Women’s Life Link would like to introduce, Genny Heikka. She is one of the beautiful women we found out there in the blogosphere that we feel you should get to know. Genny is a mom of two and when not tangled up in the affairs of such, she is administrating her blog My Cup 2 Yours and working on other writing projects. Recently, we caught up with Genny and asked her to share some life tidbits with us.
WLL –Tell us who you are (not what you do).
Genny – I’m a wife, mom, sister, daughter, friend. A woman who feels blessed to have a passion for life and my purpose in it. I multitask well, bake killer (according to my kids) brownies, love writing, reading, dancing, and I enjoy spending time with my family over anything else.
WLL – What is the main focus of your life right now for business and family?
Genny – Business–I’m currently seeking representation for a couple of my manuscripts. I also write for a variety of magazines and Web sites and love doing that. Family–With summer already coming to an end, I’m really focusing on having fun with my kids, my husband, and friends.
WLL – What was the most memorable moment of your life?
Genny – I know it’s probably cliché to answer this way, but honestly, the most memorable moments in my life have been my wedding day and when my son and daughter were born.
WLL – That’s exactly what you should say…
WLL – Who or what inspires you?
Genny – God, deep talks with my husband, watching my kids, reading about and learning from the experiences of other people, and writing.
WLL – What advice would you give to women who want to be healthier?
Genny – Exercise. Spend time with friends. Date your husband. Find something that makes your heart sing and go do it.
WLL – What is your best healthy beauty tip?
Genny – Again, exercise. Drink a lot of water, eat big salads with your meals, treat yourself to dessert. Do everything in moderation and don’ t try to be perfect.
WLL – We’re glad someone else sees the correlation between health and beauty.
WLL – How do you deal with stress?
Genny – Pray, exercise, or talk about it—usually in that order.
WLL – You can vent anytime you want here at Women’s Life Link.
WLL – What does your future hold?
Genny – Growing old with my husband and seeing our kids grow up happily, I hope. A best-selling book would be nice too. But the older I get, the more I realize it’s not necessarily all about my plan. More and more, I’m along for the ride. And it’s a great one.
WLL – How do you think other women see you?
Genny – Passionate. Energetic. Sensitive. Caring. Hopefully encouraging.
WLL – Any regrets?
Genny – No. I’ve learned that the mistakes we make are part of our journey. It’s often been mistakes that have taught me important lessons or changed me in ways that I never would’ve experienced had I no
I took the opportunity to visit your blog and web site – very nice. You’re a very personable person and it radiates with you. Dr. Terri Hawkins-Fox
It was great to learn more about Genny here.
I always enjoy Genny’s writing and missed her so much while she took her blog break.
Her answers reveal her heart – authentic and real.
I totally agree! She is someone you want on your side while doing life…even if it’s just on the web.
I’m so glad that you spotlighted Genny. Her blog is definitely one of my favorites. She is a terrific writer and she has a knack for storytelling. I always learn something from her posts – usually something important about life and about keeping my priorities straight.
Genny strikes me as a warm, genuine, and caring person – and I’m so happy that I “met” her via the blogosphere.
Thanks so much, Kellie!
