Creation Illustrated--TOS Review

Our entire family just adored this review! We knew about this magazine but had never received it (until now!).  What a plethora of information and wonder, the animal lovers in our home were especially intrigued. As a side note, when our family visits science museums I spend quite a bit of time explaining to the children why/what we are seeing that doesn't line up with our belief of Creationism. This magazine is a refreshing addition to the reading material in our home, no outside explanation required. 
The makers of Creation Illustrated say this:

Our Purpose…is to share the wonders of God’s creation. By revealing fresh insights of His infinite wisdom, gentle touch, undeniable justice, redeeming love, and flawless design, pure truth shall bring renewed peace. Each part of this publication is offered as a reprieve from the daily rigor’s of life so that all can look to the future with unbridled gratitude and hope.

For almost 20 years, Creation Illustrated magazine has used articles, short stories, photo contests and puzzles for kids, even recipes to share some of God’s wonders with readers.  In order to bring a balance of  physical, spiritual and mental enrichment, each issue is divided into three parts: nature, Scripture, and living. Just as the title implies, throughout the magazine there are dozens of photographs—from macro close ups of flowers and insects to panoramic landscapes.
