Lilies in the City is an e-zine designed to minister to young women, by sharing how to maintain purity in any unfavorable environment. Through insightful articles covering every facet of life, women will learn practical information on how to live a Christ-centered life in a corrupt world. This e-zine is a collaborative effort of women from various walks of life, adding an extra special touch.

Our Aim

“The lily on the lake strikes its roots down deep beneath the surface of rubbish and slime, and through its porous stem draws those properties that will aid its development, and bring to light its spotless blossom to repose in purity on the bosom of the lake. It refuses all that would tarnish and mar its spotless beauty.”

Our Mission

Aren’t there enough blogs, newsletters, and magazines geared to women; do we really need another one? Yes, it is true that there is no shortage of reading material. Some are even Christian in nature. But we believe that Lilies in the City brings something different to the table. This e-zine is not simply about education but also transformation. We recognise that we are in the closing hours of earth’s history, and living life as usual is not enough. The power of the gospel has long been talked about but now it must be practically demonstrated. Lilies in the City will present not a theory of religion but how to live it out in everyday life. Our aim is to make the religion of the Bible practical.
