Welcome + a giveaway!

Photo2 Welcome to the brand new Lovely Thoughts site, which as you can see has morphed into an official online Christian magazine for young women. After a lot of praying and discussion with some trusted advisers, friends and readers, I decided to change the name of this site from Lovely Thoughts to Tirzah.

Tirzah (pronounced TEER-zuh) is Hebrew for "she is my delight." Ever since I heard this word for the first a few months ago, it hasn't left my mind. The more work I did on this new site, the more Tirzah seemed to fit with our mission: to empower a generation of Esthers for such a time as this. 

Learn more about how this website came along and what you can expect from us in the future in my letter from the editor here. 

So, if you still subscribe to my old blog @ yelenabosovik.com, please make sure to re-sign up with your email in the "follow" box in the bottom right section of this window, otherwise you won't receive the email notifications when new stories are published.

Also, if you've bookmarked this page, please make sure to re-bookmark it with our new url: tirzahmag.com. Plus, you can follow us on social media via the buttons at the top of the page.

Although our name and site design/layout have changed, the old content is still here and we will continue to write about the stuff that matters: living a set-apart life worthy of our calling by the King of Kings. We'll be posting content 2-3 times per week (apart from this week when we'll be posting every day to celebrate the launch of this site!).

What else is new?


The Princess Academy! This is the part I am most excited to share with y'all. Ever since I was a little girl, I've dreamed of something like this - a place (even if it's virtual) where I can bond with other young women who strive to live a set-apart life - the kind of life worthy of our calling as daughters of the King of Kings. A school where the classes teach stuff that matters - subjects relating to matters of the heart and spiritual encouragement.

Although I have big dreams for the Princess Academy, we're starting small and simple and we'll see where the Lord takes us. First, starting now, you can book a brew session with me (I can't wait to start these with y'all and hear all about your hopes and dreams - we're going to make amazing things happen) and stay tuned for developments of our first e-course to be released in March.

Plus, check out The Movement page to find out how you can spread some of the goodness and lovely thoughts into the world around you.

Finally, please give a warm welcome to Miss Kimberly, aka Kimmy, our new managing editor. She'll be blogging here regularly (in addition to her own blog here) and helping oversee our contributors and guest bloggers to the site.

Now the fun part: our very first giveaway to celebrate our re-launch!
