Fall Board

This past weekend was the GFWC Florida's annual Fall Board. The weekend was filled with informational workshops, enjoying time with friends and inspirational speeches. I felt like the speeches this time were so much "deeper" and more entertaining than they had been in the past ~ Leah Turner and Jennifer Lee from Creating Your Masterpiece were great! However the speech given by GFWC Director of Junior Clubs Missi McCoy left me with the best quote of the weekend . . .

“If the first woman God ever made was strong enough to turn the world upside down all alone, these together ought to be able to turn it back and get it right side up again”
~As originally stated by Sojourner Truth at a Women's Convention in Akron, Ohio 1851
What I love most about this quote is that it is as true today as it was over 150 years ago. Let's get together ladies and make a difference!
