The magic and motivation behind writing “Planting My Values.”

When my four children were young I loved reading picture books to them and frequently volunteered in their classrooms to read for story time. Those brief moments were magical and fleeting. As a teacher or parent we savor those sweet smiles, wiggles and giggles, big yawns and inquisitive faces.

Those motherly moments resonated strongly and I wanted to write my own stories as a way of giving back to my community.  Raising children is one of the hardest jobs in the world.  Instilling a strong moral compass in our children is the cornerstone to raising responsible young adults. It takes dedication, motivation and a little magic!

I penned my notes early on but life got busy.  Last year I felt compelled to finish what I had started so long ago as a legacy to my own mother.

Join me in my journey! There is much more to come.
