Nearly 20 people per minute

are physically abused by

an intimate partner in the U.S.?
1 in 3 women have been

victims of abuse and

Online Communities

What started as a letter to a few friends and family, soon grew to an online audience.  That audience reached Starla's connections regionally and through providential circumstances, expanded globally. Starla first launched an"encouragement movement" called Encouragement Enterprises. She then began sharing stories of her life down South through a regional blog that she calls Southern Drawl. Being an "encouraging southern belle" is the essence of who she is in all her complexity! Take a moment to check out these venues and follow Starla across social media!

Southern Drawl

Welcome y'all to "Southern Drawl," a place where you can experience southern hospitality through the eyes of a true "southern belle."

Encouragement Enterprises

Let's start an "Encouragement Movement!" Change a moment, change a day, change a life! YOU ARE LOVED!!!
