Thanks for joining us at Significant Living. We are a faith-based magazine focused on celebrating life and faith for today's Christian! We also have quite a history!

In January 2007, Total Living Network (TLN) put to press their first issue of Significant Living, with stories of inspiration and trust in Jesus. From there it has only grown. In January 2009, TLN acquired Today's Christian from Christianity Today International. Today's Christian has a rich heritage all the way back to 1963, when Ken Taylor (the writer of The Living Bible and founder of Tyndale House Publishers) started The Christian Reader. His vision was to offer stories of faith and hope in a digest format. The combination of the two magazines has left Significant Living with a solid foundation.

In January 2011, Significant Living was acquired by Jones Publishing, Inc, a small business located in central Wisconsin. Jones Publishing is a family-owned business, owned and managed jointly by Joe, his wife, Maggie, and his son, Ryan. They pride themselves in the company’s small-town values, like trustworthiness, integrity, and commitment. But it has attracted a staff of world-class talent, including writers, editors, and technical support that are the top names in their fields. Currently we publish six other publications along with Significant Living. They include The Crafts Report, Fired Arts and Crafts,DOLLS, Teddy Bear Review,Piper Owner Society, and Cessna Owner Organization.

Ryan (President of Jones Publishing and executive publisher of Significant Living) and his wife, Diana, have been living for Jesus for the past 16 years. Ryan has served as a pastor and worship leader, and is currently a Master of Divinity student at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. After graduating with her Masters Degree in microbiology, Diana has lived as a laboratory manager, pastor's wife and editor, and is currently a homeschooling mother of seven children.

In July 2013, Dan Brownell joined our staff, assuming the editor position of Significant Living. Diana’s promotion from editor to publisher will allow her to focus her energy on promoting and expanding the magazine, while affording more time for her growing family. Dan brings both a ministry and publishing background to Significant Living. He spent seven years on the mission field in South Korea, where he was a junior high and high school English teacher and his wife Cathy was the school librarian. Since then, he has spent nearly 15 years as a book and magazine writer and editor. Dan and Cathy have two children: Elizabeth, who is pursuing a degree in graphic design, and Joshua, a homeschooler and avid NASCAR fan. Dan is very grateful for Diana’s superb stewardship of Significant Living and her passion for the Lord, which shows through in every page of the magazine.

We are so delighted to have this opportunity to share with you what God is doing in the lives of others around the globe. Our desire is that you would be encouraged in your faith and in God's ability to reach through to you, no matter where you are at, so that you may be strengthened to fulfill the call of God on your life.

To God be the Glory!
