The Book. The Song. The Gift. The Movement.

Let it change your life.

"I am proud to be a woman and I am proud to be included in this wonderful book of inspirational women. I hope to always be an inspiration, not only to other women but to the world.
God bless you, Mary Sue Englund."
-Dolly Parton

I AM A WOMAN is a lovely linen-bound coffee table gift book by Mary Sue Englund that captures the beautiful breadth of the female experience, with all its cluttered, clouded magic. Striking photographs and wise quotes from courageous women of all walks of life fill its pages.

IT IS A GIFT to be shared with all women, whether a CEO, an Olympic athlete, a senator, a teacher, a stay-at-home mom. Whether she is fighting an illness, struggling through loss, making a life change, watching children grow, or simply wondering where life is leading. I AM A WOMAN reminds every woman of her own grace and courage; that she can do this. Whatever this is. Because she is a woman, not in spite of it, but because if it.

Included in the back of the book is a CD of the song that celebrates this movement.  I AM A WOMAN is meant to engage more than just one of your senses. Let it change your life.

Along with the book, Mary Sue's I AM A WOMAN, also blesses women with an accompanying song and healing concerts.

Where are healing concerts performed?

We perform as a full band in theaters, music venues or in community centers, or as a duo in hospital waiting rooms, conference rooms, or in-house concert venues. We go where the music is needed!

Join us in helping to share I AM A WOMAN with the world. Become part of our giving program to put hope in the hands and hearts of every woman.

Help us empower women through giving and books. For every $25, we put an I AM A WOMAN book in the hands of a woman who needs it. All donations made through the ifundwomen.com campaign will go directly into books being donated to patients who are being treated at the Sarah Cannon Cancer Center in Nashville, Tennessee. 

I AM A WOMAN. It  is hope. It is beauty. It is inspiration. It is a song you can hold in your hands.

"Together with timeless images that in and of themselves speak thousands of words, the impact is undeniable. I fell in love from the start with the song “I Am A Woman” written by my dear friend, bandmate, and collaborator Mary Sue Englund, and songwriter Thom Shepherd. I have had the pleasure of seeing audiences respond to it with a jolt of recognition, often followed by tears. I knew the song succeeded for the same reason that any work of art succeeds: because it rings so true.” —PAM TILLIS

“Mary Sue's healing concert transported me to a serene place within my heart - amazing energy.” —Karen P., cancer survivor

“Mary Sue Englund's music is enjoyable and her voice beautiful. She was so kind and personable at her Healing Concert, interacting with the survivors and friends before, after and during the concert. She was such an inspiration with her enthusiasm and thoughtful and even profound lyrics.” —Dr. Angela Soto-Hamlin

“Mary Sue performed at two of our locations. The setting was intimate full of patients, caregivers, staff, and community members. The experience exceeded my expectations. It was inspiring, touching, thrilling, fun, and entertaining. The audience loved it. Mary Sue’s Healing Concert Series is one of the best things that our area has experienced. We hope that she will come to Central Pennsylvania annually and share her amazing talent with us.” —Leesa Vitek, CRNP
