My name is Cheryll Schuette, and I'm the newest Editor of the Bahá’í site. There are many online resources for factual information about the Bahá'í Faith, but sometimes you need a voice to give you a personal perspective.
The Bahá’í Faith may be the world’s fastest growing religion, certainly it is the second most widely spread according to Encyclopedia Brittanica, but with only about seven million adherents, there may be no one you know where you live. My plan is to share my experiences and introduce you to one woman's understanding of the Teachings that Bahá'ís believe will change the world--because we've seen it happen, little by little, day by day.
Bahá'ís believe that it is not only possible to make peace in the world, but also that it is inevitable. We believe that people are inherently capable of good, but that it takes daily effort to develop that spiritual nature. Such good news is not extensively covered on prime time TV, and it really should be. In order to remain positive and energized about humanity, people need to hear about the successes instead of always the failures, the healthy instead of the perverse, what works instead of what or who didn't.
Sign up for my newsletter and keep up to date on the latest from the BellaOnline Bahá’í site, plus interesting links and stories too short or too rich in graphics to post. The 'Net is full of inspiring coverage of people dedicated to applying spiritual principles to making the world a better place--and succeeding.
My weekly text-only newsletter will let you know whenever a new article is posted, as well as including a short list of neat stuff I think you might like to explore further at your leisure.

Rest assured, BellaOnline NEVER sends out spam, or sells email lists. We take privacy very seriously, so you needn't worry that your personal information might be auctioned off to the highest bidder, or even viewed by this editor!

Unsubscribing is easy, too: Every newsletter includes a link to unsubscribe. Just click on it and follow the instructions. But, naturally, I hope you find enough inspiration that you won't need to!
I love input, so feel free to suggest topics you would like to see covered in the site. And, please report any links that don't work!

BellaOnline Fora are always positive and supportive places to explore new ideas without fear of criticism or character assassination.
