Editor-In-Chief “Nurturing Leadership is a Lifestyle”

I

n our last issue we spoke about the past 40 years of women leading women, the incredible wisdom, and transformative reciprocal learning processes that we encounter for continued growth. Empowering women is the best weapon in the fight against global poverty. From here to Africa, women around the world are striving to improve life for their children and communities, while often facing the harshest of circumstances. Women make up half of the world's population. When women do not have the opportunity to secure an education, or earn money, or have a voice in family or community decisions, half of the world's creativity, intellect, and determination are not put to use.

Global Empowerment

EMPOWERING WOMEN The best weapon in the fight against global poverty

rom here to Africa, women around the world are striving to improve life for their children and communities, while often facing the harshest of circumstances. Women make up half of the world's population. When women do not have the opportunity to secure an education, or earn money, or have a voice in family or community decisions, half of the world's creativity, intellect, and determination are not put to use. These are barriers that women in the developing world face every day, and as a result, we all suffer when women's voices remain silent. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways you can help.

While the women you look up to have certainly had to overcome their share of obstacles, women across the globe continue to fight against long odds to break the chains of poverty. Women work two-thirds of the world's working hours, but earn 10 percent of the world's income and own 1 percent of the world's property, according to statistics from the nonprofit CARE, which works to empower women as a key method of combating global poverty. However, research also shows that women have a significant role in breaking the poverty - especially mothers. Children of educated mothers are 40 percent more live past the age of 5. Furthermore, it is mothers who are most likely to ensure extra family income goes toward educating their daughters. This is an important given the fact that each additional year of school boosts a girl's future income by as 20 percent.

Empowering a woman can mean breaking the cycle of poverty for her family - and sometimes, her entire community - forever. To have this type of impact, you need to do a little homework to make sure your resources are reaching the people who need them the most. Nowadays, making a donation is as easy as clicking the mouse and entering a few keystrokes. While the act of donating has been simplified, charities are also working harder to educate donors on how their funds will be used to have a real impact in someone's life. Below are some tips to help you select a worthy charitable cause.

Global Empowerment * Make sure your money is going to the right place. Take time to review the organization's mission, programs, and financial information to ensure it is compatible with what you are hoping to support. There are also free online databases, like charitynavigator.org, that will give you more detailed information about a charity's finances and activities. * Even better than the peace of mind achieved through vetting the charity of your choice is being able to follow what your dollars are doing after you've donated. This will allow you and the woman you are honoring to take pride and ownership in your donation. For example, Join My Village, which connects women in the United States with women and families in Malawi, provides donors with stories, videos, and journals that allow donors to see how their money is empowering women in poverty. So far, donations to the program have enabled more than 500 women to participate in village savings and loan programs that enable them to save, borrow, and start small businesses to earn more money for their families. * Stretch your dollar. Charities often have special programs that will provide matching grants for your donation, in effect doubling how much you give. General Mills is currently partnering with the nonprofit organization CARE to match donations to Join My Village to fight poverty in Africa.

* If you are unable to make a monetary donation, consider donating your time. At www.joinmyvillage.com, you can participate in free activities to unlock donations to the organization while learning more about the goals of the program.

* Get excited and educated. There are a lot of good educational materials out there on just about every cause. For example, in the book "Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide," Pulitzer-Prize winning journalists and husband and wife team Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn lay out methods for ending global poverty through empowering women. It's an educational and inspirational book for you, and anyone who has inspired you to overcome obstacles and achieve greatness in your own life. Follow these tips and you can do your part to ensure women around the world, and generations of women to come, will have the resources to empower themselves, their families, and their communities. We can all do our part to fight global poverty - one woman at a time. Silke Endress, Lifestyle of the Lady CEO International Professional Women’s Magazine

