We’ve been expecting you.

If you’re visiting this site for the very first time, we’re thrilled to have you onboard. If you’ve been following YMI over the past six years (that’s right, it’s been a long time), welcome back.

We are elated to share with you our brand new site. As you will quickly observe, it’s more than just a fresh layout—our name has changed and we have brand new content categories to share with you. Read on to find out the rationale behind our changes. We know it looks long, but it’s worth it.

What’s YMI?
YMI stands for the question—Why am I? We decided to drop the “blogging” from our previous name “YMIblogging” because we realized that quite simply, we’re not just about blogging. There’s so much more to a young person’s life and we want to help you wrap your head around all that you’re experiencing in life. Why am I doing all these? Why am I feeling this way? Why am I alive?

And beyond asking the why, we recognize that the purpose behind why we do, think, and feel in the way we do must be for tHIS reaSON (That’s right, we live for His Son Jesus Christ). So along with our new name, YMI, our new logo will be accompanied by this tagline “for tHIS reaSON”.

What’s new?
In addition to our popular devotionals (Our Daily Bread and Our Daily Journey) as well as our contributions segment (featuring writings, songs, poems, art, etc. by young people), we feel that it’s time to expand our offerings with these new categories:

  • Current
    Read about the latest trends, world events, entertainment news, and things that matter to young people. Explore what’s trending through a biblical perspective.
  • Topics
    In line with our monthly themes, we bring to you articles by our YMI writers to encourage, challenge, and inspire you to think about your own experiences.
  • Features
    This is a brand-new section brought to you by the YMI team featuring Christian individuals from different countries, backgrounds, and age groups answering the YMI (Why am I?) question.

Get involved
If you have a desire to make God’s Word known through your God-given talent (be it writing, singing, drawing, you name it!), we would love to help you achieve that. We would also love to hear your views about the new site. Drop us a note here.

In His Love,
The YMI Team
