These two are the latest. The Dear Child
manifesto is for anyone (teachers, grands, caregivers, parents) welcoming a child into their spaces. I think of it as a love letter to children. They are precious, deserving, and in big need of our welcoming hearts, always. Though I’m far from perfect, this manifesto is a guide for me as I strive to do my best when it comes to caring for one precious three year old.

The one above is a revision of an earlier one. I’m calling it The Be Brave Manifesto
. It’s for anyone who has ever traveled through brokenness which, of course, is all of us. May it provide even the tiniest bit of comfort on your journey toward peace.
The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.― Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
Thanks, guys. I’m thinking I’ll make more of these in the coming weeks. If you have a topic/theme you’d like to see manifesto-ized, feel free to share your suggestions in the comments. In the meantime, I just want to say a big thank you for being a part of my online tribe. I like you, a whole lot! XXO
