The Baby Sleep Project

I would like to share with everyone a project that was started by one of our students and his mom.  It is called the Baby Sleep Project.  The story is moving, the results amazing and the help that we can give will help others have the same miraculous results. 

I will not tell you the story here, but encourage you to read it for yourself.  I will tell you that it is about a baby born pre-mature, with half of a heart.  The work done on him by the doctors was just unbelievable.  The complimentary work continued by his parents though may have been the difference in his survival. 

The Baby Sleep Project

The Baby Sleep Project is about helping other babies have the same recovery as this story.  With the blessing of the doctors and belief by them that this work done was contributory to his regaining his strength and life, I encourage you to look at this project.  We are trying to reach a goal prior to our young man’s 11th birthday.  


Facing the future

In my study of peace there is a young man that has stood out in his ability to put into words very simply, life lessons that takes many of us years to understand.  His name is Mattie Stepanek.  Now while he is no longer here with us today, his words and spirit is still having an affect on all who read his poetry.  In a new piece of work that I am using to learn peace, Mattie is noted as a peacemaker.
Next week I will be posting about his life.  In the mean time enjoy this poem he wrote that I believe describes how I am trying to live my life.  To see this new site please go to the Learn Peace website.

Facing the Future

Every journey begins
With but a small step.
And every day is a chance
For a new, small step
In the right direction.
Just follow your Heartsong.
