Children’s Book Review: The Choice by Tools of the Heart

We each have an inner voice that speaks to us. There is a hunch, a feeling in our gut-- upon every new situation or encounter. This inner feeling and voice helps us stay true to ourselves in every situation. Learning to listen to the voice inside of us is very important. In The Choice by Tools of the Heart, Colin the strong oak tree is approached by Grubber the raccoon. Grubber is not very nice nor is he a very good listener. Colin becomes a bit suspicious of the new forest acquaintance who has come to visit. Colin's inner voice questions Grubber's true intentions.

Covid and Election Fatigue

I want to cry. I want to run away to a tiny island with my family and friends. I want to slam the door 🚪 behind me and never look back. I am TIRED. Fatigued. Over IT!!! Our world appears to be in total shambles. Everywhere I look online and on TV, people are arguing, accusing, hating one another. I can’t take it anymore. It’s making me sick. Anxious. Overwhelmed. Angry. But that’s just it— Everywhere I look online. Social Media. It’s nuts.
