Doing A New Thing – Again!

Who knew? It’s been 6 years since I’ve been on stage sharing The NED Show with elementary kids throughout the globe. During these six adventurous years I have sought my heart & soul about the call on my life. Sure, delivering 4,000 lbs of uniforms daily was a blessing. Sure, being the branch manager of a landscape outfit with no experience (being “green” to the industry as they say, “HaH!) was a challenge but was still a blessing.

I still kept asking God, “What is it you want me to do? Do I continue writing my kids book series #KidsHaveUpsAndDownsToo ? Lord, if I’m not to minister to kids and hop on an airplane to do it then what would you have me to do?” Well, at the end of Tami and I’s 21 day fast I received a text from the founder of www.thenedshows.com . I never saw that coming. But after a few conversations God confirmed the direction for my life – that I wasn’t through with his call on my life to write and to minister to kids.

God will reveal to me the purpose of the last six years and I will share that with you when he does. For now, I will gladly share this wonderful message with kids throughout the world and encourage them to choose a positive mindset on their mission in life. #BeTheBuddy “Promoting Literacy of the Heart and Mind will Cultivate the Landscape of a Child’s Future!” #HaveARomans1513Day

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

Footbag – What You May Not Know About Me

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. Booker Weed will befriend the school bully by inviting him to join him. Soon Billy will learn that finding something he could become good at will help him to fit in and get along with others and finally become a buddy not a bully. in one of the chapters. Booker Weed will invite Billy, the school bully, to kick with him. One thing will lead to another and soon Billy will learn what it’s like to be a buddy not a #bully.

Book Release “History”

The Bookmark

It’s finally here. It seems like forever, well actually it has been since 1979. At that time I was making greeting cards for the girls at school using Booker Weed in various poses and themes. From field hocky to volleyball Booker greeted friends of friends for the birthdays or just everyday fun. I was offered a greeting card contract In highschool that was supposed to make more money than Farrah Fawcett’s posters. Booker Weed was filed in the Register of Copyright’s Office, I had the contract in hand, and something was missing.
At eighteen you don’t have much business savy and my mom wasn’t much help. My stepdad was a great guy but an alcoholic who provided for us as well as he could but was incompasitated most of the time. That missing part was wise council and fortunately I had a sweet friend who worked for a contract attorney at the time and was kind enough to provide me his service free of charge since I was a student athlete with not a lot of spare time to work a full time job. After his review it was determined that the contract was too strict for several reasons and Booker would take a rest until many years after while returning to college while working for Rockwell International my marketing project was presented to my finance professor who had me present it to a weekend venture capitalist meeting in Palm Srings, CA. After fifty-six ideas were presented the group landed on Booker Weed greeting cards.
One investor slapped his checkbook on the table and said, “Show me a business plan and I’ll write you a check!” Of course I didn’t have a business plan developed and to this day I have no idea what happened to my finance professor after that eventful meeting and now after some thirty-three years since his appearance as a doodle on a Denny’s napkin Booker has a place, a place in the hearts of kids through the series of children’s books entitled, “Kids Have Ups and Downs Too!”. Each subsequent book will have the same title with a new sub title. Book number two will be “A Bully’s Journal” where Booker will befriend a bully followed by “Road Trip” where the cities on the road trip are named after character traits. I am thankful for the opportunity to minister to kids and thankful for friends such as Kevin Walsh who has embraced my dreams and been there to provide support in so many ways. Thanks for reading my blog. Happy reading, Clyde Heath
