Who runs the world?

That’s a great question! According to Beyoncé, girls run the world, but I think that the case can be made for women in general. And in May, we are focusing on the women that are changing the world in a variety of ways.

Check out our feature on the women that are leading their communities–Mayors Jean Moore, Nan Johnston, and Kathy Rose. Each of them came to public service in a very different way but all have left an indelible mark upon their community. And what’s more, they are shining examples that a woman’s place is wherever she can make the most impact.

Take a peek inside Jane Bromberg’s studio. She’s parlayed a love of design into a career as a dressmaker, seamstress, and quilter. Her ability to work from home meant that she could raise her family on her own terms, while also contributing to the family finances. Now that the kids are grown, she’s bloomed into an artist in her own right and is showing local lovers of the arts what a needle and thread can do.

And finally, see how the first six months of motherhood has changed me in our Parting Thoughts. It’s been a wonderful journey and I’m excited to continue it.

As Mother’s Day approaches, let’s acknowledge and thank the women in our lives that pour out their love to all those around them. We would be nowhere without them!

Happy Mother’s Day!

Correction: In March, we incorrectly identified Ann Moyer as Ann Moyers in our story about Endurance House. We also mistakenly listed their address. They are located at 8940 NW Skyview Avenue. We regret the error.
