The Empowerment of women


So today I am going to write about the things we can do to support each other. Sometimes in life we get so caught up with our problems that they become overwhelming. It’s important to realize that you’re not the only one. The best way to support others is by choosing something that you have dealt with. We can help each other through the experiences that we have dealt with in life. I want to share a great movement with all of you that was shared with me by my mom through Facebook. Right now is a great time in our history because of the internet and we can do so much more than before. Andrea Montoya Mitchell started the         It Can Happen Women's Empowerment group. The group can be found on Facebook at  http://www.facebook.com/pages/It-Can-Happen-Womens-Empowerment-Grp/160513814008698?sk=wall You can also find the group at the website http://www.i-c-h.webs.com/  Andrea Montoya Mitchell  does great things for her community and is always in need for others to help. She doesn't only help women empower themselves but also helps women empower other women. Andrea Montoya Mitchell  and I our both inspired to help end the cycle of poverty, domestic violence, and all the issues that come with being moms in our communities through our children. She is outspoken to school districts and help children in some of the poorest school s in Denver. It’s as simple as making sure that a child has a snack.  No matter what might be going on in your life right now I challenge you to contact Andrea Montoya Mitchell or any other organization that helps others and see how you can help. I will be doing the same in the coming weeks and blogging about my experiences. Helping another person feeds your soul and is worth more than its weight in gold.  Happy Holidays to all of you and always remember during the holiday seasons there is someone less fortunate then yourself and in need!
