Be Strong By Bending

Many of you know Dr. Wayne Dyer transitioned from the physical realm to the spiritual realm this past month. We personally were greatly impacted by his wisdom. His knowledge will go on teaching humanity millenniums to come. 

A Tribute To Wayne Dyer. Watch now for free. 


 A genuine soul speaking to her mother and secretly to all humanity (in our opinion). Wise words from an old soul.

After listening to her divorced parents arguing, this little 6y/o gives mom a lesson that mom realized we should all hear, so she shared it.. Take 2 minutes to listen because this little girl is wise beyond her years.... And let's hope she gets what she wants :)

Backpack Snacks: Budget Friendly Foods on the Go [INFOGRAPHIC]

This month's guest post is frrom FoodInsight.Org

We know the kiddo's are heading back to school. It's always a great idea to keep a list of snack and lunch ideas handy. We do encourage you to use handy reusable containers for your lunches to reduce waste. One of our favorites is Bentgo boxes.

To keep that thirst for knowledge going all day, students need to keep themselves full and focused. Turns out, there are plenty of nutritious options to stuff in their knapsack.

Quantum Kids

We came across the topic of special gifted children over 25 years ago. We are fully excited to see it finally starting to become mainstream. This video captures the abilities of children who can tap into the quantum field and relay messages of the books contents. They are literally reading the books through vibration and touch.

How To Make Herb Butter With Your Children

Many moons ago together we took a horticulture class in college. One of our assignments was to make organic herb butter. We fell in love with herbs and their many medicinal properties and uses.

Here's one of our favorite recipes we like to make all the time. It's perfect for snacks on breads and crackers, add it to your steamed veggies or baked potatoes. It's up to your palate how you use it. This is an easy and quick recipe to make with your children. They could actually do it themselves with your guidance.

Here is the ingredients and supplies  you will need.

* Softened Butter
* Your favorite dried herb
* Bowl for mixing
* Spoon for stirring

Set your butter out on the counter until it's soft and pliable.
Add butter and herb to your bowl.


Easing back-to-school jitters By Mary Jo Rapini

School bells are ringing and kids are everywhere. As you drive slowly through school zones, you can see and feel the excitement in the air. Kids are walking to school, getting out of buses, and being dropped off on the curb. Some of them look excited and are laughing, while others look confused, withdrawn and afraid. Parents have a powerful influence over their child no matter how old their child is in regards to their school-year success. Easing back-to-school jitters is an important step that parents should prepare for and encourage their child to prepare for as well.

"School jitters don't begin the first day of school. Most likely, they were going on during the last third of the summer."
