My Why

My Why

My childhood home was not a safe place to be. It was full of violence, anger and abuse. Fear was the predominant feeling that surrounded my life. Having the unconditional love of an animal became my saving grace. My cat Tiger was devoted to me and brought me solace. I spent as much time as possible outside to escape the horror inside our house. Nature inspired me to create stories about an alternative life in the forest. Raccoons, Bears, Squirrels, Rabbits and all other creatures were my best friends. We went on so many adventures together. When I had children of my own, story time was one of the most sacred things in my life. Giving them the sense that anything was possible if you were open to it ignited my passion for writing new stories to tell. I write to teach life lessons, and my belief that we need to care and heal our planet earth. As a child I found my healing in creating that space, I hope my books inspire you to find your own healing, so that your children can find comfort and love in your peace. I invite you to tell me your why, so that we can all learn how to heal and transform our environment.

Our Future Ambassadors

Our Future Ambassadors

“Children are great imitators. So give them something great to imitate.” Anonymous

It is my belief that by leading others with few words, we have an action call to great leadership. With that leadership, our children will take up our cause long after we are gone. Leading by example not only keeps us honest, but also inspired. Showing kindness to all, including our earth, has long been my focus. Following through on promises we make to each other is the catalyst for great accomplishments. I promised my children that I would strive to grow as human being, parent, spouse, employer, and friend for the rest of my life. A challenging promise, but one I intend on keeping.

How to inspire our children to find their voice and begin healing our planet is the mantra of Wee Imagine. My dream project is to create a platform that gives children and their families tools and means to accomplish anything they dream possible. Stay tuned for our first steps toward that dream project.

We would love to hear your dream projects.

What’s growing in your garden?

What’s growing in your garden?

Having grandchildren has been one of the greatest joys I have ever experienced. Watching them grow and develop gives me back that sense of wonder & curiosity about how the simple pleasures in life are not lost on children. Little boys digging, while their puppy lovingly watches can heal almost all that ails you. Look around your life and see what is in the garden of your life. What riches await you as you dig, plant and nurture what is important to you. I guarantee you that what will spring up and flower will bless you in ways you would never have expected. I look forward to your stories!

Taking Care of a Pet Teaches Life Lessons

Taking Care of a Pet Teaches Life Lessons

Animals have long been a way that children learn about love, security and responsibility. Taking care of a loved pet can teach many life lessons.

  • Pets reduce stress by creating a judgment free relationship with their companions
  • Pets teach comfort by always being there & willing to listen to their loved ones cares
  • Pets create a nurturing environment by allowing their owners to learn to care for them & getting love in return
  • Health is improved in both parties by the element of having a happy relationship.
  • Family bonds are strengthened by learning a pack mentality that
    animals create with their family.

Animals contribute to our planet in a variety of ways. Biodiversity is essential in our global community if we are to sustain a peaceful way of life. Insects, sea life, animals, plants and our environment contribute to our sustainability. You will find that if you focus on one aspect of our ecosystem, it is intricately attached to another facet.

Protecting and nurturing all facets of life on the planet will not only improve your health, and those around you, but also the lives of these mostly defenceless creatures. We all have a Roxy Raccoon in our backyard, or a Sally Squirrel living in a local tree.

What are you doing to protect and nurture them?

Teach the children in your life to be reporters who go out and find what is going on in their neighbourhood.

The Wee Imagine team is working on a digital magazine called “The Recycled Review” where kids will be reporting on ecosystem stories that inspire and captivate them. Look for it in the coming months.
