Biblically Based Nature Journal Magazines by Creation Illustrated (THREE WINNERS! Review with Giveaway, Ends 02/06/14, US Only)

Disclosure: We received a year's subscription to this magazine in exchange for our honest opinion about it.

In conjunction with celebrating my second blogiversary, Creation Illustrated has generously offered a giveaway for three winners to win a year's subscription each of their magazine!
Let me tell you about what Creation Illustrated sent us for this review. At the time that we arranged this review, Creation Illustrated had just published their Summer 2013 issue. In order for us to easily review a full year's subscription, we were also sent the previous three back issues. Creation Illustrated publishes their magazine quarterly with the seasons (since they are nature based, I find it highly appropriate that they publish seasonally.)
These are the four issues that we were sent.

Winter 2013

Summer 2013

Spring 2013

Fall 2012

There are amazing articles in every issue.

The articles are very engaging -  they caught my attention too! 

The photography is stunning.

There are Bible verses throughout the magazines, too! This article is part of a series.

More phenomenal photography

Lots of information about animals

Brandon loved this article about moose.

I think that the Winter issue was Brandon's favorite!
 Here's what Brandon has to say about Creation Illustrated
I have had a subscription to National Geographic kids magazine for the last two or three years. I really like it, but I don't like that it is evolution based. I really like that Creation Illustrated is creation based. They are different from each other even though they both discuss animals and nature.
I like that they have  seasonal publishing so that you can compare a season from one year to another.
There are ads so you can see things that you might be able to use.
There are recipes in every issue.
There are nature photography contests.
It talks about what happened during Creation and what I like about that is that it helps me understand it a lot easier.
Here's what I have to say about Creation Illustrated-
I love it when Brandon curls up on the couch with something to read. I like it even more when it's something educational, especially about the Bible! I did feel that there was a lot of ads in every issue. Like Brandon said, it's good to see that there are other resources that might interest us. But it seemed slightly excessive. I did enjoy reading some of the articles myself as well.
If you order on their website, you can save $5 or you can request a trial issue as part of a subscription bill me offer.
