Speaking of powerful



I recently found an amazing website for women and girls of all ages:
http://bravegirlsclub.com

They are doing some important work in building the self worth of women/girls and helping to change destructive tendencies.

The picture above is from one of my favorite blog posts found here

Hungry no more..


Whew, where do I start.
I have been hearing rumblings about this trilogy for roughly a year from different friends but for one reason or another haven't gotten around to reading the books until now.
Which I finished in 2 days, yes all three in 2 days, and they were work days y'all.
That's how good they were.

Very powerful.
I am so grateful they are popular and that teens especially are reading and devouring these books.
We need to be reminded that at the core we are all human and the same.
No better and no worse just faced with different challenges, locations and upbringings that shape our perceptions about life.
With everything going on in the world I think that is a message we all need, especially the young people who are discovering who they are and how they wish to treat each other.


And how important and ok it is to question leadership that you know in your gut feels wrong.

I won't say much more, just that you should read the books.
And... maybe the next time someone drives you crazy take a breath and try to look at them through the eyes of someone who loves them.

Bonus - quick sketch of the character Effie. Couldn't resist.


NOW....
