Hope for Women (Hope), the first Christian lifestyle magazine to celebrate the diversity of women of faith, is announcing the relaunch of its print publication and new Web site. The redesigned Web site will go live on Monday, March 8, 2010 and the revamped quarterly magazine will be available on Wednesday, March 24, 2010.

An independent general-interest magazine targeted at a diverse audience of Christian women, Hope was launched on a modest budget by CEO and Publisher Angelia L. White and a small team of editors and writers in 2005. It now reaches more than 50,000 readers every month across its various platforms including its Web site (http://www.hopeforwomenmag.com), bi-weekly e-newsletter and quarterly print magazine.

“The relaunch of Hope couldn’t come at a more exciting time for us,” White stated. “The newly designed print magazine gives our readers the high-quality full-color glossy print they are accustomed to with a fresh editorial focus and design.”

The revamped magazine’s expanded content now includes a wide-range of women’s interests including Beauty, Entertainment, Career & Money, Relationships, Health/Wellness and Faith/Inspiration. The spring issue features actress Tasha Smith, Grammy Award-winning Christian pop rock singer and author Rebecca St. James, Auntie Anne’s founder Anne Beiler, and Abby Rike from The Biggest Loser, as well as three special sections – Woman of Hope, The Delicate Balance and Touchstones of Healing.

Hope’s redesigned Web site is focused on creating an online community for diverse women of faith. According to White, the site will now feature seven different channels: In the Magazine, Inspiration, Style & Beauty, Entertainment, Relationships, Career & Money and Lifestyle. This site will also include a robust blog written by several of the magazine’s contributors, special interviews and articles, and the utilization of social media vehicles including Twitter and Facebook. “We are leveraging the latest in social media tools with our Web redesign, we now have a remarkable ability to connect with both readers and advertisers,” White explained.

Hope for Women (Hope) is a Christian lifestyle magazine that celebrates the diversity of women of faith regardless of our differing cultures, ages or roles as women. Launched in 2005, the magazine now reaches more than 50,000 readers every month. Hope inspires, uplifts, enlightens, enriches, and motivates its readers to live dynamic, purpose-filled lives. Expect the best. For more information, visit http://www.hopeforwomenmag.com.
