Board Member, Genuine Pearl Girls

 

“Life is the string on which we hang our pearls, and we all have been given pearls. We just have to recognize them through acts of kindness.”

 

The Genuine Pearl Girls Society was formed to make sure we have friends, family and others to cheer on our victories, lend a sympathetic ear on our bad days, support us when faced with illnesses and personal challenges, and share stories of encouragement to reaffirm that better days lie ahead.

 

We hope that members share their strand of pearls called life to encourage and support other women.  Each strand of pearls was created with the Grit of Passion, Perseverance and Positive Projection.
