April Showers bring May Flowers

I am in Ohio and spent the holiday with family. The flowers are blooming everywhere as they have had above average temperatures for the past two weeks. However, we are supposed to have rain tonight and it reminded me of the old say “April showers bring May flowers”. My coach hat turns that comment into we need to nurture what we want to grow. Here’s the question for you-what in your life are you watering? Click here for the full article.

Kas Winters Don t buy that Toy

Have you ever spent money on a toy only to find that the child who received it had more fun with the box? Does your child ever sit, surrounded by toys and complain that he or she is bored and that there is nothing to do? My thirty-five year-old son recently said that my slogan should be, “You’ll never need to buy another toy again.” That’s a great idea. Of course, he grew up in an atmosphere where there was on-going creative play to stimulate imagination and provide experiences for hands-on learning. Our children did have some toys; but mostly, we spent time doing activities that were, quite honestly, more fun than many toys. These had the added value of building self-reliance and other traits that serve them well as adults. Click here for the full article.

Change children’s outlook from

This is the season when children are bombarded with gift possibilities through TV, the Web, catalogs, newspaper ads and conversations with friends centered around holiday gift requests. Whether or not money is an issue in your family, experiencing the joy of giving to others is a treasure of its own. Help children get excited about it. Click here for the full article.

Changing Our Stories

Last month your assignment was to explore the stories you tell in the areas of health, happiness, work, family and relationships. We focused on these five areas because we sometimes have the most creative and revealing stories in these areas of our lives. As you reflect on the stories you wrote begin to deconstruct them by identifying the hero or heroine, the victims, the circumstances, who has power and who doesn’t, and the general feeling you have about the story. Did you like you stories or did you find that some parts of your stories need changing? Click here for the full article.

They Don’t Come Alone

Recently I was invited to be a return guest on a local TBN Network program called “Joy in Our Town” hosted by Oralena Valero, to comment on the importance of proteins and carbohydrates. I am so grateful to Oralena for the opportunity that she gave me to contribute to the subject of health and wellness on her local program. It is my greatest desire to deliver information that will make all the difference in your personal pursuit of reclaiming your health and preventing disease in a simple and concise way. Programs like “Joy in Our Town” challenge me in the most terrific way to do just that. I am still working on it. Have you ever heard someone say, “He/she writes like they talk?” Hmm. I’ll keep working on it. Click here for the full article.

Turn Play into Teaching

After being around kids in all sorts of environments for years, I’ve decided that children learn the most when they think they are playing. Some walk into a classroom and immediately switch their brain to the “off” position. When having fun, they aren’t aware school is in session, and hands-on education takes place. I’ve watched them gain skills in reading, math, science, art, music and social studies without noticing anything but the good times. Click here for the full article.

Overcoming Blocks to Success

This month we are going to focus on the first roadblock- misalignments. Misalignments include; assumptions we are making about what is possible, attitudes and beliefs we have, biases we hold, convictions we have developed, and unexamined perceptions of self, others and the world. Misalignments can be also be viewed as incongruence in the ways that we think or ways that we behave which are out of sync with what we really want. For example, if you want to change a behavior but keep doing what you have always done, that is a misalignment. Click here for the full article.

I feel a Column Coming On

It was another superb nine o’clock in the morning in Charleston, SC, where we had come for a brief respite before the start of my travel season. We were seated in one of the finest of the many fine breakfast bistros in town, in one of the finest of the many fine hotels in town, and I was about to jump out of my skin.
