Your magazine stole my heart. I wandered by a magazine rack and it caught my eye. Without even opening it, I purchased it. I knew it was for me just by the first glimpse and the touch of the paper. Thank you for this amazing publication that makes me feel as if I am understood, as if it were made for only my eyes. Flipping through each page is a gift that I slowly savor with a cup of tea and on a cold morning. It’s a little piece of heaven in print.

While on vacation I stumbled upon what may be the greatest magazine ever. I actually walked past it 3 times and picked it up each time … I will admit the price tag scared me slightly because who pays $20 for a magazine? Well after the third time I considered it fate and decided to buy it. BEST DECISION EVER!

SO GORGEOUS!!! It's been a long time since I read every single page and savored a mag in the way I did Bella Grace. Congratulations. I can only imagine the hard work that went into it, and it totally came through. Beautiful, full of grace, love, creativity, and HEART. xoxo!!!!

I just picked up your second issue of Bella Grace and after reading this “soul catcher” magazine I will be ordering the first and third issues too! I love everything about this magazine. I have taken my time reading each article as I sit in my favorite chair. After reading each article, I sit back in my chair, close my eyes, and let my senses take over as I review what I have read. An important part of this experience is the feeling I get from touching the pages with my eyes closed. It’s as though I am soaking in the experience through my fingertips. Thank you for publishing this magazine. I look forward to future issues with spiritual anticipation.

I just LOVED Volume 1. An absolutely beautiful, inspirational, calming, relaxing book. It is a real keeper. Whenever I have the opportunity, I just love to soak in the tub and read. Reading Bella Grace just added to the experience—especially if it was during a stressful or otherwise trying time for me. It calmed me and gave me a happy life to my spirits. Thank you for this publication. I hope there will be many more to follow in the future.
Yesterday, I went the bookstore with my mom. It was when I was close to exiting the store that I stumbled upon Bella Grace (Vol. I, Issue I). I was unsure on whether to purchase it or not; the only way to come to a decision, though, is to flip through the pages. So I did and stumbled upon “I Dance for Me” by Emma and Theresa Smerud. I read it right then and there. I’m sure my mom saw my face, tears welling up, because she said, “It seems to be a good one.” The few hours that the magazine has been with me, the pages I have read, my soul is already peeking out from her hiding place.

I am a book shop dweller by nature and frequent my local Barnes and Noble regularly. Imagine my surprise when my eyes flickered over to something new…Bella Grace! Everything from the Editor’s letter to the soul stirring pictures and articles makes me giddy as a child. Of course, I devoured this slice of heaven the minute I got home and since then have read it cover to cover numerous times. I must confess I had to purchase a second one a week later because I wanted to rip out favorite quotes and photos and add them to my art journal. I want to shout from the rooftops and tell the world—Read this and “know that life should be lived with a full heart and open eyes.”
Your magazine is the most fantastic, inspiring, motivating magazine I've found in.... forever!!

Bella Grace is a beautiful book...more than a magazine. I loved every page. “The Simple Charm of a Clothesline”…..truly touched my heart. How did you know Jennifer – that you were writing about me? Each time I open “Bella Grace” and read it again – it means even more. Smiles.
