ABILENE, Texas - Tuesday night, Abilene had a very special guest.
Jenna Bush Hager, daughter of President George W. Bush, was in town to speak. She was keynote speaker for the sixth annual Healthy Woman event put on by Abilene Regional Medical Center.
Hager reports for NBC News and is an editor at large for Southern Living Magazine.
It was a sellout at the Abilene Civic Center to hear the former first daughter. But she didn't want to talk politics. Instead, she wanted to talk about teaching in the inner city, her time in Africa, and how difficult it is for women to balance health and family with work.
"I think as a working mom right not it must include balance, which somebody needs to teach me how to find," Hager said, "because it's hard to balance your work with your marriage or relationship and being a mom. But I think a healthy woman needs to make time for themselves."
Hager said that unlike her father and grandfather who were presidents, she doesn't care for politics.
