Make a simple Gratitude Jar
It is really simple to make a Gratitude Jar. I learned how to make a Gratitude Jar from my friend, Diane Carden. I like to use old or new canning jars for my Gratitude Jars but any kind of jar will work as long as it has a wide mouth. You can recycle one right from your kitchen to make this really easy empowerment tool. These also make great holiday or birthday gifts, too! Here's how: Start with a clean wide mouthed jar of any size. I like mine to be fairly large though so I can fill it up! Make a tag ...

To Heal Do Your Deep Work
There are many days when we can feel unloved, uncared for, invisible, unseen, unheard, and even unwanted. It's important to understand that these feelings derive from unhealed wounds. To be empowered means that you are willing to do the deep work that is required to heal yourself.

Healing starts from within.
The Pinwheel Girl is Nude! Why is that?
Anatomy of a Pinwheel Girl Oftentimes I am asked why is the Pinwheel Girl nude and why doesn't she have breasts? Where are her hands? Feet? Does she have a face? Despite some absent features, her anatomy is very recognizable and simple. You know instantly when you see her that she is female but there is a lot of symbolism to her form. When I created her, much of her outcome was serendipitous. It wasn't until I started really pondering her detail and lack of detail that I realized how much was there in the void.

Welcome to the World of the Pinwheel Girl!
I’m so glad you’re here. I’ve been waiting for you. I would recognize you if we met. I am you. I am Every Woman.
Who is the Pinwheel Girl?
The Pinwheel Girl is a new icon for womanhood who empowers women to be true to themselves, live the lives they love and want, and pursue their dreams fearlessly.
She offers encouragement through seven stages of midlife transitions and transformation – from the initial stages of confusion and despair through the middle stages of expansion to the final stages of clarity and redemption.
The Pinwheel Girl gently reminds women of the power of their inner voice and challenges them to share their uniqueness with the world. She was once a literal pinwheel stuck to a stick, spinning endlessly in a cycle of dizzying lifelessness. But then one day she decided it was time to stop spinning in one place. She jumped off the stick, unfolded her flaps and morphed into a universal female form.
She now follows the wind, a metaphor for the inner voice, and shares her poetic messages of empowerment, healing, affirmation, and life stages with women of all ages and life experience.
What’s here for you?
• Information on seven stages of midlife transitions and transformation
• Quotes, stories, poetry, videos, photos and art to inspire you
• Resources to assist you on your journey
• Everyday teachers and symbols to help you cope with life’s difficult events
• And much more
When we confront past choices, let go of painful memories, or forge a new path, taking that first step is always difficult. These little pinwheels, stopping and starting with hesitancy, illustrate how delicate the beginning of the journey can be. But with perseverance, we can catch our stride and move along our path as we should. Take a look. There are teachers everywhere.
I hope what you find here will inspire you to contemplate the depth of your inner voice, the power of change and transition in your life as an unexpected gift, and the hope that always resides in your heart.
Hold on, even if it’s unfamiliar…help arrives in unexpected ways from the unexpected.
Stop spinning, jump off the stick, and fly with the Pinwheel Girl. I’ll meet you in the Sky! After all, that’s where your dreams reside.
An empowered woman is a gift to the world!

Here’s what one reader said: “I read The Pinwheel Girl Takes Flight three years ago while on a road trip. It spoke to me in so many ways on a deep emotional level. It seemed to affirm my goodness and left me feeling uplifted. I immediately wanted to share the book with several of my friends. I now keep a copy of The Pinwheel Girl Takes Flight in the waiting room at my clinic.” ~ Jan, Owner, Therapeutic Massage & Healing Center
Another reader wrote to me with this testimony: “The Pinwheel Girl Takes Flight empowered me from the very first page. I believe all women were created by God to be great and do great things, but sometimes we get lost in all the responsibility we take upon our shoulders. The Pinwheel Girls showed me that I have the tools within me to take flight and to believe in myself again. To be honest, when I have those moments of doubt, I still take this book out.” ~ Debbie, a working woman and future author, on The Pinwheel Girl Takes Flight.
