I entered the program because I needed to take a moment to get a sense of what I wanted in life and I needed to reconnect with who I was. Prior to entering the program, I lost my sense of self and needed help to get me back on track to the woman that deep down inside I knew was there. I also went into the program needing help to identify time wasters in my life, gain focus and guidance on strategizing the next steps in my life and to gain the self confidence I felt I "once" had. Upon completion of the Leadership & Life Coaching Program, I got that and much more. I left a different woman than the one that entered the program. I have gained tools that have helped in every facet of my life. I recommend this program and organization to anyone.

This organization was a one of the main catalyst to me starting my own business. It helped me connect the dots and make sense of the scattered pieces of life. MSK helped steer me in the appropriate direction to bring all my experiences and passion together to help live a more productive and fruitful life. Though the organization taught me about self awareness, it also connected me with women that have become very influential in my life both personally and professionally. It has been a joy to stay connected to the women in my focus group and to see how their lives have blossomed from the time we originally met. Lastly, MSK has reinforced the idea of giving back in my life. It helped to remember the larger picture of life, not just my small world. MSK definitely assisted me in moving from average to excellent; in my thinking, my living and my giving. Anyone that connects themselves to this organization will be impacted.

Being involved in My Sister’s Keeper has been a very eye-opening journey for me. Being a part of this group and its use of the Life Forming Leadership Coaching model has caused me to become a more introspective person. Being more pensive, I gained the courage to give life, words and actions to dreams and goals that would have remained underdeveloped, for the rest of my life. MSK provides the necessary space for women to engage in self discovery and to build powerful, authentic relationships with other women who dare to pursue their life purpose and unrealized dreams!

Since its inception, My Sister's Keeper Foundation for Women has been changing the community and the world one woman at a time. I had the privilege of participating in the 2008 Leadership & Life Coaching Program and my life was transformed. The program empowered me to process my past and to move forward into my future with purpose. Life is full of twists and turns, I learned nuggets during the program that I draw upon daily in this journey of life. The program also connected me to authentic women with whom I expect to have lifelong friendships. The community programs, workshops and seminars are always top notch. Any woman looking for a life-affirming and thought provoking experience should consider joining forces with MSK through one of its community programs, or the Leadership and Life Coaching Program.

The MSK Leadership/Coaching program came at a very pivotal time in my life. I was able to dig in deep in order to survive and gain momentum through the recent passing of my mother. I began to dream again, live again and most of all, give birth to my passion as I now live on PURPOSE!

Our company, Leapin Lizards, is an inflatable facility that mainly caters to families with children that want to play indoors or host a birthday party. We provided MSK with the opportunity to host their first meet and greet in one of our party spaces. MSK's leadership team was extremely pleasant to work with and very well organized. They arrived early to the facility to setup and converted the "party room" into a welcoming space for the women they were serving. They finished on-time and afterwards provided our staff and clients with the remaining catered food. From my personal experience, their leadership embodies the empowerment and excellence MSK is instilling in the women this foundation supports. It was my privilege to provide space to MSK for their meeting and would gladly assist in the future.

The My Sister's Keeper for Women Leadership and Life Coaching Program is a great journey for any woman desiring a transformation in her life. This program is designed to unearth that which is already in each individual. It has been wonderful to see women go through the history of their lives, put the pieces together, and the moment the "light-bulb" comes on. There is a marked change in the women when they complete this program.

My experience with MSK is one of that as a donor and honoree. I am proud of the work MSK does in the community to advance the cause of women through several facets. Particularly, the work they do with the Single Mother's Assistance Program. Most recently, I attended a Mother's Day Luncheon at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. This was the second year MSK sponsored dinner for the families of sick children in the intensive care units at CHOA. As a parent of a child who frequented CHOA, it is difficult to concentrate on making holidays special for our families. The genorisity and compassion demonstrated by MSK at this event is appreciated.

I have witnessed the incredible impact My Sister's Keeper Foundation has on women who have been through the Leadership and Life Coaching Program. They expressed a greater sense of purpose, direction, self-confidence and determination to succeed. I was also incredibly impressed with the Single Mother's Assistance program. This organization has a commitment to providing support to single mothers through programing, seminars, tuition and academic assistance for their children. I will continue to be a donor to MSK because of it's dedication to enhance and empower women at a point in their lives when they need it the most.

I am particularly proud to be a part of an organization that manages its finances and other responsibilities with the utmost integrity and accountability. In a day and age where so many corporations are lacking in fiscal responsibility and ethics, My Sister's Keeper Foundation for Women, Inc. (MSK) serves as a shining example! I am always excited to hear the stories from a vast number of women that have been equipped and empowered in their educational pursuits, professional growth and personal development through participation in MSK programs.

The MSK foundation is a community advocate for women. The primary goal is to empower women by retooling, teaching, coaching and funding to become reconnected to the community by redeveloping self worth. What a tremendous impact this foundation will have on the community and ultimately the world. Since my participation in the services provided by MSK, I have become a financial partner in the goals of MSK to strengthen and empower women. I have become my sisters keeper!

As a consultant I have the opportunity to work with many different organizations. From the very beginning My Sister's Keeper Foundation has demonstrated the enthusiasm, commitment and resourcefulness necessary to turn a vision into reality. As the organization has moved rapidly to turn the vision/dreams of real women into tangible realities. Moving women from "average to excellence" shows in their design as an organization, the programs they run, the women they support as well as their volunteers, board and leader, Dr. Toni. It's an organization that has a vision and evidence of greatness. We can only to expect to see more greatness from such a motivated, comitted group.
