A while ago as I sat prepping for an upcoming event. I came across a nugget and thought I'd share an excerpt with you. Why can’t women get along, it’s because we are afraid to be vulnerable, afraid to be soft, afraid to be hurt, most of all afraid of our power. So we become… Continue reading Always Sisters ~ Always Friends

About 30 years ago, our Pastor gave my mother and I a prophetic word from the Lord. He shared that we would have a “model relationship” one that others would look upon and desire. If I went by what was going on at that time it would certainly seem as though he had missed God.… Continue reading PWG Highlights – Tonia and mom

There is a poem by Teresa Mahieu that I choose to help give you a snippet of my mom, Lula Alexander. The beauty of a woman is not in... the clothes she wears, the figure she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen from her eyes,… Continue reading PWG Highlights – Cynethia and Lula Bell

Truly it’s not over until God says so. As I look over my life; I can say that I AM BLESSED! Where the statistics speak negatively regarding the lives of those raised by teenaged parents I can say with authority, NO, not me! We know the negative story that the world tells of children who grew up in poverty and in homes with parents addicted to drugs; I can firmly say, by the grace of God, that’s not my story!

For most of us as adolescence we were told about puberty, menstruation and pregnancy; but not about menopause. It’s humorous that it took us almost 12 years to get to puberty and only 12 consecutive months to confirm that we are menopausal. Menopause is the time when a woman’s menstrual period ends. Menopause is considered… Continue reading I’m Not Alone
It is something to lose someone any time of year, but I say a special prayer for those who have lost a loved one during or around the holiday season(s).

Save The Date Mother & Daughter Brunch Someone asked what's the Mother & Daughter Brunch all about.

We came up with… Continue reading Save The Date
I will assume there are several women out there who are like me who prefer a female OB/GYN. My reason though it is humorous now, was not funny at first. My story began, years ago when I was a KIDS Church leader. It was time for my annual check-up and so off to the doctors… Continue reading Dr. Who?

Years ago, when I began experiencing several symptoms of menopause I was afraid to talk to anyone for fear that they would think I lost my mind. But the opposite was true, it wasn't until I began sharing ...that I realized I am not alone.
