Little Angels - Amazing Series for Pre-School Aged Children

As a parent, I'm always on the look out for hidden dangers that I should shield my son from. Things that would or could damage his sense of self or purpose. The media is one outlet I've been very careful with, as my son has matured.

KLOVE is usually on where we're in the car. When it comes to movies and television, we're very selective in what we watch. That being said we've not put him in a bubble. He's aware of the good and bad things that happen in this world, but we've just done what we can to keep his innocence around as long as possible.

Most of the kids in today's world are growing up too fast, and I want better for my child.

Have I been on my soapbox enough here? All this is leading to a point, I promise.

I recently became aware of Roma Downey's newest project, 'Little Angels' and was so happy to see someone of her caliber promote such a worthy series. You may remember Ms. Downey from her work as 'Monica' on Touched by an Angel, a popular television series.

Little Angels
is an animated DVD series that promotes Biblical truths as well as educational applications. Your pre-school aged children will not only learn the basic building blocks of letters, numbers, & animals, but they will get to delve into exciting Bible stories in the process.

The premise is about 8 little angels, which are painted on a ceiling, coming to life to watch over two children, Alex and Zoe. They not only watch over Alex and Zoe but they bring the children a whole new view and understanding of what goes on around them and how God fits into it.

The angels teach Alex and Zoe to be responsible, have self control, and encourage good behavior. 'Little Angels' brings imagination, music, humor and art into the equation to make learning fun.

My son, who's now 8, rolled his eyes when he saw what I was watching (he's too big for baby stuff). However he kept sneaking around the corner to watch. These little angels and their humor sucked him into their world, and before I knew it he was also laughing at their jokes. As I turned to look over my shoulder, he'd pretend to not watch and turn away. I counted ... my son came in 5 times to sneak a peek at this DVD. You know it has to be good if it can captivate such a big kid!

How exciting that there is something available that will be expanding our children's spiritual knowledge as well as their educational base... And how refreshing that this will be stimulating their minds with Bible foundations. I only wish I had access to this series for my child a few years ago. I can only imagine the conversations that will come from your child watching 'Little Angels'. It's not just a great learning tool, but a wonderful communication tool for you as a parent.

Roma Downey does a wonderful job producing this series. She's bringing the message of God's love to our children in a creative and captivating way. I highly encourage you to visit her website for the DVD series.

Undercover Boss Eye Opener

This past week I watched Undercover Boss, which featured Retro Fitness and one employee in particular, who got fired.  Normally Undercover Boss shows a few employees, with great stories and good work ethic, and sometimes there may be a few problem employees.

In this last issue, it seems all anyone is talking about is that one problem employee, named Jacqueline, who was a shining example of what bad attitudes are really about, and was about as bad as they come.

Jacqueline, who on the outside, seemed like a clean cut decent person until she opened her mouth to speak.  And this girl wasn't just rude ... she was abusive to everyone around her. 

As if it wasn't bad enough that she was completely unprofessional and had no compassion for anyone around her at work ... she then turned into the flippant, defensive, careless girl, who talked back to the CEO of the company when he tried to explain his grievances with her.  She passionately denied anything he was trying to explain to her, …

Brian Naranjo - A Celebrated Man

It's Saturday...

It's Saturday, and at this very moment a few hundred miles north of me, my friend is grieving the loss of her husband.

It's Saturday and this week has felt like an eternity.  I've moved through this week with such a heavy heart.

And I feel guilty for being trapped in this fog of sorrow, as I'm not the one who lost my life long partner of over 20 years. I'm not the one who just got my husband back from Afghanistan, only to lose him to an unexpected death.

I can not fathom how my friend is coping, walking step by step through the process of burying her soul mate at the tender young age of 39.

Brian Naranjo would have been 40 years old on February 29th, 2012. Brian Naranjo would have his whole life ahead of him.  He would have been celebrating a marquis year, when you're supposed to reflect on where you've come and what you have left to do. 

In reading his Facebook wall, as I'm inexplicably drawn to it, I've read the many memo…

No, Dude! I Really Don't Want to See That!

Yesterday was one for the books ... 
I was in a meeting with a sales manager at a car dealership, which was almost coming to a close when someone from the lobby alerted the manager that someone had driven up on the lot.  From the look on his face, I could tell that whoever this person was - was not exactly welcome.
He promptly apologized and excused himself so that he could deal with the person we'll call 'Dude'.  Within seconds I heard Dude and could tell that he was high maintenance from the commotion in the lobby.  He had not only shown up in a test drive truck but had a ton of his belongings inside and a trailer hitched to the back.
Patiently, I waited inside hoping that whatever went down wouldn't be a 'situation' as the energy felt in the dealership was a bit heightened.
A few minutes later, the manager returned to process a paperwork for Dude when Dude stepped into the inner office for a quick question.  I smelled him before I saw him as smoke rolled in…
