For most women, getting through the day requires a sense of humor, unwavering positive thinking, and occasionally, removal of all sharp objects from the kitchen.
Navigating the challenging waters of womanhood it isn't easy, but it can be interesting, exhilarating and downright FUN.
For over 25 years, Mary Fran Bontempo has been writing for and about women as she moves through life along with her readers.
Now in life's "middle ground," Mary Fran created Not Ready For Granny Panties--first a blog, then a book and now a way of life--to encourage women to make themselves a priority in their own lives, getting the most from each day and claiming their right to joy and a daily dose of fun.
A frequent speaker and media guest, Mary Fran inspires audiences with "commandments" designed to push them out of their comfort zones and into the best of life. With directives like "Thou Shalt Fuhgeddaboudit," "Thou Shalt Scare Thyself," and "Thou Shalt Engage in Idol Worship," Mary Fran challenges listeners to rise above their ruts with laughter and enthusiasm.
is the new "Bible" especially for women in life’s “middle ground.” The women who take care of everyone else before themselves. The women for whom FUN is has become a dirty word. The women who are stuck in a middle-aged rut and headed towards a life trapped in a giant pair of literal and figurative bloomers.
Aging is inevitable, but looking, and acting, like your grandma is not. Join Mary Fran Bontempo and learn a new set of "commandments" that will help you avoid the Granny Panties and love life in the middle years. You’ll laugh, learn a few things and bid a permanent goodbye to GRANNY PANTIES!
