through His Word
Grab a cup of hot chocolate, and snuggle in your favorite chair. Here’s a magazine you’ll want to read. Broken but Priceless: The Magazine is an encouraging resource for those who have chronic illnesses and for those who need some hope in the middle of trials. The magazine is free and comes by email to subscribers. Since I have the privilege of designing it, I get to read all the articles before they’re released and I anticipate with excitement the time when everyone else reads them.
Erin Elizabeth Austin and Josie Siler not only have a magazine, but every week they share dozens of quotes, Bible verses, and inspiring paragraphs on social media, reaching out to people who have chronic illnesses. Their blog is filled with testimonies of God’s grace through difficulties. They lead Broken but Priceless Ministries, and I admire them for their bravery and focus on God as they struggle with their own illnesses. Their hearts’ desire is to help other people who face similar battles and to remind them that though their bodies may be broken, they are priceless in God’s eyes.
For two years, I have loved being a part of their team. Just a couple of weeks ago, we released the January issue. Unknown to the contributors of this issue, “press on” emerged as a common theme of their articles. In the middle of our difficulties and pain, we can look to God to work amazing good out of life’s challenges, and press on.
So here it is! You can view the magazine instantly at the link below. Please share this magazine with friends and family, and if you’d like to subscribe to it, you can email me at:
This issue spotlights diabetes, showing the causes and possible treatments of Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes. It also features a young lady who discovered she had Type1 Diabetes when she was twenty years old, but it didn’t stop her from pursuing her dreams. I hope you’ll read her story in this issue and be encouraged to trust God through the surprises and challenges you may face.
