Welcome to the Soul Sisters Blog!

We’re three sisters on a mission to empower and inspire women everywhere to pursue their passions and achieve their dreams. Our story is probably not unlike your own; a tug at the heartstring, a feeling of wanting more from life, a desire to fulfill a divine purpose. It was these relentless yearnings that inspired the concept of Soulspring Groups.

When our souls open up (and they tend to quite often) we’ve got to share! We invite you to read our thoughts (and occasional rants) on women, empowerment, passion, destiny and life! Feel free to share your comments; we love to hear your thoughts (and rants) too! And, become an official follower! It's always fun to see the company we're keeping!

Women…It’s Time to Stand Up and Be Noticed!

In the time it takes you to read this blog post, how many women will have achieved a goal, built up a strength through adversity, or just made a difference is a simple way? I have to confess I don’t know the answer to that question but it makes one stop and think, doesn’t it?

Our lives are jam packed with incredible ladies who achieve amazing things. I’m not just talking about bold, heroic, self-sacrificing events. Of course those deserve our attention, too. But the rules have changed slightly and these days if you’ve stepped out of your comfort zone, if you’ve stood up for what you believe in, if you’ve faced adversity head-on, if you’ve taken a leap of faith to follow your passion, if you’ve done something that made even a small difference, then you are a woman who accomplished something and deserves to be noticed!

We are coming up to one of our favorite observances in September, “National Women of Achievement Month”. There are a number of women in history who paved the way for what we are lucky enough to experience today…The right we have to cast our ballot, the right we have to run for office, the right to hold a job that we are qualified for, and the list goes on.

But, have you ever stopped to think about how we are paving the way for those who will follow us; our children and grandchildren? Whether we realize it or not they are learning from our example everyday. They see us earn college degrees while working full-time. They see us leave the corporate 9-5 because it goes against everything we believe in and pursue a more meaningful way of life. They see us throw caution to the wind in a quest to follow our passions. They see us get out of damaging and unhealthy relationships. They see us excel in sports of all kinds. They see us learn from our mistakes. They see us take on the big-wigs and stand for what is right. They see us battle illnesses with courage and grace. They see us experience new things, facing the fear and doing it anyway. Yes, women are making a difference in every corner of our world.

At Soulspring we have set aside the month of September to recognize and praise these everyday women who portray courage, strength, determination, and perseverance. They are not only the shining examples of the legacy we are leaving for the next generations, but their stories will also lend the empowered hand to others who may need it, encouraging them to take the next step toward something great.

You know who they are, it may even be you! We invite you to share their stories with us. Simply submit their name, a brief description of their accomplishment, and their website (if applicable) in the comment area below, or visit our nomination post on our Facebook page (and please, “like” us while you’re there!). Throughout the month of September, we’ll be honoring each nominee with a tweet via Twitter, and acknowledging their triumph in the twitter-sphere! What a simple way to show another their hard work has not gone unnoticed! Mother, sister, coworker, friend…no achievement is too big or too small!

So often the contributions of the everyday women are overlooked or taken for granted by society; giving the message that as women our accomplishments are not important. Not this time ladies! Nominate your Woman of Achievement today!

Soul-spiration of the Week:
“You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand.” ~W. Wilson
