Families First is the magazine of Mothers’ Union, an outreach charity led by 4 million members dedicated to supporting families worldwide.
Families First magazine is a tool through which we share the trials and testimonies of families and individuals touched at every level of family life - from birth to death. Rather than plying our readers with stories of why breast is possibly best; we tell the 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 we 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 we 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 we share those experiences with our readers and we believe that’s how we can build each other up. Testimonies are biblical. And we put God first.
But there's a light-hearted side too! We also have regular pieces on wellbeing, teenagers, children's arts and crafts pages, film, book and music reviews, GREAT competitions and puzzles and prizes.
Families First is available in selected branches of WH Smith, Sainsburys, Londis and selected newsagents in Britain and Ireland or visit Mothers' Union's online shop to subscribe or to place a bulk order at discount price.