Women and Money

Every woman should have a healthy relationship with money, but the reality is that many women still heavily rely on men to handle their finances. Now is the time for women to break out of the traditional role and take action to gain financial independence. Personal finance expert Suze Orman shares advice on what every woman should carry in her purse, and the financial knowledge she should carry with her at all times. Reading materials: Once a month, read a financial newspaper or magazine, such as the Wall Street Journal, Kiplinger's or Smart Money. No need to read cover to cover, just flip through to get a feel for current financial trends. You might be surprised by what catches your eye. Debit card: These days it often makes more sense to pay your bills with a debit card online a service that should be free. If you're worried about safety, don't be. Banks spend a lot of money to ensure that their networks are secure. In fact, paying your bills online may prove to be safer than mailing a check because the electronic payment is automatic. All your transactions are recorded and can be verified 24/7, allowing you to track debits and credits at your convenience. Remember, organization equals control. "Milk money": Save a lot and indulge a little. Even in tough times, there will always be expenses that may be outside your budget. To cover these purchases, consider taking on a side job that can provide supplemental earnings opportunity. Direct selling opportunities, like Avon (www.avon.com), can provide additional income based on the amount of time you can commit. For as little as $10, you can get started with a company that works for women because you can choose when, where and how much you want to work, while having the flexibility to work a full-time job and care for your family. Family photos: Keeping your family close in view - whether in your wallet photo flipbook or on your phone - serves as a daily reminder of your loved ones and what you can impart to them. Admittedly, sensible financial management is not something we are all born with, it must be learned. Feel confident that you can contribute to your family's financial success by educating your daughters and granddaughters about money and savings. Give them solid financial knowledge to stow in their purses for a lifetime. For more action steps you can take in 2010, and information on Suze Orman's Action Plan, visit www.suzeorman.com

HELP YOUR CHILD BECOME A CITIZEN OF THE WORLD

Our world is more connected than ever before. One of the best things you can do to prepare your kids for the future is to raise them as citizens of the world. Here are some ways that you can start to bring various cultures into the lives of your children. * Invite the world into your home by hosting an exchange student. Hosting a high school foreign exchange student goes beyond a brief meeting and forges a lifelong bond between your children and students from abroad. Families that want to host a student can contact EF Foundation for Foreign Study, which brings more students to the United States than any other exchange program, at www.effoundation.org. * Sample cuisine from other countries. Take the family out for a meal at a restaurant that serves food from different countries or consider preparing world cuisine recipes together at home. * Learn another language as a family. Consider learning a language as a family through community education - you can even download language instruction podcasts or mp3s from the Web. Learning about the cultures and people of the world really does begin at home. By helping them develop a broad worldview, you're giving your kids a world of possibilities.

hen people ask Michelle Obama to describe herself, she doesn't hesitate. First and foremost, she is Malia and Sasha's mom. As First Lady, Michelle Obama looks forward to continuing her work on the issues close to her heart supporting military families, helping working women balance career and family, and encouraging national service.

Mrs. Laura Bush was a champion of President Bush's ambitious agenda and a gracious representative of the American people; she has dedicated herself to advancing education and promoting the well- being of women and families worldwide. Hillary Rodham Clinton observed, "Our lives are a mixture of different roles. Most of us are doing the best we can to find whatever the right balance is. . For me, that balance is family, work, and service." "My life really began when I married my husband," says Nancy Reagan, who in the 1950's happily gave up an acting career for a permanent role as the wife of Ronald Reagan and mother to their children. Rarely have the American people greeted a First Lady and the press with the approbation and warmth accorded to Barbara Pierce Bush. Perhaps this is prompted by the image she calls "everybody's grandmother." Silke Endress, Lifestyle of the Lady CEO International Professional Women’s Magazine

Although Tyra was an instant sensation on the runway, she made her breakthrough in commercials and television appearances, Banks' first big screen role came in 1994 when she co-starred in the drama Higher Learning, followed by Disney’s Life-Size, where she co-stared with Lindsay Lohan, Love Stinks (1999), Love & Basketball (2000), Coyote Ugly (2000) and Halloween: Resurrection (2002).

Sophisticated Intentions

It started in April of 1966, God ordained Paula to be an inspiration to millions around the world. Her journey began. Paula had a father who committed suicide, a mother that was an alcoholic, and people who sexually abused her for seven years. Paula White: Pastor, Motivational, Author, Life Coach, Philanthropist, Speaker, Mother, TV Personality, Preacher, and Teacher. Behind her unassuming beauty and gentle, girlish charm a story of tragedy, triumph, poverty & prosperity. She overcame tumultuous early years to dedicate her life helping others transform circumstances discover God's unique plan of destiny for their lives. Paula White's story reverberates with men, women, and children-from business executives to the unemployed, from the rich and famous, to the impoverished and the poverty stricken. In talking with her it becomes apparent that "she understands, she's been there, and she knows how to get out.� Hers a voice of the 21st century: a voice for the voiceless, boldly declaring a message of hope, truth, and wholeness compelling the attention of those seeking to discover their purpose in life - those seeking to launch their destiny. Today, Paula White hosts international television program, spearheads humanitarian efforts world-wide, and travels the world, fulfilling her mission and call -to Transform Lives, Heal Hearts, and Win Souls.

