What We Do


What we do to the Earth, we do to ourselves and our children.

Treat the Earth with kindness and respect and it will only benefit our future - treat it harshly and our children will reap the consequences. 

What we do to each other, we do to ourselves.

One kind action can change someone's life for the better and have a positive impact on countless others. One unkind action can cause a chain reaction of anger or sorrow. When we act with kindness, we feel good, and certainly the opposite is true as well.

What we do to ourselves, we do to our children.

Children pay attention, closer attention than we think, to what we do, how we act, and how we treat ourselves. They learn how to treat themselves by how we treat ourselves. Be kind to yourself. Love yourself. Be imperfect and celebrate your imperfections. All the things you tell your kids, "You are smart. You are beautiful. You are loved..." tell yourself also. Out loud. I front of your children. 

What we do to each other, we teach to our children.

When we treat others with love, we teach our kids love - and to love others. When we unconditionally love others - all others - we teach our children to walk in the footsteps of God. If we say an unkind word about another or show disdain or malice toward another, we teach our children hate. We teach them to walk away from God. 

What we do impacts Life.

Our lives, our kids lives ...and family and friends and strangers and generations yet to come. Sow the seeds of kindness and love - toward the Earth, toward yourself, and toward others - so that future generations can reap the benefits of the world it will create.
