August 2023 Newsletter + Track Meetings for GGN Members
We’re havin’ a heat wave!
And we’re all trying our best to cope with it!!!!
Here are some things that are helping me:
- I do my best to ONLY go out in the mornings
- I walk Costco and Whole Foods instead of trying to exercise outside (you can actually get in 2 to 3 miles in Costco if you keep going around ALL the aisles and do some repeating)
- I wear very simple dresses and have given up my bras for the summer
- I keep my house at 78 to 79 degrees during the day and use my ceiling fans to circulate air
- I do my best to avoid drama
- I cook maybe once a week and try to eat a lot more salads, lettuce wraps and easy foods the rest of the time (not over-eating helps me stay cool)
- I drink at least a third more water than usual to stay hydrated
- I don’t get into a lot of conversations about how hot it is—we already know!
- I spend free time reading something that truly engages me
- If I do go to a restaurant, I carry a jacket to deal with how cold it is inside
- I keep remembering the summer of 1980 when we had a similar heat wave and we all got through it!
Hope you find ways to stay cool!!!
GGN Member Jane Baldwin shares
her new series of masterclasses
I’ve combined a “best-of” from a season of coaching clients to create this profound series of classes that takes you step-by-step into finding your calm rhythm and then knowing how to get back there on your own.
Unwind Your Mind Embodied Masterclass is FREE. Sign up now and you will get a link to participate in the three live events in August, plus, you will receive the recordings after each class in your inbox. Each class will focus on either meditation, sensory yoga, Breathwork, or a combination of these practices.

GGN Member Kathleen Covens shares her new book!
1, 2, 3 with Mrs. C
With 25 years as an educator, Kathleen Covens, known as “Mrs. C,” formerly Teacher of the Year, is well-regarded for establishing strategies and techniques uniquely designed for interacting with children. In 1, 2, 3 with Mrs. C, she shares her expertise in an engaging style that delivers tools for adults to interact with children in a personalized manner. “Mrs. C” also shares her prior struggles as a young teacher and later mother of two children, one who became severely impaired at age 13 months.
1, 2, 3 with Mrs. C is for parents, educators, and other adults who choose to have a positive influence on children. From putting magic in daily activities, to savoring moments, setting goals, dealing with technology, and recognizing each child for their individuality, 1, 2, 3 with Mrs. C shares sustainable techniques and offers novel ways to impact children on a daily and long-term basis. “Mrs. C” coins a new word, “Momenteur” – someone who creates an awareness of moments.
AN INSPIRATIONAL NEW BOOK FOR THOSE WHO DARE TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIFE OF A CHILD
1, 2, 3, with Mrs. C is available at Amazon and select bookstores.
We still ask for $5 to cover costs. And yes, you can register at the last minute…. but it would be GREAT if you let us know a couple of days before so we can plan our refreshments!!!
Our Track meetings are designed to give us a sacred space to have meaningful, purposeful conversations without fear of being judged or competed with. Only Members can attend. They are amazing experiences, unlike any ‘networking meeting’ you have ever attended!
GGN members MUST REGISTER to attend these meetings, so just follow the links below! And if you want to learn about us, go ahead and join GGN~~if you decide it isn’t for you, we will refund your membership fee!
Currently we meet the 2nd Monday morning and 3rd Wednesday evening of each month (see below).
Each one is an event or happening in itself. Some members come frequently, some come only once in a while. Whenever you attend one, you will find out things you didn’t know, connect with women who will challenge and inspire you, and you will leave with some new perspectives.

Become a Member!
Great Girls Network is our way of being the opposite of the Good Ol’ Boys Network (which is still very much alive and well!). Even if you don’t participate in Track meetings, your membership gives you a way to support our existence and be a part of a growing group of women who really appreciate each other. And the Trii-Annual Gatherings are unlike any other “networking” event! We know women don’t network like men. We want to build relationships, we want deeper, more meaningful connections. That is exactly what GGN provides.
Our membership fee of $50 per year gives you access to our Track Meetings and also contributions to our Newsletter. The fee helps sustain our website, but it also ensures that when you participate in a Track meeting, you will honor the sacredness of the conversations because you are a member.
We created a digital card that helps people understand what they can get from joining GGN so click here to see the card.
Your membership helps give us that foundation, the strength to grow and have an impact on the lives of so many more women.
Great Girls Are Amazing Women!!! Thank You!!!
