This issue is chock-full of great people in our community using their gifts for good in a variety of ways. We are each given different talents, but what good are they if we keep them to ourselves?
Let your light shine by using those talents as you are called to do! Josh & Zephare Ramirez, Jackie White, and their team continue to pour their energy into giving to others through the Lubbock Dream Center.
Russell Donaway (current President) and Bernie Gradel (past President) have dedicated themselves to the thriving Lubbock Lions Club, an organization that in 88 years has done an immeasurable amount of good in the city. What are your gifts? How can you put them to use today? A small act can make a big difference in someone’s life.
We encourage you to shop local this season and start with the contributors to this publication (see a full list of advertisers on page 135). Please tell them you saw their ad in Lubbock Lifestyles Magazine and thank them for this free publication detailing a few of the many people, places, and things that make Lubbock such a great place to call home!
I love fall and I love all things vintage. This season take a moment to reflect and slow down. Yes, it takes effort to slow down - especially with the impending holiday season, but how else can you treasure the memories being made if you are not intentionally present for them? Think back 50 plus years (to the days on our cover this issue) and enjoy the amazing change of seasons before us.
We hope you enjoy the variety of articles featuring our neighbors and what they are doing to give back to the Lubbock community. As you will read, we can each make a difference by using our gifts and talents for good. We encourage you to be intentional and look for opportunities to get involved. If you are a mother looking to spend quality time with your daughter while giving back, take a look at our cover story and read about your local National Charity League in ‘Raising a Leader.’
We love to hear from you! Tell us what you love and what you would like to see more of in future issues. As always we want to feature your events and uplifting stories about the great things and people around Lubbock. All of us at Lubbock Lifestyles Magazine want to say congratulations to all of the graduates this spring! From kindergarten to college – these milestones should be celebrated.
We are excited about fall…to me it means more than football and a drop in temperatures….it means memories with my babies and holiday traditions ahead! Below are a few pictures of falls past with my two children, Gatlyn and Georgia Lee, as well as, Casey’s precious 3 year old Jorie Cait. Time never seems to go by so quickly as it does when you look how much a child grows and changes in a few short months. We want to see your families’ pictures too.
What pictures are we looking for? Take your pick – expecting a baby? Email us with a newborn picture for Hometown Bundles of Joy. Have you recently been married, engaged, or celebrated an anniversary? Share your announcement with us in Hometown Wedded Bliss! Have a child graduating? Share a graduate picture for Hometown Graduates. Photographers – we want you! We have freelance positions available or submit any of the above in bulk. Contact us at the office for details – 817.599.6167
This season don’t forget to shop local as we all strive to support one another, our neighbors – what better way to showcase HOMETOWN LIVING AT ITS BEST than to support local shops, vendors, and to let them know you’re spending your hard earned money at home.
As always, we thank you for reading Lubbock Lifestyles. We strive to show you the many people, places, and things that highlight the numerous positive attributes Lubbock has to offer! Happy Fall Y’all!
There is so much the Lord is doing in our neighborhoods and we are grateful to be able to share their testimonies. Our town has rallied around local college student, Malori Maddox, read her amazing testimony in Triumph in Tragedy. For the young mothers out there a must read is Holistic Mothering featuring the local group who call themselves ‘Lubbock Crunchy Moms.’ Being a mom is the most important job in the world and often times the toughest – but having a support system can make it a lot easier!

I love fall! And all the joys and traditions this season brings. Lubbock has a long tradition of being a hub to many surrounding West Texas communities.
