Everyone has watched and loved Judy Garland in “The Wizard of Oz” (1939), but very few have sat down to watch the other films in which she starred! Garland, equipped with a powerhouse voice, impassioned dramatic abilities and impressive dancing skills, was a force like no other star in the Golden Age of Hollywood.

Her role as Dorothy in the “The Wizard of Oz” may be the role she’s widely known for, but her legacy also lies in the way she represented glittering optimism and love for life on-screen—despite her personal struggles behind-the-scenes.

So plop into a chair and watch “The Wizard of Oz” for the hundredth time...but then take some time to watch some of her other glorious films:


1. “Meet Me in St. Louis” (1944)


Pure Technicolor. Pure magic. Pure beauty. Purely Judy.

2. “A Star is Born” (1954)


(AKA the film of which Judy should have won an Oscar for—but she was robbed!)

3. “Easter Parade” (1948)

She sings. She dances. She shows off her comedic chops!


4. “The Clock” (1945)


(AKA one of the few films in which Judy does NOT sing!)

5. “For Me and My Gal” (1942)

Despite being that this is a thinly-veiled WWII propaganda film that happens to be about WWI, Judy still brings a smile to your face with her talents—while also bringing a tear to your eye now and again!


6. “Strike Up the Band” (1940)

I had to include one of Judy’s “backyard musicals” with Mickey Rooney, which helped to launch her into stardom!

Do you endure a lot of persecution as a Christian but remember when you decided you wanted to "be like Christ"?

It's a topic that needs to be talked about way more than it should, especially in today's world: mental health. Whether it be anxiety, depression or O.C.D.

When Amy Coney Barrett was sworn in by the Supreme Court, she insisted overturning Roe v. Wade wasn't on her agenda. That landmark case made it possible for pregnant people across America to legally choose whether to have an abortion. There are many reasons a person would want to terminate their pregnancy. Money, age, health and sexual assault are just some of the reasons a person would choose to get an abortion.

The girl who was supposed to be forever

You become best friends thinking you’ll never leave each others side, that bff’s literally means forever and ever. You pick someone and you click. Random trips to wherever, tons and tons of photos. You spend years building a relationship and a special bond thinking it’ll be there when you’re gray and wrinkly. The endless nights staying up and talking about anything and everything, the stupidest things. Meeting each other’s families, calling their parents yours. You plan your whole life around theirs, future kids being besties and houses next door to each others.
