What is the Modern Prairie App?

Our Modern Prairie App is aimed at creating a community that empowers women to come together to learn, share and grow. It is centered around modern, mature women and their needs, focusing on encouraging them to build confidence as they age – gratefully. As we age it can feel like a struggle to be seen, heard, and valued which can result in us feeling isolated or that we don’t belong. Within our app you are important, visible, and relevant! You can connect, discuss important topics, learn, and more.

You belong here! Explore, engage, connect, and have fun! So what are you waiting for? Grab your girlfriends and get inspired!

    I’ve missed this app for 4 years ? My favorite actress, grew up watching & we’re the same age. I can’t believe I didn’t hear about this fabulous app !

    Already see so many beautiful items I want :)

    I know I’ll be spending lots of time here 💕


  • Encouragement and positive support!!

    This site is judgement free, encouraging and has so much positivity that I find myself checking many times through the day!!


  • Great App!

    Love this app! I love that it can feel like a way to escape from the craziness of this world and interact with others that bring you comfort. My favorite part is having your favorite childhood actor be a huge part of it and interact with the rest of us. Not a lot of celebrities out there even give you the time of day. This “place” is so refreshing!
