We envision a world where women through wisdom Aspire, Excel, Inspire, Outreach, and Unite in the collective efforts of all women to reach their fullest potential.






Our Story

“Women Inspired and Spiritually Empowered” started as a gripping and stimulating theme that was used at a conference for women. When that conference was over, it didn’t seem right to let it end there! Such a powerful statement was meant to be shared and used as a base upon which more should come. Thus, W.I.S.E. was developed to continue making a positive impact, and sharing valuable information, reliable resources, and encouraging good deeds among women across the globe.

Mission

Establish a support network of quality service providers and organizations, promoting the personal growth, self-development, and achievement of women; and the advancement of causes inherently valuable to women. We aim to encourage and engage women in creating a positive impact on the larger community and, ultimately, the entire human family. We are "Women Inspired and Spiritually Empowered", pursuing pathways to optimal living.

Your Life. Your Body. Your Choices.



October’s orange cannot over shadow the need to bring awareness and support for two causes that are so important to women: Breast Cancer and Domestic Violence Awareness & Prevention. About 1 in 8 U.S. women (about 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime (BreastCancer.org). The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV) reports that “In America, one woman is fatally shot by a spouse, ex-spouse or dating partner every 14 hours”.

Every day we make decisions that influence our health and well being. For those who have been diagnosed with breast cancer, the decision-making process is often difficult at best, and for those who suffer through domestic violence, decisions have to be made for safety and wellbeing. The fact is that both breast cancer and domestic violence are women’s health issues and they are also public health issues. Because it’s your life, your body and your choices, we’re providing some useful information aimed at making your decision-making process easier.

Domestic Violence Awareness & Prevention

The impact of domestic violence affects everyone from victims to survivors to supporters of awareness and prevention. The Center for Women and Families is stepping up to double awareness. This year you’re encouraged to wear a little purple with your pink. When you’re in an unhealthy, violent relationship at home, the choices you may have to make can be extremely difficult. From the Huffington Post the following article gleans what happens, “When Women Must Choose between Abuse and Homelessness” and the following link provides some invaluable information, Engaging Families in Domestic Violence Services. For more information about domestic violence resources to help in the decision-making process “to get help” contact The National Domestic Violence Hotline (celebrating its 20th year) which provides 24-7 Confidential Support: 1-800-799-7233.

Breast Health and Breast Cancer Awareness

Breast Health is also part of breast cancer prevention. Understanding what you can do at various stages in your life to enhance breast health is also important in the choices you make throughout your life. The article, “Keeping your breasts healthy at every age” by Hallie Levine Sklar provides steps you can take towards breast health.

The fear and the scare of breast cancer can affect a woman’s decision-making abilities. Education about the top issues surrounding prevention, diagnosis and management can help to ease some concerns. Breast Screening Decisions is a website for women ages 40-49. It is designed to give you unbiased information that can help you and your doctor decides when you should start and how often you should have screening mammograms. Consumer Reports’ article “Breast health: Your questions answered. Don't let doctors rush you. A deliberate approach to prevention and treatment is best”, answers several questions around prevention, screening, and treatment.

Breast reconstruction is also another difficult personal decision. The links that follow offer decision-making aides and perspectives on determining how your reconstructive surgery should progress. There are reconstruction challenges to face, but there are also surgical options available for you to choose.

For moms who are always on the go, keeping it together means that your balancing act is often centered about your family’s activities. Access this article by Lisa Druxman, “10 Tips for Balancing Work and Motherhood”
