Review~Creation Illustrated magazine

Creation Illustrated magazine has been called by some readers the 'Christian answer to National Geographic'. It has been published quarterly for 19 years by a homeschooling family!  Here is the Mission Statement from the website:

"Our purpose is to share the wonders of God's creation. By revealing fresh insights of His infinite wisdom, gentle touch, undeniable justice, redeeming love, and flawless design, pure truth shall bring renewed peace. Each part of this publication is offered as a reprieve from the daily rigors of life so that all can look to the future with unbridled gratitude and hope."

My family was sent four copies of Creation Illustrated to review.  I must say, I was impressed right off the bat!  The covers are thick and glossy, and the pages inside are full of gorgeous photos!!  Each edition of Creation Illustrated is divided into three sections:
*Creation Illustrated in Nature
*Creation Illustrated in Scripture
*Creation Illustrated in Living

Besides the beautiful pictures, Creation Illustrated includes stories, lessons, poetry, recipes, scripture, contests and more!  I really liked the instructional guide at the back of each edition, making this magazine perfect for homeschooling or family devotionals. Creation Illustrated is for all ages, and everyone enjoyed looking and reading.  This is not a magazine you toss out when you are finished reading it!

Right now, you can get a free sample issue at the Creation Illustrated website.  Subscription prices are:
1 year (4 issues): $19.95
2 years (8 issues): $37.95
3 years (12 issues): $53.95
Also, you will save $5 on your subscription if you pay by credit card.  There are shipping fees of $5/year for Canadian and $10/year for foreign subscriptions.
