Review for Cultivating Our Sisterhood International Association, Inc., West Hempstead, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I became a member of COSIA several years ago after receiving an invitation from the founder. COSIA is a powerfully encouraging support network, where the leaders teach by example, point members in the right direction, and courage them to reach their potential. Since joining COSIA, I have published a novel, launched an LLC, and have begun to be recognized with awards. I count my blessings and credit this success largely to advice and encouragement that I have received from COSIA's founder and members throughout the years.

Review for Cultivating Our Sisterhood International Association, Inc., West Hempstead, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I joined COSIA as a housewife who was working part-time and had dreams of writing a book. Lois Reddick connected with me and invited me into a support network of women with impressive credentials and even more amazing spirits. The women of COSIA encourage and empower each other. We band together and help each other prosper. Since joining, I have contributed to their newsletter, became editor-in-chief, and then director of publications. Since then, I have completed my novel and landed an agent. I am seeing my goals and dreams take shape and actualize, as a result of being influenced by COSIA members and COSIA's commitment to excellence. One plants, one waters, but God gives the increase. And for me, COSIA has truly been a blessing.
