I joined a local writer's group after the 1st of the year and two meetings a month are not enough! Having a lot of fun. 

One member wrote a short story (as a writing prompt just for her) and each sentence began with the sequential letter of the alphabet. Sci-fi futuristic .. very creative. 

Anyway, I'm writing life stories. The last one I shared with the group got a yes for publication after I revise one paragraph. Their suggestion was to query Guidepost magazine. 

Anyone have other suggestions for a similar publication?

Hi- I have been to many Christian Writer's Conferences and they suggest a guidebook.  Christian Writer's Market Guide- by Sally Stuart- it is usually published yearly with info on publishing companies, magazine publishers guidelines and info on what they are looking for, specific info, contact info, addresses and all- its wonderful.   You can ask your local public library to order a copy if they are open to suggestions for buying or you can get your librarian to order a copy on Inner Library Loan.  A very helpful guide.

Blessings, Jody M
