Greetings from the Editor:

A Call for Group Service, The Seed Thought Project

You might recall my sharing about how a special purpose found me about three years ago.  My book, Affirm Your Self Day by Day, is now in the hands of many women prisoners and inspiring them to improve their lives. This book is now out of print. The updated version is currently an e-book titled Seed Thoughts for Loving Yourself.

Are you looking for ways to impact the world positively? Would you like to join a team, volunteering your talents and interests to publish this new book? Some of the needs for the Seed Thought Project are a graphic artist to format the book and cover, proof readers, people to mail books and answer letters, money or stamps for shipping, contacts for publishing economically, ideas to improve and expand. Volunteers will have the opportunity to buy books at a high discount for personal use or to donate to favorite charities, such as church groups or women's shelters. If you are interested please contact me.

Fortunate Blessings,



Criticism Does Not Have to Get You Down

By Suzanne E. Harrill        

Are you overly sensitive to criticism? Are you a good critic yourself? It goes both ways usually. Criticism experienced from others almost, if not always has a component of projection on the other person’s part.

Questions & Answers

Question: Hi Suzanne

I wonder if you have any thoughts about babies and the practice of controlled crying. My little granddaughter Sophia is now 4 months old. She has been difficult to settle from the word go.  She is a poor sleeper (except at night) and often appears to cry for no apparent reason.  She seems not often relaxed.

"Is it possible to emotionally 'harm' or deprive a small baby by leaving them to cry and scream themselves into a state of physical despair?"

Take Charge Of Your Finances, Simplify Your Life

Developing a lifestyle that works for you

 By Ute Lawrence     

There is much to be said for ordering our physical environments and creating supportive, inspiring spaces. Being surrounded by “stuff” we no longer need can weigh heavily on our ability to focus.

As I discussed in my previous column, it’s important to clear our homes and offices so we can build a rock-solid foundation, or root system, to help facilitate growth. It gives us a new perspective and the freedom to welcome new things into our lives. Part of this process involves taking a deep look at our financial environment. Too many people are burdened by financial commitments and lifestyles they hang on to for the wrong reasons. If you lose sleep over financial worries, a time-out is required to get them in a state of repair, or at least develop a plan to do so...

Spiritual Intelligence & Leadership

by Cindy Wigglesworth           

Research is finally validating what many of us knew all along – that there is more to great leaders than brains.  What research is now validating is that great leaders need to use their hearts and souls, as well as their minds!  Our “Intelligence Quotient” or “IQ” is generally thought of as our linear, analytical intelligence.  Initially it was expected that IQ would be a strong predictor of success in careers.  In fact, it has turned out to be a weak predictor of success.  IQ appears to be related to minimum standards to enter a given a profession.  But once you have chosen your career, what actually leads to success is far more complicated...
