  • Hello! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers?
    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any tips?

    You are so awesome! I don’t think I’ve read through
    anything like this before. So good to find someone with a few genuine thoughts on this
    issue. Really.. thank you for starting this up. This web site is one
    thing that’s needed on the web, someone with a bit of originality!

    Hello there! I know this is kind of off topic but
    I was wondering if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having
    difficulty finding one? Thanks a lot!

    Natalie Patterson! I’ve watched this video multiple times today and you are amazing!!! You’re poem spoke so much truth into my heart and soul. I am getting married in less than 3 weeks, and I have been struggling with my appearance. I am tall and thin, yet don’t feel thin enough at times. I so needed this. I have a beautiful body! I’ll tattoo that on my heart! Natalie, you are helping me love myself better. Thank you! God bless you!

    powerful poem! i love this video. what a great collaboration!

  • Tamara January 21, 2014

    That poem is so powerful!

  • dana January 20, 2014

    OMG! Natalie’s poem!!! I L.O.V.E. & will repeat it’s message to myself daily… I have a beautiful body! Thank you for sharing! More soulpancakes please! 😉 xo,dana

    Thank you for embracing women and encouraging us all to recognize the beauty each one of us possess. Just the encouragement to help me carry myself with a little more confidence, grace and sass.

  • Melanie Whittaker January 18, 2014

    WOW – what a truly inspiring video. There is so much in the media that has such a negative impact on us as a society. Crazy thing is as women we can be hard on each other. There needs to be more love in the world so that young girls growing up today don’t look to glossy magazines for happiness. Beauty is skin deep but inner beauty exudes such a beautiful confidence that cant be bought from a fancy bottle at a beauty counter. That’s really put a smile on my face and I totally loved the poem at the end and I will take that on as my mantra I am beautiful ;o)

    • Katherine January 18, 2014

      This was really beautiful. Thank you.

  • amelia January 17, 2014

    so beautiful!

  • Evelyn January 17, 2014

    LOVE THIS! So glad I get Soul Pancake emails or else I would not have discovered this magazine! Just got a kindle fire, so excited the magazine is available digitally … Buying tonight as soon as I get home! 🙂

  • Jacki January 17, 2014

    Wow! Natalie! Yes – you are BEAUTIFUL. Period.

  • Emma January 16, 2014

    Thank you!

    It is amazing that you are helping to make the mental shift to a place where women are proud of who and what they were created to be. The poem at the end made me weep like a baby, it struck a real chord that I haven’t appreciated the gift that my body is because it was free so doesn’t hold value.

  • melissa January 16, 2014

    thank you ladies for what you are doing for women. thank you natalie for you words and your soul.

  • Ashley January 16, 2014


    To each woman and her journey home
    Home being the skin, flesh and bones that moves us through

    And please… for the love of all women, especially the young ones, keep making videos.

    As one who writes for your magazine, this has my adoration for Darling going even deeper which says a lot!

  • Christina of Profresh Style January 16, 2014

    Obviously you made me cry at 6:45 this morning, which in turn, struck a nerve enticing me to write, to share.

    This video (and I’m sure the series) will be a beautiful project. I’m so happy this is existing in the space. I’ve recently become a fan of Darling Magazine and love that this is what I fell in love with first.

    Thank you, for existing.

  • S January 16, 2014

    This is awesome- It would be even better with more women of color at the actual table- speaking about what beauty is to them 🙂

  • R January 16, 2014
