Who We Are
Lively Journal Society is a non-profit dedicated to strengthening relationships, families and gender relations amongst millennials. LJS does this from a faith-based perspective, and hopes to encourage questions of morality and spirituality amongst young people.
This is not a website or for perfect people. It’s not an organization that is just for prudish Christians who look down on others as less “moral” than them. LJS is for broken and bewildered people of all backgrounds who are looking for understanding and healing – as we all are.
Broken families and relationships can be directly attributed to many problems within our society today of violence, crime, mental illness and homelessness. LJS addresses the problem where it starts, strengthening the relationships that eventually become families.
Our mission can be summed up like this:
Faith Love & Femininity + Masculinity & Compassion
Faith: Promoting deeper thinking on issues of religion and spirituality for those who are searching. Fostering a profound relationship with God and ones faith within the Christian community. Nurturing peace and morality (good vs bad) within one’s soul and daily life.
Love & Femininity: Encouraging young women to have a love for themselves, their family and the inherent beauty of their gender. Too often women are told that finding strength and independence means acting like “men” – Lively Journal hopes to allow women to live freely and openly in their femininity.
Masculinity & Compassion: Encouraging young men to love and embrace their masculinity. Often men in our culture are told their masculinity is “toxic” or inherently “sexist.” However, masculinity is just as much about strength as it is about love and caring. Men are the people most willing to risk their lives for others, that sounds pretty compassionate to me! Lively hopes to encourage men to be proactive and effective in their lives, relationships, and fatherhood.
