Ladies Home Journal has several features that readers will like. One of the most popular is "Can This Marriage Be Saved" featuring a couple that is having marital problems presenting both their sides and then a counselor's advise. Other columns include "How They Met", "Animal Affairs", and "Raising a Family". Each month there is an article featuring a family that acquired a house through Habitat. A nice feature is a column presenting a man's perspective called "Heart of a Husband". There are also articles on beauty, health, travel, and parenting. There are plenty of recipes and craft and decorating ideas. Each issue also includes a couple of celebrity interviews.
I highly recommend subscribing to Ladies Home Journal, you won't be disappointed!
I was very pleased the ease of purcasing this as a gift for my sister
The whole transaction was very smooth and I got my magazine in a timely manner.
Keeps You Company
Ladies Home Journal provides practical advice on how busy women can be happier and more effective. The articles are straightforward, easy to read, interesting, and assume the reader is intelligent (which is more than I can say for many women's magazines). I especially like the health and fitness news because it usually pertains to women exclusively. The celebrity interviews are fun, too, and the recipes are easy enough for anyone to follow and enjoy. I give it four stars because I can always find at least one topic that really interests me in each issue.
I enjoy LHJ. There are always some great ideas for home decorating and good recipes.
Articles good.. paper quality not so much
I've ben buying LHJ for years especially since I've become a wife/mom. So when I saw a chance to subscribe at a bargain basement price, I jumped at it! My first issue arrived before the scheduled start of my subscription so I was thrilled. However, although the articles were good (this months "Can this marriage be saved?" was REALLY good), I found the paper quality, and the color, etc, a little on the poor side. Could this be the reason for the bargain basement price? Don't let this dissuade you from subscribing anyhow. After all we're all supposed to be recycling anyway
Too much advertising
This magazine really lacks in content for the intelligent woman. Sorry, but I tire of reading the same ol same ol every month.
Not for ladies.
I bought Ladies Home Journal for an elderly lady who gave it back to me saying it had a lot of inappropriate topics in it. I raised my eyebrows and took a good look at the magazine. What was I thinking? Clearly, I chose the magazine as a gift based upon the 'Ladies' part of the magazine's name, assuming it was for ladies.
I did a little research and found an article interviewing Myrna Blythe, former editor-in-chief of this magazine who said, "Women's magazines can be like bad boyfriends. They'll tear you down, then spend pages trying to build you back up." Source: [..]
I'm still looking for a magazine that provides good information and holds the reader capable of integrating the information how they choose into their life.
