Shining Stars ~ Magazine Review and…a GIVEAWAY!



 Dear readers, I am so delighted to share this review with you today…

When Hannah, the lovely editress and founder of Shining Stars magazine, contacted me a while back asking if I would be willing to do a review for her, I happily agreed...

…And I was just thrilled when I discovered a few back issues in my mailbox and I eagerly pored over each page…

If you are a daughter~at~home, a potential daughter~at~home or mother~at~home, you will

appreciate and enjoy these beautiful magazines…each article encourages and inspires women both young and old to pursue beautiful, Biblical womanhood (even when it is difficult…in fact, especially when it is difficult!) and I was blessed by what the various authors had to share…


There are so few young women who have chosen stay~at~home~daughterhood, and thus it is very refreshing to read of like-minded young ladies and be encouraged to keep on walking this road…


Our homes are so important and we are blessed to have the responsibility of keeping them…and learning how to keep them.  I love what a fellow blogger shared with her readers…


“I firmly believe that the home is a beautiful canvas for biblical hospitality, servanthood and discipleship.”


Miss Jen, Blessed Femina

Shining Stars magazines are printed quarterly, and to subscribe, visit the website over here...

I originally thought these magazines were downloadable, and I was simply thrilled to realise that each magazine is printed on quality paper and mailed, so I can sip my coffee and page through a magazine…  I love being able to turn an actual page…  {{happy sigh}}


Each magazine has a different theme…there are also regular columns such as…


...A Peek into my Hope Chest

Being Beautifiers

Crafts in the Home

Healthy Living

Heroines in History

Little Ladies (for younger readers)

Meet a Star

Penpal Place…

…And so much more!

I love what Hannah has to say in the beginning of each magazine…


“…This magazine is made up of submissions from people who, in their understanding of Scripture, may “walk their walk” a little differently than you or I…”


There are certainly things which I may not agree with in these magazines…for instance, I don’t just wear skirts, but it is very true that we do indeed all walk the road given to us by the Lord, and yes…mine may look quite different to yours...  But I think it is important that we as Believers do what the Lord has called us as individuals to do, and it may not be the same for everyone…

Our main goal should be to share the Gospel with unbelievers…

I will most definitely be subscribing to Shining Stars, and I would encourage other young ladies to do the same…and if you are an aunt, mother or grandmother of a young lady, why don’t you gift her with a subscription this Christmas?  I know she would be blessed and inspired!

Oh, we need so much encouragement as we walk along this road, and it is wonderful to discover this in Shining Stars

Now, I have a truly wonderful surprise for you, dear friends…Hannah is sweetly offering one of my readers a year’s subscription to Shining Stars Magazine which is four issues…

Isn’t that delightful…?
