Hi, my name is Nicole Danswan and I want to welcome you to the Christian Woman tribe. I am the co-founder of Initiate Media with my husband, Matt Danswan.
Matt and I founded Initiate Media way back in 2003 when I was in my mid-twenties. A lot has happened since then. For one, I went from being five months married to now a mother of four. I’m still not sure how we have both managed to build this company and raise the children at the same time, but with God, all things are possible.
Matt and I acquired Christian Woman from an Australian company called 36 Media. Christian Woman at the time was celebrating its 50th year in print, so now it is literally a 65 year-old ministry. In fact our journey has been documented and Matt has released a book through our Ark House Press book publishing division titled NOT Business As Usual.
I have always been our company’s art, and more recently marketing director, but as our company is well established and I have some great people on my design team, I have felt God calling me closer to the women’s side of the Christian marketplace.
At heart, while I am a ministry woman, business is my love and calling. I don’t propose to be a pastor, but I do have a pastor’s heart in wanting to help Christian women to be all they are meant to be.
I am also heading up Christian Woman & Co (CW&Co). This will launch in early 2019, so stay tuned.
I have a great vision for the Christian Woman website. With us no longer having print editions, all of our energy is being directed towards the site you’re on right now.
So be blessed, and remember to sign up to our email newsletter, or follow us on social media so that together, we can create an amazing group of women who go on to influence and change the world around us.
