How did you find BBWO?
My name is Kara Norman and I am a mother of two girls, ages 10 and 5. I've been married for 11 years to my wonderful husband. We live in the Atlanta area. I have longed to live a more fulfilling life in which I was able to work with women and girls. Being a part of this site is helping to make one of those a reality. I serve as a moderator for a new teen social network called EMGirls for teens ages 12-18. I also recently I partnered with a friend of mine and we are launching an empowerment group for pre-teen.

EMGirls ~New Online Teen Girl Empowerment Social Network!
If you are like me your are addicted to your social networks online, such an amazing way to connect, network and be a part of something amazing! With this in mind if you know of any teen girls ages 13-18 who are in love with myspace or facebook, please send them my information and have them join EMGirls and new EMpowering group for girls!
Join me as we seek to create a new generation of girls to lead our future! What do EMwomen and EMgirls have in common? They are both dedicated to raising up future leaders who use their lives to make a difference in the world. Whether you are mom, checking out the group, or a young woman looking to connect with other girls with a passion to change the world, EMgirls is all about providing a positive place of connection, interaction, creativity, education, community service, and fun for teen and pre-teen girls that promotes a higher standard of living, purity, and excellence. Will you help us "RE-Invent BEAUTIFUL" by partnering with us to invite your friends and help us create a network of girls that don't set their top priority on "looking beautiful", but instead, set their aim on "living beautiful". Together, we can reinvent the way girls and women think about themselves, and the way we look at others.
Interesting video about how the media influences our girls:
OUR MISSION:To EMpower Girls to recognize and fulfill their unique potential by instilling leadership skills, fostering critical thinking, supporting their individual potential, helping them overcome limiting behaviors, and by re-inventing "beautiful" as a word that describes the inner beauty of a girl as seen in her service and love for others.We believe that every girl has the potential to change the world, and EMgirls can help her do it! We encourage you to invite your friends to the EMgirls group and begin using your "online" time to make friends that make a difference!
