and God has used this vessel to reach readers across this state, and in all 50 states in the United States, and in 173 countries around the world, sharing the Gospel locally, statewide, nationally, and internationally, as Jesus said, in Acts 1:8, that His followers are to be His witnesses in Jerusalem, Judaea, Samaria, and the uttermost part of the earth.
She gave up a job she loved as a newspaper Editor to step out in faith and follow God's call to create a Christian publication, to use journalism to share the message of the Gospel and to be a source of encouragement for readers and to bring awareness to support other Christian ministries. She is devoted full time to Christian journalism, not requiring subscriptions but trusting that the financial resources to accomplish this mission will be provided by advertising sponsors and donors who also see this need in our world.
A follower of Jesus Christ, she believes that the Bible is the inerrant, infallible, inspired Holy Word of God. A Southern Baptist, she has been a longtime active and faithful member of her church, the only church of which she has been a member, and she served with six Pastors on the South Carolina Baptist Convention's Resolutions Committee, yet she is supportive of all denominations within the Christian faith. She has several cousins who are Baptist Pastors, yet she also is descended from a Methodist Episcopal minister who served in the Revolutionary War. Several different denominations within the Christian faith are represented in articles in The Christian View magazine.
She quotes these well-known words from Denver Moore: "I'm a nobody that's trying to tell everybody about somebody that can save anybody." And these words from Dr. Johnny Hunt: "Life is short. I want to live to make a difference. I want to live as intentionally and as committed as I can to make as many differences as I can for the glory of God."
