Keeping up with NeW over the Summer

How are you enjoying your time this summer?

The summer season is always a busy transition between semesters filled with traveling, family time, work, and hopefully some much needed rest. James Madison University’s Network of enlightened Women chapter is making it our priority to familiarize ourselves with some of the books from NeW’s recommended reading during our time off. In May, I compiled a few of my favorite books into a summer reading list. We will be reading What Our Mothers Didn’t Tell Us: Why Happiness Eludes the Modern Woman by Danielle Crittenden next semester so it is the first on our summer book list. In addition to keeping up with reading, we are working to stay involved in the conservative movement by attending conferences such as Eagle Forum Collegian’s Summit, Faith and Freedom Coalition, NeW’s National Conference and the Beacon Hill Society’s LIFE Conference.

What ways have you found to stay connected in the conservative movement this semester?
