Lagrange, NY (PRWEB) February 28, 2008
To celebrate Women’s History Month this March, Sheryl Entwistle, owner and CEO of the biographical art company Living Celebrations, urges Americans to honor the special women in their lives.
“Women’s History Month is not just a time to reflect on the accomplishments of women in history past,” Mrs. Entwistle says. “It’s also time to celebrate modern women.” The businesswoman says it is the real stories of women living today, both the famous and the not-so-famous, that will mean the most to the younger generation and be ones they’ll learn from.
Mrs. Entwistle provides five ways women can find fresh meaning in this annual observance and pass on their heritage to the next generation:
1. Pay it forward. Honor the women of history who paved the way by passing on the torch to the next generation. Make a record of your personal history: the life you’ve lived, the good and bad choices you’ve made, the lessons you’ve learned, and what you would do over again if you had the chance.
2. Be a mentor. The actions of a female role model today speak louder to girls than words on the page of a history book. Get involved in the Big Sister program, take your daughter to work, lead a Girl Scout troop, or offer to talk about your career in the classroom at a local school.
3. Walk the talk. The women of history were women of action. Join their ranks by becoming one of them. Get involved in an organization that champions women’s causes.
4. Support the arts. Visit an art museum in the area that highlights the work of female artists, attend a concert featuring a local female musician or vocalist, or attend a reading by a woman author at your neighborhood library.
5. Promote other women. Applaud and talk about other women’s accomplishments as if they were your own. “Words of affirmation are powerful,” Mrs. Entwistle says, “because they truly have the ability to lift up, empower, and forever change a woman.”
Mrs. Entwistle says there are ways for men to get involved too. “Be a daily encouragement to the woman in your life,” says Mrs. Entwistle. “If you actively support her endeavors and help celebrate her successes, you are not only promoting that woman, but also any young girl who looks up to her as a role model.”
When it comes to helping people celebrate their lives and make their mark in history, Sheryl Entwistle is something of an expert. She is owner and CEO of Living Celebrations, a company that turns personal histories into custom-made biographical works of art called Masterpieces. A Masterpiece is a unique and unusual gift idea for anyone who is celebrating a milestone birthday, anniversary, retirement, or other special occasion that deserves extraordinary recognition.
Biographical Masterpieces are only available from Living Celebrations. The company’s website, http://www.livingcelebrations.com, offers visitors the opportunity to view a gallery of Masterpieces as well as meet the company’s team of award-winning artists.
