"I didn't know what to expect when I came to the Statewide Gathering at the Dells, but it was one of the better things that has happened in my life. I have been working very hard on my life changes and am doing very well. My attitude has changed extremely. I am more positive at work and don't let the little things make me feel inadequate. I would very much like to express my gratitude to all of the women that were at the gathering."- Mary
