Revive Our Hearts

www.reviveourhearts.com

"Gateway to Joy," the popular radio program hosted by Elisabeth Elliot for the last 13 years, has a new host and a new name. The transition was completed on Monday, Sept. 3, as speaker and author Nancy Leigh DeMoss became the host of the program, now called "Revive Our Hearts." The format features DeMoss teaching live before an audience of 25 to 30 women. Nancy DeMoss combines a passionate heart for God and a tender heart for women, with an unusual understanding and love for the Word of God. God has given Nancy a fresh, much-needed message for today's women. Since 1980, DeMoss has served as director of publications and women's ministries and editor of Spirit of Revival magazine for Life Action Ministries. Jennifer Trautman, administrative assistant of Good Life Associates at Back to the Bible, says the program's theme is similar to Elliot's in that it focuses on women's issues and is being aired on most of the same radio stations.

Cheryl, author of "Stay-at-Home Handbook," offers practical advice for the mom whose stress level strrretches and snaps in the long, hot summer ahead. She tells moms, "If you've got the end-of-school blues, snap out of it! We've got some awesome kids, and summer provides a great opportunity to reconnect with them. They've changed a lot since last June, and as they grow, so do their abilities." Read more of Cheryl's observations and tips in the complete online article--and happy summer, Mom!

When preparing to go to Albania in 1997, some ideviduals looked for magazines or newsletters specifically for women in missions. To their dismay, they found none. That's when they approached Stephanie Nelson, who had her own writing and editing business, with the idea of starting a magazine that would be a forum for issues uniquely related to women in foreign missions service. "I am challenged and deeply encouraged listening to the hearts of other women," they said. "I need their experiences and wisdom to persevere. I need connection with those who also have chosen this challenging, difficult, but exhilarating path." "Making that connection a reality is what this magazine is about," says Stephanie, editor of Women of the Harvest.

The articles are written by women serving around the world and focus on a woman's relationship with the Lord and how He sustains her, as well as humorous and practical ideas for cross-cultural living. Other regular features address cultural transition, packing tips for women getting ready to leave for the field, current book reviews, recipes and substitutions and much more.

Women of the Harvest is an excellent resource to make them feel remembered, affirmed, and encouraged. You may find out more about this ministry by visiting their website: www.womenoftheharvest.com. The magazine is published six times a year with a subscription rate of $24.00, which includes postage, both domestic and international. You may subscribe by using either check or credit card payment. The magazine is enclosed in a plain white envelope with only their logo and return address on the outside. If you are reluctant to have it mailed directly, you may request special routing.

A Case Study In Effective Online Evangelism
Women's pages demonstrate universal issues

Because CCC produce two outwardly-similar women's sites, this gives us a unique opportunity. We have a ready-made comparison which demonstrates the best way to communicate to non-Christian and Christian audiences. Women Today Magazine www.womentodaymagazine.com (WTM) is evangelistic. Christian Women Today www.christianwomentoday.com (CWT) is for Christian women.

Some Christians might look at CHRISTIAN WOMEN TODAY, notice the comfortable familiar Christian words on front and inner pages: "prayer", "repentance", "saved", etc., and say, "Ah, this is the evangelistic site. This must preach the Gospel."

But no! CWT is designed for Christians. No doubt some non-Christians visit, as they do any site. In fact, WTM is the site that has been carefully written for non-Christians.

This is why we have two separate websites. On Christian Women Today we can have a section called Prayer and online Bible studies and it's very effective because we are speaking to an audience for whom these terms have meaning. On Women Today we approach things differently. We give people a reason to want to listen to us, to speak to them where they are and as we are speaking to their situation we will tell them about Christ in words that they understand. (1 Cor 9:19-23 backs that up nicely.)

The publication takes a low-key approach to sharing the gospel in the context of a friendly magazine for women.


Women's Ministry Network

The Womens Ministry Network exists to enhance the efforts of Christian women and organizations whose calling is to evangelize, build-up, or mobilize women across the globe, for the sake of the Gospel.

Women Today Magazine

As women continue to make up a greater share of the Internet population, the market for Web-based magazines and online communities for women is burgeoning. One Internet women's magazine aimed at connecting this audience with Christ is Women Today Magazine ( http://www.womentodaymagazine.com/ ). This publication is actually an outreach of Campus Crusade for Christ ( http://www.crusade.org/ ), but it provides the same sort of content and coverage as iVillage, Oxygen or other online women's magazines.

Of course, what makes Women Today Magazine different is its mission of drawing the reader closer to a relationship with Christ. It does so through helpful articles that provide a pragmatic service to readers (such as a recent article for working women, "How to love the job you've got"), but also offer something of eternal value. For example, a sidebar to the "love your job" story, "Achieving lasting success," urges readers to "Take an inventory of your strengths and weaknesses. Where are you right now in every area of your life? Personally. Professionally. Spiritually. This is a moment of truth. Be honest with yourself about who you really are." The site also provides links to other helpful evangelistic resources on the Internet.


Women Today (International):

Helping women connect with God, one another, helpful resources and opportunities for ministry. http://www.womentoday.org