Sophisticated Intentions At the age of eighteen, Paula was introduced to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Shortly after Paula surrendered her life to the Lord, she received a divine visitation in which God gave her a vision of multitudes of millions of people as far as her eyes could see. In the vision, every time she opened her mouth and began to declare the Word of the Lord, there was a visible manifestation of the power of God - souls were saved, the sick were healed, and the broken were restored. Conversely, when she was silent, people began to fall into utter darkness. In her finite mind she could not adequately quantify or enumerate the sea of humanity that she saw…but, since that time, Paula has kept the goal of 10 million souls to remind her of the awesome responsibility-yet achievable mission-of winning multiple souls for Christ. It's been said that she serves "faith food.” What she serves is the Word of God - a word full of the faith to take you from the "familiar" to the "future.” "Faith causes change. Anytime there is change, there is opportunity. That includes the opportunity to grow more, see more, and be more. Yes, it also includes the opportunity to fail," as Paula puts it, "but failure can be a step along the way to completion of a goal. Failure is not final!" Acts 10:34 tells us that God is no respecter of persons. That means that God can use anyone as long as they yield themselves to His will. That fact was the driving force that catapulted Paula White into her destiny as a powerful vessel of God. "I know that life is filled with challenges and opportunities and I believe that God wants us to face adversity equipped to win. God wants us to turn our stumbling blocks into stepping stones," says Paula.

Sophisticated Intentions

S E R V IN G FROM Y OU R OVERFLOW

I

t’s been said, “You must fill your cup before you can pour into others.” When our cup is full we can not only nurture our lives but the lives of others. It is not by accident or coincidence that we live today. We were conceived and birthed to live an extraordinary, fulfilled life so that we may nurture and fulfill the lives of others, especially the lost, confused, and needy. We must take it a step further and consider the power and reward of serving others in a different way. The key to staying fulfilled in your service to others is to “keep your cup full and serve others from your overflow.”

Catrice M. Jackson M.S., LMHP, LPC Empowerment Speaker, Love Your Life Expert and Author of Delicious, The Savvy Woman's Guide to Living a Sweet, Sassy and satisfied Life www.catricejacksonspeaks

The ability to serve from our overflow can be a nurturing experience for you and the people you serve. To nurture is to feed and protect. To nurture is to support and encourage someone during a period of time in their life. To nurture is to bring up, educate, and mentor another during a transition in their life. Serving others, mentoring, and leadership have a powerful effect when it’s anchored in the intent of nurturance. We must be very intentional about the quality of what we give instead of the quantity. I don’t know about you but I’d rather have a small, beautiful authentic diamond than a big fake one. Unfortunately, that’s how some people give and lead in life. They do it flamboyantly just to be seen and recognized while others who give in genuine, small does often go unsung. If you have been called to lead or desire to lead, do it with authenticity and nurturance. The goal is to help others release their greatness by living and leading from your own greatness. Begin first by discovering and releasing your greatness and nurturing yourself. Know that you have value and that you are a gift to the world. Nurture your life by taking care of you, putting yourself first and filling your cup with joy, peace, and love. When your cup overflows with self-confidence, wisdom, discernment, and personal power you can nurture the lives of others by serving them from your overflow. If you desire to dramatically transform your life and lives of others begin living and leading only from the unique “quality” of who you are and you’ll be amazed how you can nurture the souls of others.

ECONOMY SENDS MORE AMERICANS BACK TO KITCHEN Forty percent of Americans say they are cooking at home more often, as a result of the current economic situation, according to a new survey by the American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR). Cooking at home is the latest, and possibly smartest, thing to be doing in light of the economy, nationwide healthy eating habits and the interest in creating more family together time. Cooking at home means that there are no mystery ingredients and you can serve yourself customized, high quality products. By incorporating fewer preservatives, less fat and less salt into your menus, you can help your family feel healthier. You can also save money by stocking your refrigerator, pantry, and cupboard, rather than paying tips to waiters. The key to success in the kitchen is to learn how to cook what's hand, maximize the menu as much as possible, and use leftovers wisely. One perfectly versatile staple to have in your pantry is DOLE canned fruit, which can be used in appetizers, main dishes, salads, desserts, and even beverages. As fat-free, saturated fat-free, and cholesterol-free ingredients, mandarin oranges, pineapple, and tropical fruit make the perfect ingredients for tasty and affordable meals. For your next meal, try the recipes found at www.DoleCookOff.com. And if you discover you have a knack for mixing pantry staples, consider entering the Dole California Cook-Off recipe contest (through April 30) for a chance to win a four day getaway to Los Angeles to compete for cash and a chance to have your recipe printed on thousands of DOLE canned fruit or juice labels. The DOLE California Cook Off will be held at the Epicurean School of Culinary Arts on June 26 and judged by celebrity chef Ben Ford.

