When we brought each of our daughters home from the hospital, I remember wishing for a “how to” manual. After all, women have been having babies for centuries. Surely there must be a book I can read that will tell me how to coach them and navigate through their years ahead, to set them on the path to confidence, right?
Simply Be Your Magnificent Self! A Guide for Empowering Girls and Women is that tidy toolkit we all can carry with us through life to help empower our girls, friends, and ourselves. The beauty of this book is that it spans generations and genders. When placed in the hands of its readers, it will change lives and help build the foundation for girls and women to value and celebrate their strengths, activate their power, and share their voices.
This book is a call to action for all of us because our girls matter and investing in their limitless potential and our collective bright futures is one of the most powerful legacies we can leave. We all share a sense of responsibility to leave this world better than when we arrived.
By using this book as a tool to help our girls realize their gifts and become the “bosses of their own brains” and also by putting it into the hands of the ones who love girls and women, we have changed the world. Thank you, Donna and Cindy, for your tireless hearts and hands!
