Warren to Become LHJ Columnist

Feb 10, 2005

Rick Warren, author of the best-seller “The Purpose-Driven Life,” has signed on with Ladies’ Home Journal to provide an exclusive monthly column called “Purpose.”

The column, which debuted in the February issue, will address topics of spirituality and the search for meaning among American women and their families.

“Rick clearly has touched a chord in the country today and is able to address, in a very down to earth and universal way, people’s yearning to enhance their experience of spirituality in their daily lives,” said Diane Salvatore, the magazine’s editor in chief. “Since our 13 million readers are already enjoying our Inner Life coverage, which explores mastery of their emotional life, teaming up with Rick was a natural fit.”

Warren said he welcomes the chance to contribute to a periodical that has meant so much to his family.

“Four generations of women in my life — my grandmother, mother, wife and daughter — have enjoyed Ladies’ Home Journal, so I’m thrilled to write for it,” he said. “There is a growing spiritual hunger in our culture, and I admire Ladies’ Home Journal for their foresight and commitment to address every aspect of a woman’s life, including the spiritual dimension.”
