Susan Jo Heitzman with Susan Michelle Burton, Ph.D. are offering a unique approach to your daughter’s first period in “Ahn’s Awakening”

A Journal for Pre-Teen Girls

North Vernon, IN, USA – WEBWIRE

A wonderful resource for a mother, grandmother, teacher or anyone who plays an important role in the life of a young girl.

“Ahn’s Awakening” transforms “the talk” into an ongoing conversation as you explore first menstrual experiences with your Beloved Pre-Teen Girls. You know their first period is imminent. And “Ahn’s Awakening” provides a fictional account of this experience. It offers you the ability to give your Beloved Pre-Teen Girls’ whole reproductive life a positive beginning rather than letting her experience fear, or disgust or self-loathing.
The prehistoric heroine, Ahn, and her family journey in a forest that guides their understanding of life and death. It is a story told in ten chapters that girls can read with you or on their own. Girls will find blank lines for journaling or doodling to the left of the written word. The adults should read the book cover-to-cover before sharing it with their girls. By absorbing the guidance, the mothers/mentors will feel confident in their roles at this significant time. The story, and encouragement to make this event in a young girl’s life a sacred process, comes with the beauty of the book’s images, and the opportunity to frame the girls’ first menstrual cycles in positive, life-affirming ways.
Susan Jo Heitzman’s “Ahn’s Awakening” will be displayed at the upcoming 2018 BookExpo New Title Showcase on May 31, 2018.

About the Author:
Susan Jo’s roles as daughter, wife, and mother among her other life relationships prepared her to receive the gift of the story that became “Ahn’s Awakening.” She first published this book as “Your Story, Ahn’s Story, and Our Stories” in 2007. The story came to her as she daydreamed about what a girl’s nomadic life in the forest might have been like thousands of years ago. Susan Jo is publishing this second edition with the help of Susan Michelle, a former psychologist who has taught human sexuality courses. This version of “Ahn’s Awakening” has a more fluid storyline and has even more materials and resources for mothers or mentors who are guiding pre-teen girls. The two Susans have a strong desire for this book to reach families before their beloved daughters and/or mentees experience their menarche (first menstrual period).

Amazed that a fictional account of menarche is a rarity, Susan Jo and Susan Michelle are eager to get this book to mentors, mothers, and their beloved pre-teen girls. Both women believe that additional fictional accounts of menarche would augment the many nonfiction books that teach girls the biological details of this monumental passage. The fact that menarche is often ignored in our current cultural stories is tragic. Susan Jo loves nature and feels compelled to walk outdoors in wooded areas as often as possible. At this point, her story is unique because her main character lives in total connection with the Earth as she explores her experience of her menarche. Susan Jo is a retired educator and a former bed-and-breakfast owner. She added to her resumé in 2014 by winning the Democratic primary as a candidate for U.S. Congress in Indiana’s Sixth Congressional District. Her love of our natural environment also guided her candidacy.
