Months ago, I wrote a post about a new women's magazine called Verily that I had recently discovered. They had just released an online teaser issue, to generate interest before going into print, and I fell head over heels in love. It's wholesome and real, it's feminine and so beautiful, it's serious and meaningful. It's not at all trashy, it's respectful of women and what makes us who we are, and it's smart. I admire the women who put their hearts and minds into this project--this world was in desperate need of a magazine like Verily.

I subscribed the second I finished the teaser and since then I've been eagerly awaiting my first issue. (In the meantime, I've been tiding myself over with Verily's blog--which is also wonderful.) Over the last few weeks, the editors at Verily have announced that print subscriptions will be sent out very soon, and a few days ago they revealed the first cover! Isn't it beautiful? I'm dying to know what will be inside its pages.

I recently learned that an impressive circle of D.C. women are encouraging subscribers. I've been pleased to see some positive buzzing about Verily here in the blog world. I was recently speaking to a journalist at a Catholic magazine and when I mentioned Verily, she said she wrote an article for the first issue.

This magazine is getting attention and I want to do my small part in encouraging you, my dear readers, to consider a subscription for yourself. Based on everything I've seen so far, I can recommend it wholeheartedly, and I believe this is exactly the sort of publication we women should support.


  1. I LOVE Verily magazine!!! I had the teaser issue but sadly lost it. I'm really looking forward to this issue to be released. =) Thanks Kate for promoting such a wonderful, beautiful and wholesome feminine magazine! Women's true beauty is shown throughout these pages, not in the way that secular magazines portray women.
    Two summers ago I was in a wedding party with Ashley, one of the ladies who puts together this incredible magazine!!! It's such a small world =) Have a great day!

  2. Wow, this looks incredible! Thank you for sharing!

  3. I love it too! Technically, I believe it is a secular magazine, but it stays far away from the trappings that most secular magazines fall into, and it's infused with such grace and beauty and real values. It's so impressive, and I agree that it definitely doesn't feel like most secular magazines do.

    How funny that you were in a wedding party with Ashley! I bet she was lovely!

  4. You're welcome! I hope you subscribe!

  5. this sounds great, Kate, thanks for introducing us to it! I'm so tired of the cookie-cutter lifestyle/style/decor magazines that are out there - so many of them make me feel like I'm being condescended to because I don't totally buy in to the ideal they're pushing. but I love how lively and intelligent Verily sounds! I'll definitely subscribe :)

  6. I'm so glad you're going to subscribe!!! The more the merrier. It's really quite an unusual publication and not at all "cookie cutter" as you say. We'll have to chat about it when the first issue arrives. :)

  7. Hi Krizia! Oh I'm so happy that someone from the magazine found my post. I really meant every word--I admire Verily's mission and can't wait to see it grow. Thank YOU for what you do!

  8. very cool..I'll be sure to check it out!
