A Bully’s Journal
Pleased to announce two books are now available on Amazon and B&N. Throughout the series kids will be inspired to consider that no matter what is happening at home, in their neighborhood, or with their friends they have what it takes to make good choices. Learn from mistakes they don’t have to be your own. Be The Buddy! My books can you do just that!
Have a Romans 15:13 day!
Great are the choices some make and not so great are the choices many make – or so it seems. Everywhere we see the hype over bad choices. We feed on it, it’s our dessert after a long day and for some we thrive on it. I often wonder what a life full of reports of the good in others would be like. Would we turn the station on the bad stuff only to look for the good? I crave for others to know the good that is in them. Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty said it best, “I have to make a valiant attempt to be good.” What if we all put on our armor and suited up for battle to make a valiant attempt to be good. What if we realized that no matter what it’s like in our home, our neighborhood or with our friends we have what it takes to make good choices. What would the bully do with all that hurt inside? Maybe we would understand why bullies act the way they do. Just maybe the evening news would report on the valiant behavior of a good deed instead of highlighting the junk. Rather than being all puffed up with ourselves we might reach out care about how someone felt when they witnessed them being mistreated … am I speaking to adults? No, I speaking to the generation currently in our elementary schools. Maybe we can realize our school campus, classroom or teacher is a safe place to be – where you can get away from the broken promises at home or the substance abuse parent or the violence. Make your campus a place where bullies can change and learn to be respectful. Bullies can change if we just take a step back and ask, “Why?” If you’re being bullied maybe try asking, “Why are you bullying me?” or maybe, “Why do you want to treat me this way?” or maybe, “When you say or do those things I feel ________.” Make a valiant effort to do good. Report a good act. Copy a good deed. Learn from example it doesn’t have to be your own. More later ….

A Bully’s Journal
Campaigning is a necessary evil – Without it no one knows of your lifetime effort to bring Booker Weed
to every household, school, and library – doing it takes everything you have to try and be creative and grab the attention of the consumer. I will continue and be glad in it!
Book No. 3 in the series, “Kids Have Ups and Downs Too” is subtitled “Road Trip”. The reader will find Booker Weed and friends on road trip to Character County. They will visit many cities named after character traits. They are joined by Billy Elims (smile backwards), the star of Book No. 2, which should be available on Amazon & Barnes & Noble in about three weeks.
Please tell us what character traits you want included by going to our Fertile Ground Creations fan page. You can also sign up for our newsletter by clicking on Booker Weed News. We look forward to hearing from you and thanks for participating
Making Booker Weed America’s next household name is a huge undergoing. I’m just a former aerospace supervisor who got laid off and thought, “What am I going to do the rest of my life?” Screenprinting from my garage didn’t work so well, loading UPS trucks gave me tendanitis, and customer service at a Shell gas station made me fat eating the snacks that surrounded me to stay awake.
When God speaks to you it may not be something you hear but it penetrates your heart and soul as it did mine the week following the end of my aerospace career. I simply asked, “God, what would you have me do?” His reply: “You’re going to minister to kids and have to fly to do it.” I became a yoyo professional and for the last ten years I have been blessed to speak to more than 1.3 million kids worldwide and encourage them to become champions in school and in life as a NED Show performer for All For Kidz, Inc.
Inspired by my notorious childhood and the word God spoke to me I have wrtten my first book in the series, “Kids Have Ups and Downs Too!” starring Booker Weed. For me to minister to kids and continue to fly to do it Booker Weed must become a household name. If I can reach over a million kids in person imagine how many more kids I can reach with a successful series of kids books.
