New chapters to write, exciting adventures await! Six months passed at lightning speed from my July issue announcement of stepping down as the publisher of Forsyth Family Magazine. I am humbled by the opportunity I’ve had to bring this publication to you. To birth it and nurture it over the years. To share all the untold stories of new and old businesses and organizations, the many amazing charities and their events and the fantastic people in our community. It has been my honor and joy to share with you over the years!
I want to take this final moment to thank my husband and daughters for their support over the years. Switching from a corporate job to being self-employed had its pros and cons, but they’ve always been there for me along the way. Just like the day I felt the presence of God telling me to choose the journey of starting Forsyth Family over taking a lesser position at Hanesbrands, I feel his presence all around me as I approach this new season.
A final thank-you to the magnificent team behind bringing this magazine to you each month. I wish I had enough room to call you each by name and mention all your wonderful contributions. Thank you to all the wonderful advertising partners I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know over the years and, with your support, has made Forsyth Family possible.
I pass the torch to Brooke Johnson Eagle, current publisher of Forsyth Woman. I’ve watched her grow from a sweet young girl running around church to a confident go-getter. No doubt Brooke will easily fill my shoes, and I look forward to all she will do to enhance Forsyth Family in the coming years!
The December cover features Victory Junction. What a wonderful organization to feature as my last month as publisher. It was featured as our cover in the September 2008 issue many years ago with Kyle and Pattie Petty sharing their late son, Adam’s dream of a place like Victory Junction with our readers.
As I close out my final “From the Heart,” I wish everyone a blessed Christmas holiday and Happy New Year! 2023 will certainly be an exciting and busy year for our family as we celebrate the marriage of Morgan and Deep and new news that Briana and Jonathan are expecting! WOW, a new son-in-law and baby to love all in the same year!
