I while ago I was contacted by a woman who had a dream of starting her own magazine. One that would help inspire families by sharing good ideas and inspiring how-tos.

How many of us have had a dream like that and put it carefully on a shelf in our minds for later…some day we will get to it, right?

Well, this woman decided to make it happen. And make it happen right now. She asked me to write an article for it. She told me about the blog they already had up and running and it sucked me right in (click here to check it out…and there’s a cool photo contest here). I’m always up for being part of something that has the potential to build up families and make them stronger, so I agreed to write the requested article. She assigned me the topic of “Being Enough” which sure has made me think.

A lot.

I’ll have to write more about it when I get a minute.

The magazine made it’s big debut a couple weeks ago and it is gorgeous: The photography is inspiring and it is filled with great ideas. Here’s a little recap of some of the stuff in there from the editor: This issue is chalked full of fun articles. Come be inspired to get reading with your children. Gather new recipes that you’ll want to try out for yourself. Get to know Denise Demarchis of Matilda Jane a bit better. Find some uplifting words from Shawni Pothier on “Being Enough.” Read of the giving adventures of families in Atlanta as they went out to feed the homeless. All this and many more articles that touch upon raising and teaching our children. There is even a fun teen section where we meet some real teens and talk about their talents as well as some fun DIY projects. Each page of the magazine is filled with beautiful and useful content, never being interrupted with ads. Only useful content that can strengthen you and your families.

I get to give away TEN digital copies of the magazine.

So enter a comment to win one of these beauties. And if you want two chances to win, “like” them on Facebook (here) and come back to enter another comment.

I’ll announce the winners on Saturday morning.
