  • Comments Off on Hot off the Press: Dr. Olivia Hooker story written as children’s book

Our S-HERO is 101 year old Dr. Olivia J Hooker. She is a light that has touched many with her accomplishments and the work she has done as a child Psychologist. More inspiring is her life story, she is living history.  That’s why we are so excited that her story has been made into a children’s book. We thank author Shameen Anthanio-Williams for this wonderful work! 


Tulsa Girl
After witnessing the events of the historic Tulsa Massacre of 1921, Olivia’s love for school was quickly buried in the ashes of her destroyed town and what remained in her heart was fear. Will Olivia overcome her fear and return to school? This story is written to inspire children to rise above their circumstances no matter how difficult…to shine on regardless.

  • Comments Off on Crowing a Queen: Mother Teresa #Sainthood

at sassysagesays we often highlight girls/young women who are doing amazing things. this time we are honoring my favorite celebrity of all time, mother teresa of calcutta, peacemaker and advocate for the poor.

you know that question they sometimes use on college essay applications about who alive or dead you would have dinner with?  my answer is always mother teresa. i can barely contain myself i’m soo excited that she is going to become a saint!  

the reasons that she more than deserves this honor are countless.  but what i want to highlight is how she chose to follow her heart in dedicating her career to what she was passionate about.   the chances were slim that she would make a difference in the lives of the poor she reached out to. she had no money and at the time very little support for her work. but she kept going. little by little the word spread of this tiny lady who was helping children.  it took years but her strength and determination turned into world wide admiration and followers of her commitment to serve.

as we celebrate labor day, consider if you are walking your path of passion. regardless of your religious affiliation you can look to mother (saint) teresa as a role model to never let your current circumstance determine your goals. take a small step towards your dreams; sainthood could be in your destiny.
