Hi, I'm Becky Norwood. Welcome to "The Woman I Love!" As an author, publisher, and business owner, I have not only told my own story of survival from childhood sexual, emotional and physical abuse, I also help others tell their stories as well. We do not owe our past a place in our future, and the key to finding our joy comes from loving and forgiving ourselves. Do you have a story to tell? Let me help you accomplish it!
Are You Ready to Tell Your Story?
Each and every day we meet women who are just beginning to get their feet under them and deciding that in order for them to be the best they can be for themselves and their families, they must find a way to heal and thrive.
That is how this website started. I was one of them. I found that being able to stand up and tell my story was one of the greatest things I have ever done for myself. Elsewhere on this site you will read of my journey.
Since then, my life has improved immensely and I work with women everyday to begin to love and forgive themselves and begin to heal. It is incredible.
Over the past year, I constantly find myself meeting women that are pulling themselves up, but at this point money is always the issue. We find that the shelters and other resources do amazing things in helping these women to find their way and get reestablished in life. But often, they need more, and more often than not getting that support, the sisterhood, the coaching and mentoring is out of reach.
Because of that we started Women UP International. This is a not-for-profit organization that is solely here to attract the funding to give women this kind of support.
Our first project is a crowdfunding program that is innovative and profitable. It allows donations. It also allows those not able to donate to set up a free account and still benefit our cause.
This particular project allows women to tell their story in our Anthology book call "We Choose to Thrive: Our Voices Rising in Unison to Share With Abuse Survivors a Message of Hope and Inspiration for Healing." We are currently working on our second book in this series. With our first book, we witnessed amazing strides participants made by feeling the love, support, and sisterhood they needed. They also gained courage by being able to share their stories in a safe environment.
