She wants all to know that it is actually the beginning of something new. Just as woman had to adjust to changes in their bodies from childhood to their blossoming teens and into the childbearing years, woman can embrace this next phase of life.

In a simple, fun format, with reference to God and full color illustrations, her book depicts the reality (hot flashes) that most women at this life stage experience on a regular basis. Readers will appreciate her honest, friend-to-friend advice that helps women be neither afraid nor embarrassed when dealing with menopause. The author stresses that no one can control aging, but one can be at peace with it, remembering that along with life’s experiences comes maturity and wisdom.

“My readers will release a sigh of relief, knowing that they’re not losing it or crazy and that there are real reasons they feel the way they do,” states the author. “Through humor and honesty, this book will remind them that they are not alone. Menopause is not easy, BUT it’s okay! Here comes our second wind.”

Monique Garland Foster was born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She is a devoted wife, mother and grandma and a fourteen-year veteran of the City of Milwaukee Police Department. She experienced menopause quite early in life, before she was prepared for it. She feels that God wants her to turn her struggle and confusion into a blessing through which she could help others. Through a dream, her Heavenly Father – to whom she gives all the praise and honor – gave her the idea of sharing her experience of sorting through and coming to terms with this thing called, “menopause.”
