At Bella, we consider it vital for the health and well-being of our young women to discover who they are and who God has created them to be.
If we fail to invest, then we will continue to have the most affluent, yet the most depressed generation ever to walk the face of the planet.
In a culture that promotes the most important source of capital for a woman is the sum of her body parts – our response needs to endorse and to provide an environment that promotes women to bearing His image and likeness.
As parents, educators and church leaders, we can continue to foster the development of young women by identifying, articulating and giving opportunity for expression of gifting, passion and or strengths.
Danny Silk, author of Powerful and Free writes, “the church should be the safest, freest and most empowering place for women – for anyone.”
Since our first release, Bella has invested in over 100 young women, providing them a week’s work experience.
This week involves the opportunity to explore and to be given training in their area of gifting and passion, such as photography, writing, design and styling.
But our main objective is to shape their understanding of the media industry and to provide positive strategies to overcome it.
2014 is an exciting new year for Bella, as we are now producing 6 editions a year!
On top of this, Bella is now available online, so that anyone in the world can now read the magazine!

What you ladies are doing is phenomenal, you are really changing lives. It has been an honour to be a part of it even if it was only for a week. I have learnt so much from you and it made me realise that anything is possible.GABBI, Journalism Student, QUT, Brisbane
