"Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord." (Psalm 27:14 NIV)

One of the unique things about the ministry of Just Between Us is that we are reader-written ministry. Women from all over the world, who have a heart to walk alongside women to encourage, inspire, comfort, help, and bring hope through the power of God's Word, share their writing gifts with this ministry. They are women just like you, coming from all ages and stages of life─single women, married women, joyful women, hurting women, and everything in between. Our authors are women who don't want you to feel alone, so they put their hearts out there, so you will have those "me too" moments and feel like you have made a new friend. Somehow now your faith journey doesn't seem so hard, so overwhelming. You will find an incredible sisterhood waiting for you as our authors share their hearts...and leave every article  saying, "Someone understands me and my heart. Someone gets what I'm going through." And they do!
