Captivating, by Stasi and John Eldridge, is on my bookshelf just waiting to be read. I keep putting it off for some reason. Busy with other studies and books I'm trying to finish. Captivating is not a word I would use to describe myself, in fact, I don't know if I understand what it really means to be captivating. I guess I would if I read the book!
A month or so ago, my husband told me that Relevant Magazine (one of his favorites) is now publishing a magazine for women-it's called Radiant. I was excited about this and checked out the website. I read through everything and decided to subscribe. Then I read a little blurb at the end of the website. It informed me that Radiant is written for women in their 20's and early 30's! OUCH! What a slap in the face. I suddenly felt old and unimportant! Am I not the right age to be radiant? Relevant? There was no anger on my part, just surprise. This is the first publication I've run across that interests me that is actually geared toward younger women. At what point am I no longer a younger woman? It never occurred to me that Hubby was reading a magazine written for men 10 years younger! He loves it! He doesn't let his age matter - why should I? I subscribed to the magazine.
Now, I will begin reading my book and I look forward to my first issue of my new magazine! I will read them both from cover to cover. My age doesn't define me! So what if I'm 37 and I'm no longer the focus of advertising and publications!
Captivating and Radiant!
