Pay It Forward Conference

This is a letter I received this week from one of the Pay It Forward leaders:

Hey Everybody,

Here are the details and the sign up link for the "World's First Ever Pay it Forward Experience" happening here in Utah in Late October. We have an amazing group of speakers coming in such as Catherine Ryan Hyde (author of Pay it Forward), Adrianne Schmidt (creator of Karma Experiment with over 1.2 million followers), Bob Littell (creator of NetWeaving - ) and Hannah Taylor (Founder of Ladybug Foundation -

The event takes place on the 21st - 23rd of October and we will start it out early Friday morning with a BIG pay it forward project in the community.  We have teamed up with the Mayor and she has requested we "Paint the Parks".  Hundreds of us will converge on the city parks and make them look amazing for the Community.  We will also be doing an event called "Blanket the City" with the Roadhome Homeless Shelter to make sure they have enough Blankets for the cold Winter months ahead.

We hope you can join us physically but understand if you can not. For those who can't make it we still want you to be a part of this amazing event with us so we will be broadcasting this event LIVE, all 3 days of it!  You will be able to watch it from home, or maybe at your office or maybe at your school with your classmates.  This option is going to make it so people from all over the world will get to see this world changing event but they will get a little extra as well. How about some behind the scenes access and backstage interviews with the speakers? This will be exclusive to those viewing via the webinar from all over the world.

Money will be going to the Ladybug Foundation, the Pay it Forward Foundation and the RoadHome Homeless Shelter so come on out and join us.  Here is the link to sign up -

Thanks for listening and hope you can join us on this World Changing Journey.

If you have a way to promote this via your website, Facebook, etc. please do so. The more people who know about this project the better. Thank you.

He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother

After my post, Brotherly Love , I received an email from a reader who reminded me of this song. I knew the song, but had never really thought about the words and the meaning behind them. I looked it up and thought others might see the lyrics in a new light.   He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother The road is long With many a winding turn That leads us to who knows where Who knows when But I'm strong Strong enough to carry him He ain't heavy, he's my brother. So on we go His welfare is of my concern No burden is he to bear We'll get there For I know He would not encumber me If I'm laden at all I'm laden with sadness That everyone's heart Isn't filled with the gladness Of love for one another. It's a long, long road From which there is no return While we're on the way to there Why not share And the load Doesn't weigh me down at all He ain't heavy, he's my brother. He's my brother He ain't h

ABC's of ABA

A few weeks ago I attended a workshop presented by a behavior therapist. As it turned out, I went to a conference on the same topic over a year ago. I will describe what I have taken away from these methods in my own words - but please take a look at the links I have provided below. After I learned about this, life with children made a lot more sense to me. Not that this is earth shattering material, but it helped me to better understand the hows, whats and whys of behavior in children, and occasionally husbands. I am in no way an expert in this - just a parent who wants to share a behavior strategy that has worked in our home. I hope to inspire others to explore it further.  Any errors in information comes from me and cannot be blamed on the presenters. Also, you may have seen ABA - Applied Behavior Analysis - connected most often with Autism - please do not let this deter you if your child is not autistic. I use these methods with all my children, none of which are labeled au
