I’m Janelle Knox, Founder of MICI and MICI Girls.
You know, this has never been About US or about me.
It has always been about you, and the message the Lord has given us at MICI to share; that you are created in His image, made with great intent and purpose.
It’s a message that whispers; He destined you before-all-time to find yourself fully alive in His presence and the plans and purposes He has for you. Alive to the truth that He has more than you could ask, dream or dare to imagine available to you and through you when you find your life in Him – and when you live your life solely – for Him.
It’s a message that understands the accolades of man will fade. That the silver and gold we are told to chase will require more of us than we desire to give – until we find our hearts further from Him in the pursuit of what we’re told will satisfy.
I’ve been there.
For far too long I chased the world’s version of success and discovered though I’d gained the world, I had forfeited my soul.
It doesn’t start there – but that’s generally where it ends.
And it’s there that He waits.
With His arms – lovingly abandoned to protocol or misconceptions – thrown wide, where He is ready to shower us again with His love, His grace, His tender mercies and His unending kindness.
He did it for me and I know He can do it for you too.
He found me lost and desperate. Lonely and unsure of my future. He had pursued me, through the darkest of midnight hours, through the storms and the uncharted roads of my desperate soul. Through the bitterness of my brokenness, He pursued me, knowing He could heal my fractured world and bring me life like I’d never known.
I have found the One my soul loves, and it’s my greatest hope and life’s pursuit to show Him to you.
For it is in Christ that we find out who we are and what we’re living for. (Ephesians1:11-12 The MSG)
That’s the essence of MICI.
That’s the heartbeat behind all we do whether in magazines, journals, devotionals or otherwise.
We’re here for you.
It is our hope that we’d do Him justice with every word we write and every story we tell.
It is our prayer that you would see Him through your mess and your pain. That He would whisper into the depths of your heart His great love for you through every detail crafted within the pages of MICI and MICI Girls. It is our prayer that you would come to discover, to realise and to see – that you are made in His very image. All the characteristics of God come alive in you when you place all the pieces of your heart and life in His hands.
That is who we are and why we do what we do.
The monthly and quarterly magazines are a love letter to you straight from Heaven’s heart.
Heaven-breathed pieces just for you.
