Introducing myself and my journal

About Me:
I am a stay at home mother of 3 who found Beadforlife by watching a TV show. I have fallen in love with the beads, the cause, the women across oceans who take their lives literally in their hands every day. They inspire me, they lift me up and their spirits and energy intoxicate me. I cry everytime I watch the video that comes with the home parties. I cry for my heart breaks to see them live they way they do, then I cry beacuse my heart fills with the joy, spirit and hope that radiates from these women. I want and need to do more with my own life to help a country far away to make something of theirs.

My Vision for the Future:
Spending time in Africa

Hello & Welcome

Hello and welcome to PulseWire.

I am not familiar with Beadforlife but it sounds very powerful. Is there a website? You could add it to your profile if you want.

You should have a look at the 'My Voice' - 'Expand your community' section of PulseWire. Here you can search for members by country. You can see just what amazing things our members from Africa are doing.

Best wishes,

Katie
