“We hold these truths to be sacred and undeniable; that all men are created equal and independent, that from that equal creation they derive rights inherent and inalienable, among which are the preservation of life, and liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
I knew everything about motherhood – until the day I became a mom.
Before my daughter, I’d walk through a store, see a screaming child and think, “If I was that child’s mother, I would never let her get away with that.”
Tonight is the night of spooks and screams, tricks and treats, family and friends.
In Brazil, my homeland, there is no Halloween. If one would have told me when I was a child that there was a holiday where I could dress up like a monster, knock on peoples’ doors, take a peek at my neighbor’s living room and get free candy, I wouldn’t have believed it. It sounds too good to be true!
I am so moved by stories of women who are brave enough to break free from anything that is keeping their voice and passion captive. Stories like Malala Yousafzai, who overcame the tragedy of being shot by the Taliban for standing up for girls’ education and today is one of the youngest advocates for women’s rights.
“Art in all its forms helps to empower, inspire and ground me. I am an ‘art addict.’ ”
This is what Colleen J. Sheehy said when I asked what empowered her to overcome the difficult moments of her life.
I know the power of connection because I know how powerless it feels to be disconnected. I still remember the feeling of walking by myself around downtown Fargo after I moved here from Brazil and didn’t have anyone to call to go for coffee besides my husband (who doesn’t drink coffee).
“I grew up on a farm, you know. I’m a farm girl!”
That’s what Andrea Hochhalter told me when I asked her in our interview for InforumTV.com where she acquired her determi-nation, perseverance and strong work ethic.
Wisdom is not just knowledge but the ability to apply that knowledge to the greater scheme of life.
One of the challenges of our generation is to effectively tap into women’s wisdom in a way that can provoke empowerment and social change.
“Brrrrr – I can’t stand this weather anymore! How can we live in North Dakota?! Brutal winters, no high mountains to ski or oceans to swim. What is still keeping you here?”
That’s what Suzan told me as we met for the first time, at a coffee shop.
I never forgot the year 1987. I was a teenage girl living in my home country, Brazil. My favorite thing to do was go over to my best friend’s house, sit on her bedroom floor around a vinyl record player, and listen to our favorite bands.
Christmas can be a very stressful time, especially if you, like me, are part of the prayer group: “God, please, help me to finish my last minute to-do list and I promise that next year I will be a good girl and start working on my Christmas list in March!”
