Grace Millennium presents a shifting paradigm in which the art, writings and shared experiences of women reveal the transformational power of grace in these challenging times.

After four and a half years, the spring 2001 issue will be my last print edition as editor/publisher. I intend to keep the website going as an international forum for woman but will be happy to discuss selling or trading the rights to continue the print magazine.
In this double issue artist Moma De Louvre shares paintings of the light of the child. Articles explore the heart and joy of teaching and learning through stories and interviews of teachers in public, private and charter schools along with those teaching special programs for drama, poetry and entrepreneurial enterprises. We also talk to children about their educational experiences past and present, explore special functions of the human heart, bonding, the healing value of plants and gardens, street counseling, cross-cultural adoption, child-raising and the power of ancestral influences. Finally we explore the dangers of vaccines and mind-altering prescription medications for children.
