Terry Grahl is the Founder, Visionary and CEO of Enchanted Makeovers. She is also a co-author of several books, including the Best Seller Women's Studies Book, Women Will Save The World. Since 2007, Enchanted Makeovers' mission has been to transform shelters for women and children into places that inspire behavioral and psychological change. Through their various projects, mentoring programs and makeovers of the physical space, women and children are introduced to a way of thinking that helps to shift their outlook about their lives and possibilities for the future. The shelter is transformed into a "beacon of hope". Mentoring programs such as the "Sacred Sewing Room", "Stepping into the Dream" and "Capes for Kids" develop important life and coping skills. Terry believes in serving with your talent, the power of words and that "she is me". What began as a simple phone call in Dec. 2006 asking if she would volunteer her time and paint a wall at a shelter, hearing that still small voice "trust me" after the visit guided her to take that leap of faith and close her for-profit business and start a non-profit. Today, Enchanted Makeovers has grown to be a national charitable organization that is empowering women and children living in shelters and uniting communities worldwide. She lives in Taylor, Michigan with her husband and four children.
