A Note From the Founder - 2019 A Year to Collect Experiences

by Kerry Cordy

For those of you who did not know, my mother, Sandra Yearwood, passed away on December 8. "Grandma Sandy" to many of our members was the inspiration behind Frontier Girls as she was my Girl Scout leader growing up and did so well that she got 7 of us to our Gold Award. She was the one who gave me my passion for scouting as well as the courage to homeschool my kids and it was through these two passions that Frontier Girls was born.

My mother loved to collect experiences instead of things. She surfed in Hawaii, ziplined in Yellowstone, sang at Carnegie Hall, ATVed across the desert, flew to London just to have lunch (while a flight attendant for American Airlines), owned a pet skunk as well as two monkeys and a bobcat, snorkeled in the Turks and Caicos, kissed the Blarney Stone in Ireland and so much more. She was an elementary school teacher, a flight attendant, a travel agent, a Mary Kay consultant, a real estate agent, and the top trainer for American Airlines by the time she finally retired.

For Mom, collecting experiences didn't have to be grand however. Learning to play the clarinet, singing with a choir, sewing a wedding dress, or attending a local rodeo was just as exciting for her as her world travels. In her honor, I am setting a challenge for all of our members. In 2019, see how many new experiences you can collect. You can learn a new skill, visit a new place, make a new friend. It doesn't matter what you choose as long as the experience adds something new to your life. Share your experiences on our Facebook group or on your own social media with #frontiergirlsexperience so that we can find and share in your fun!
