  1. I could not find any place to access the subscription section to order the magazine. I have ordered before through pay pal.


    1. Hello, Gwen. If you are on our page, you should see the word *subscribe* in pretty big letters alongside a shark tooth. Depending upon what device you are using, you may have to scroll down. But we haven’t changed our procedures. You can still subscribe through PayPal, Zelle, or Venmo. If you’re still not seeing what you need, let me know!
