Time Does Not Heal........



We are more than a magazine, we are a voice! Our team is made up of women who are using their gifts to encourage other women, through the power of God Almighty. We do not believe that religion should be an excuse for inequality. Gensis 1:27 - “In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.” Our hope is for women to come into their place ordained by God. Just as in the words of Maya Angelou- ‘‘I'm a woman Phenomenally. Phenomenal woman,That's me.” [Phenomenal Woman]

Our vision

We are a London based, global women's magazine. Currently we are producing two publications per year in June and December. Our roots are founded on the Christian Faith. The AUTHENTIC woman is a socially conscious woman who is empowered and recognises that her vulnerability is not a weakness but her strength. We interact with our readers and build relationships to enrich one another, for we are one.


We stand by this conviction that every woman has the right to Live BOLD, Live STRONG & Live INSPIRED 365 days a year!
