Refresh: A New Magazine and an Opportunity for You -- Guest Post by Katy Kauffman

Refresh: A New Magazine and an Opportunity for You -- Guest Post by Katy Kauffman

Do you want to help people to know God better? If you said yes, I’m with you!

Two years ago, my family and I started a Bible study ministry called Lighthouse Bible Studies (a lifelong dream), and this October we started a magazine called Refresh Bible Study Magazine.

Some awesome writers have joined us in writing articles that speak to the heart and refresh the soul. The daily grind of life, the world’s pressures and temptations, the spiritual harassments we experience from Satan—they can all get to us at times, and we need some refreshment!

God’s Word is one of the greatest sources of refreshment for our souls. All of our articles are based on Scripture, and we have a wide range of subjects: who God is, quiet time ideas, stories of encouragement, cultural issues, society’s needs, book reviews, and more!

Check out our first issue now: Refresh Bible Study Magazine, Issue 1

If you would like to receive this free magazine by email, email me at Email me, too, if you would like to submit an article or talk about an idea you have for the magazine. Since it is a free magazine, we don’t pay for articles, but you would have the opportunity to bless people’s hearts and to get your writing out into the world in a new way. Our audience is made up of all ages, but I would like to see some teen and young adult writers contribute to the magazine and share it with their friends.

Whatever age you are, please consider subscribing to the magazine and writing for us. And visit our Refresh Facebook page, and follow us on Twitter!

We can band together to have a voice for God in the world and to refresh hearts with His truth and love. An opportunity is waiting. Will you take it?

  1. Ooo, I love the sound of this magazine, it seems really neat! Does the magazine accept fiction stories?

    1. Hello, Savannah! If your story has a spiritual point, we would be willing to consider it. Fiction can be a great way to share the truth and give people hope. Thank you for your question! Please email me with any ideas you have at

  2. Hi Katy! I was wondering about the word min/max rules.
    Thanks! :-)

    1. Hello, Ariel! I just emailed you back. Thank you for contacting me. I forgot to put the minimum word count, but it would be negotiable. :) We take poetry, too, so I know some poems may be short. The maximum word count is around 800 words. Thank you for interest, and I look forward to your reply!
