Everyone needs an Erin Lawler Patterson in their lives.Back for a second time by popular demand, the Goodness Chick, as she is known world-wide, shares moments from her latest book Conversations For Good: Listening and Learning from Our Neighbors Around the World.It has been said this book is “Eat Pray Love” meets “Chicken Soup For The Soul!”One of her reviews said it beautifully:"In these COVID-19 days of isolation and quarantine, it is refreshing to read a book like this.  In the summer of 2019, the author, her husband and their three-year-old son set out on an around the world odyssey to learn about other countries, diverse peoples and themselves.  The book is a casual mix of all three....Lawler Patterson advocates reasonable risk-taking, a sense of wonder, kindness to all, compassion for those less fortunate, and a re-examination of the values by which we lead our lives each day.  In these polarized times, hearing these messages offers comfort as well as challenge."  WarrenStemming from a conversation during morning coffee one day at their then home in Medford Lakes, NJ, her and her husband made the decision to leave their secure professions, throw caution to the wind and give it up to God.  It was then they began the year-long process of planning one of the most memorable trips they would ever embark upon.  On a shoestring budget and packs on their backs, they bought a one-way ticket not sure when they'd be returning.   Conversations For Good  tells the stories of the lives of the many people they touched and who touched them through their volunteer service in local assistance programs.An accomplished author and public speaker, she is truly one of a kind and I am so proud and honored to call her my friend.  I highly recommend you check out her books, podcasts, blog and products, which can all be found on her website at https://goodnesschick.com.  Thank you to our Sponsor, Hardenbergh Insurance Group.  Visit their website at https://www.hig.net or reach out to them in the Delaware Valley at 856.489.9100.  They also operate in 42 states across the country.Finally, as Founder of Empower Kids, LLC, I love showcasing young talent.  I want to thank and recognize our musicians that take care of the musical Podcast Intro and Exit music.  Liam Graham is the guitarist, and Anna Yannessa, is a junior vocal major at the University of Missouri who plans on continuing studying voice performance at the graduate level.  She can be reached on Instagram @annyannessa19, on Twitter at @annayannessa and on FB at Anna Yannessa.For more information about my heart our mission at Empower Kids LLC visit me on social media:Facebookhttps://www.facebook.com/lisa.ozalisgraham and https://www.facebook.com/EmpowerKidsLLCTwitter https://twitter.com/EmpowerKidsLLCLinked In  https://twitter.com/EmpowerKidsLLCInstagram https://www.instagram.com/empowerkidsllc
Ready to be inspired??? Judy Newman believes, as I do, that we all have that power of one ability to create moments that can change lives for the better.   What struck me about this interview with the President of Scholastic Book Clubs is her passion for teachers, children  community and books.  She has made it her life-long mission to ensure they all remain connected through a variety of formats including distribution through Scholastic Book Clubs, her involvement and role as Board Member for the nationally acclaimed Reach Out And Read Program,in addition to facilitating and developing partnerships through grassroots community initiatives.A big believer in community, she walks the talk.  Known as the "book lady" she has gifted books instead of candy every Halloween to thousands of children and families over the last 20 years. Walk with us as Judy shares her journey and love of books which began as a young girl growing up in Newton, Massachussets.  It was here her appreciation for books began as her parents modelled the importance of reading always making sure her and her siblings had access to books and the freedom to choose what they read.   As a result she is steadfast in her belief that allowing children the freedom to choose what books they read is the most liberating and empowering gift we can give them.. She talks about her grandmother as being that power of one person who had a significant impact on her  life.  "My grandmother took me as I was..she just believed in me for who I was and I think that's what I've tried to do with my own children."We talk about her belief that ALL TEACHERS ARE ROCKSTARS.  On more than one occasion during the interview she takes the time to emphasize her respect for teachers and belief that "teachers do the most important work on the planet."  She shares that if she wasn't in her current role with Scholastic, she would have wanted to teach. Finally we get a sneak peak at her new book The New Dog In Town recently published by Scholastic on November 10th under the pen name of Pepper Springfield.   The book is the fifth in her highly successful Bobs andTweets series.She encourages anyone who shares her passions to reach out to her at  http://www.judynewmanatscholastic.com.  You may also e-mail her at jnewman@scholastic.com.See you on the path!Thank you to our Sponsor, Hardenbergh Insurance Group.  Visit their website at https://www.hig.net or reach out to them in the Delaware Valley at 856.489.9100.  They also operate in 42 states across the country.Finally, as Founder of Empower Kids, LLC, I love showcasing young talent.  I want to thank and recognize our musicians that take care of the musical Podcast Intro and Exit music.  Liam Graham is the guitarist, and Anna Yannessa, is a junior vocal major at the University of Missouri who plans on continuing studying voice performance at the graduate level.  She can be reached on Instagram @annyannessa19, on Twitter at @annayannessa and on FB at Anna Yannessa.For more information about my heart our mission at Empower Kids LLC visit me on social media:Facebookhttps://www.facebook.com/lisa.ozalisgraham and https://www.facebook.com/EmpowerKidsLLCTwitter https://twitter.com/EmpowerKidsLLCLinked In  https://twitter.com/EmpowerKidsLLCInstagram https://www.instagram.com/empowerkidsllc
