No Greater Joy answers scores of letters every day. You can now read selected letters daily and the Pearls’ response. Each letter has been edited to protect the identity of those involved.

The Pearls also cover a myriad of situations in the Articles section. The Bible says, "Seek and ye shall find" (Matt. 7:7). We pray that as you read through the articles, you will find your answers.

Mike and Debi are frequently engaged in writing books or articles and may not be able to respond directly to all the questions and letters submitted. The NGJ Staff will do their best to fill in where possible.
