12 February 2019

Lori Yanez, one of SPAG Magazine’s writers who was based in USA, passed away last night – her pastor advised me earlier today. She was a widow with an adult son.

Lori had various health issues which meant she had to use a wheelchair to get around. She shared with us some terrific articles over the last couple of years, and will certainly be missed, though I’m sure she’s enjoying whooping it up in heaven right now.

You might like to pray for her son who went through some big struggles a few years back, but has gotten his life back on track, and also pray for her friends, family and her church family.

The September to November 2018 issue is now available to purchase from our online store, as are all of our earlier issues. Link here. 

Why buy it or any of our earlier issues? This is a way that you can support this ministry, plus of course, you get to read lots of terrific articles on a range of topics. If you want to be challenged, if you want to be inspired, if you want to grow in your Christian walk, then you’re in the right place.

Articles in issue 14 included:

  • Don’t get married;

  • Inspirational people: Dr Louis Appia;

  • Short story: The Toy Maker;

  • Open Doors: Five of the most powerful images from 2017;

  • Four things God says to singles;

  • What if the worst happens?

  • We’ve got to hurry;

  • What if was your church?

Along with many of our regular articles, trivia, puzzle page, Kristie’s Kitchen and heaps more

Calling all singles!

How Do You Respond to Those Dumb Comments?

How do you respond when other people make silly, annoying, rude or repetitive comments to you about being a single person? What kinds of things do they say? We had an article in the March/May 2018 issue of SPAG Magazine, sharing things that people have said to other Christian singles about their state of ‘unwedded bliss.’

If you’d like to share some of the comments said to you, please fill out the form on this page, or email us:

Becci and Robbo from the Rise and Show program on Vision FM interviewed me on 24 March about my near death experience, which I shared in an earlier issue of SPAG Magazine. Here’s a link to a copy of that interview:

Bridget Brenton from Christian Today wrote a fantastic review about an earlier issue of SPAG Magazine. You can find the review here.

AND FOR YOU: a FREE devotional booklet for one month:

We hope this book will bring you into a closer relationship with God through praise, prayer and worship.

Here’s the link to the downloadable pdf (link here)

Join our Prayer Network Team

One of the most important things you can do for SPAG Magazine is pray for us. We need prayer to not only increase our readership, but to enable God to reach out to Christians and Christian leaders across the world, with articles which will encourage, inspire and challenge them.

We also need your prayers for enough finances to keep SPAG Magazine going.

If you’re interested in joining our prayer network, you can become a member on Facebook on this link.

Can 44¢ a day really help SPAG Magazine?

While we’ve recently overhauled some expenses to reduce costs, there are still lots of costs we need to cover to ensure we keep SPAG Magazine available and to provide it to you for free.

This is one of the reasons we sell items through our online store.

During the 2017/2018 financial year, we received some welcome donations and purchases (thank you so much), but still, the outstanding costs were just over *$1,600. That works out to around $4.40 a day.  If just ten people had contributed 44¢ a day for the year, our operating costs would have been met – that’s less than one small cappuccino a week!

Would you consider being one of those ten people for our current financial year (2018/2019)? Perhaps you could ask nine people from your church or singles group to make up the remainder. Maybe you could put in a good word for us if you know a great Christian organisation that might be able to help.

Consider also that while we purchased a new computer and monitor back in 2016 (the $2,000 came out of Vicki’s now empty savings account), we have to consider that some time in the next few years, we will likely have to replace our computer again, and with no extra money in her savings account, Vicki has no financial means to purchase a new computer. (The previous computer cost around $1,700, and the monitor was around $300.)

With the assistance of group of ten supporters such as you, putting aside 28¢ a day for the next two years (or 14¢ a day by twenty supporters), we’d have enough money to purchase a new computer tower and monitor as our current computer reaches the end of its life.

   Can you help? Email us for our bank details: 

Would you make a commitment to help SPAG Magazine in its mission?

Our mission is to inspire, challenge and encourage Christian adults in their walk, and to honour and exalt God.
