Excited to announce the release of Kids Have Ups and DownsToo!. Growing Literacy of the Heart and Mind Cultivates the Landscape of a Child’s Future. By including a journal in the back of our books we believe “If you encourage a child to journal their thinking turns to writing.” No matter what is happening at home, in our neighborhood or with our friends we have what it takes to make good healthy positive choices is the theme throughout my series of books. Just in time for Christmas Booker Weed will be a fun read and journaling will inspire kids to share their thoughts and feelings while reading their own chapter book.

Doing A New Thing

The day I stopped sharing a positive message about becoming a champion in school and in life I was faced with doing a new thing.  I was grateful for the opportunity to do something new – Today I am grateful to return to this arena. Stay tuned as I announce, in the days to come, the opportunity I have to do a new thing.

No matter what’s happening at home, your neighborhood, or with your friends you have what it takes to make good choices. Maybe that’s a new thing for you – #YouGotThis!

The Best Thing You Can Leave Behind

Looking back I remember wondering what I would be someday. Today I was thinking about what I would be some day. Tomorrow I’ll probably do the same.

As I write it’s clear that would’ve, should’ve, could’ve thinking wants me in a headlock, instead I choose to dream and wonder about what I will be some day.

Then I realize it’s not about what I will be some day but what my children will remember about me when they look back – then I conclude,

“The best thing you can leave behind is a good name.

Plan to Succeed …

Stay on the path! Life will distract you. When I was performing my last school assembly in England in 2013 I stopped planning and allowed the event in finding a new career distract from the career I really wanted – being an author. I reached 1.6M kids in six countries and thirty-five states as a NED Show performer so why wouldn’t I continue reaching kids in a positive, character-building way? How many more kids can I reach through books than in person? It’s exponential especially with today’s multimedia and social media opportunities. I met Tim with Blue Fish Web Design in Post Falls, ID today … Today I began planning my next career as a kids book author. Kids Have Ups and Downs Too the first book in the series, as well as the second book subtitled, “A Bully’s Journal” are available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Remember “Promoting literacy of the heart and mind cultivates the landscape of a child’s future”. #BookerWeed #KidsHaveUpsAndDownsToo #bethebuddy

Restoration Convoy

Restoration Convoy is our daughter’s non-profit. Here’s what her big sis had to say about it …

“My sister and her husband have a non-profit in the Tri Cities that blesses homeless teens with a senior photo session, plus a makeover, new clothes, and other special necessities. Their prayer is that the teens feel a sense of normalcy—or even more than that: a sense of value. Their program is growing and they are looking for donations to renovate their RV so that they can take the outreach on the road. And they’ve got the big goal to raise enough to fund the project in ONE DAY. Please visit their page and consider donating!”

Please consider impacting the life of a sheltered youth and help get this Airstream on the road with a small donation … thanks so much!

What is Your Anthem?

What is your rousing or uplifting identity that tells others who you are? Maybe you want others to know your call in life or maybe your cause? I want others to see how I try to live like Christ spoke the Truth because He was the Truth speaking. I want Christ to be my anthem. I may hit a wrong note at times but the conviction of my heart sets me back on track. I write & illustrate kids books because the anthem of #BookerWeed is sharing with kids that no matter what’s happening at home, their neighborhood, or with their friends they have what it takes to make #goodchoices.Picture 014
