In 2014 my soulmate, Amy, was diagnosed with cancer. It felt like a vine wrapped itself around our necks choking us. Scared and confused, our lives were like dry cracked earth. Operations, chemotherapy, and doctors appointments flooded our lives. Cancer served as a pest destroying our garden.
One day, with the sunrise visiting through the kitchen window, I walked to the window, looked down upon the dry cracked soil, called for Amy and our two daughters Karis and Lily, pointed down at that patch of earth, and said, “Let’s cultivate a garden there. Each morning we wake up and look out of this window the garden will remind us that we’ve chosen to focus on growth.” After two days we planted a garden.
As we tended the garden, I noticed the garden teaches many great lessons about life. The more I learned about these lessons the more I was drawn to share them with you through growth based curricula.
This website is designed to offer curriculum for stressed out classroom teachers. For the life of our work, we have chosen to focus our attention on educational growth products (curricula) and services (coaching & speaking).
