These are from women just like you and me that might not be famous or well known (yet) that demonstrate the power of kindness and storytelling. These are quick excerpts from our book that recently was released,
Flying by the Seats of Their Skirts.

n 2006 I was living in a 1975 stripped out Chevy van in a Walmart parking lot in Denver, Colorado with my Rottweiler and my cat. I was homeless, terrified and bordering on suicidal. I was working two jobs about 60 hours per week and could not find affordable housing. My father had just died, I had quit my job as the editor of a small town newspaper and had no idea what would happen next. I just trusted that God had a plan and everything would work out. it did.

PINKK on POINT: Resilience is strong. Strong is kind and powerful. At times we need to be resilient to be kind.
