Lily; beautiful living through faithIf you bought a copy of Lily in Spring 2006, that would be two of us. I can't find any record that it existed, not in a news release or a demise story, although one of the columnists does list her article on her vita. I suspect the field--soft Christian with parenting advice, health tips, decorating and recipes, was just a bit over crowded. It sort of has that Oprahish, scrapbookish spiritual look.
"From the editor" by Wanda J. Ventling: "I, too, have a heart for God, and it has been my desire to create a widely available Christian-lifestyle magazine that meets both spiritual and practical needs since I wrote a business proposal for one in college.. I believe God planted this seed, and He has been faithful to bring an incredible group of people to nurture Lily's development." Ms. Ventling's name appears on several other Meredith publications as a writer or editor.
Articles written by well-known Christian authors such as James Dobson, Gary Smalley, Joyce Meyer; includes book and movie reviews.
One of the tips is in the lower left corner of the cover, "Meredith Specials." Sometimes these become magazines, sometimes not.
