I would like to introduce you to the Organic Girl blog. Organic Girl is a mother of four children and she loves to blog all things baby/child organic including (but not limited to) the use of cloth diapers. A mom of many talents, Organic Girl owns two other blogs as well: The Bakers Kitchen and Today's Diva which also review and sponsor giveaways of some pretty awesome products. This Canadian blogger dedicates her blogs solely to presenting product reviews and giveaways. There are tons of organic product links for women/moms and babies. Products giveaways can be open to residents in the US and Canada so you should check out the various links to see which products apply. I, for one appreciate the price of free or extremely discounted and as we all know the use of organically produced materials and products is better for us and the environment. As time goes on, I will be posting more links to sites like these that are either run by moms or will significantly benefit women and their families. Organic Girl is definitely worth a first and second look.

Tweets or her posts on her blog she is always encouraging others to take their lives to the next level. I believe it is that drive in her that makes her the perfect candidate for her one of her current positions as a certified life coach! As we occasionally talk via email or phone, my head spins with all of the ways God is keeping her busy. She is currently preparing for several speaking venues around the country, but the one that is closest to her heart would be that of her own brainchild, the Inspired Sistah Retreat coming up in September which you can read more about here: www.InspiredSistahRetreats.yolasite.com. It is my hope that you will take the time to check out Tangie and the work she is doing on the various places across the web and the country. Click on the links above to see how Tangie is inspiring women to live on top of the world!

As much as I hate to admit it, I don't like change. I'm not talking about the change I find in the bottom of my purse, but the kind of change that is life altering and paradigm shifting in nature. In fact, I've come to the conclusion that most of us if not all of us REALLY don't like change. We want things to be stable and have some sense of predictability. We want if not need to maintain a sense of normalcy in our daily lives and we rarely if ever do much to alter that. Most of the changes that occur in our lives have to do with outside influences that are out of our control: death, sickness in yourself or a loved one, accidents, someone else making decisions that affect us, and so on. . . Well, the time has come for me to make a change in my life that has already begun to alter it. I am Chanisha Rashaan Cochran-Wilson: I am a woman, a wife, a mother, a writer, an artist, and most of all a child of God. I am a royal Princess with the King of Kings for a Father. I have always worn all these hats but have been content to settle in with just wearing the wife and mom hat while ignoring the other hats sitting in the back of the closet. They have been screaming to be taken out of the hat box and into the light. Even the princess hat took a back seat for a while. My life has been the equivalent of wearing a baseball cap or silken nightcap everywhere I go even to formal functions when I have such a dazzling array of awe-inspiring hats to show off for the right occasions. It just doesn't look right! I allowed my fear of not wanting to make waves or not wanting to outshine others to hinder me from being the whole person God has called me to be. So as you can see, my blog has made some changes. There is a new look on my blog. I am changing my focus and taking it off of myself and placing it on the world around me. I am putting my "business" (literally) out in the street as I prepare to finish and publish two books and pursue other business endeavors. Be looking out for my posts on various blogs and ministries as I encounter them. Also feel free to comment and/or click the Follow button on the right of the screen and join me in my new journey. It's always nice to know who's watching and perhaps we can learn a lot from one another. Happy New Week!
