In honor of International Women’s Day, I’m thinking of my mom and my grandmothers who all taught me how to use my voice for good. Watch me, my @todayshow family and others honor the women who impacted our lives through the link in my bio – and share your gratitude about the women who influenced you using the hashtag #BecauseOfHer.
She continued, “They were very, very different, and they taught us how to do so in such different ways. But whenever I think about women who’ve taught me how to be a woman, it is my mom and my grandmothers that I think about.”
Over the years, Jenna has shared similar posts about how much her mother and grandmothers mean to her. For instance, she even wrote a book about it! The book talks about the advice and life lessons she learned from her grandparents. The book is titled “Everything Beautiful in Its Time: Seasons of Love and Loss.”
In addition, the book comes out on April 28, 2020, but you can pre-order it now. Jenna has said that the book is truly for anyone who has ever lost someone they love. The book description says, “As long as I’m alive, my grandparents will not be forgotten … I hear their voices in the letters they sent me and in my memories. They offer comfort, support, and guidance, and I will listen to them always.”
