Five Inspirational Magazines for Christian Teenagers

Christian teenagers serious about their faith may find it difficult to find magazines that speak directly to their interests and to their moral perspective. Many mainstream magazines for teenagers simply do not address the needs of devoutly Christian teens. Fortunately, even at a time when many magazines are closing, there are still several magazines aimed at Christian teenagers, designed to guide them through tough issues and add a little fun to their day.

Here are several magazines for teenagers. Some are available only in online editions, but others are also available in print editions for subscription or newsstand sale.
