Families First magazine is the magazine of Mothers’ Union.
Stay up to date with issues that families face today.
In it are the stories of real families and individuals experiencing family life. So for example, rather than plying readers with stories of why breast is possibly best, they tell stories of those many women who, for whatever reason, are not able to have children and so cannot even make that decision. Rather than showcase a pick of the best retirement homes in the area they look at how people cope when a loved one is bereaved after a lifetime together.
No one likes being told what to do and so they try and steer clear of 'experts' and talk to people who have really been there, lived there and walked in those shoes. Then we ask them how they coped and share those experiences with readers and that way build each other up. Testimonies are biblical. And we put God first.
But there's a light-hearted side too! There are also regular pieces on wellbeing, teenagers, children's arts and crafts pages, film, book and music reviews, competitions, puzzles and prizes.
Profits from sales of Families First magazine support the work of Mothers’ Union in fighting poverty, injustice and tackling family issues.
