Ever since I was a teenager, I remember looking at magazines for women in the shops and being frustrated at how over-sexualised they were. I began to notice the unrealistic expectations on looks and body image, the gossip and the rumours. The message I received through media and society growing up was that I was not good enough unless I was having great sex with someone, that I was not worth enough unless a man wanted me, that I was not pretty enough unless I went on that diet, that I was not cool enough unless I bought those shoes….that I was not ENOUGH! But I believe that is the beauty of the gospel; in Jesus Christ, we are ENOUGH.
Flourishing Heart Magazine was created from a desire to bring worth and dignity back to women; to bring hope and encouragement to your everyday. The magazine is a collaboration of articles, real-life stories and creativity from people who inspire me. People of all ages and all walks of life – for I believe we can all learn from each other. You will find real conversations around health and wellbeing, shedding light on topics such as healthy body image and mental health. You will be inspired by authentic life stories from young and older women, and be taken on an adventure through the pages and beyond when we share places to go, things to do and people to see! Each edition has something to pull out, something to give and something to decorate with to encourage and inspire your generosity, hospitality, vision and creativity.
The magazine is made to be shown, shared and loved.
