A slingshot is the perfect metaphor to describe what I feel like at this exact moment. I have felt this accelerated pull of launching this piece of my heart for a while now. Courage was the missing gravitational push that I needed to officially “sling” and I thank God HE gave me the strength.

My passion has always been in early childhood development and children’s literature. I am hoping that the slingshot of this blog causes a ripple effect in the community of motherhood and parenting. I always thought I would make a difference in this world by working with children in a classroom setting.

I made it my goal to help a child unlock his/her potential treasures. Through becoming a mother I had a sudden realization. There can be a greater impact in a child’s life if I can reach other moms and help guide them to teach their little ones at home from early on.

You see mommies, when a child is born, it is pivotal to understand that YOU hold an invaluable piece of the future in your hands. A potential treasure to this world. As a parent YOU have the power and responsibility to shape and nurture their existence since the very beginning. YOU are their first teacher in life.

Cheers to raising incredible human beings that will be a light in this world!
