Why Do We Publish American Essence?

The last several years have seen an influx of criticism disparaging America. Statues of the Founding Fathers were toppled. Mainstream media, focusing exclusively on slavery, portray our founding as a dark episode in our history. The result? Cancel culture and a sense of shame surrounding America’s origins.

But we remember the true story: America was built on founding principles encompassing religious freedom and tolerance. Successive waves of peoples have since thrived on our shores. Furthermore, our country derives its strength from its God-bestowed blessings. A fresco painted inside the U.S. Capitol dome reveals a fascinating scene, where the painter has artfully allegorized six areas in which we have led the world: freedom, science, maritime trade, commerce, mechanics, and agriculture. America’s bold, innovative leadership has forged a nation unlike any other in history.

Why do we publish American Essence? To remind us to be proud of our country’s legacy—one that continues to ripple around the world.

What readers are saying:

With all the negative media coverage of America, and the twisted, commercialized version of America and Americans that are pushed on our American society as truth, it is refreshing to find a magazine like American Essence. This magazine tells real stories of real Americans, which reflect what is good and true about America.

What drew me to want to subscribe is the focus on things and people in America. Stories of traditional American values and creativity regardless of race, color or creed.
- Deborah Smith
I really enjoy the stories of small businesses I would have otherwise never known about. It really captures the true spirit of Americans. I also enjoy learning about the history of America through your magazine.
- Adam Dickerson
Never in my lifetime has there been a greater need to recognize and share what is good, positive, hopeful, commendable, generous, ingenious, amazing, wonderful... the ESSENCE... about America. Perfect name for this outstanding publication.
- K. B.
Educational, in-depth, first class articles. Heartwarming American story sharing by informed authors. Fantastic art and photography. Unique and awesome publication.
- S. Lyn Samuelson
My children are bombarded with media messaging that intentionally tries to tear down this country and divide its people. But they will come to know better. American Essence is a beacon of hope in an ocean of chaos.
- James Michaletz
Your magazine gives me chills when I read it, the kind I feel when I salute our flag. It inspires unity, with good old fashioned common sense stories about people keeping their faith in liberty.
- Kellee Scammell
Wanted to support your publication as it represents what is missing in the media; integrity, moral standards, and positivity. A wonderful "read" that will be shared historically in the future with family and friends. Image great grandchildren reading and learning from American Essence in years to come.
- Jane Bush
We need publications that highlight the diversity and creativity that life in America affords. I thought the first edition of American Essence was beautifully written and presented. I plan to buy several gift subscriptions for family members.
- Kari Wszolek
American Essence magazine is beautifully produced. The articles are interesting, well written and inspiring. I read the magazine from cover to cover. I also enjoy the photography and artwork.
- Elaine Young
I am 75 years old and have children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. I want them to know the true America I grew up in. I find that the schools today are not teaching the true story of America and what a wonderful country we are. American Essence may some day be one of the few sources for our future Americans to read and learn about the true America.
- Lillian Davis
The magazine is a keepsake. The photography is wonderful and the articles interesting. Thank you for producing something hopeful, intelligent, and informative.
