Winner of “What a Woman Is Worth” Book Giveaway Announced!
My oldest two daughters and I loved reading each woman’s inspiring example of “what you or someone you admire is doing to improve the lives of women around the world” and it was so hard to pick just one winner for the giveaway! Everyone who entered shared a wonderful example of everyday ways to make a difference—if you missed the original post, check out the comments and be inspired!
We thought that Sheena’s story, submitted by Veronica, could have come straight from the pages of “What a Woman Is Worth”:
My wife Sheena was raised by a neglectful mother, and was addicted to drugs by the age of 11. She was in and out of trouble through her teen years. When she was 17, she got pregnant. At that tender age, she knew she wanted a better life for her baby, so she quit drugs and enrolled in college. When she wasn’t working or studying for school, Sheena was reading parenting books. She was hell bent on being the best mother she could be without ever having a good example. She worked multiple jobs while pregnant, and graduated college with a brand new baby girl. She did all of this on her own.
I met her and fell in love with her; who wouldn’t? I was the luckiest woman in the world because she fell in love with me too. We have been a family for 5 years this week.
Sheena has built up a successful business and is the sole provider for our family. She is an incredible woman and most of all, Sheena is the best example to our ten year old daughter. To me, she is the perfect example of what a woman is worth.
Congratulations, Veronica! I’ll be sending you an email today, and we’ll get a signed copy of “What a Woman Is Worth” to you and your incredible lady!
