Top Five on Friday: January 3

Happy new year! We hope that your 2014 has gotten off to a great start. We know many of you are making resolutions, so we thought we’d put together some great articles and blog posts with advice and inspiration for women and their families this new year.

Need some help sticking with your resolution? Here’s a great tip: don’t take it too seriously. Let your resolution inspire you and help you take a moment to reflect. Then, in a few months, look at it again and see if you’re still on a positive track. There are also some great mobile apps to keep you focused, like Lift, DailyCost and MyFitnessPal. Good luck!

Top Five on Friday – August 16

Earlier this week, one of our local associations in New Hampshire faced a scary and tragic situation during a visitation at their center. We are deeply saddened by the tragic loss of life that occurred at the YWCA New Hampshire, and our thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends of all those involved in this incident. (Read the YWCA USA’s full statement.)

This has been a week of coming together and of healing for the YWCA, so our theme for our Top Five today is inspiration: stories that help us continue serving the YWCA’s mission to eliminate racism and empower women, and that we hope will inspire you.
