    It’s that time of year again! Schools from Kindergarten to College are back in session and assignments, readings, and projects have begun. For those of us out of school, does that mean we are done learning? How and where can we expand our learning experiences? What would you go back to school for? What’s something new that you are currently learning or would like to learn?

    Communication Skills

    11/08/2017 Duration: 43min

    Being able to communicate effectively is the most important of all life skills. Be clear and concise and be confident in what you are going to say before you start communicating. Communication is simply the act of transferring information from one place to another. It may be vocally (using voice), written (using printed or digital media such as books, magazines, websites or emails), visually (using logos, maps, charts or graphs) or non-verbally (using body language, gestures and the tone and pitch of voice).

    10/06/2017 Duration: 47min

    Today we’re going to be talking about building confidence. Whether it be in your health, your career, or in your relationships!

    Creating a Homegrown Living Space

    30/04/2017 Duration: 45min

    Today we are going to be talking about creating and living with a “home grown” lifestyle. We’ll be covering topics like where to start, costs, home gardens, do it yourself recipes, and urban farm animals! A strong trend is today’s lifestyle is self-sufficiency and living a more “homemade” and natural lifestyle. People are growing their own food, making their own cleaning products, and even raising animals for meat, milk, or eggs! I think I would like a couple of fruit trees but then I am afraid of what might go to waste and for me that defeats the purpose.

  • Finding Your Happiness

    Finding Your Happiness

    31/03/2017 Duration: 42min

    Today we are talking about Finding Your happiness. It is really common and quite easy to ask someone, “Are you happy?”. We usually respond, “Yes, of course I’m happy. I have a happy life.” But what if we really stop and think about our lives, in the moment? We are all so busy and moving so fast, we really don’t take the time to think about the things we do, if they make us happy, and if we really want to be doing them. We are going to talk about using tools to find our happiness, and focusing on it to better our lives.

  • What changes are you making? Are you looking for a new beginning?

    What changes are you making? Are you looking for a new beginning?

    17/02/2017 Duration: 42min

    Change is scary and we need to conquer those fears and tell ourselves we can do it. If you feel like you failed the first time, just look at how far you have progressed and pick up from there. Have confidence in yourself and a friend help you along the way. You have only failed if you have never tried!!!

  • How do you find your Joy? How do you find the good in your life?

    How do you find your Joy? How do you find the good in your life?

    27/01/2017 Duration: 46min

    We spend part of our lives trying to be more positive and joyful in everyday situations. We often wonder why this can be difficult for some and easier for others. A simple smile can certainly change someone else's day. Treating others with respect and a smile can add joy to your life and will definitely add to theirs. In today's’ world most find people are more focused with outside sources instead of what is right in front of them. We have become a world that lives in the social media realm hiding behind a facade. The days of politeness have started to disappear, so let's talk about how we can begin the change within ourselves and hopefully pass on to others.

    So how many of you can’t wait for the Olympics every four years? Do any of you try to watch every sport they televise and lose sleep in the process?

    01/06/2016 Duration: 29min

It’s important to acknowledge hard work and outstanding performance, show people they are valued, and sometimes to simply show gratitude or appreciation.

  • How Women’s Roles Changed Over The Last 100 Years

    How Women’s Roles Changed Over The Last 100 Years

    20/05/2016 Duration: 40min

    Girls today are unaware of the limitations women experienced 100 years ago. They take for granted the opportunities presented to them and don’t know about the struggles women had to fight to conquer equality and acceptance. Learning about our history goes way beyond learning about a few famous women during one month. The scope of the jobs women could hold were those of housewives and teachers! Women never held positions of what the men considered important. Thankfully, as women who were called upon during WWII to pick up the jobs the men could no longer do, we had finally found our place in the world.

    To Have Good Friendships You Need To Be A Good Friend

    26/04/2016 Duration: 44min

    Friends may come in and out of your life for a season - we have friends of convenience (work, neighborhood, hobbies) and lives change. Not all friendships last forever, and mourning a friendship that has ended or withered away over time does not necessarily mean either of you were bad friends to each other. What it does mean life takes us on a different routes sometimes and there are more people for us to be connected to in the future.

    15/02/2016 Duration: 36min

    We tackle the subject of being an authentic women. Do you talk about other women behind their backs? Are you being true to yourself? As women and as role models to our sons, daughters, and others we need to treat women with respect and not be judgmental. We have no idea what other women are going through so is it fair to talk about them to others? We should be walking up to them and telling them we are there for them and they have our support.
