Who We Are

Chaverah Magazine cares about uplifting women and helping them in their journey of life through Christian friendships and a growing relationship with the living God.

Chaverah Magazine began in 2008 as MyFriendDebbie.com as a community of friends and writers who wanted to share encouragement, inspiration, and helpful information of their life in Christ with others.

Today, Chaverah Magazine cares about uplifting women and helping them in their journey of life through Christian friendships and a growing relationship with the living God.

The word Chaverah means, “Friend of a sister-type” in the Hebrew language. Our Judeo-Christian heritage links us with the ancient Hebrew culture of the Bible, and our heart for God, through His Son, Jesus Christ, prepares us to celebrate, with contemporary worship, our wonderful life in Him, as we love God with all of our hearts, and love others as ourselves.

So many times as women, wives, and mothers, we feel alone with our questions, decisions, ideas and struggles. Even in a crowd, we can be longing for some answers, someone who understands without judging, and someone to give sound advice and suggestions. We need a friend.

But good friends are hard to find. They can be fickle, moody, busy or bossy. They can grow apart in common interests, differ greatly on core values, or move away. Consequently, we find ourselves in need of a good friend who’s faithful, loyal, likeable, funny, sincere, helpful, and encouraging.

Interestingly, statistics show that Americans have fewer friends than ever before. The number of close friends has dropped in the last couple of decades from 3 close friends, to just 1 close friend for the overwhelming majority.

Thus, the need for Christian friends to come to you! We will provide a host of friends that you will grow to love. They are funny, faithful, sincere and true! They’re just like you! Why not enjoy a friend or two, for the journey of life!
