Brrr…here comes winter. It’s a busy time for all of us particularly this year, with the holidays so early and the pandemic still around. Who has the extra time to take part in Sisterhood?  You do!  And here’s why:

To call another woman a sister is to say, “I trust you,” “I have your back,” “your feelings are valid” and “I believe in you.” One of the greatest benefits of sisterhood is the ability to share your thoughts and feelings – to be your honest, authentic self. In sisterhood we find each other to connect and to share resources. When women empower one another, the entire community is empowered. Our sisterhood is our tribe, and each of us is gifted with something unique, our own arsenal of knowledge, skills, and “weapons” to assist us in our mission. The women of the sisterhood are intergenerational and diverse in what we do, how we think, and who we are. We groom each other (and our daughters) to become empowered “superwomen.”  – From “5 Reasons Why Sisterhood is Important” (Angela D. Coleman)

You have gifts you can share, as we all do.  Who can’t use an extra gift?  Please become a part of the tribe.

BHSS Sisterhood has been busy with projects and programs, including our recent Tea to support the Center for Hope and Safety on September 26. We learned from Elizabeth Campbell, the director, about what the Center (formerly Shelter our Sisters) does, and how we can continue to help them support women in our communities. November brings the return of the famous Sisterhood Kindness Chain.

All of us at Sisterhood wish you the happiest of holidays – and we all pray for a healthier 2022! Your Sisterhood will be here…join us!
