EDITOR & FOUNDER: I’m twenty-two and just moved back to Colorado after four years in Thailand. The preteen to early teen years were defining for me. Offering guidance to other girls as they face those years is my passion. I’ve been hooked on creating publications ever since I picked up a design program at age twelve. I’m excited about growing with you as we seek to love Jesus with all our hearts. Welcome to Vibrant Girl!
CORE CREATIVE: I love being a mommy and a wife, and so much more than that. My favorite days are when I connect on a heart level with a friend, or when I get to try out a new Pinterest project for my house. I also get excited about planning and hosting parties, amateur photo shoots with friends, and spending time in beautiful nature. I am thrilled to be a part of the Vibrant Girl team, and am passionate about helping young girls find a deep, daily relationship with their Heavenly Father.
CORE CREATIVE: I live in Canon City, Colorado. I have three brothers and four sisters and am the seventh child. I love to shop, sew, talk with friends, crochet, drink coffee, play piano, draw, read and take joy in the little pleasures in life. Ladies like Elizabeth Elliot and Corrie Ten Boom inspire me. I love digging into God's word and being drawn closer to Him.
Joyce & Londa Yoder
SUBSCRIPTION MANAGEMENT: I, Londa, am 17 and have two younger brothers. I love books, cappuccino, sleepovers, stargazing, pretty journals, and one-on-one. Jesus is the reason for my joy and love! I, Joyce, am the mother of this teenage daughter, Londa, and an Aunt to Monica. We live in ND on my husband's family farm. I love being a home school mom and helping my husband with his businesses. We love traveling, camping and doing things together as a family.
WRITER: For the most part, I’m a “regular” 20 year-old who enjoys writing, music, photography, and chocolate. On the other hand, I’m not “regular.” When I was three-months old, I had a heart transplant. I’ve been in and out of the hospital throughout my life. Although the doctors don’t know my life expectancy, I choose to enjoy my life to the fullest! Living as a child of Christ is what brings me the most joy!
WRITER: I was a Colorado girl until I moved Chiang Mai, Thailand. A lot of my days are spent studying language and doing daycare for a ridiculously cute little girl. I enjoy brainstorming ideas, playing piano, watching my nephews’ latest antics, connecting with people one-on-one, and discovering more about our God!
WRITER & ILLUSTRATOR: I reside in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. My hobbies are creating stories through writing, filming videos, drawing, and on occasion, performing. I also enjoy experiencing stories by adventuring, reading, and meeting strange yet interesting people. I believe everyone’s life is a story that can be crafted into a beautiful work of art if we allow God to write it.
LAYOUT ARTIST: I recently moved to Northern Virginia – close to our nation’s capital, which gives me lots of fun opportunities for exploring. My years of serving as an administrative assistant in several ministries have given me opportunity to develop my love for layout design. I also enjoy cooking, traveling and spending time with my nieces and nephews. It is my desire to use the gifts God has given me to bless others.
PHOTOGRAPHER: I am 19 and live in the heart of the Midwest in Memphis, Missouri. I'm find more of who He created me to be. He has given me the personality and gifts of a-artist and I am learning to use my art--whether it be in exceptional coffee, lifestyle photography, professional baking, or a host of other outlets--to bless and show Christ's love. I am a broken free-spirit learning what it means to be a bond-slave to Christ.
PROOFING TEAM: I am a Canadian who has spent nine years in the Caribbean and now lives in Thailand. I am a collector of facts and ideas, so I am fascinated by the details of God's big world of nature, culture, thought, and much more. That’s partly what fuels my love of reading. And perhaps it’s the love of reading that has grown my appreciation for precision and accuracy in written communication.
PROOFING TEAM: Although I’m a small-town Colorado girl at heart, I’m currently teaching school in Los Angeles. I love connecting with friends of all ages, playing with words through writing and copy-editing, puttering around in the kitchen, devouring a good book, and sipping iced coffee. One of my biggest joys is seeing other daughters of the King walk in His truth and goodness.
PROOFING TEAM: My home address is now Indiana after living several years in Thailand as an English teacher. I’m currently working as a florist, and finishing my degree in Counseling. I love connecting with people and hearing about what God is doing in their lives.
