We have the opportunity to change this world for the better by what we teach our children. Are we leading by example? Are we fostering their development as it relates to diversity & inclusion at an early age? The children in our lives are watching our relationships and our interactions with not only friends and family but those who are outside of our circle as well. By demonstrating love in the common things we do each day, it helps to create a world where love is expressed and recognized even before differences are understood.
In my book, “What Does Love Really Mean?” my son Jackson is learning that love is not only a feeling but an action as well. I firmly believe that there is an indescribable value in understanding how to walk in love. Diversity and Inclusion should play a huge role in the decisions we make. If diversity and inclusion are not encouraged, it leaves room for omission, bias and prejudice. It’s not enough to introduce diversity experiences to our children. We must show them by accepting the differences in this world and appreciating the value in those differences. Love is the key to the change we are looking for in our lives. Live in love! Walk in love! An amazing story lives within all of us.

Small Changes Make Big Differences!
The summer is approaching and many of us are doing some “Spring Cleaning” in our homes, cars and offices. How does it make you feel to clean? For me I feel refreshed, like I have a new start at getting organized. The air seems much lighter, the rooms seem much brighter and I feel so relieved knowing that I’ve finally taken the time to do what has been needed.
My husband and I decided this spring that after being in our home for nearly 10 years that we would do something to make us fall in love with our home all over again. We decided to change the flooring throughout the house and it turned out beautiful. It’s amazing that one small change made such a big difference in the look and feel of the home.
Small changes make big differences! I related this concept to my family and asked each of my kids to think of one to two things that they would work on throughout the summer. Of course they asked lots of questions but we eventually determined things that we could each work on. Even after only a few days AND a few reminders from me they started to make changes on their own. Small changes make big differences! As we work on things in our lives that are holding us back from being our best, we will notice the big differences that it makes in the way we feel about ourselves and in the way others see us.
What are your thoughts? What are some of the small changes you’ve made that created a big difference in your life? Please share your thoughts and experiences.
