teen challenge 1
Wednesday, December 14th, 2011
Let me tell you a story about Carole.  She was a cute, outgoing, perky little girl who thought everyone was happy, for she found life to be satisfying and fun.  Then at age 10 her parents got a divorce, and all hell broke loose in her perfect world.  Life at home became strained and uncomfortable, and as she was shoved from one parent to the other she began to feel unloved.  She also carried enormous guilt because she believed all the confusion was her fault.

Early in the morning of Tuesday, the 25th of October, it started to rain. After a very hot, dry summer, the earth was unprepared for the amount of rain that was to fall for the next few hours. By early afternoon, water was streaming down the roads of the villages and by early evening, most of these villages had been devastated.

The buildings, many from the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, held up to the water. The floods though, which reached over 6 feet, ravished the insides of the ground floors: the businesses, the churches, the storerooms and cantinas all completely ruined.

There are rare moments when I have an opportunity to engage directly with saving lives.  This past April, I traveled with five amazing women (including two Good News Girlz) and one fortunate man to Honduras to do just that.  I saw change.

More than a decade has passed since I found myself at a Women's Leadership conference reading a piece printed on purple paper that espoused all the great things women are capable of; it was powerful and the words made me feel empowered.  But, when I got to the last sentence I sank into my chair and felt tears in my eyes

Calm, easygoing, and matter of fact, Cindy Lowman accepts what life sends with a sense of humor and deep faith. We spent four days with her and her family and we can attest that living in the mountains of Honduras, three and a half hours from what to most of us would qualify as civilization, she needs both humor and faith.

story corps
Tuesday, May 4th, 2010
Data is fine. Details are good. Information helps. But there's nothing like a good story. A good story can inform, impress or inspire--and sometimes just entertain. Whatever their purpose, stories bring us together as humans and open our minds to possibilities. In 2003 Dave Isay, a radio documentary producer and MacArthur fellow, founded StoryCorps with a mission to collect the stories of everyday people.

When we were kids, finding women in the history books was a tough job. Not many were there to find. Now we've had a string of female Secretaries of State, women astronauts, and two women on the ballot for Vice President of a major political party. Women are finding their way into the history books, and tracking the progress is the National Women's History Project (
