The mission statement of Creation Illustrated sums up very well the reason for their magazine.

Mission Statement:

Our purpose is to share the wonders of God's creation. By revealing fresh insights of His infinite wisdom, gentle touch, undeniable justice, redeeming love, and flawless design, pure truth shall bring renewed peace. Each part of this publication is offered as a reprieve from the daily rigors of life so that all can look to the future with unbridled gratitude and hope.

A photography contest for youth is also feature in the magazine. Photographers from 5-15 are encouraged to submit a photo along with a statement describing what the photo says about God the Creator. The winning photos will be kept on file and published as space allows.

An instructional guide is a part of each magazine. The goal of the guide is to help students learn the practical spiritual lessons available through the study of God’s handiwork. The guide is not designed to be a difficult chore, but as enjoyable exercises.

Other features include: Genesis Cuisine, Children’s Corner, and many devotional articles.

I liked the Creation Illustrated Magazine. It has amazing pictures and interesting stories. Each story was Christian in nature giving an uplifting, devotional message. I shared the magazine with my kids who also liked to read the articles and look at the beautiful photography. Rebekah has requested that we cut out some of the pictures and hang them up in her bedroom.
