Pierce my heart anew

Psalm 51:10: “Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me.”

Now that the hustle and bustle of the holidays are coming to an end, we can sit back and really enjoy the calmness of the winter season. We can take time to meditate on the above verse and allow our hearts to be renewed.

Pierce My Heart has decided to do the same thing, in many ways! Some of our staff has changed columns they’ve been writing for, we’ve decided to take out a few columns, we’ve added a couple new ones, and we’ve changed the directions of some columns we already have.

Deleted columns

A few of our columns have been taken out to allow room for newness this year – but don’t worry! You can still read all of the old articles by clicking on the monthly issues and choosing the month you want to read.

New columns

Have you ever wondered what the Bible says about topics such as abortion and homosexuality? If you have, then In the World is the column for you. Topics like these will be covered from a scriptural perspective so you can take this information and be informed when discussing these issues in class or with friends.

Many of us love fashion, but we also like make-up and hair, right? Fashion and Beauty is breaking off into two separate columns to give us more of what we like! Style Sense is going to cover head-to-toe fashions and our beauty column will discuss hair, skin, and nails. Fun, fun!

We all like behind-the-scenes looks into people’s real lives, right? Just for Today is a new blog about my life outside the magazine. Come, take a look, and I think you just might find that we’re more alike than you realized.

As a thank-you to our readers, we are going to begin hosting a give-away each month. This month we will be giving away a few beauty products, so check our beauty article this month for details.

New direction

Do you have a friend you’d love to discuss the Bible with, but don’t know where to start? Spread the Word is going to tell you how! Topics such as baptism and the Lord’s Supper will be presented here, in ways that will make it easier for you to speak with friends about biblical topics.

I don’t know about you, but I love to soak up the wisdom of women older than me. Words of Wisdom is still going to be here this year, but with a new name, Heart to Heart (taken from the name of an old column). Those women will have heart-to-heart talks with us each month, and we want the name to reflect that.

Gifted Girls is growing, too. We’re having themes of photos you can send in every month to be posted on the magazine, from cards to hemp jewelry, and more! Check here each month to find new ideas from young women that you can try at home yourself.

Friends is also taking a new and exciting direction! Last year had great articles that covered the foundation of friendship, and this year we’re going to focus more on having fun with friends, from anti-Superbowl parties to group Valentine’s Day get-togethers, and more.

We have several other columns that are headed in the same direction as before, but with newer, more interesting names, so stay tuned!

Same old

The rest of the Pierce My Heart columns are continuing to grow, but are headed in similar directions as before. We like that, because we don’t change just to change – we improve what needs improved, and keep the rest!

You can subscribe to the magazine, on the right-hand side of the page, to receive your favorite articles in your inbox the day they’re posted! Don’t forget about the Facebook Fan Club. You can join, and invite all of your Facebook friends to join too!
