The Candle-Lighter Award and the Sunshine Award

Thank you very much to www.living4bliss.wordpress.com for presenting me with the Candle-Lighter Award and the Sunshine Award.  I truly appreciate the recognition!

Both of these awards are for a blog or post that is positive and brings light into the world.

I started this “Good News” blog in July 2010 because I was tired of and disgusted by all the negative news and information.  I wanted to give people positive news and information.  I’m having a great time looking for, receiving, and posting these pieces!  Stay tuned!!

RULES for the Candle-Lighter Award

Whenever you see a blog or post you think brightens the world, give the blogger the Candle-Lighter Award.

Recipients can accept or decline. What does the recipient have to do?  Simply accept and nothing more!  You can paste this image on your blog, if you wish, and you are done!  If you wish to honor someone else with a Candle, pass it on, anytime and as many times and to as many people as you wish.

Come on and help me brighten up all our lives!

TODAY’S BLOG

It’s Wednesday!!  Time for “Excerpts From My Books.”

THE VISION:  Telling Kids That They Can Make the World a Better Place

~ Joyce Fields

Foreword #1 was written by Keisha L. Glenn, Esq., Assistant Prosecuting Attorney, Wayne County, Michigan, who says that. . .

The Vision is crafted in such a way that it is the perfect tool for young children to learn about the value of education and for African-American children to briefly witness the struggles of their ancestors in obtaining an education.

The worksheets in the book are a wonderful way to get children to recognize, think about, and discuss the opportunities available to them both educationally and socially.  Having the children create goals and sign contracts is a wonderful idea to stimulate enthusiasm and create a sense of accomplishment.

As a juvenile court prosecutor, I saw first-hand how many kids took for granted the opportunities they had to get an education.  I think every classroom and courtroom dealing with young children should make The Vision required reading.”

    I just ordered 3 of your e-books…the one you suggested about letting go of that man you love and one about the dogs and the serenity one. My husband and my dog are a great source of joy in my life! As for serentiy…a work in progress! 😉 I will print out these books to show the women I teach at the correctional facility. I try to show them, blogs, e-books, self-publishing…anything that I can that might inspire them to use writing as a “tool of process” in their lives. I have so enjoyed your comments on my blog and your consistant good will. Sending you love and hugs this day and as always, thanks for a great post!
