Crowned with Silver

In the 1990's and early 2000's, we homemakers were greatly encouraged by an old fashioned magazine called, "Crowned with Silver."   Each issue taught us the history of feminism and how it was destroying modern homes.  It was gently, and sweetly done and a blessing to learn.

We also read old stories from the 1800's and 1900's that inspire families - just like those old fireside readings.  We read articles about old fashioned child training and keeping our homes nice and our pantries full. 

There was a small pen pal section where mothers and daughters could find like-minded friends to correspond with. 

Late yesterday afternoon, I found one issue of the magazine online. *  I believe it was the last issue, or close to last issue, before they ceased publication (when the editor passed away).  It is the Summer 2007 edition.   The main article is called, "My Wife Took My Job" by Mrs. Anna Neumas.  She spoke about how a husband was heartbroken because his wife had decided to divorce him.  The court gave her the children because she was earning much more money than he was.  She was very successful in her work and didn't think she needed him any more.  Mrs. Neumas went on to explain The Industrial Revolution and Women's Rights Movement, and the ungodly thinking that lured wives and mothers out of the home.  The article is excellent and will greatly encourage we homemakers who are committed to our calling at home. (I hope you are able to read this article.)

I dearly wish "Crowned with Silver" was still in print and could continue for many years to encourage each generation.

I used to subscribe to that magazine too!! I know I had a notebook full of old issues in page protectors. I'm not sure if I still have it or not. I seem to think I may have given all of my old issues to another homemaker. But, I'll check!! :) Thanks for sharing this! Blessings on your family this Christmas!

I remember that magazine...I was blessed to read a few issues that I found online when the internet wasn't as extensive as it is today....I was a fairly new Christian (of only a few years) and a young mother. It filled a void because I could not find any Titus 2 women who even remotely wanted to be home raising their children or being godly wives.

I was still praying to be a mommy when I first discoverd this magazine many years ago. I got a subscription and devoured each issue within hours of it coming through the door. I have saved all the issues and refer to them as now my prayer was answered and I am the proud momma of a little boy. I also would do what I could to see this magazine make a comeback!

Does anyone know how to obtain back issues? Or how we could buy or borrow another's copies?

I LOOVED this magazine!! I discovered it not too long after we were married in 1998. I let someone borrow my copies and never got them back. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to have them again!! If you ever find them and print them again, I will DEFINITELY buy one!!!

I came across your blog when I was searching for of all things Crowned With Silver Magazine. I remember that magazine because someone gave me her old copies. I wish someone would bring that magazine back. Perhaps some ladies who share the same values as CWS could get together and bring it back.
