2004-2012: A definite instruction, a complete season, an unchanging message:
“Prepare the way of our LORD JESUS CHRIST!”
In 2004, Lindie Gouws entered the publishing and media sector, not by personal design, but by a definite calling she received whilst in the corporate world. Having been approached to be the editor of a national Christian magazine, Lindie undertook this position. Subsequently, Lindie received a clear vision for MY World and having worked in collaboration with various other Christian media outlets as well as interdenominational Church leaders, Lindie commenced the journey to publish the 12 series magazine issues in MY World. The season in MY World proved to become a vital part, foundation and preparation for the subsequent seasons to unfold in Lindie’s life as well as in other parties involved in MY World. MY World was founded as a printed magazine, a word in season, a prophetic voice. Published in South Africa, MY World was distributed internationally. The unique theme and publication shape (a square) was inspired by the WORD of GOD – Revelation 21: 19,20 (The twelve foundation stones in the city wall of the New Jerusalem). A unique theme for a unique publication for a unique season. The first issue was a key issue and thereafter the 12 issues were named according to the foundation stones in the city wall. The theme enhanced MY World as an aesthetically beautiful Spirit Filled voice, declaring, “Prepare the way of our LORD!” After completion of the 12 magazine issues, a compilation bundle was published in the form of a hard cover Celebration Bundle coffee table book. During the life span of MY World more than 500 000 magazines were published and distributed by the MY World team internationally. We celebrate the life of MY World and know that the WORD and the MESSAGE lives on.
