THE STORY:

Susan Bates, President/Chair Woman Within International wrote -

Almost 11 years ago, Woman Within changed my life. At the time I attended my Woman Within Weekend I thought my life was pretty good and went to the weekend on the urging of others. I really didn't know what was going to happen and was skeptical as to how I would benefit. I had the profound experience of getting in touch with some deeply hidden shame I was carrying about being a Mother, mistakes I had made and thoughts I had had toward my daughter when she was little and I was a struggling single Mom. For the first time, on my weekend, almost 25 years later, I was able to talk about it and was blessed to have other women share they had had similar experiences. Having the opprotunity to speak about my shame allowed me to begin the healing process of releasing the shame. Today I have tremendous compassion rather than disgust toward the Mother in me and all Parents, knowing we are doing the best we can even when mistakes happen. Now I'm on the Board of Directors of Woman Within International, raising money so that more women can experience the benefits of this transformational work. 

Please join me as I support  Woman Within International in the Crowdrise Giving Tuesday Challenge. Woman Within is a 501c3 nonprofit, so your donation is tax deductible. Assist us in continuing our broad-based efforts to help more women step into their power!
