Q:  How can I receive the print magazine?

While Bloom! is no longer in print, we can still be found here on the webzine, where it's our deep desire and prayer to encourage, inspire, and support girls on their journey towards a gospel-centered, world-altering, Biblical womanhood!

Q:  Since the print magazine no longer exists, is there a way I can obtain previous issues?

We have all of our previous issues available online in past magazine issues.

Q:  Why did you stop the print magazine?

In the autumn of 2009, we had to halt publication of the print magazine, Bloom!, due to financial and time limits.  Due to generous sponsors, Bloom! was in print for two years and free of charge.  The Lord blessed our efforts and multiplied our subscription base very rapidly.  So when we had to stop publication, we knew the Lord was leading us to keep "encouraging girls on their journey towards Biblical womanhood", so that's why we're still on the webzine.
