Jesus Child magazine (formerly known as ‘I Love Christian Music’ has become the first Christian magazine for all sexes and denominations to be stocked by WH Smiths. It is also the first ever Christian music/lifestyle magazine with international coverage, being available to buy at selected newsagents and WH Smiths across the UK and also at selected Barnes and Noble stores in the USA from Monday 13th August. The next issue (out in September) will almost be available to purchase in Europe.
The magazine aimed at young Christians (around 16 to 30), almost didn’t make it to the shops, when their previous distributor of the magazine, Native, went into administration. This meant that Cardiff based Owner/Editor and single mum of 3, Dee Blackmore, lost everything she had put into the business. “I was devastated. This came as a climax to a series of setbacks I had experienced in trying to launch the business (Saint Michael Studios) and the magazine. But despite all this, I knew God wanted me to continue. I would never have got this far without His Help”.
