Give Thanks Everyday

Is everyday Thanksgiving at your house?     Do songs of joy and praise roll off your lips first thing in the morning? Any morning? Every morning? Or might a touch of overwhelm meet you when you wake up?   During November and December in America, we emphasize gratefulness, family connections, and good cheer to all. Ideally, those values we hold near and dear to us on a daily basis, not just holiday times.   It’s easy to have way too much to do during this season.

Two years later not much progress


5 Ways to Help Your Dyslexic Child Eat Better

Diet plays a pivotal role in reversing dyslexia. To give your child the greatest chance of success, it’s crucial that his or her diet is full of healthy, nutritious food that will provide the building blocks of the brain. Eating better is easy if you know what to do—here’s how. Eliminate sugar for at least two months. Sugar is a nutritionally empty food, and it can cause a host of health problems.
