a child is born with a heart of gold...the weight of the world makes her/his heart grow cold...

As parents one of our primary roles in our children's lives is to shield them from the cold hard facts of the world until they're ready to understand and fully comprehend them.

Coach them to believe they can do and be ANYTHING they can imagine...



Help them believe in the Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy and Santa Claus for as long as you can...

Instill in them a true sense of pride, that elevates them without devaluing anyone else...

Love and listen to them so they know they are ALWAYS loved and being heard...



Dream with them and teach them to DREAM BIG and in vibrant colors...

Respect them and teach them to respect themselves, other cultures, views and beliefs...

Empower our children to be free and unencumbered by the burdens you carry...

Nurture them to be strong individuals who never stop loving, learning and laughing...

Our children rely on us to encourage, teach and help them navigate their way through the world and this is our most important responsibility as parents. The world will distract, discourage and disappoint them from the path they set upon so our resolve must be strong, consistent and persistent toward these efforts.

So when the time arrives for them to make their own choices, decisions and way in the world they are prepared, empowered and ready...

I can recall something very soothing about staring deep into my newborn child's eyes. There's a depth and stillness that not only promotes inner peace but also suggests infinite wisdom. Perhaps its because they've just stepped from the hand of God and their minds are clear and uncluttered. Looking deep into my daughter's beautiful eyes was the best therapy, meditation and soul cleansing I've ever known. Within the depth of her gaze i was assured that all is well, exactly as it should be and i was granted peace. I also recognized the great responsibility that was ahead of me in teaching her to be all that she could be and anything she could imagine.

As parents our intention should always be to empower our children and foster creativity and independence in their thoughts, so they're able to think for themselves, dream as big as their imaginations can carry them and reach for all they're able to. If we lead by example and empower our children to follow in the footsteps we leave for them, they'll grow into the giving, caring and capable individuals we set out to create and bless the world with.

This should be our intention, what we strive to develop in our children and what we all hope to put out into the world. If we reach for all we can be and pass that desire onto our children we can ensure they'll do the same with theirs and create a family legacy we can all be proud of.

This should be the goal we all strive for together.
