Congratulations to columnist and friend Michele Howe on the publication of this great article, "Women inspire prolific author" in the Toledo Blade featuring her work!

Michele has helped so many women by sharing the gift of her writing, and this article captures the essence of her career beautifully.  I was especially inspired by these words of Michele's:

"Someone will ask me, how can you write about it if you’ve never experienced it?" said the author, sitting at the kitchen table in her cozy farmhouse. "And I will say, my friends come alongside me when I’m in difficulty, and their situations are not mine, but they’re helping me. It’s that supportiveness that women offer each other. You don’t have to have the same circumstances. ... Underneath we’re all the same."

Be sure to regularly read Michele's columns here at and to check out her latest book Still Going It Alone: Mothering With Faith and Finesse When the Children Have Grown which is packed with inspiration!
