graceful for young women

Why write a letter?

This younger generation is all around us, but sometimes we forget the types of things they are thinking and walking through. As a way to introduce my new book, Graceful, I wanted to encourage my peers to remember what it was like to be sixteen again.

Perhaps writing a letter to ourselves will help us to see the people who are sixteen still. And maybe be moved with compassion on their behalf.

I invited some friends to lead the charge this week and be the first to write letters. Some new ones posting today:

 Holley Gerth

Shannan – Flower Patch Farmgirl

Jen Schmidt from Balancing Beauty and Bedlam
