It Just Blooms is a story that will help children embrace the concept that they can all BLOOM in their own special way and in their own PERFECT time!


It Just Blooms is a story I wrote that was primarily INSPIRED by a conversation

I had with my beautiful 8-year-old daughter Ellie!


a beautiful phrase that I read a few years ago circulating on social media... 

"A flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it.

It just blooms."

What Others Say...


"This is the cutest children’s book! It teaches children that our differences are our strengths and that we shouldn’t compare ourselves to others. It also has the most beautiful illustrations! If you are a teacher or have children in your life, this is a must! Loved it!"

"The author creatively and masterfully teaches an impactful life-changing principle... that serves both children and adults in the reading of It Just Blooms. In a world where we are subject to messages coming from every direction, I encourage any parent who desires to help their child develop a greater sense of self, adequate personal confidence, and healthy relationships with others to make this special little read one that gets used, often...."

I AM: Two of the Most Powerful Words to Say

I AM...are two of the most powerful words you'll say!

Because the words that will follow them... 

will help to define YOU in a very special way!

Did you know that the two words I AM... invoke the highest frequency of manifestation? This book is filled with positive affirmations because these words are more potent and powerful than we realize! The thoughts we think and the words we speak send powerful energy through us; which has an impact on our minds, and our physical bodies. As children repeat these affirmations out loud and begin to also feel these positive emotions in their bodies, they begin to understand that their own inner strength begins with the words I AM!

Gracie's Powerful Day

As she stepped up to bat, she thought to herself, “I CAN do this. I AM going to hit this ball.”...

The pitch came in and she swung again, but this time she heard the loud crack as her bat hit the ball. She watched the ball go soaring high up into the air....

Gracies's Powerful Day provides an easy way for children to learn about the power their own thoughts have to change their lives! They learn about the power of pause and how they can use positive actions to step into being an empowered creator. They learn the important lesson that they will have days that may not go exactly as planned, but everything is still going to be okay! These are mindfulness skills that will last them a lifetime!
