I recently had the opportunity....blessing....to review Creation Illustrated magazine.
I'm ashamed to say that I had never heard of this publication prior to reviewing it. When it arrived and I opened the envelope, I literally gasped aloud! Two words....lovely and refreshing. The photography is astounding and the writing is purely inspirational! Take a look at just the covers of this past years magazines:
You can see how inspiring the photography is- just from the covers alone! Would you like to peek inside, as well?
That's right- there's a yummy segment on food-complete with recipes!
And who doesn't love a fabulous animal article??!!
I was already totally impressed with this magazine and it's uplifting message, which I had grown so unaccustomed to thru periodical media, of encouragement and confidence in God as our Creator.... then I read about the publishers on their website...
"Creation Illustrated is published quarterly (beginning in Fall 1993) as a private, nonprofit, non-denominationally owned ministry dedicated to the eternal impact of sharing Biblical truth through the blessings of God's creation.
The editors and publishers are a Christian couple, Tom and Jennifer Ish, who homeschooled their daughter, Melissa, and have dedicated their lives to serving God by providing positive choices in reading material for the whole family.
Mission Statement:Our purpose is to share the wonders of God's creation. By revealing fresh insights of His infinite wisdom, gentle touch, undeniable justice, redeeming love, and flawless design, pure truth shall bring renewed peace. Each part of this publication is offered as a reprieve from the daily rigors of life so that all can look to the future with unbridled gratitude and hope."
