At Harmony Soup we are dedicated on producing books for children that help them to see and know how
wonderful they are.
Inside the heart and soul of every person is a treasure worth more than any amount of gold found on this
Earth. This is why I put as the last page of my published children's book a Gold Mirror. When a child first sees
themselves in a golden reflection it is a moment that brings to their hearts and mind, I am a pot of gold. I am
valuable. I am fantastic and unique. WE all need to feel that we matter and that we have great value inside of us.
We need to share this feeling with others and spread the word that if we live life as being our best friend and
treating others the same we will experience Joy, Peace and Harmony.
Children are wonderful. They will always tell you the truth. If they don't like you, they will tell you so, or ignore
you. They are open with their feelings and honest. They live in the moment. I have treasured every single minute I
have spent with them. They have been generous with their love and appreciation. I have been blessed beyond
measure to be in their presence and hear their pure and simple wisdom. They have been my teachers, my
inspiration and I love them all.
After 300 book signings, I have learned that children want to be engaged with something that is meaningful to
them. Their feelings their emotions are open to the sky and they express them without hesitation. When I read to
them they start to interact immediately because the words in the book ask them questions. Children not only want
to ask questions they want someone to ask them a few...:-) I have been awe struck with the answers these
Beautiful, Brilliant children say. They are so intelligent and more aware of things and people around them then we
all realize. It is heart warming to me when a child lights up from the inside and becomes animated expressing from
a core level about their life experiences and what they have learned from the observation of us humans. They are
so smart! They are the Stars in my world that light up my life everyday. They are the reason I write the way I do. I
know they understand and I will give them no less than 100 % of my respect.
We are all exactly the same inside. After all we all laugh and cry in the same language, even though we may
experience different things in different ways and degrees.
" I am asked all the time what inspired me to write this book. The truth is my friends, I was an abused and
neglected child. However, as my spiritual teacher and guide has said. "The past is a ripple you can't catch."
So, all we can do my friend is ask Divine Spirit to help us forgive and to heal.
Our feelings exists whether there is situations in our lives or not. They are alive! So, they can be hurt. We
need our feelings to be balanced, well and whole. We need to care for them . That is why I wrote this book and
created a wonderful character by the name of "MR. POSITIVELY THE RAINBOW CLOUD" with his colorful,
wonderful doors with faces which are his feelings and emotions. I wanted through my book to help remind
children that there are reasons for their feelings and emotions. I want them to know what their feelings are meant
for and to help them to remember these simple rules. They are:
THE GOLDEN RULES:
1) "To love yourself." If you love yourself you are and will be safe with you.
(2) "To love others, the way you would want to be loved." If you truly love others they are
and will always be safe with you.
So, it is easy to see if you are loved by others, you will know and feel your safe by the way they care for your
mind, body, soul and spirit and you and your loved ones will know their safe by the way you care for their mind,
body, soul and spirit.
Quality of Life is simple, as long as we choose not to use our free will to harm others or harm ourselves. My
friends, I am only wanting with my books to inspire you to look with in yourself and see the brilliant being
(SOUL) you are and always will be.
The choice is yours.
Choose DIVINE LOVE"
