Hello, my name is Nothando, you can call me Nono for short :). I am a full-time youth & family women ministry Shepherd at the Port Elizabeth Church of Christ in South Africa. Before full-time ministry, I was a Lifestyle Journalist & Marketing Strategist who enjoyed writing for local magazines. Loved Girl Mag was birthed from my passion to lead women to Christ, and the joy I get from connecting with women through writing. Underlying these passions is my desperate desire for women to understand God's undying, unconditional, everlasting love for them. Some of the articles you will read on this magazine are pages from my journey of learning about God’s love for me. Discovering His love has transformed my view of myself, of others and love altogether, and I pray you will find the same grace through this magazine. I am nowhere near fully grasping the full extent of His love but I hope you will join me on this journey as I continue to learn and grow in it. Apart from the above, I am a lover of coffee, a good book, travel and pugs.
