Young LDS Woman Fills Internet Niche for Young Women

JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA -- Stacie Skinner, a young LDS woman in Northern California, couldn't find an LDS young women's e-zine on the Internet, so she decided to create one herself, says a report last week on the web site The result is the now two-year-old 'Daughters of Zion' e-zine, a twice-monthly email list that reaches some 150 young women, including some as far away as Russia and England.

Skinner says she tried hard to find an LDS e-zine elsewhere, "I subscribed to around 50 e-zines run by girls of all ages, but couldn't find one organized by a member of the church focusing on our religion. So I came up with this idea and Daughters of Zion took off."

The e-zine started in August 1999, providing advice, ideas, interviews, dating tips and more. Skinner says she believes her magazine serves as a missionary tool, an informative guide, a social outlet, and as a safe place for young women with high standards. The e-zine includes columns titled Advice4Life, Pen Pals, Choose the Right, Ideas for Devotionals, FHE Recipes, Guy Interviews, Dating Tips, Poetry, Personal Progress, My Favorite, You Speak, Freebies, Make It Yourself, and Birthdays.
