Rediscovering That I’m Not New To This!


My “spring cleaning” resulted in me rediscovering workbooks I created for my clients and Mother’s group participants in the early 2000’s. This week I came across a workbook that I created for my Mother’s group where I hosted a two-part Women’s History Month celebration. I’m not new to women’s empowerment! My participants spanned age ranges, backgrounds, and employment status. The Women’s History Month workbook contains poetry, motivational quotes, affirmations, self-assessments, word search, goal setting sheets, and facts about women in history.

Did you know that globes were invented by Ellen Fritz in 1875 and that Liquid Paper correction fluid was invented by Bette Nesmith Graham in 1956?

The workbook also contains online and print resources. After looking at the resources pages, I realize that I shared with my group members my current and future reading list. I was working full-time and attending graduate school and raising a daughter and didn’t get through that reading list. I may have to add some of those books back to my current reading list.
