Coming Fall 2020


Smart Talk Exceptional Women

Welcome to The Stew: Art & Insights Book

Women thrive on real-life experiences, smart talk, innovative ideas, and insights from our sisters. The STEW is a 200-page full-color book of 60+ women's stories, poetry, and custom art. Join us to serve women of the world

15 Years Ago It Began with a BIG IDEA...Women Helping Women

Our latest project is The Stew book, a curated list of women contributors sharing their journey and insights. It will be a full-color book filled with original artwork from Betsy Wiersma, poetry curated from Carol Calkins breadth of work, and 'delicious' stories collected from women around the world.

Set to be published in October 2020.


This endeavor began with Betsy believing that women thrive on real-life innovation, ideas, and experiences shared by other women.

In her years spent building a tribe of sisterhood, Betsy has found that women want smart talk, bold ideas, and insights discovered along our paths from life's journey. The Stew is a yummy mix of inspirational art, proven ideas, heart-felt stories, poetry, and quotes.

The contributors are women who open their hearts and have the purpose of serving others.

The STEW is organized into five sections: Share Your Voice, Creativity Connects, Love Wins, Do Good Have Fun, and Fly!


Meet the exceptional women who are contributing their time, talents, and stories to the STEW.
