Calling All Marketing Gurus! (Plus, Summer Magazine On the Way)

Filed under Lauren's Thoughts on Jun 18 13 by

Hey Ladies,

Thanks so much for your support of The You Are Project! I wanted to update everyone that the new issue is being sent to the printer tonight, and everyone who pre-ordered copies should receive theirs early next week.


This is a few days later than I intended, so my apologies for that! I had a lot more free time when I started working on this issue, but in the past few weeks I’ve had a lot of work to do—which is really a blessing, so thank you God for providing for me! But it also means that I’ve been juggling a lot of changes, work responsibilities, and the fact that I haven’t had the chance to settle into my new routine just yet. It’s wonderful to be able to transition into the next step of my life, but it’s also an uncomfortable shuffle because I feel a little overwhelmed and under-organized.

In addition to being busy with work and the magazine, I haven’t been updating the blog as much as I would like to. Once I get my head on straight, I’ll be on the lookout for individuals who would like to assist for some of the content management and site updates, as well as our online marketing activities. If you’re interested, shoot me an email at—just introduce yourself, let me know what skills you’d like to contribute to the project, and if you could, let me know what you love about You Are and why you’re interested in helping out. I’m looking forward to meeting you and working with you!

You are all in my thoughts and prayers as I work on the final edits for You Are REAL, and I would appreciate your prayers for me! Even though I have a lot of work to do, I’m blessed to be able to do what I love and to pursue this mission that God has me on. I can’t imagine anything better for my life than what He has for me!

Lauren ♥
