We’re pleased to announce the launch of Bella Grace: New Generation! This new magazine, hitting newsstands in the spring of 2018, will feature everything you know and love about Bella Grace, but made especially for girls ages 12 to 19. Want to share feedback as we develop this exciting new title? We’re also looking for teenage fans of Bella Grace and leaders of young women’s groups, mothers, grandmothers, sisters, and aunts to join our focus group.
As we prepare for this exciting new launch, we’re seeking young, female writers and photographers to contribute to the premiere issue. Whether you are a passionate writer or are an Instagram rockstar, you have the opportunity to be a part of the first issue of Bella Grace: New Generation.
“Ever since we made the decision to launch Bella Grace: New Generation, I’ve been so excited to bring the type of content we know and love from Bella Grace to a younger group of girls. When it comes to magazines for teenaged-girls, there isn’t a lot out there that deals with more than fashion and celebrity news. Our goal is to create a publication that goes right to the heart of what matters most to those ages 12 through 19. New Generation is a place for readers to find stories from girls their age, and find comfort and empowerment as they read words that will make them say, ‘Me too!’ We know that growing up can be a tough experience for many, but we want to show that it can also be a beautiful adventure.”

It’s funny how life never turns out how you envisioned it would as a child.
I am at an age where I recognize this, accept it, and can laugh at how this unpredictable world likes to keep me on my toes.
Growing up, I was not always so understanding of this unruly world.
“Beware the barrenness of a busy life.” — Socrates
Preparing for a trip recently, I found myself overwhelmed with an especially long to-do list.
As I plowed through each task, diligently checking off the completed items, it suddenly occurred to me that many activities I consider essential — the kind that make my heart glad — never get jotted down the way that stop the mail or water the plants do.
“There’s beauty in ordinary life, pages full of stories that turn ordinary into magical moments… Bits of magic everywhere you look from page to page. When reading Bella Grace you know there are still women who live authentically… and take the time to stop and pause to wonder and dream.”
