Shine Brightly and Sparkle Girl's Magazine Review and GIVEAWAY!

As I raise my daughter in a culture where outward beauty is the focus, I am always on the lookout for opportunities to teach her that it's the inside that really makes her beautiful.

 Although she is still in preschool, I was excited to introduce my daughter to Sparkle and Shine Brightly, Christian magazine subscriptions for girls that provide godly insight into who God is, how he fits into our lives and how inward beauty allows us to shine as lights in this world.

Both Sparkle and Shine Brightly are ministries of GEMS Girl's Club, a non-denominational, international program who's mission is to "to help bring girls into a living, dynamic relationship with Jesus Christ... to see girls around the world actively and enthusiastically expressing love for God and others".

Sparkle magazine is geared towards girls grades 1-3 and includes life lesson stories, educational activities, guidance from God's word and an art and humor section. The layout is fun, colorful and really grabs your attention. Even my 3 year old loved looking through the graphics and pictures of the Sparkle magazine. I love that Sparkle focuses and age appropriate lessons such as honesty, listening and showing love to help our daughters cultivate inward beauty.

Shine Brightly is created for girls grades 4-8 and addresses relevant topics such as best friends, jealousy, cellphone use, and being a servant leader. These are all areas that we want our daughters to be mature in, and Shine Brightly addresses them in ways that girls can really identify with. The magazine is packed full of stories, word games, puzzles, craft ideas, fashion tips, life lessons and advice from godly role models. It's a great resource for parents and daughters alike.

Both magazines provide Christian influence for our daughters in a world that teaches otherwise. I loved the Bible verses, passages and principles throughout the pages that will surely leave a life long impact on the girls who are reading them.

 If you have a daughter, niece, granddaughter or friend who you think would benefit from either of these subscriptions, enter the giveaway below for a chance to win a subscription to either magazine! You can also visit the GEMS WebsiteFacebook Page, or  Shine Brightly and Sparkle Facebook  Page for more information.

Colossians 3:17 
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.


  1. This is such an awesome resource!

  2. There are so many things I want to teach my girls but the most important one to me is that they know Gods love for us and understand he created them exactly how he wants them to be. Knowing we are individually crafted by our creator will help them love themselves and others with less conditions and criticality.
