From the editor of the Beacon Lights: What kind of reading material do you have laying around the house for your children to read? Do you feel like there is something missing? If you do not currently subscribe to Beacon Lights, you are missing out! This magazine is designed for Reformed youth, but adults read it with profit as well. What about the cost? Right now, the average cable bill in the U.S is over $100/month. If you took only one of those monthly payments, that would cover over six years of the $15/yr subscription price!
