Publishers Blog July 2024 | Accepting Help is an Admirable Trait

Accepting Help is an Admirable Trait In this month's issue of Today's Woman, we celebrate the winners of the 2024 Most Admired Woman Awards, each embodying the strength, resilience, and grace we all aspire to. As we honor these exceptional women, I want to reflect on a trait that is often overlooked but is profoundly admirable: the ability to accept help.

Don't Let Your Dreams Expire The Lemon Bar Lesson Sometimes life gives us lemons, and sometimes it gives us lemon bar mix. Recently, I decided to bake lemon bars with my granddaughter, a sweet treat we’d both been looking forward to making together. As I reached for the box of mix that had been sitting on my pantry shelf for over a year, my excitement turned to disappointment when I discovered it was no longer good.

Publishers Blog March 2024 | Redefining Value: Here’s to all the Fallen Girls

In a world where historical narratives often glorify male strength and dominance, it's essential to pause and reflect on the intrinsic value of every individual, regardless of gender. As I sat contemplating the significance of having a granddaughter, I couldn't help but confront the unsettling reality of how society has long prioritized boys over girls.
