Afrikaans women’s magazine launches

Media24 Women’s Magazines have launched the first-ever issue of a unique Afrikaans magazine, Lééf – met hart & siel. The monthly glossy magazine is targeted at the modern Afrikaans woman who is looking for spiritual fulfillment, for personal growth and guidance and, above all, a sense of living a complete and balanced life.
Associate editor Christine Ferreira says that what sets the magazine apart from the many other women’s magazines is its strong holistic message and focus on personal values, the community and family, religion and spirituality. The contemporary title has two core pillars – heart and soul.

“The stress of today’s fast pace, global and local issues, and societal demands takes its toll on many. There is a need for a kind of ‘spiritual safe house’, something that addresses today’s issues but also instills a sense of balance and gives one that necessary guidance and helping hand.

“We believe readers will find solace in Lééf – met hart & siel, as it is a holistic read with much uplifting guidance and advice.”

Sarie editor Michélle van Breda is editorial head and writers such as Professor Piet Naude (motivational speaker and ethics professor at The Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University in Port Elizabeth), Marzanne Leroux-Van der Boon and American preacher Joyce Meyer will contribute on a regular basis.
