One Year Anniversary ~ Declaring a Purpose



This month marks the one year anniversary of this blog and I wanted to share the personal intent of it's contents. I grew up reading teen magazine which encouraged "making self happy", masculine and immodest wardrobes, techniques on how to paint your face, shallow articles about boys, celebrity gossip, worldly glamour and all the while showcasing super skinny models who lacked a healthy and wholesome glow. The influence they had on my life was tremendous and the mistakes I made (and often regret) are there to haunt me.
My desire is to encourage godly role models for mothers and maidens who can inspire us toward love and service to our Creator.  I wanted to create a "magazine" of sorts for females of all ages which showcase biblical women and content, Christian biographies of the past, feminine fashions that inspire a love for history, godly art, pure poetry and anything else that will enhance the worldview and knowledge of the believing woman.


The goal is to print "good things" (Titus 2:3) instead of the shallow articles thrown at women such as "how best to apply eye shadow". We want to cultivate an accomplished Christian woman with subjects such as science, nature, history, femininity, while exalting the art of homemaking (Titus 2). We want to nurture the life of the virtuous women (Proverbs 31) in lieu of the worldly woman (Proverbs 5). I hope we have created something of pleasure and purpose and I thank you for being a part of the plan…


"Oh, girls! girls! life is so great, so wonderful, so full of possibilities, that none of us can afford to be anything but what is good and pure and true! Let us make the perfect rose an emblem of our womanhood, and strive that its fragrance shall bless all who come in contact with it."

~ Mabel Hale, Excerpt from Beautiful Girlhood
