I recently found a {new to me} magazine which I just adore! I think you will too. Maybe you've already found this gem of a magazine! If you have, lucky you! Click here to be directed to their website.

"a first world-class Christian lifestyle magazine."

Why I like no, make that love it!

The first thing I noticed was that this is a really cool magazine-it's like Country Living meets Christianity in a funky, crafty, really uplifting and encouraging kind of way. Wow, that was a mouthful.

Inside the current issue are articles by:
Max Lucado, Dr. James Dobson, Joyce Meyer, Dr. Gary Smalley, and Janet Parshall.

Each issue of Life:Beautiful contains 12 recurring sections:

· Rest Stop: simple suggestions for everyday life
· Finds: creative gift ideas
· Crafts: projects for family and home
· Dinnertime: delicious recipes
· Good Stewards: advice on smart money management
· Order: ideas to simplify your life
· Body: practical help with exercise and nutrition
· Projects: unique items to make for the home
· Lessons: Bible teaching
· Work: ways to make a difference in the world
· Travel: vacation planning resources
· Media: reviews of books, movies and music

Their Mission:
Life:Beautiful is a national, inter-denominational, Christian lifestyle magazine that celebrates an active, integrated faith. Built on a foundation of biblical teaching and encouragement for spiritual growth, Life:Beautiful offers relevant information and community for Christian women.

The pages of Life:Beautiful showcase everyday experiences and activities, such as parenting, cooking, decorating, teaching, working, volunteering, resting, traveling and offering hospitality—all of which can be used to share the joy of the Lord.

Their Objective:
Life:Beautiful is dedicated to delivering the uncompromised message of the Bible with excellence is journalism, photography, and editorial and art direction in order to offer a world-class faith magazine to the masses.

Their Belief Statement:
Life:Beautiful is published on a foundation of the following beliefs:
1. We believe the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are inspired by God and inerrant in the original writings, and that they are the supreme and final authority in faith and life.

2. We believe in one God, the Creator who eternally exists in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin, Mary, and that He was and remains both God and man.

3. We believe that God created Adam and Eve in His own divine image; that they sinned and incurred physical and spiritual death, which is separation from God; and, as a result of Adam’s sin, all humans are now born with a sinful nature and stand guilty before God.

4. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins and that all who believe in Him and receive Him as personal Lord and Savior are born again of the Holy Spirit and become children of God.

5. We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into Heaven, and in His present life there for us as High Priest and Advocate.

6. We believe in the blessed hope of the personal and imminent return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells and gives spiritual life to all believers, enables them to understand biblical truth, empowers them to live godly lives, and equips them for service and witness.

7. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting punishment of the unsaved.

**I got my issue at Jo-Anns, it is also currently 10% off the $4.95 cover price.


  1. I love this magazine! I thought it was so refreshing and encouraging. I wish it came out every month!

  2. I wish it came out every month too Angie! {versus the 4 times a year that it does come out.} Oh well, it will be something to look forward to!
