MAY WE CULTIVATE CURIOSITY WHILE CHOOSING CLARITY OVER CHAOS; CELEBRATE CREATIVITY WHILE CHOOSING CONNECTEDNESS OVER COMPARISON; AND CURATE CONFIDENCE WHILE CHOOSING COURAGE OVER COMFORT.

SECURE VOLUME I OF LEGACY MAGAZINE BY PRE-ORDERING TODAY!

THE MAGAZINE

Legacy Magazine is a substantive, aesthetically-pleasing publication for service member families and their surrounding communities. We believe that every individual is designed on purpose and for a purpose, with the ability to better their communities and themselves through unique experiences, qualities, and strengths. Through a strength-based approach, we incorporate elements of personal narrative, self-development, and creative expression to further equip and inspire individuals in their endeavors. We seek to offer the voice of a friend and mentor during times of celebration, transition, and growth. We believe truth is attractive and that individuals are hungry for substance and depth amidst all the noise. Let us come alongside one another and encourage each other in embracing the season we’re in while we sculpt and refine our messages, missions, and professions.

THE CONTRIBUTORS

To bring our readers the largest selection of top-notch content, we designed the publication to incorporate submissions from creatives within the community. Legacy Magazine features the work of writers, artists, and photographers from across the globe. A few of the contributors include designer Mattie Tiegreen; author Corie Weathers, LPC; Elizabeth Boardman, co-founder of The Milspo Project; artist Lana Gibson; influencer Stephanie Howell; and photographer Hailey Faria.

THE INTERVIEWEES

In addition to our contributors, we include interviews with inspiring individuals that truly exemplify the personas within the magazine. Interviewees include Lara Casey, author and editor-in-chief of Southern Weddings Magazine; active duty soldier and social influencer Amy Lou HawthorneCaroline Potter, author of All-American Paleo Table; Dianne Jago, editor-in-chief of Deeply Rooted Magazine; Cameron Cruse, co-founder and COO of R.Riveter; Sundi Mclaughlin, owner of Mockingbird on Broad; Leia Capps, founder of Sage Harvest; Torrance Hart, veteran and founder Teak & Twine; and Lauren Tamm, author of The Military Wife and Mom

THE PERSONAS 

The nine personas within the publication represent the attributes courageously demonstrated by this community. While a reader might naturally gravitate towards one or two of the personas, we believe different seasons call for different strengths. Within each section, we incorporate interviews, personal narratives, and self-development exercises to provide guidance and hope for whatever season the reader may find themselves.

OUR WHY 

A few years ago, we recognized the lack of a centralized publication that celebrated the variety of meaningful paths available to our unique service member families. We saw the opportunity to raise the bar and curate the inspiring stories of celebration, transition, and growth in a tasteful and uplifting way. In 2015, while our editor-in-chief was working alongside veteran and spouse owned organizations, the idea of turning these experiences into a publication was first born. In 2016, our core team came together and decided to turn their education and experience into a magazine that would celebrate and inspire the community. Before embarking on the journey, our team laid out our core values as a guiding azimuth so we can engage the greater community while offering content that is both aesthetically appealing and full of depth.

THE TEAM 

We are a diverse group of individuals with unique talents and strengths that have one prominent unifier – the burning desire to positively impact the greater military community.
