I wish I had this available
for my Coming of Age…
But having it available for today’s girls
is the next best thing!!!
Before you got your first period your Mom not only
talked openly about it, but was excited for you?
She celebrated it with you rather than shushing you into the bathroom with a box of pads?
When you got your first period you felt prepared
A while ago I was approached by Jessica Jarman-Hayes, a fabulous young artist, who asked me to write a booklet for a First Period Kit she was creating.
Little did I know, when I excitedly accepted, how talented this young lady was!
The result is a full color, stunningly beautiful booklet, which far exceeded my expectations!
It was a joy to write, and an honor to have it be part of an empowering First Period Kit!
What a delight to have it for celebrating a loved-one’s arrival into the sacred cycle of womanhood.
Here is The Table of Contents for

Girls’ Own Experiences:
“I gave my daughter the Diva’s Guide To Getting Your Period. Prior to that she showed shyness and awkwardness at the topic when I raised it. On giving her the book she devoured it and came excitedly to me to share her thoughts, insights and pleasures from it!”
~ Annette, Mother of Ginger (11 years old), Brisbane, Australia
“I gave the Diva’s Guide to my neighbor as a gift, for her 11 years old daughter. Interestingly, the girl got her 1st period a couple of weeks later! She was scheduled to go to a sleepover with all the girls in her class. She decided to take the Diva Guide with her, and the girls all took turns reading it out loud to each other!”
