Women Empowering Women with Alexandria Author, Jodi Hills!
Women Empowering Women w/ Alexandria Author, Jodi Hills!
There are no rules to say that we have to enjoy our lives. No regulations that say we have to accomplish our goals. No patrols to say that we have to act like it matters, that it all matters. But then there’s the heart. The heart that says, “But I have to . . . I have to be . . .” astonish encourages us to take the ordinary and make it extraordinary—to take this life and make it astonishing. astonish includes a bonus workbook to help inspire daily practices for an astonishing life. The activities provide a gentle push to help stir our senses, to open our minds to the possibilities within, and to unleash those unique gifts that make each one of us authentic, original . . . astonishing. Jodi Hills is an author and artist, originally from Alexandria, Minnesota (Jefferson High School ’81) now living, loving, and creating in the south of France. In her multiple books and paintings, she offers her heart, soul, and life experience. Exclusive event! Registration deadline: Wed. Sept. 18th.

Alexandria Public Schools Dedication
To all the teachers of Washington Elementary, Central Junior High, and Jefferson Senior High. My mother worked in the superintendent’s office throughout my schooling years. At home in the evenings, she would still answer our phone, “District 206.” The imprint was strong. The imprint remains. Mrs. Bergstrom taught me how to spell. Mr. Iverson taught me how to write a poem. Mrs. Anderson gave me a locker and a safe place to call mine. I can’t name them all, I would need another book. As sure as I still hear my mother’s voice, I hear the place that most likely saved us both — Alexandria Public Schools.
