Rick Warren Featured in Ladies’ Home Journal

Nov 5, 2004


The New York Times bestselling author of The Purpose-Driven® Life, Rick Warren, is featured in the December issue of Ladies’ Home Journal, with a specially-penned article, “The Purpose-Driven Christmas.” The December issue hits newsstands on November 9.

“Rick Warren delivers in his warm, wise voice, ways for all of us to make this season more meaningful, rewarding and joyful,” says Diane Salvatore, editor-in-chief of Ladies’ Home Journal. “We are excited to bring his message to our 14 million readers.”

As pastor to one of the largest churches in America, Warren gives insight to the reader on how to “get off the treadmill” of the holidays and bring purpose and meaning to your life during the Christmas season.

“I’m honored to be invited to speak to so many readers during this Christmas season,” Warren said. “My hope is that for millions, this Christmas will be less pressured and more purposeful.”

In September, The Purpose-Driven Life marked its two-year anniversary, reaching a publishing milestone of 19 million copies sold in the United States, making it the bestselling hardback nonfiction book in history. Warren recently completed a U.S. speaking and media tour in conjunction with the anniversary, including a wide range of stops from the Pentagon to a Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) National Conference in Tennessee, to the kick off this fall’s 40 Days of Purpose program involving more than 10,000 churches worldwide, with nearly 20,000 churches already having completed the program.
