Bloom! Magazine: An Online Magazine for Christian Teen Girls

The first issue of Bloom! Magazine came out today. It is a magazine for Christian teens written by Christian teens and is absolutely free. I told the staff that I would review it for them and possibly interview one of them for my blog, but I wanted to wait until I read the magazine in its entirety. I am happy to say that I am more than enthusiastic about the results, the girls did a great job. I don't mean that they did a great job for teenagers--they did a great job for anyone.

The magazine covers topics like recipes, school (home schooled and not) tips, hairstyles, devotions, testimonies and interviews. I am very pleased that there are magazines like this that promote good values. I am appalled when I walk through the grocery store and see half naked women on the covers who have been airbrushed to the point that if you really stare at them, they proportionally don't even look like humans anymore (artists notice these things.) Tessa at Buttons 'N' Woodenspoons wrote a good post about this a while back.

The magazine is having a photography contest and takes submissions from girls between the ages 12-19. I know of many talented writers who should submit their writing (you know who you are. Yes, you.) I encourage everyone to share their knowledge and experiences with others. 

Check out the magazine and let them know what you think. I personally have to like it because one author used the term "world turned upside down," in her article--just kidding. :D

  2. Bron was just complaining about the fact that there are no magazines for girls her age that aren't morally objectionable. I'm going to have to let her know about this. THanks, Steph.

  3. Hello Stephanie! Remember you wrote on my blog, saying that 7 posts in 7 days on the same topic would be too much for Les Miserables Week? The "guidelines" have changed!!! =)
