About this title


** New Cover, same content     Our six book series is designed to empower girls to navigate their way through life with confidence, self-esteem, compassion, creativity, collaboration and joy through the thoughtful contemplation and expression of their own unique perspectives, ideals and experiences.       Each book is excellent as a journal for one girl or as a tool in a group setting for writing and discussion.  Topics are particularly relevant today, such as, "Cookie Cutter." Journal entries do not talk down or issue simple edicts, but respect the intelligence and individuality of every girl.     Society's definition of beauty is a myth.  Use the notes space in this book to explore, identify and discover your own personal brand of beauty.   Cookie Cutter
They call them cookie cutter houses
Each looks the same as every other one
Like cookies cut from a mold
They are so similar
That it's difficult to tell them apart
The message seems to be
That each should appear
Exactly as the others
As though conformity
Equates to quality
But I am not
A cookie cutter girl
Who designs herself
To be like everybody else
I want to be like one of those houses
On an interesting street
That draws your attention
Because it is different in a way
That intrigues you
And makes you wish
You could take a peek inside
I don't want to build a house
That is so like the rest
That I can't even tell which is mine
I want to build something
Different than the rest
Because I am not
A cookie cutter girl

From the Author:

What is a Journal Affirmation?     Affirmations are often used and given as tools to focus on important concepts of self-esteem, growth and achievement.  These simple few-word phrases are designed to motivate us as we repeat them with focus.  There's no doubt the exercise of focusing on simple, profound concepts can be helpful.  But in my own life, I often felt as though these lovely words often set me up for failure.  We can repeat such phrases as, "I am beautiful," all day long, but what does that really mean?  How do I go from repeating the phrase to actually feeling it as a reality of my experience? I wondered what I was missing, why I wasn't reaping all the rewards of using affirmations to improve my life.     It also occurred to me that if I was struggling with this, others might be as well, especially young people.  What it must be like as society advises, "If you just love yourself, everything will fall into place."  Without the tools to help them come to their own realizations, we unknowingly set them up for failure.  And if we as adults can't master this ourselves, why do we expect it from them?       The missing piece of the puzzle seemed so intuitive.  Since every path is an individual path, there is not a one-size-fits-all solution.  There is no single perfect answer.  The way to extract the meaning from an affirmation is to personalize it, examine it, feel it, write about it, fire those brain synapses and experience it as tangibly as possible from as many angles as possible.  "Journal Affirmations," devote an entire book to the exploration of a single affirmation.  Each entry, bit by bit, word by word serves to peel back the layers as we come to our own unique understanding of what the affirmation means in our own lives.  "Journal Affirmations," provide a door to discovery, discussion and sharing exercises that help us to finally receive the gifts offered via affirmations.
