The Internet is such a great resource that we want to occasionally share some websites that docents may find useful for research.
The website describes itself well below:

Its memorable stories and images inspire readers to craft a conscientious, expressive life they feel good about.

Our core audience values community, sustainability, quality and authenticity."
