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.
#BookerWeed – Go figure … This odd yet meaningful name brings so many memories to my mind. A highschool road trip to Eugene Bible College (now named Newhope Christian College) in 1978, and a repeat in 1979 – the many greeting cards I created for classmates while earning lunch money, the buttons we made in support of our military men & women and to honor those lost on the day of 911.
Now a self-published #author writing my third book in the series #KidsHaveUpsAndDownsToo, I intend to bring to the world’s attention that no matter what’s happening at home, in your neighborhood, or with your friends you have what it takes to make good choices.
This being inspired by eleven years traveling across 35 states and 5 countries as a yoyo professional encouraging kids to become champions in school and in life as I shared #TheNEDShow with 1.6 million kids. I can not measure the gratitude I have for #AllForKidz and as I move on in a more traditional management role I continue to focus on the dream of reaching exponentially more kids as a full time children’s book author concentrating on the hashtag #BeTheBuddy.
Now for some uke therapy …
Kids Have Ups and Downs Too -A Bully’s Journal, has reached the editor and Independent Authors Network is now hosting another author page for me. It takes a lot of time to promote a book as a self publsihed and self marketing author but with the help of my publisher, Mindstir Media and other internet tools I truely believe that BOOKER WEED will be America’s Next Household Name! Thanks ahead of time for visiting Independent Authors Network
In 1982 I became a Certified Footbag Instructor with the World Footbag Association (WFA) where I learned that Hacky Sack is a brand name but the sport is footbag – many kickers still call it “Hacky” but regardless it remains to this day a fun activity. “A Bully’s #Journal”, my next kid’s book in the series #Kids Have Ups and Downs Too, will feature footbag in one of the chapters.
