Welcome to the Segullah blog, a forum for exploring ideas, sharing experiences, and highlighting individuals relating to the journal. Starting January 2013, the blog will start including excerpts from the journal, which is moving to an all-digital format.
The mission of Segullah is to encourage literary and artistic talent, provoke thought and promote greater understanding and faith among Latter-day Saint women. We encourage insightful writings which explore life’s richness and complexity while reflecting faithfulness to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Our aim is to highlight a variety of women’s perspectives within a framework of shared beliefs and values.
In Hebrew segullah signifies a cherished personal possession that is set apart and diligently cared for; it is a term the Lord has used with affection to describe His covenant blessings and responsibilities we receive in relationship with Him.
How do you pronounce Segullah? Say-Goo-Law. Place the stress on the first syllable (or on all three syllables equally). Segullah rhymes with Oo-la-la, write & draw, coup d’etat, Blanche DuBois, shock & awe, Lah-dee-dah, looky, ma!
