You Can't Steal My Smile!
Soulful Stories that Bloom in the Desert
I Want Prickles Too!
Anton is frustrated because he wants to have prickles like his friend Sag the Smart Saguaro. Sag responds by going on a journey in the desert, letting his quirky friends do the talking. Anton discovers how amazing everyone is as they are, including himself.
Modeling & Teaching Resilience
How do children know they are resilient and can handle the trials of life? Especially in a culture where victimhood is purported as heroic. Today’s young adults have been raised to believe they are fragile. Life includes “10,000 Joys and 10,000 Sorrows,” Buddha said. We must prepare children for life not by overly protecting and indulging, but by modeling and teaching them to know they are resilient and have the power to receive all life brings.
We can create empowered children through the playful and profound stories of Sag the Saguaro and his desert friends. Resilience appears as they process the many fleeting feelings they experience in a day, in a healthy way.
Children need to know they have been designed by the Supreme Creator to have a resilient nature within, to believe in themselves and their own power and love, believe in their Soul, no matter what they may feel or is going on in the world around them…nothing can steal their smile!
