We regret to inform you that TRU Teen Magazine will be ceasing publication with the Fall 2014 issue (our most recent published issue).
This is a sad time for us, not only because we love the magazine, but also because we love investing into you! Your support lets us know that you believe in the value and power of this publication and its ministry, and we could not be more humbled and grateful for your support over the past three years.
Current subscribers will receive more information in the near future. If you have questions, please see the frequently asked questions below or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org before December 31, 2014, and we will do our best to assist you.
To all of our readers and subscribers, our prayer is that God will continue to fill your hearts with His wisdom and insight regarding your value, worth, and God-given ability to achieve your dreams. We know that He is bigger than our publication, and we trust that He will continue working in and through your lives in meaningful ways. It will be our continued prayer that God uses Examples Family Resources and other like-minded people and organizations to provide resources in multiple formats, godly mentors and strong community for you, your daughters and teen girl groups.
Deanna Mason and Examples Family Resources will continue working with teen girls, mothers and mentors by hosting workshops, conferences, and community efforts that invest into young lives and those that love and work with them. We hope that those that partner with us financially will continue to support the work of Examples Family Resources as we grow and develop in other areas of ministry.
