Announcing a New Editor for Today

By Steven Koster

March 12, 2019


I have some news to share with you about a behind the scenes transition here at Today.

Our Managing Editor, Eleanor Lamsma, is retiring after many years of faithful service with the Today devotional. Eleanor has not only guided the development of our devotionals, built relationships with pastors, and edited copy with an eagle’s eye, but she has also served the wider ministries of ReFrame Media and Back to God Ministries International with distinction. Her steady hand and mentoring wisdom shall be missed among the Today, ReFrame, and Back to God staff.

Succeeding Eleanor as Today’s Managing Editor is my colleague, Rev. Jeff Bulthuis. After many years in a thriving parish congregation, Jeff joined the ReFrame team last year as our Prayer Team Leader. He has brought a theologian's mind, an English major’s ear, and a pastor’s heart to ReFrame. For the past year, he has guided our follow-up and prayer ministry, and he will now focus on cultivating opportunities for readers like you to dwell in God’s Word through Today.

We are grateful to God for both of these mission leaders, and pray for God’s blessings through this transition.

May you be refreshed, refocused, and renewed in God’s Word!
