Even though there’s still snow on the ground, and the wind still blows wildly some days, spring really is just around the corner. I can’t wait . . . how about you? Here at Vintage Mama’s Cottage we are working on some fun new creative projects to share with you in the next few weeks. For now, here’s one that I just finished up. RUBY magazine is one of my favorite “jobs” because I get to share inspirational articles and devotionals by some great Christian writers. Take a look and you’ll see what I mean!
I hope you will join us this month. In this issue of RUBY magazine you will find creative inspiration for your home and family. There are also inspirational articles, devotionals, poetry, short stories, book reviews, crafts and recipes. So many resources that will be a blessing and encouragement to you every day of the month!
WHAT’S IN THIS ISSUE?
Be sure to read “Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing,” by Robert Robinson, a hymn story written by Diana Leagh Matthews who shares a historical story about some of our most loved hymns in every issue of RUBY magazine. You won’t want to miss the article by Theresa Begin, “Make Your Own Beautiful Chalk Painted Mason Jars.” Read an excerpt from the latest historical fiction novel from Pat Jeanne Davis, “When Valleys Bloom Again: A Novel of World War II.”
FOR YOUR HOME AND FAMILY
You will also find St. Patrick’s Day Fun Ideas for Your Home and Family from Vintage Mama’s Cottage. There are also recipes for Irish Soda Bread by Jeanne Doyon and Quick and Easy Monkey Bread from Theresa Begin. And for a special St. Patrick’s Day dinner, there’s a recipe for Farfalle with Spinach from Joan Leotta. And don’t forget the “Kids’ Corner” where we have a fun activity for kids each month. There is also a short story by Shara Bueler-Repka. This month the story is, “Rider in the Night.” Great reading fun for kids of all ages.
You will be inspired and encouraged by “How We Stand When the Winds Blow,” by Sharon L. Patterson. Don’t miss “My Greatest Need,” by Lisa J. Radcliff, and “Contentment in a Season of Blooming” by Jehn Kubiak. You can also read encouraging words on setting and achieving goals in “A Goal without a Plan is Just a Dream” by Nina Newton. You can also find inspirational poetry by Rejetta Morse and Norma C. Mesoe, as well as a sweet story by Nancy Frantel about her little boy sharing his toys with his friends: “Compassion Inside.”
Be encouraged by the devotional, “Temptation” by Nells Wasilewski and read the amazing story of “Faith on Trial” by Adwoba Addo-Boateng about how God gave her “the most precious gift from God.” There are so many great articles in this issue of RUBY magazine!
