I have a good life. I have a husband who loves me, awesome and healthy kids, we’re not entirely broke, we’re mostly doing okay. Why? Because we worked really hard for it? Because I earned these beautiful things in my life? Because I’m better than those with less?
It’s a hard concept to think through. Why was I born in America with privileges and opportunities and other women weren’t? Why do I get the freedom to do what I want and be what I want when other women do not? Why me?
I don’t know and I really can’t answer those questions but I do know that being here in my ‘comfortable’ life I have two choices. I can just sit here and be comfortable or I can choose look outside myself and try to speak for the women with no voice.
That is why today I am incredibly honored to be partnering with Sister India. They are working hard to help provide education for women in India. Please read on and watch the video. It’s well worth your time.
Have you ever felt invisible?
Maybe you’re the alarm-snoozer like me, rushing out of the house in a bland, rumpled ensemble and a bumpy ponytail. Or maybe you’ve been stuck at home cleaning up after the kids for too many days in a row. Whatever it was, chances are you’ve felt invisible at least once. And it’s no fun.

- Give her an education for only $30. At Sister India, we are combating the abuse of women and girls by giving them the gift of education— a gift withheld from over 300 million Indians, who can’t read or write, even their own names. Educating a woman in reading, writing, math, health, business and Bible values only costs $30 because we work with an organization that raises up Indian Christian volunteers. $30 to transform a family for generations! Craziness. Right now all donations are being matched by an investor, so if you give $30, you’re giving education to 2 illiterate Indians! Click here.
- Create a Fundraising Page this week to spread awareness and give your friends a chance to help too. Because there’s a donation match on right now, just $150 will give education to 10 people! If 10 friends give $15 you will change 10 families, preventing generations of violence! Click here.
