Good Morning!


I thank you for the many emails I received from my recent article on freedom.  It warmed my heart to hear your stories and experiences around what freedom means to you.

For those of us living in North America, we are blessed with opportunities that we often take for granted. It doesn’t take much to see that not everyone on our planet enjoys the same liberties that we do. When I think of my freedom, my thoughts turn to appreciation and gratitude and then to hope.  Hope that in a world of such abundance, that in time, people in all places on earth will one day find freedom and hope.


Several years ago I found an organization called WomenforWomen International.  It is an organization that partners women in abundant nations with women in other parts of the world whose lives have been affected by war.


My first “sister” was a woman in her 50’s who had lost most of her family, including her husband and brothers, to the war in Kosovo. My sponsorship supported her in learning new skills that would help her become self-sufficient and in turn, gain a sense of independence and hope in her life.  In time, my sister graduated from her program and I was in turn partnered with a new sister in the Republic of Congo, another woman whose life had been shattered by war and turmoil.


Although I have not met these courageous and inspiring women, my life has been blessed none the less by their presence. They have touched me with an understanding of how very lucky I am in the circumstances of which chance had me be born into. Regardless of the personal challenges that I have worked through in my own life, they obviously pale in comparison to struggles of hunger and poverty to which I simply cannot relate.  These women keep me connected to the understanding that regardless of whether we live next door or across the globe from one another, we are indeed sisters who must love and support each other as good neighbors and as family do. 


As easy as it is to simply write my check every month, it is my hope that the difference I am making goes beyond the money I send to support my sisters. It is my deepest prayer that as my sisters learn skills that teach them the power of independence, that they know in their hearts that there are women across the globe who care deeply about their well being and that they are not alone in their struggle for survival, independence and in turn, their freedom.


I also pray that I am doing my part to lift up the hearts of others in this side of the world to the understanding that through awareness and consciousness, we can make a difference in the lives of others.  Sending money is only a small part of the difference we can make. Through prayer and conscious thought, we can be guided to cultivate peace within our own lives and in turn, clarity as to our role in bringing forth cooperation, understanding and healing to our planet.


I ask you in this very moment, what is your heart asking of you? What can you do this week to step fully into your power and make a difference in the lives of others?


I applaud you for your courage to know that your life indeed matters. That even in the littlest things, your presence is truly making a difference and making this world a better place.  I am honored and excited to be in this journey with you and eager to see where it is taking us.


Have an inspiring and powerful week!


Many blessings,

Carole's Latest Book Recommendation

Homeland and Other Stories (Paperback)
by Barbara Kingsolver

Kingsolver manages to capture much of the very essence of the human existence in our culturally and socially backward world (and country).

This is a collection of short stories that each deal with the frustrations that average people face in their desire to lead normal, quiet, decent lives. Frequently, her personages are 'different' in some way and their frustrations are compounded in economic, social, cultural and sometimes just personal ways. And the power of persistence, love, and respect is frequently what combats those frustrations. None of these stories are loud and angry, none are suspenseful or thrilling, but each is softly, powerfully moving and thought provoking.

Kingsolver presents her characters in ways that pull in the reader, leaving the reader as an ally, quietly rooting for the protagonist. I always recommend Kingsolver to other readers because she can enlighten you without you even knowing it!
