DOZ Chronicles

DOZ is an acronym for Daughters of Zion, and DOZ Chronicles is a series based on actual events experienced by women who have one thing in common: Zion. Names and locations have been changed to protect all persons concerned, but in and of themselves, the stories are true.

When DOZ Magazine began operations in 2009, our true stories comprised a section within the magazine. However, readers quickly grew tired of reading the stories piece by piece and came to absolutely loathe the phrase “to be continued”, so we created a separate magazine dedicated to telling our inspirational stories in their entirety in a series. This magazine was known as the DOZ (True Story) Magazine, and it had a huge effect on readers. It went out of circulation for a few years, but due to popular demand, it has now returned and today is known as the DOZ Chronicles.
