35 and counting

That’s the number of volunteers (including core group members) who have committed to work on the Christian bimonthly magazine we’re putting up: TURN. We have editors, writers, artists, photographers, stylists, advertising and marketing people, circulation staff, admin staff, finance staff, web developers and scriptwriters on board, all with a burden to serve God this way. When you hear their stories, you’ll be blessed and be amazed at how God works. Prior to this ministry, we didn’t know each other. But when we started meeting, we were so surprised at how each one’s strength complements that of the other.

TURN. Know where you’re going. A Christian lifestyle magazine. Out in newsstands in January 2007.

P.S. That’s me on the front row, in white top.

VERSE OF THE WEEK: Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen. 1 Peter 4:10-11

BOOK OF THE WEEK: Voices of the Faithful by Beth Moore and Friends was first recommended to me by Gigi, my high school classmate and my son’s pedia. It’s a great collection of stories from missionaries spread across the globe. You’ll be touched by their firsthand experiences dealing with people, such as that story about an abused 7-year-old who asked for pills that would give her hope.
