Thought-Provoking Fiction

Special price on Champion Series inspiration for kids as the new school year begins!

DemartiniWhen I first heard Dr John Demartini speak I was blown away by his story of dyslexia and disabilities – dropping out of school at 14 – hitchhiking across America on his own – discovering the voice of his intuition – realising some of his dreams when just a teenager – finally learning to read at 17 – and ultimately becoming an internationally renowned genius, scholar, educator, business consultant and mega-millionaire…
I wrote a children’s story about Dr Demartini called The Boy Who Barked, which he endorsed, providing photos from his youth that our artist, Yvette Bentata-Moore, could model on.
DonTolmanAnd then my attention was caught by health educator Don Tolman and his extraordinary story of living in a tiny mining town in the States – unexpectedly going to the local church one day – hearing a story about Daniel and a food called ‘Pulse’ that guaranteed great health, stamina and mental acuity – beginning a 17-year long quest for the recipe – and ultimately finding it and becoming a world authority on health and wellness…
I wrote a children’s story about Don Tolman called The Boy Who Found His Pulse, with Don’s full support, and launched both books in 2008… ten years ago!
Well, being the 10th anniversary of these books and the beginning of a new school year, I’d like to now offer them at a greatly reduced price so that we can get these inspiring stories in front of many more kids.
BWB coverTBWFHP CoverThe original price was $19.95 per book. As of today they will only cost you $9.95 each and $19.95 for both. So think about the children in your life! If you feel they’d benefit from some encouragement in the area of learning or healthy eating habits, do consider this purchase as a 'back-to-school' gift for your children.

‘Riches, my boy, don’t consist in having things but in not having to do something you don’t want to do, and don’t you forget it. Riches is being able to thumb your nose.’ - Brat Farrar by Josephine Tey

I was at a business networking event recently when I found myself chatting with Jay, an Indian businessman who shared with me the following story: 

Jay's son had discovered that his friend received 50c for doing the dishes. After telling his mother, she asked, ‘Do you want 50c too?’ 

Mother's Day last Sunday reminded me of an article I wrote years ago about my children and the antics they were getting up to. As my youngest have just turned 18, I'm entering a whole new era now. I was a very focused mother – we home-educated as well, hence the Nina character, so mothering has always been a huge part of my life. I've also been very entrepreneurial and so never expected any empty nest syndrome at all; I was quite taken aback by a temporary feeling of purposelessness when the girls turned 18. It was almost as if my 'raison d'être' was complete. 

ballet shoesLast week I went shopping with my 16 year old twin daughters to buy new shoes for their respective hobbies: ballet pointe shoes for one daughter and soccer boots for the other. I rather loved that outing because it was such a confirmation of our trust in our kids.

Having twins brings up all sorts of issues that we don't have to consider with children that come by-one-one. In particular, their individuality. Does one deliberately put twins into different classes and hobbies, or even schools, so that they develop their individuality, or does one allow them to decide how soon they are ready to diverge?
