I’m not really sure I’ve ever plugged anything on this tiny space of mine on the interwebs.
{other than jesus, books and caffeine}
I’m not sure there has been anything worth plugging, at least nothing that has garnered so much excitement from me.
But gee wiz am I excited about this one.

Let me introduce you to Deeply Rooted Magazine.

Deeply Rooted is a gospel-centered magazine, geared towards wives and mothers, challenging them to embrace and grow in the roles God has put them in.
All of this wrapped in a beautiful publication filled with exquisite imagery, authentic words and the ever present challenge to be ever more deeply rooted in Christ.

{crazy refreshing, right?}
Seriously, I stumbled upon it via someone’s Instagram feed {p.s. i might need a come-to-jesus-talk regarding my instagram addiction very shortly}, I then dropped whatever the virtual version is of everything, and clicked my way to their sample issue.
(links to google docs for download)
There was some serious tear-inducing, hallelujah chorus singing, toddler high-fiving with some bonus fist-pumping because these women get it.
They absolutely get it.

They get the full spectrum of this season of life I am in and the roles I am called to.
There were articles that challenged me to the core to examine my heart in relation to my kids but there were also articles about food and photography.
Deeply Rooted has what I wanted to find in Kinfolk and Seeing the Everyday, but never could.
And for some reason the blogosphere seems to believe you can only exist in tiny nuanced sections of your vast callings.
You’ve got the uber serious blogs that kick your sinful heart the curb day-in and day-out, you’ve got the crafty blogs, and the food blogs, then there’s the homeschool blogs, and the army wife blogs…and they’re all great!
{ok, maybe the uber serious blog isn’t as great on day 6 when you haven’t dealt with the issues from days 1-5}
But I don’t just reside in any one of those specifics areas.

It’s part of the reason I don’t like identifying myself as an Army wife because it is too easy for people to box me up as such.
I am a wife, a mother, a homemaker, a seamstress, a bibliophile, a cook, and an Army wife, but all of those roles exist and function because the Gospel drives me and Christ is my Lord.
So just as one or all of those roles might come up in a conversation with a good friend, I feel like Deeply Rooted Magazine is one long page turning conversation.
And just like a conversation with a good friend is best enjoyed over a cup of coffee, you should probably read Deeply Rooted with a fresh cup as well.

So since this plugging thing is a first (and since I’ve not been asked to or paid to do so) I want all 6 of you to take this very seriously, {like heart attack serious} and then do a URL sprint over to their campaign and order your first issue.
Thankfully the campaign is already funded, so the magazine will go to print, but you have 4ish days left to order your first issue and support this amazing ministry.

Oh, and Happy Valentine’s Day!
