A woman in harmony with her spirit is like a river flowing. She goes where she will without pretense and arrives at her destination prepared to be herself and only herself. Maya Angelou Ladies, here we go. Ready or not, October is here, and November is right around the corner. I am so excited to share our Healing and Harmony issue with our readers. Creating this magazine has given me the gift of getting to know the women of the Chippewa Valley. I am inspired by their character and in awe of these courageous women who are willing to share …
