Greetings, Illuminating Women Sisters.
 
I hope your 2021 is starting out on an upward swing and that this year brings you joy, peace, love, and good health.
 
This pandemic has made a huge impact in everyone's life. My heart and prayers go out to those of you who have lost loved ones and for those who caught the virus and are experiencing "long haul" side effects. All of us have had to make significant changes to adapt in keeping our fellow humans safe and this includes the operations of Illuminating Women which will see some huge changes.
 
I first want to thank you for filling out our survey. This has helped me to understand how best to run Illuminating Women in 2021. I value your feedback, which helped validate my resolve to keep Illuminating Women operating as a women's educational and empowerment group and not a women's business networking organization.
 
Due to the fact that we are unable to meet in person and the stated lack of interest in more virtual events, I have changed Illuminating Women to no longer operating in the membership model. The website remains up, however, there will not be any additions and/or updates until further notice.
 
I will be hosting our Girlfriend's Night Out on the 3rd Friday of the month, 7 pm-9 pm. We will have break out rooms for 1:1 connecting, some fun activities, and, of course, inspiring and educational presentations. You can find details of the events on the Illuminating Women, LLC, page and in our monthly newsletter. You can also reach out to me or Sharon for information.
 
If you wish to be a sponsor for GNO or want to have advertising space in our newsletter, please reach out to me at
info@illuminatingwomen.com for more details.
 
I miss all of you and I do hope you can join us for GNO to catch up, connect, laugh, and engage with each other.
 
Many blessings,
Jill

Resiliency in Uncertain Times

Join us to learn from Karen Rae, founder, and owner of Fave Lifestyles, her own personal story to inspire and encourage us about having resiliency in uncertain times.
5 Major Life Changes over a two-year period and then let’s throw a pandemic on top of it.
How to Navigate
The Mindset
Are you going to let your challenges or situations define you? I did not allow myself to identify as a divorced woman…... These are things in which I was walking through, learning from, connecting with new people.

Let Go of the Fears - First I had to identify what they were, Living alone for the first time, handling my finances, taking responsibility for myself, starting a business…

Karen started Fave while she herself was facing a number of life transitions. Faced with these changes she realized there was a need for resources and community for women to help them thrive and create a life they love.

Fave is a lifestyle brand and community which amplifies the Expertise of women in business to the community seeking their resources. They are a community of women of strength, making an impact in their world through their passions, families, faith, and businesses. Fave is a place for women to Shine and Do Life Together!
