iola magazine

What if you could find a magazine that encourages you right where you are, that lifts your spirits with beautiful imagery? What if you could read stories from women who live lives just like yours? Who have struggled through the same things you do, who know what it is like to question your life’s direction, wondered how to fit in caring for your children and feeling like you are doing something meaningful? What if there was a magazine that was a breath of fresh air? What if it’s creative prompts were gentle, accessible and inspiring? Well we came up with an idea….

Introducing iola magazine

If you love good design, creativity, reading and music, – iola magazine is for you. If you’ve ever wondered about how to manage all the things: family, meaningful work, creative pursuits and how not to lose yourself in the process, – iola is for you. If you have faith in God but at times might describe your relationship with him as complicated and have been hurt on life’s road, – iola is for you. 

If your idea of a simple treat is some time out with coffee and a magazine that inspires not invokes envy – iola is for you.

The Fall 2018 issue of iola–the Bloom issue–is now available to purchase on-line. (I’m not a contributor in this issue, but that doesn’t stop me from shamelessly plugging this gorgeous publication.)
