Our History

Have you ever sat in the dark, lost, alone? Your problems overwhelming you. You are at your wit’s end. YOU ARE NOT THE ONLY ONE!! We have all been there at one time or another in our life. This blog is the result of a joint ministry. It was originally the brainchild of Wynette Hendrick and Joyce Gerald, responding to the Lord’s call to ministry through prayer and the sharing of the Gospel. Others have joined the ministry team, and Wynette went to join her heavenly Father in 2012. At that time, Joyce, who had been writing devotionals for the blog since its beginning, became the blog’s primary contributor.  The blog will continue to present the Gospel in a real-world manner for everyone’s edification and encouragement. The business side of this ministry (You Are Not the Only One Consulting services) was closed on June 2020. But this group continues to exists as individuals who are sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Statement of Faith


The You Is Not The Only One’s mission to fulfill the Great Commission (Matthew 28:16-20) by loving God, loving people, and serving both.



The vision of the You Are Not The Only One is to utilize its devotional blog to faithfully engage all people groups through The Great Commission by supporting individuals in their relational and life challenges and using all of its gifts, spiritual, and educational to serve all people. At no cost. We are not a business and more just a place where people can come to read devotionals and become closer to God and other people.


The You Are Not The Only One values servant-leadership that is Christ-centered. Its core values are:

The scriptural references in this table speak to the team leaders’ expected behaviors and or members of the ministry. They confirm the biblical expectations of the team. The centrality of Christ that powered Pauline theology powers the team’s values (Colossians 1:16-19, 2:6, 3:1-4, the book of Romans, Galatians, Ephesians, 1 and 2 Corinthians).

  1. The Lord directs us to “Make every effort to live in peace with everyone.
  2. However, this cannot be achieved without being . . .
  3. Holy; without holiness, no one will see the Lord.” (Heb. 12:14). McNeal encapsulated the vision and values of the EA Team with this statement,

Great spiritual leaders bless people. Depending on their sphere of influence, this blessing may extend to those in their organization, their spiritual tribe, a region, an entire nation, the whole human race—whoever populates their leadership constellation. Great spiritual leaders are not just given to great issues; they are given to people. In the end, this capacity to bless is the deciding category that elevates them to greatness in spiritual leadership. The spiritual enterprise is about enhancing peoples’ lives. God is in the people business.

The enhancement of people’s lives requires thoughtful views that provide a clear perspective of the gospel of Jesus Christ.


The most important perspectives for the You Are Not The Only One is sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ. The You Are Not The Only One is not a church. The online persons must inform or encourage become/remain a member(s) of a local community.


It shall be the group’s mission and purpose to fulfill the Great Commission by loving God, loving people, and serving both as well as using all of its gifts, spiritual and educational, to serve all people (Matthew 28:16-20).  To build up and disciple the “saved” in Christian grace and living, to have a vital part in Missions here and abroad, to serve all people groups as Christ would. The purpose of this blog has never wavered. It is to show you that you are not the only one. There are thousands just like you out there and we are searching for a way to ease the pain. A way to reach out and not feel alone. We will introduce you to the one entity that is our salvation. Jesus Christ. Our Father will never forsake us and He will never leave us. We only have to reach out and He will be there. But the one sure thing is that we will not get there without Him.
