Dear Readers

Dear Readers, 

Hello and welcome to PositivePress News, your independent online source for positive, uplifting and inspiring stories about Central Florida churches, congregations, people and faith-based non-profits. 

We created Positive Press as an antidote to the barrage of negative, divisive stories that permeate the majority of today’s news, as well as to address the woeful lack of stories that once graced the pages of every paper in America.

With newspaper downsizing and cuts to staff happening consistently across the nation, it’s getting harder and harder to find a story about a new church being built, a non-profit that helps the needy, or someone making the difference in the lives around them. 

In short, one rarely sees, “Good News,” in print anymore. Papers simply don’t have room for it. Murder and mayhem take precedent over grace and goodness. 

Our hope and passion is to change that with each new edition of PositivePress News. Look for updated stories and information each week, with an emphasis on positivity and sharing the Good News. 

Stay awhile, look around and let us know how we’re doing, and if you’re inclined, please support us by sharing our website with others, subscribing (it’s free!), donating to our cause or, if you’re a business, by advertising with us. 

As a side-note: As a writer and professional journalist with more than 30 years of experience in the newspaper industry at two of the largest daily newspapers in Florida, I believe in the importance of The Fourth Estate, and support the efforts of print journalists as vital watchdogs in our democracy. You should as well. 

Be blessed,
