Look for the 501 LIFE Holiday issue on racks now!

501 LIFE has published its December “Holiday” issue.

The cover features sparkling ornaments with a photo on them that represents the 11 counties where our magazine is distributed,” said Stefanie Brazile, co-owner and editor. “Each month we try to share meaningful stories about the people and events that reflect the heart of these communities.”

As we close out a stressful year that brought the world a pandemic and highlighted racial tensions nationally, we hope the stories of goodwill and acts of kindness will restore your faith in life in the 501. At the end of the month, we’ll celebrate the birth of the one who personifies peace, and isn’t that what we all seek at the end of 2020?
