Missouri's Current Issue...

November/December 2018 Issue

The Country Register of Missouri is published every two months. The time seems to fly by between issues.

For those who prefer to read on-line we are now publishing the complete paper here for you on our web site and will leave back issues on as well. How often we have been called and someone has given their paper away or misplaced it and needed the name or location of a shop, a tea room or wanted to know where there was a paper close to them.

The print edition will still be available as usual in each advertising shop and other select rack locations. Some people will always and forever prefer to sit down in a cozy chair with a cup of tea and read through the paper edition page by page. The younger generations are more apt to go on-line and so we hope to just broaden our readership and bring more customers to the shops because of this extra exposure.

 Cover Artist featured in this issue:

Annie LaPoint

Annie LaPoint loved to draw and paint at an early age and knew as a young girl she would grow up to be an artist. Annie has been known for many years for her popular watercolor paintings of mossy garden pots filled with ivy topiaries and blooms of all kinds.

Today, Annie’s fresh new artwork is keeping up with today’s trends in the world of art and licensing. Painting with bright colors and collaging with vintage hymnals and books, her fun creative designs are making a lot of people smile! “More than ever, I love each moment I spend painting and creating in my studio. My hope is that my artwork brings as much joy and peace to others, as I receive in creating it.” 

If you look carefully you will find a scripture reference from the Bible tucked away in every painting. Annie says, “It’s a way I can give each painting back to the Lord God. He’s the One who gave me this talent in the first place, and He is the Greatest Artist of all!”

Since 2001, Annie and her husband Ken have had a ministry to Mexico, building homes and churches in very poor communities. Today, their organization ULBC Casabuilders, along with volunteer groups, is building “Mi Casa Children’s Home” in Tecate, Mexico. They’re looking forward to welcoming young children in need of a caring home to the five acre Mi Casa Ranch, in the very near future!
