    Linda Forsythe: "The Power and The Plight of Grandmothers!"

    in Women

    A Hopi Indian Prophecy says, " When the grandmothers are heard, the world will heal!"

    A grandmother plays a major role is the raising of our children around the world and in establishing a peaceful planet!  What might that look like?

    She may have to take action by saying no to anything that is inappropriate or harmful for herself or her grandchildren or even her grown children.
    She may have to courageously refuse to be a party to petty issues raised by others by taking nonaction.
    She may have to think enough of herself to respect her home, her space, her body and her life with great self-care.

    Join me on The Sharon McWilliams Show with the third in my May Series:  Mothers, Motherhood and the Sacred for a look at Linda Forsythe:  The Power and the Plight of Grandmothers! Take the Walk of the Wise Woman with us as we look frankly and courageously at what we as grandmothers need to do for our grandchildren...and seven generations forward.  We have the power to create peace on this beautiful planet;  we have the power to promote a healthy environment for our grandchildren's children;  we have the power through prayer and chutzpah!  We can do this!  Linda Forsythe shares her story and her grandmother rules! 

    Next Monday evening join me for the 4th in my May Series:  Mothers, Motherhood and The Sacred!  with Susan Newton:  Honoring the Sacred Through the Divine Feminine!

    Grandmothers Speak with Sharon McErlane

    in Spirituality

        Sharon McErlane is a psychotherapist from Laguna Beach, Ca. who in 1996 received a vision that changed her life.  The Council of the Grandmothers appeared as she walked her dog and revealed what must be done to bring the masculine and feminine energies on Earth back into balance.  “Earth has suffered too long from an excess of yang and insufficient yin,” they said.  “We have come to correct this.”  Sharon has been sharing their empowerment into the energy of yin for over ten years.  She will take the Grandmothers’ message and empowerment to Lithuania and the Netherlands in May and June and hold ceremonies in five cities there.
        Each month she holds a Grandmothers’ Empowerment ceremony and meeting at her home in Laguna Beach, Ca. and passes on the Grandmothers’ latest teachings to women and men.  At this time, thousands of women have received the Grandmothers’ Empowerment, many men have received the Cloak of Comfort and almost seventy Grandmothers’ groups have sprung up over the world.  Sharon has written “A Call to Power: the Grandmothers Speak,” which describes her experiences with these wise women.  To find out more about the Grandmothers’ message and a group near you, go to www.grandmothersspeak.com.

    BONUS: Campaign for Fair Education Funding

    in Moms and Family

    Education has taken my family from scrubbing floors, to managing a hospital. I am so fortunate that my grandmothers recognized the importance of obtaining an education and worked tirelessly to provide learning opportunities to their children. And for generations the value of education has been passed passed down.

    I became an elementary school teacher, so that I could impart that same value in education and lifelong love of learning upon other children. When given the opportunity to receive a high-quality education, all students can achieve. I've witnessed first-hand students who come from some of the poorest neighborhoods and most challenging of circumstances grow up to earn college degrees and achieve greatness both personally and professionally. Every child deserves that opportunity!

    Please join me on this BONUS episode of Mom Talk with Denise LaRosa, as I speak with Allies for Children Executive Director Patrick Dowd and Hear Me Project Manager Jessica Kaminsky about the need for fair education funding in Pennsylvania, and how parents, educators, children and caregivers can get involved!

    You too can speak out for students across the state! To find out how to get involved, visit FairFundingPA.org!

    Disclosure: I’m teaming up with the Campaign for Fair Education Funding to speak out for students across Pennsylvania. Although I am receiving some form of compensation, all opinions remain my own. #FairFundingPA

    Wisdom from the Grandmothers

    in Radio

    Violence Against the Girl  and Child Marriage: Voices from  Grandmothers        Host: Dr. Ada Okika Co-Host: Mrs Chi Ezekwueche Research and News-anchor: Dr. Ifechukwu Anikpe,  Ms. Amara Nwosu   Discrimination and violence against girls and violations of their human rights still happen till today. The United Nations felt a need to raise awareness of the challenges that millions of girls face every day. In December 2011, the UN declared that it would annually observe the International Day of the Girl Child, starting from October 11, 2012. Just as Violence against women is a global course to the United Nations’ Community, the International organizations and working groups, violence against the girl child has much rooted concerns in the global pursuit on the Future Women Want. This calls for more serious commitment that in the end the future women want will include total eradication of all violence against the girl child that in the end what the girl child wants is equality between boys and girls.
