My heart is stirred as I reflect on this past year. There have been both "lows" at the level of attacks, and "highs" at what God has done in response!
Now, we are finishing the year facing yet another direct assault from Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) that is designed to destroy Liberty Counsel and me, personally.
Clearly, the SPLC and others see the victories we are having and they know that Liberty Counsel is one of the strongest defenders of faith and family in our nation. Simply put, the SPLC is out for blood. They want to destroy us! They want to remove us from the battle!
I also believe we will see the same type of "out for blood" attacks against President Trump, as members of Congress are reportedly already lining up to be on key committees that will push for impeachment. If they destroy President Trump, they could irreparably harm the pro-faith, pro-family and pro-America agenda.
+ + Hope in the midst of incredible attacks...
Yet, despite all this, I have great hope. It is very clear that God has placed Liberty Counsel precisely at the epicenter of these critical battles for such a time as this. And I am seeing the Lord expand the impact of this ministry, thanks in large part to the faithful partnership of friends like you.
Called Faith & Liberty, this spiritual outreach is located one block from the U.S. Capitol and directly across from the U.S. Supreme Court. In fact, the Justices' private entrance is just a few steps from our front door!
This new base of operations gives Liberty Counsel and our family of ministries an unprecedented platform and opportunity to impact the spiritual climate in our nation's capital... starting right now!
And it comes at the perfect time. I believe we are heading into the most challenging and most critical 90-120 days of the Trump administration. Plus, the Supreme Court will weigh in on a host of critical issues in 2019 impacting faith and family. We simply must stand for biblical truth at the highest levels of government, especially as it relates to marriage, family and the very nature of human sexuality.
As you know, in recent months we have faced difficult legal attacks while seeing the Lord provide many key victories!
As I look ahead to this new year, I'm convinced that people of faith will face even more difficult challenges than ever before. With our expanded base of operations right on Capitol Hill, we are poised to fight back. But I cannot do it without your help!
+ + $100,000 Challenge Grant...
As you may know, the Lord has blessed Liberty Counsel with a critical $100,000 Year-End Challenge Grant from a generous benefactor to challenge Liberty Counsel's online community to help meet our immediate financial need and set the pace for 2019. That means every gift we receive before the end of 2018 will be effectively doubled!
Would you prayerfully consider making a special gift to help Liberty Counsel meet this critical Challenge Grant so we can push back against attacks from the SPLC and defend people of faith in courtrooms across America?
Please give as you can, knowing that your tax-deductible year-end gift will help us offset a difficult year financially and begin the new year on better financial footing against these deep-pocketed giants. Every dollar you give will be effectively doubled by this providential year-end challenge grant!
If the Lord has blessed you, consider matching or exceeding the best gift you made in 2018 to help build our war chest for the battles just ahead.
As always, thank you so much for your faithful partnership and your prayerful support of Liberty Counsel. We know that the fights we face in the culture and in courtrooms are very much spiritual battles. Your prayers make a real difference!
God bless you!

P.S. These are critical times that require Christians to stand against the rising tide of radical anti-faith and anti-family activists.
It is vital that we meet this Challenge Grant. Every gift donated through the end of the year will count and effectively be doubled until we reach our goal.
This is an opportunity too important to miss because every gift at this time is vital to meeting our current needs while starting us on the right foot in 2019. Please help us reach our $100,000 goal!
P.P.S. If your gift is postmarked on or before midnight December 31 in your time zone, whether it is made by credit card, debit authorization, check, or cash, it will be tax-deductible for 2018 to the extent allowable by law. And, working together, we can fully meet the providential Year-End Challenge Grant we have been given! Thank you!
