Under the original name of Women of the Harvest (1997), Thrive’s first focus was to publish a magazine written by global women for global women. The goal was to give them a voice – to allow them to share their experiences on the field with other women who could relate. It creates a safe environment to be transparent about the joys and challenges of living in another culture while sharing the love of Christ. Their stories do not all have happy endings, but they point women back to their relationship with the Lord and are testimonies of God’s faithfulness. The magazine provides support and encouragement by allowing them to connect with other women who “get their life.”
In 2005, the magazine transitioned from a printed publication to an onlineMagazine distributed electronically worldwide. Since the transition, subscriptions have grown from approximately 3,000 to over 10,000. By going online, we were also able to stop charging subscription fees and begin providing all of our electronic publications free of charge. We are proud to announce that in May 2008, the onlineMagazine won the top Award of Excellence from the Evangelical Press Association for online publications!
