Welcome to This is Your Best Year!!!

Welcome to your best year.  You and I are on this journey together.  Together and collectively, we will give suggestions on living life to the fullest.  This is a blog for women who thought that when they reached this age, life was over.  This is for all of those women who thought their mothers were old at this age–well they may have been, but that’s not the case anymore.

We will discuss everything from health, beauty, faith, life, children, grandchildren, exercise, careers, retirement, starting all over again in love and/or career. We will talk about learning the word no, taking time to be who we are.  With this blog we will have fun, we will talk fashion, food,travel and all kinds of products–in other words, we’re going to talk about us.

You can always email me at: thisisyourbestyear@gmail.com.

Let’s get excited ladies, and stay tuned.  The first blog is set for this week.  Remember–THIS IS YOUR BEST YEAR!

Second Chances–We All Deserve One

The Texas Offenders Reentry Initiative (TORI) is a 12 month program that strives to assist offenders once they are released from prison.  The program helps clients with basic needs such as finding meaningful employment and housing.  One thing that sets TORI apart from other such programs is their offering of mentorship and spiritual guidance.

TORI graduation

TORI is a spin-off of the Potter’s House prison ministry and was started in 2004 by Bishop T. D. Jakes.  The initiative has serviced over 7,000 offenders both male and female with only 8 to 10 percent returning to prison.

The 12 month program culminated with a graduation ceremony with pomp and circumstance.  Judge Greg Mathis of television fame was the graduation speaker this year.


Second chances should be earned, and the graduates of TORI have earned theirs.  Here’s hoping they remember “thisis(their)yourbestyear”.
