The newest RTM Magazine is out!

If you don’t know, I’m the assistant editor of this free digital mag and—for my “job” (what?!)—I get the privilege of writing, designing and sharing stories about our brothers and sisters in Christ around the world with readers from more than 100 nations! This grace overwhelms me daily.

This March/April issue is for sure my favorite one to date and I would love for you to read it.

In the new mag, you’ll find stories about Jared Wilson, my wise and beautiful friends Melanie and Alex Duke (gorgeously featured in the above photo), my dear friend Anna Farthing, as well as an appearance by Charles Spurgeon, my pastor and more!

I love these people and I know you will too. Praise for God’s big family and His grace that unites us all.

I love my job.
