Welcome new listeners.  Do you need encouragement?  Have you spent your entire life and career meeting everyone else's needs?  The kids are flying the coop, and retirement is right around the corner.  How about your dreams? Do you remember them? Would you like to find them once again?  Do you need a group of sisters or like minded women to belong to?  Are you a bit on the quiet side?  Maybe you are an HSP, an Empath, or an Introvert. Well, this is a great place for you.  I love to encourage, inspire, and empower you.  While the message is powerful...the demeanor is gentle.  Just a perfect match for you.
