Lessons About Life, Love and Taking Care of Business for Young Women Today

Barnes &

My grandmother was a compassionate, fun-loving, no-nonsense woman with firm beliefs and values and she was never at a loss for words to express them. Her words of wisdom have instructed, encouraged and inspired me to become the respectable woman I am today. The lessons I learned at Granny's kitchen table will make you laugh and cry as you reminisce about the things your mother, grandmother or special elder taught you. This fun, quick-read also makes a great gift for the special young women in your life who need to be taught some "old school" lessons.


Granny even considered it impolite for a child to call an adult by their first name. She called it, “being too familiar.” We had to include “Mr. or Ms.” or “Uncle or Aunt” in front of adults’ names and we had to answer our elders with, “yes, Sir” or “no, Ma’am”. Even as an adult, I’m not comfortable calling an elder by their first name and I still answer my elders using “yes, Sir” or “no, Ma’am”.

Self-praise is half scandal.
Humility went a long way with Granny.
Granny thought it very rude to boast or brag on oneself. Again, there’s nothing wrong with self-confidence, but when it crosses the line to arrogance or conceit, or when you begin to believe your own hype, it becomes very unattractive and downright scandalous.
Try to let your work and your looks speak for themselves. If something is notably good or if you’re truly “pretty” (inside-out), others will say so. You won’t have to.