I dedicate this episode to the late great Sir Ken Robinson, an educator whose 2006 TED Talk on encouraging creativity in students was viewed more times than any other TED Talk in history.  The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything  was one of his many best-selling books.   According to Robinson, "The Element is where natural talents meet personal passions. To be in your Element, it's not enough to be doing something you're good at... To be in your Element you have to love it: if you do, you'll never 'work' again."I can think of no better real-life example of this than through the passion and work of my recent guest Danielle Vuke, Event Coordinator of World Orphans.  Danielle says, "I think the most fascinating thing about a person is their story. I love the fact that God is continuously writing our stories through adventure, pain, discovery, relationships, and awareness." Walk with us as she takes us on  her powerful journey from being bullied as a young child; leaning into her faith to push through it;  the guidance and support she received from her dad encouraging her to always "keep her heart soft for the Lord"; the empathy and forgiveness she developed as a result  and the resilience she gained from staying true to her faith and pushing through to the other side.   While seemingly having it all in a fast -paced professional career, Danielle knew something was still missing.   Learn how two chance encounter opportunities with World Orphans brought her to the beautiful crossroad in life where her talents of photojournalism met up with her passion and love for children.   It was there at the crossroad she was able to find her life's true purpose through partnering with World Orphans. And she's never looked back.For information on World Orphans visit https://www.worldorphans.orgFor the Storymakers Conference follow them on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/events/elston-family-church/story-maker-conference-world-orphans/2798073490516495 and on Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/story.maker.conferenceDanielle can be reached via e-mail at danielle@worldorphans.org.See you on the path!Thank you to our Sponsor, Hardenbergh Insurance Group.  Visit their website at https://www.hig.net or reach out to them in the Delaware Valley at 856.489.9100.  They also operate in 42 states across the country.Finally, as Founder of Empower Kids, LLC, I love showcasing young talent.  I want to thank and recognize our musicians that take care of the musical Podcast Intro and Exit music.  Liam Graham is the guitarist, and Anna Yannessa, is a junior vocal major at the University of Missouri who plans on continuing studying voice performance at the graduate level.  She can be reached on Instagram @annyannessa19, on Twitter at @annayannessa and on FB at Anna Yannessa.For more information about my heart and mission visit me on social media: Facebook https://www.facebook.com/lisa.ozalisgraham and https://www.facebook.com/EmpowerKidsLLCTwitter https://twitter.com/EmpowerKidsLLCLinked In  https://twitter.com/EmpowerKidsLLCInstagram https://www.instagram.com/empowerkidsllc
Over the last 30 years, as owner of Tumbling Dice Entertainment with my love and husband, Kevin, I have met the most amazing women.  These women have faced many of life's challenges head-on, from abuse, to illness, to the loss of a loved one.  Through their faith, determination and pure grit, they have set out with intention to make a difference, through the formation of foundations and or taking on leadership roles in institutions they care deeply about.  They have all inspired me to be a better person and this series is my tribute to them. That being said, I have always wanted to celebrate these women and now I have the forum to do so.  These spin-off episodes of the podcast series Tell Me will be entitled "From Our Decks To Yours" and will highlight each of their stories and journeys, including the many Power of One people and moments that have shaped them into the role models, mentors and leaders they are today.  I was delighted to have the privilege of interviewing Tracey Heisler, Executive Director of CASA SHAW, for our very first kickoff episode. CASA SHAW provides quality court-based advocacy for abused and neglected children.  Children are referred to their program from a variety of sources including the juvenile court judges, attorneys, caseworkers, service providers, teachers and family members. Tracey knows first-hand from her own personal experience what children and their families experience from the failures and successes within the foster care system. She became involved with CASA as a volunteer in 1999 and fell in love with its child advocacy mission. Over the years, she has been boots on the ground in the organization, working her way up to her current position as Executive Director.  For more information about the program, please visit their website at https://casashaw.org and you can also e-mail Tracey at Tracey@casashaw.org.Walk with us as she shares her passion for children and CASA along with her very personal story of resilience, compassion and love.See you on the path!Note: This episode does touch on the subjects of child and sexual abuse.Thank you to our Sponsor, Hardenbergh Insurance Group.  For over 60 years, Hardenbergh has been raising the bar and setting the standard for what a good insurance enterprise is all about.  Hands-on customer service, knowledgable reps, amazing turnaround response time.  And they keep up with the ever-changing demands and changes in their industry.  Want a company that will take care of all of your business and family insurance needs?  Trust Hardenbergh.  Visit their website at https://www.hig.net or reach out to them in the Delaware Valley at 856.489.9100.  They also operate in 42 states across the country.Finally, as Founder of Empower Kids, LLC, I love showcasing young talent.  I want to thank and recognize our musicians that take care of the musical Podcast Intro and Exit music.  Liam Graham is the guitarist, and Anna Yannessa, is a junior vocal major at the University of Missouri who plans on continuing studying voice performance at the graduate level.  She can be reached on Instagram @annyannessa19, on Twitter at @annayannessa and on FB at Anna Yannessa.Tags: Episode is LivePublished: Aug. 07, 2020 @ 4PM EditUnpublishAdd a Transcript

In times of social distancing, how do we both retain and  maintain the relationships and the culture of positivity, mentorship and leadership we have worked so hard to cultivate and develop in our classrooms and beyond?Jimmy Casas believes it comes down to our Core Values.  The foundation that makes up the  core values upon which our relationships are based shouldn't change regardless of whether we are engaging with students and parents in a bricks and mortar building or on the sidewalk or driveways of our student's homes.  With a little resourcefulness, while one can't replace the other, both can be just as effective.In Chapter Five of Culturize, one of his six best-selling books, Jimmy Casas discusses what it means to be a merchant of hope. This is a teacher or administrator who supports, inspires, and believes in all students (especially those who are struggling to see the hope themselves).  Moreover, he says that we are all "directors of first impressions" and every one of us has something to contribute, no matter our age or background, to our students, peers and most of all, each other.Walk with us as he shares fascinating and touching personal stories of the human spirit...learn about those he has had the privilege and honor of mentoring, and those special Power of One Merchants of Hope who have paused along the way to mentor him. Jimmy Casas served twenty-two years as a school leader, including fourteen years as Principal at Bettendorf High School.
