Celestial Shine Magazine (TM) is a modest fashion magazine dedicated to providing an uplifting option for teens to enjoy fashion and trends, beauty tips and ideas, bring together uplifting and modest bloggers, provide spiritual articles applying the gospel to real life teens’ situations, and bringing the Young Women all over the United States together in a supportive community.
Our goal is to encourage Young Women to be in the world but not of the world, to strengthen their testimonies in the Savior Jesus Christ, to provide fashion, beauty, makeup, and dating advice that is modest and aligns with high standards, and to remind all Young Women that they are daughters of God.

Meet Emily Punjack, the editor-in-chief and creator of Celestial Shine Magazine (TM):
Hi! My name’s Emily. I am 29 years old, living in Pennsylvania with my wonderful husband, step-daughter, and 2 dogs. I graduated from Brigham Young University and served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Oakland/San Francisco mission, Spanish speaking. I love the Church and the gospel–it has helped me so much in my life. In addition, I am so passionate about this magazine and its mission because I always loved fashion magazines growing up, but I didn’t always like the content. I am so happy that now through Celestial Shine Magazine, girls can have the chance to love fashion and beauty without having to worry if it follows along their standards. I love working with the Young Women and seeing their faces shine in the photo shoots, reading the amazing articles that they write, and seeing all of the talent that they possess such as drawing, painting, dancing, etc. We are all daughters of our Heavenly Father, and we are each so unique and beautiful. I want all of the girls to KNOW that without a doubt when they read this magazine! My daily prayer is that the magazine will help and bless Young Women everywhere and help them find the fire of excitement that comes through really living the gospel of Jesus Christ.