A Women’s Health To add a fresh, new recipe to your menu arsenal, try this easy and tasty dish, created by Chef Ford, combining canned DOLE crushed pineapple and shrimp with just a hint of spice to make a lighter, curry-inspired meal.

SHRIMP CURRY WITH PINEAPPLE-GINGER RICE Ingredients: Makes: four servings 1-1/4 cups long grain rice 1-2/3 cups water 1-1/2 tablespoons fresh ginger, peeled and grated 1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided 1 can (8 ounces) DOLE Crushed Pineapple, drained 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil 2 teaspoons chopped fresh mint 1 large onion, quartered 1 (2-inch long) piece fresh ginger, peeled 1/2 teaspoon sugar 1/4 cup vegetable oil 1-1/2 teaspoons curry powder 1 to 2 fresh Serrano chiles, halved lengthwise 1 cup chicken broth 1 can (14 ounces) coconut milk 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice 1 pound medium to large shrimp, peeled and de-veined

Combine water, rice, ginger, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in large sauce pan over medium-high heat to boiling. Reduce heat, cook, covered for 15 minutes or until rice is tender. Remove from heat; let stand covered for five minutes. Stir in crushed pineapple, basil, and mint. Keep warm. Place onion and ginger in food processor container; cover and pulse until finely chopped. Cook onion mixture, remaining salt and sugar in hot oil in large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring frequently until onion begins to brown, about five minutes. Stir in curry powder and chiles, cook, stirring frequently about two minutes. Stir in broth, coconut milk and lime juice, simmer for five to eight minutes stirring occasionally until thickened. Stir in shrimp and simmer, stirring occasionally, about three minutes or until shrimp turns pink. Serve shrimp curry with a scoop of rice. Garnish rice with broiled or grilled pineapple slice.

CREATIVELY CUT THE FAT: SUBSTITUTE WITH APPLES Looking to eat better? Tried low-fat and reduced-sodium products, but they just don't taste the same? If you want to modify your diet without giving up the tastes you love, substituting natural ingredients, rather than modified versions of unhealthy ingredients, could do the trick. Tree Top, a cooperative of 1,000 grower-owners and producer of apple sauce, apple juice and a variety of other apple products, offers these suggestions for using apple products as substitutes. * Replace butter with apple sauce in baking recipes. This will cut the fat in a recipe by nearly 75 percent. * Marinate meat or fish in different varieties of apple juice to add extra flavoring without the extra sodium and substantial calories. * Reduce the sugar used in many recipes by replacing white sugar with apple juice. * Freeze different varieties of apple juice in plastic cups to make frozen treats or in ice cube trays to zest up water.

WHAT IS 'WELLNESS?' HOW TO DEFINE YOUR PERSONAL HEALTH

"Wellness" has become a buzzword among the public, health care practitioners and legislators alike. But what exactly does it mean, and how can people benefit from it? According to the American Chiropractic Association (ACA), wellness is "an active process that promotes health and enhances quality of life." "With the enactment of health care reform legislation earlier this year, the public is going to hear more and more about the importance of wellness, staying healthy and ultimately reducing health care costs caused by chronic diseases such as heart disease and diabetes," says ACA President Dr. Rick McMichael. "If you're interested in health and wellness, a good place to begin is by talking about it with a doctor of chiropractic." A doctor of chiropractic (DC) will screen you for diseases, but he or she also will talk to you about your lifestyle and behaviors that may put you at risk for injury or illness. It important to note that chiropractic's approach is drug-free; instead of writing a prescription, a DC offers spinal adjustments, rehabilitative exercises, nutritional counseling and lifestyle modifications to move patients toward optimum function and wellness.
