Frida Kahlo: A Lesson in Perspective

Frida Kahlo: A Lesson in Perspective

How often do you look in the mirror? Is it a quick look to check your hair or to see if something is in your teeth, or are you truly looking at yourself - who you are? 


Each year we have the opportunity to make resolutions; we hope to become better versions of ourselves physically, emotionally, and spiritually. But do we take time regularly for self-reflection outside of the beginning of a year? 


This week’s #wowwomanwednesday is a great example of constant self-reflection and seeing things for more than they appear to be.


Frida Kahlo was a famous Mexican artist who frequently painted self-portraits. Her work is honest and passionate. Despite a life of health challenges, she found a way to express herself through art that still resonates with people around the world. 


Head on over to the blog to learn more about Frida and try a fun activity to experience self-expression and evaluation. We also have discussion questions to go along with the activity to talk with your kids about the importance of self-reflection and awareness of our surroundings.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Ruth Bader Ginsburg

"Young women today have a great advantage, and it is that there are no more closed doors. That was basically what the '70s was all about. Opening doors that had been closed to women." #wowwomanwednesday

Today’s world has so many opportunities for women, and many of those opportunities were made possible by Ruth Bader Ginsburg.  

Political views aside, it’s hard to deny the path that RBG paved for women to have a seat at the table. Throughout her life she broke down gender norms and expectations, and it all began with her mother’s view on education. 

In this post, you’ll learn more about Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s life and accomplishments, as well as an activity and some discussion questions about the importance of education, goal-setting, and chasing your dreams. 

What doors have been opened for you?
