Issue #3 is live! (Online and in Print)

It’s time to check out the new issue of Pure in Heart!

Cover art: “Victorious Lion” by Ginger Burke.

Hello readers, and welcome to Issue #3! Find a comfortable place to read and dig in because we have put together another enjoyable collection of poems and stories that will make you smile, make you think, make you cry, and hopefully bring you closer to your Creator.

In this issue, we’ve included some new features that we’re excited to share with you. We have our first ever crossword-puzzle poem, our first ever comic (that will make you want to hug your mom), and two stories written by creative kids. Please, kids, if you’re reading this, after you enjoy going through Issue #3, start writing and creating for our next issue! Next time, we plan on taking jokes and riddles along with the usual poems and stories, and we can’t wait to see what you come up with.

If you’re reading online, don’t forget to leave comments on your favorite poems and stories. The writers and artists read them and love to see how much you enjoyed their work.

Thank you for reading! We hope you enjoy Issue #3!
