Why are stories important? How have they shaped our thinking and view of the world? Come follow my stories and see what we have in common. Ducks In My Pool, is about a family of ducks who chose our backyard as a safe place to build their nest. For over ten years ducklings have hatched and swam in our pool. I realized God gave me a metaphor through the ducks to show His love and safety as I trust in Him.

Happy Earth Day 2017
Our planet is a beautiful place to live. April 22 2017 was a glorious day to celebrate Earth Day. My first grade students made Earth Day Posters to celebrate!!!
I was able to go outside in my backyard to enjoy bluejays, cardinals, and squirrels.
The Dallas area had a horrible hailstorm the night before. Scientists say a rise in temperature of one degree can cause severe weather changes.
I attended a gala gathering of filmmakers called EarthxFilm to showcase films and emerging media that explore conservation, climate change, and the environment.
The gala was at the Butterfly House Discovery Gardens.
Insects were watching in their glass houses. "What is this special event?" they wondered.
EarthxFilm achieve their goals by partnering with top environmental, film and entertainment organizations across the globe.
EarthxFilm's Mission is to turn awareness into action, through art and media.
"What action should we take?'asked the butterflies and beetles.
We should reduce, reuse and recycle and stop using so much fossil fuels.
It takes a global commitment to accomplish the goals. Happy Earth Day, a time to reflect.
