Grenada gets a library

Yesterday I attended the launch of the Grenada Community Library and Resource Centre. The library is the brainchild of author and social activist Oonya Kempadoo. It’s hard to believe that it has been more than a decade since hurricane Ivan destroyed the national library. Since then, there has been a void and this is now filled by the GCLRC. Spread the word. Let others know the library is here and open to all. It boasts a wide selection of books that will fit the reading preference of all. The library is located at Lucas Street, St. George’s, opposite the law office of Henry Henry & Bristol and opens Monday to Saturday from 10am. Support the library if you can by way of donations of volunteering your time. The librabry is a non-profit, so all support will be appreciated.   A few pics from the launch below..

Investing, Finance and Disaster Preparedness

So I’m getting an early start this year. No stickin’! The first Cocktails & Conversations for 2017 comes up on January 18th. This time, we’ve changed the venue to The Connection at Kirani James  Blvd, St. George’s. In this installment of Cocktails & Conversations, we’ll be partnering with two local entities to discuss issues that should be of concern to us all. We’ll be having lively conversations on financial planning and wise investing, thanks to the GIDC, the Grenada Industrial Development Corporation and we’ll also host a conversation with NADMA, the National Disaster Management Authority on preparing for natural disasters, in and out of season. Let’s start the new year with sound financial advice and the knowledge and strategies and other general info we should know to stay safe in the event of a disaster. RSVP to attend by emailing me on email@femmepowered.org or calling the numbers on the flyer… View Post

Peace & Fortune

Hello darlings. Welcome to 2017. I wish you peace in your heart and fortune in your steps this year and beyond. If you have been a friend or supporter to FemmePowered in 2016 and before, I would like to say thank you. Every bit of encouragement and support helps. On the 30-31st we held our first retreat, Release & Unleash. It was an amazing, life changing experience that ended way too soon. If you missed it, no worries. I’ll be hosting another in the first quarter of this year, so stay tuned by subscribing to the blog or the mailing list. So what’s in store for FemmePowered in 2017?

7 things I embraced in 2016

As 2016 winds down, I’ve been putting a lot of thought into the things that I learned or embraced and how they are changing, or have changed me. I thought I’d share some of these with you. I’d love to hear a few of yours, too. 1. The importance of feeding my soul Anything can thrive once it’s fed, loved and nurtured. We can spend much of our days running through to-do-lists, making plans, going, striving and ultimately neglecting the inner self. This year I purposed to make time to feed the inner me. So far, it has been a revealing and rewarding experience. I’m liking what I see so far. Most days. But the more time I spend feeding my soul with prayer, journal writing and consuming material that builds me up, the more I feel a step closer to the woman I was designed to be. 2. The power of… View Post
