EDITOR'S NOTE

With every word and every gesture, we can make a difference. If we only knew how much it mattered, how a simple act of kindness could affect someone. It is in a genuine smile, in holding a gaze that sees the soul, in a heartfelt compliment, in an embrace that warms the heart. It is holding a door and seeing who is coming up behind you. It is being considerate. It is often in what seems like fleeting moments, that being present and being aware, and deliberately choosing to be a light, can be a difference maker.

About

While reading SIOUXLAND MAGAZINE we hope to educate and inspire our readers, but even more importantly, to create a community that thrives on connecting with one another. At our core, we all want to connect. When we seek to understand by listening more intently, we find that our relationships deepen and our community strengthens as a result. With our appreciation for the power of connection through meaningful conversations, it only made sense to call our publishing company Empowering Conversations, LLC.
