“The Fit Christian” Magazine

Publishing a magazine is difficult. As you know… I’ve had my struggles, but I am thrilled to say we are sending it off to the printer this week! I will keep you posted on it’s progress and let you know when it ships. Please cover it in prayer that it will all go smoothly and that the costs will be covered in the next couple of months.

Knowing the challenges of following your passions and the earthly struggles is one of the reasons I appreciate Angela Perez, editor (and organizer – wear-er of many has!) of  "The Fit Christian". It’s an online magazine, but (1) it looks like a REAL magazine (2) it’s free!

I know fit may be the last thing you feel, but Angela has published articles on illness in the past and it’s also a great resource to pass on to someone you care about who would enjoy it! Any time I can support another Christian who is putting out  a great resource I get excited!

And guess what…? It has FOOTBALL stuff in it, so pass it along to those men!

Bring the Big Game Home: Just because you don’t have tickets to this week’s most talked about football matchup doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy yourself on game day. Why not use the opportunity to fire up the barbecue, gather friends and family, and bring the tailgating party home?…
