Do Something Beautiful
Women, All ages
People are good. You might not think that if you listen to traditional news, but that’s a lie. Everyday heroes and saints live among us and my goal is to introduce them to you.We are inspired by the words of Mother Teresa, “Do something beautiful for God. Do it with your life. Do it every day. Do it in your own way. But do it!” Leah Darrow, former model and contestant on America’s Next Top Model, draws on her experience in the beauty industry to expose the lies we are told about our worth being tied to our appearance and instead invites us to look again at the real meaning of beauty in service to mankind.
Welcome to the third of a 3-part series on the unique and yet also universal wounds that we experience as women.
Today, we're talking about Babies. There are a lot of serious conversations to have around motherhood, fertility, and the things we assume are in competition with having babies.
We discuss what babies and dreams do to each other – how they change and expand. We also go about debunking some of the lies and the false fears that surround these conversations by examining the human body and the power of understanding our fertility.
