My Light Magazine
The Catholic Magazine for Children

MISSION STATEMENT:  My Light is a Catholic magazine dedicated to helping Christian children nurture a deeper relationship with God by helping them to understand their faith.  We wish to help them know God--not just to know about Him, but to know Him spiritually.  Many of our children know about God, but don't have that deeper connection with Him.  We aim to be an enlightened path from our children to God Himself.  With the help of our generous and creative writers and illustrators, we can show children how wonderful a real relationship with God can be.

My Light Catholic Children's Magazine features stories, articles, Bible stories retold, crafts, and poems to both entertain and educate children, and bring them closer to their Church and their faith.
