Hi. I'm new to the group, new to Shelfari too.
As author of The Twelve Gifts series, I explore and offer ways to recognize our own inner strength, beauty, courage, compassion, hope, joy, talent, imagination, reverence, wisdom, love, and faith and help others to see theirs, especially children.
My books are: The Twelve Gifts of Birth, The Twelve Gifts for Healing, The Twelve Gifts in Marriage, and The Thirteenth Gift (which is free on Amazon's Kindle the month of July ( http://www.amazon.com/The-Thirteenth-Gift-ebook/dp/B004S1VA1U/ref=tmm_kin_title_0?ie=UTF8&m=AG56TWVU5XWC2 ) It's the story of a mom seeking the theme of this group. If you read it, please consider posting a review. At www.charlenecostanzo.com and www.the twelve gifts of birth.com, I offer free resources for parents and teachers, such as a curriculum and coloring pages and activities to have ahha experiences about The Twelve Gifts. May you always recognize your own gifts and help others to see theirs! I'd love to hear from you.
