Southern Child Magazine

Y'all know I love magazines, and Southern Child Magazine is one that I hope you will check out!  It is full of great articles and  photography, while also staying true to it's original it's mission, "to inform and educate parents and care givers, to provide attractive affordable advertising to family based businesses and to help the hundreds of thousands of children in foster care find forever, loving families."  It is really inspiring to see a magazine trying so hard to help children that truly need a forever home.  When the publisher, Amy,  found out there are over 581,000 children in the foster care system and that only 20 percent of those who age out of the system actually make it (the remaining 80 percent end up on the street, in jail, or dead), she felt she had to do something and thus Southern Child Magazine was born! 

I was honored when Southern Child published 2 of my articles in this month's issue  (Here's to shameless self-promotion!)  On page 23 you will find an article I wrote about a "Super Southern Child" who also is doing his best to give back to others through his foundation, The Nickelby Project.  I also have an article to help you get motivated to get your Spring Cleaning on!  So, head over and check out this great magazine and sign up for a free online subscription!
