[just another fairy tale?]

Last night, a friend of mine from the young adults group at my church emailed out a link to this magazine to a bunch of us ladies in the group. It’s a new magazine geared towards Catholic women, written by young adults. I haven’t gotten to read the entire thing just yet, but I did…
