Thus, we are here today, coming back home again! Only this time, we are desirous to share
these times of refreshing with you…the everyday woman. We’ve heard your voices crying out
for something fresh and something from a Christian perspective to speak to your heart in a

have wholeheartedly endeavored to address the issues facing the everyday woman in a realistic
and down-to-earth manner. While you joyfully thumb through each page of the publication or
engage in one of our encouraging brunches, you will receive avid and candid information
regarding the real truth about relationships. Our publication will have its’ hands on the pulse of
revolutionary fashion offerings, confront the health concerns most women are too fearful to
unveil, and of course provide insight into the state of our educational, political and community
happenings. We promise to provide you with honest, informative and up to date conversation
that will cause you to be transformed entirely into the woman who God has always intended for
you to be….the beautiful, wonderful, surviving, thriving you! Go ahead! Open the pages of The
Women’s Corner Magazine and register to attend one of our forthcoming Saturday morning “for
ladies only” brunches. Expect God to meet you there in an unprecedented manner!
