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.

I absolutely adore Bella Grace. It is without a doubt my absolute favorite magazine that I have ever come across in my 20 years on this earth. Thought I would send in this poem I wrote a while back that I never thought to do anything with. It reflects the simple but beautiful moments that I love in my life and felt like it would fit in well with Bella Grace. Enjoy!

Got my advance copy, just finished it over a few days ... so inspirational! Where's my camera, where's my notepad? I felt a peaceful calm wash over me as I read it, sitting outdoors in the sunlight. Another triumph for S&Co!

Just received my copy of Bella Grace in the mail. I have only read the letter from the editor and I am already in love. This is the magazine I have been waiting for my whole life. This is the magazine that speaks to my soul.

I thank you so much for your beautiful publication. I came across it today and it brought tears to my eyes because it reminded me of how I was when I was living more authentically. How I've missed that version of me! The Universe always gives reminders when I need it most, and I'm grateful I came across #bellagracemagazine when I did, as I'm starting a new chapter in my life in a couple of days! Thank you!!!
