TanglewoodMoms.com BIG News!
It’s been just over a year here at Tanglewood Moms and we’ve seen so much happen to our wonderful community of women!
We have loved sharing articles about what you have voted as best of the best, exciting events and activities Fort Worth has to offer as well as deeper and more serious articles that have resonated with many members of our community. You have helped build this little idea into something that we hope to develop into the culture of Fort Worth as recognizable as the brick paved streets of Camp Bowie or TCU frog fountain. The writers came together for a meeting of the minds to discuss the future of the blog and the services we offer. While this will always be a work in progress, we hope that by opening up our business directory to ALL applicants we can make it a more rich and diverse array of resources you can easily search through the websites.
We also established a motto that we hope you will share with your friends and family that might not know about us.
If you would like to add your business to our directory, please click HERE.
Once complete, please email your business name to firstname.lastname@example.org for us to publish your listing and we follow up with how we can best serve you through this wonderful network.
And lastly, if you have an interesting story you’d like us to share or someone you think we should be highlighting for their work in making Fort Worth a better place to live, please nominate them in the comments below. Our writing staff will be hard at work planning our fall calendar, so here’s your opportunity to let us know WHO we need to shower!
Hello! I read your recent update (congrats on a one year anniversary!) about seeking nominations for someone who makes our community a better place to live, and a name instantly popped in my mind: Kim D’Avignon. I have known Kim for nearly two decades, and we have both been practicing law in Fort Worth for over 15 years. In my profession as a family law lawyer, every now and then I am involved in a case that is very difficult, in that it involves a child who has been victimized. For me, these types of cases are few and far between. However, in her role as a Tarrant County Assistant District Attorney, Kim (along with her team at the DA’s office) tackles these difficult issues every single day. In reading the Star-Telegram, her name is routinely listed as the prosecutor in some of the most heart breaking cases in our area. She works tirelessly, and around the clock, to put a stop to those who victimize our communities most innocent and fragile members – the young, the elderly, the disabled. For those who do not have a voice – she is their voice, and roars loudly to protect them. Years ago, I sat in for a portion of a trial in which she was prosecuting the assault of a young girl in Arlington. The facts were devastating. She presented such an impassioned speech to the jury that the offender was found guilty in less than 15 minutes. More impressive than this was to watch her interaction with the victim’s family. She showed compassion and kindness to this family, who had already endured so much. In her ‘spare’ time, Kim is a head volunteer at Camp Fire El TeSoro, a week long grief camp for children ages 6 to 17 who have lost a loved one. At the camp, Kim helps these children play, laugh, and heal together. I am often guilty of living in the “Tanglewood bubble”, and at times become insulated from some of real life ordeals Kim and her team are confronted with every day. As a mother in this community, I truly sleep better at night knowing Kim is out there, and in our corner. Finally, for what its worth, Kim would probably be mortified that I would ever nominate her for something like this. She doesn’t seek the spotlight, and does her work selflessly. However, I believe that women like Kim should be recognized and celebrated! She is a one of a kind, and I am proud to have her in Fort Worth. Thank you for the opportunity to share this nomination. Thank you, Brenda Hasenzahl

Deborah Beck who manages Feed by Grace is an amazing woman. I’ve been volunteering wth that group for a few years, and every trine I go and talk to her, I am blown away by her dedication and heart. She loves the homeless so much, and I know the group does not get the financial assistance they should get, or respect. The community gardens that everyone took such pride in growing were trend into a parking lot:( it was a huge blow to the entire community. But she won’t give up. She deserves to be recognized for her strength, compassionate heart, dedication and willingness to sacrifice to continue helping the homeless community. No matter what she has been through or what has come get way, she perseveres. I’ve learned bits and pieces of her life story which is amazing itself- it all plays into how amazing and bracve she is.
