Pierce my heart in choosing a career

desktopstandardljune092 Timothy 2:15 “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”

This summer

Welcome to summer! June is a special month for us, because it marks the anniversary of our premier date – we’ve been an official online magazine for exactly one year! Articles from our very first issue, “Pierce my heart in the Son” can be found here, and you can go here to choose any of our back issues to read.

We’re focusing on our futures this summer, beginning with choosing a career this month, continuing with our college edition next month, and closing with a theme in August that’s dedicated to preparing our hearts and minds for marriage. Whether or not you’ve entered these stages, you can benefit from the articles, since some articles cover the basics we need to know in advance, and other articles are more in-depth.

We also have several articles that will appear throughout the summer about one girl whose entire life changed because of one decision she made, and how she dealt with the consequences of her actions. She shares her story in hopes that you will learn from her mistakes, and consider the consequences of your actions and how they can affect your future.

This month

On the spiritual front, we’ll discuss the work that Jesus has already done for us, the type of work Christ wants in His church, how to be involved by volunteering for summer activities at your church, and how to keep a godly attitude in a work environment.

We’ll also offer a list of growing careers to think about pursuing, and we’ll talk about how to conduct ourselves in the workplace, with articles discussing the interview, how to dress on the job, the inappropriateness of flirting, and how to handle work stress. Plus, we’ll give suggestions for fast and healthy breakfasts and lunches – perfect for busy work days.

Gifts by Hannah ColleyThe issue of time management will be addressed, and will hopefully encourage you to seek balance in your own life. We’ll also review a book written by a girl when she was just sixteen years old – this girl made great use of her time to be able to write a book amid tests, school activities, and everything else she had going on in her life.

Fun in the sun

Most of us love being out in the sun, but there are very real dangers in sunbathing. We’ll discuss the dangers of the sun, and tell how to keep our skin safe and healthy while enjoying the fresh air. We’ll also give suggestions for getting a tan without the risk, complete with budget-friendly product recommendations.

No money for a vacation? Try a staycation! Whether your family has a free Saturday, a long weekend, or an entire week to spend together, there are plenty of activities you can plan on doing right in your own backyard, so be sure to read our Generation Gap article this month (you’ll also find a few ideas that will work great when babysitting!).


We have a devotional book to give away this month, complete with short daily devotionals – perfect for the working woman! Check back in the upcoming weeks for more details.

Your job

Whether you’re looking for a lifelong career, or just hoping to score a summer job to save for college, remember to strive to glorify God first, and to be an example to others around.

Colossians 3:17a: “Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord.”
