(BALTIMORE, MD) Hailed as “Elder Grace to Youthful Face”, grandmother Celia Ford, daughter Theresa Allen, and granddaughter Pamela Simonson are different and unique. Their compelling theme, offering advice from three generations, continues to grow in weekly newspapers on the east coast. Ford, Allen, and Simonson recently began appearing in the Baltimore Times Newspaper, adding an estimated 80,000 new readers, to nearly a half million current readers, who see their popular advice column, Ask Pearls of Wisdom®.
“I enjoy reading three answers instead of just one like the rest of the advice columns,” many anonymous readers have written. The trio answers one question from three different perspectives. Multi-generational responses allow readers to enjoy the flavor of a Dear Abby, Dr. Laura, and Dr. Phil all at the same time.
“I pick the answer I know would be the best help and advice for me personally,” the readers continued. Ford, along with her daughter Allen, and granddaughter were 75, 50, and 25 when they began their advice column in the Washington Informer, Washington, DC nearly two years ago. Currently appearing in several newspapers, including the Prince George’s Sentinel, Baltimore Times, and the Montgomery Sentinel, the native New Yorkers receive an average of five to eight emails to PearlsofWisdom3 .aol.com each week from anonymous readers.
“The letters range from tweenagers to senior citizens, from relationships to job issues,” said the elder Ford.
“It is like having a conversation in my kitchen but we are talking to thousands of people at once,” the retired registered nurse continued. Ford was elated to know her opinion is as valued and important to so many people as some other advice columnist’s who have been around for years.
