tons lifted off my chest"
just want to take a moment to thank you from the very
bottom of my heart. I really do not know exactly how to
start. I was blown away by your presentation this weekend.
When Crystal stated at the beginning of the workshop that
we were about to be part of history. I did not know how
true that statement would be for me!
a teenage child as a single parent is astronomical, especially
for me, someone who had this child as teenager herself.
I have been faced with growing as a child with a child,
so as I have had to teach in the same moment, I have had
to learn. So, needless to say, I have had my hands full
and have not always hit the mark in parenting. However,
I promised myself a long time ago that I would not be
closed minded as a parent and vowed, "I'm not going
to make my child do what my mother made me do". Yet,
neither was I going to be a book scholar on parental resources.
I did not believe that a book could make me a wonder parent,
and felt that most "observations" or "analysis"
came from stiff neck psychologist who were not parents
of ordinary kids or had some boarding school or nanny
tried everything from advice from my elders, family, and
associates (advice that included corporal punishment)
to just "ignoring it & it will go away".
The only thing that I found sustaining was prayer. Prayers
for a better solution. Prayers that my son (Jayvan) and
I would not BOTH end up in the legal system. Prayers believing
and knowing that because my child had been diagnosed in
elementary school with ADHD, he was NOT that kind of child.
Yes, he was diagnosed in the second grade with this "epidemic".
We did the medicine to no avail. Medically, I know that
I am probably considered uncooperative as a parent, but
I know my child. I know he is not limited or going to
be bound by a diagnosis. It is hard praying and not seeing
immediate manifestation, but I know faith without works
is dead. I am glad my faith was still working October
1, 2004 when I was informed about your workshop.
did not know or understand the program completely when
I was briefed about it, but I felt something deep in me
that ignited my spirit. Immediately, I started informing
others, without questions. That next day, at the workshop,
I was highly impressed an in total awe. I could not believe
all the research that you had taken upon yourself so that
you may better yourself as a parent to your children.
You had SO MUCH information THAT MADE SENSE!!!! The way
you related history with today's world was amazing. I
was very excited to see how this program is like a 4 in
1 program that allows parents to teach children many aspects
of life in their own little world. Your presentation was
so easy to understand, yet towards the end I was somewhat
leery about the program working with my child since your
experiment was implemented with your children at a young
age. I still had not given up hope. I knew it had to be
God for me to win the door prize. God was letting me know
that the manifestation had arrived.
I took the program home and read through your booklet.
I was very relieved to find out how easy it was to understand.
It was like I had the workshop presentation right in my
hand, but I would recommend anyone to attend the workshop
FIRST, because you just have such a way with reaching
people where they are and getting them interested in what
you have to say. As I stated earlier, I was very pleased
with knowing that I had all I needed in the package and
that although you had set the guidelines, it was the parents’
decision as to what would be the focus areas. Still wondering
how Jayvan would take to this new approach, I introduced
the program to him the following evening. I explained
to him that this program will show and help him deal with
finances. He accepted the concept with not much to say.
knowing what was to come of "this new thing"
and not following the traditional thing that I learned
over the years, I was concerned that I had gotten my hope
up for nothing. I was COMPLETELY SHOCKED that following
morning when I saw that my child, the one who had to be
told several different times to get up, get ready, clean
up, etc. He had awakened independently, got himself ready
without having to be coached...and had made his bed...something
that I had requested many MANY...MANY times before with
no success. I have never felt as good as I have about
my child and MYSELF as I have for the past two days. I
have NEVER had as peaceful of a morning as I have had
for the past two mornings. It is no lie or embellishment
when I say it was as if someone had lift 2000 tons off
of my chest. It literally felt as though a physical weight
had been lifted off of my chest. I talked about it all
that day. It was like someone had crashed my child’s
memory and installed a new one. I felt as though my morning
had finally arrived as it does in the movies when there
has been a nightmare that evening and morning arrives
at the end with no reminisce of the prior events. These
have been the BEST TWO days. The lessons that he has learned
as an up & coming adult, and that I have learned as
a parent have been PRICELESS. I believe that I have entered
abundant parenting. This program has shown me there really
is abundance in parenting in areas that I would never
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
May you be richly blessed with the gift God has given
you. I firmly believe that you will help reshape this
nation one family at a time.
