REVIEW: Alethia Writing Magazine for Christian Teens

Alethia Writing Magazine
Price:  $26 year
Ages:  13-19
Website:  HERE!
I say: Nice for writing teens!

Alethia Writing Magazine Fall 2011 edition was received for review without monetary compensation in exchange for my opinions as part of the TOS CREW. My opinions are my own.

We got a full color beautiful magazine of quality production from the USPS. I gave this magazine to my writing daughter who said, "This is nice!" And so we began pouring through it.  Inside you will find well written short stories and poetry from teenagers who are writing with a Christian worldview point. This is so refreshing! There is encouragement for writing teens as well in a Writer's Challenge with a biblical proverb and a picture of which the teen can chose to write either a poem or a story that shows the proverb as true. This edition's proverb is Proverbs 11:8.  Submission deadline is Oct 15, 2011 to submit to sure to put "Writer's Challenge Fall 2011" in the subject line.  Also include which challenge!

Also this mag has little advertising which is refreshing to see so that teens are not over stimulated but rather articles concerning authors and illustrators. I loved seeing the art work of other teens and reading their works!

Wanna see a previous issue?  Here ya GO!

GiveAway & Review: Carmex NEW Flavors~whoot!

I received a great package from Carmex in exchange for my honest opinions~and WE LOVE CARMEX! In fact, my mother and daughter grabbed up the tubes before I got to even hardly get it opened.  My mom~retired senior of our home said, "it's really smooth and makes your lips feel great!" Mom liked the Lime and my daughter loved the vanilla~we also received a picnic blanket which is a cool blanket with POCKETS that folds up in a cool way~just right for summer time fun, which is just what we did with it! It's pretty with bright pretty stripes with the Carmex logo.  Pretty NEAT!

Now the cool thing is that I get to give one of you this cool kit consisting of
  • 1 Carmex Lime Twist click stick
  • 1 Carmex Vanilla click stick
  • 1 Certified Awesome Picnic blanket* (it's really cute)
