Women’s Magazines Can’t Tell the Truth

redbookfaith.jpgHey, here’s a great Jezebel blog post with July Redbook cover images of singer Faith Hill before and after Photoshopping!
Lordy, lordy, let us not be taken prisoner! Let us not feel we look like squat when we daily face our bathroom mirror.
We live in a world where the airbrush strikes down as surely as a gavel in court. Note (when you click on the link given above) how even the contours of Hill’s arm and back have been changed!
Here’s Jezebel’s run down of the five biggest lies perpetuated by women’s magazines. Remember it is likely that your life is way more interesting than the average celebrity’s! Note: Both “Good Housekeeping” and “More” have always featured the lives and looks of real women (though who knows, for the cover shot, all journalistic standards might fly in the breeze).
What magazines do you read these days? Which do you feel attend to the spiritual aspects of true wellbeing and beauty?

Being an effective communicator and a skillful public speaker was a dream of mine at the time. And still is. After some 30 minutes of prep with the station's hair-and-

Websites to Visit, Blogs to Read
Here are some blogs and websites I like. It's not a complete list. But it's a start. The first is called New Moon Journal and it is written by Michele Bailey-Lessirard, a life coach, collage artist, and "shamanic astrologer." On the opening page of her site, you'll find a little slide show of her am

Place your burden at the feet of the Lord of the Universe who accomplishes everything. Remain all the time steadfast in the heart, in the Transcendental Absolute.
