About Just Between Us Magazine and Ministry for Christian Women

Just Between Us (JBU) is a non-profit ministry and quarterly magazine focused on encouraging and equipping Christian women around the world for a life of faith. Just Between Us provides information, advice, encouragement, and real-life stories to inspire and help you on your journey to live for Christ.

Over 30 years ago, God took international speaker and author Jill Briscoe’s dream for a tool for Christian women and made it a reality. Publishing experts, at the time, told Jill that Just Between Us magazine could never be sustained with a handful of part-time staff and volunteers, but she went ahead anyway. Amazingly, since that time, JBU reaches subscribers in 65 countries and in all 50 states and has become that source of encouragement that Jill envisioned from the beginning. 

“There’s no doubt in any of our minds that every issue of the magazine is a miracle; that it is something that God does. He is the One who has directed this ministry from its very inception, and He is the One who has carried us through every issue with His fingerprints on the content and His Spirit bringing life, literally, from its pages.” ~ Shelly Esser, Editor  

As a magazine and ministry, Just Between Us has sought to be a friend to women everywhere and to come alongside them in their joys and difficulties, ministering through biblically-based, relevant content through the written word.

To that end, JBU covers topics on the Christian life, relationships, marriage and family, health, life’s struggles, and your relationship with Christ, as well as providing resources for doing ministry and everything in between. Regular content also includes topics like dealing with difficult people, handling stress, battling depression and suicide, dealing with pornography, growing spiritually, finding hope in difficult times, and understanding current cultural issues like homosexuality. 

JBU also reaches women globally and partners with women around the world in places like: Japan, Brazil, Indonesia, South Africa, South America, the United Kingdom, and many other places. The women in these countries take articles from the JBU magazine and translate them into their native languages so that women can be encouraged, because they are without any Christian resources.  

One of our readers said this about JBU

"I just received my newest JBU! This issue was written for me. I'm convinced of it. God meant for this magazine with these articles to be placed in my hands today. I needed to read them to realize that another woman has been there and understands, and to read that God is perfect in His timing with no errors in His plan. THANK YOU for JBU! I needed it, right here, and right now."

Join us as God continues to use our Just Between Us magazine, website, JBU books and greeting cards, to resource and minister to women worldwide. We invite you to let us come into your lives as your trusted friend and to become a part of this very special community of Christian women today!
