SORT BY Relevancy
Join me as I take a trip Sylvan Hills Middle School after an emergency call from my son about having his hair yanked and pulled AGAIN! and thrown into tables and into rooms. When I asked Ms. Dees if it was protocol to abuse the students this way, she denied doing what I heard her doing which was agitating the situation WHILE I was on the phone with him. Only to later hang admit that she did. FINALLY I get to put them on BLAST on SPOT! AND YOU GET TO HEAR IT!
ENVISION THIS: Reaching out to young people to inspire them to read, write, and create.
Debbie Hilbish is with us to share her vision, passion and mission to inspire students to read, write and create. She reaches out to as many people as possible to share what they do at Student Author Visits, Inc. (SAVI) founded by Larry James, a 70+ great grandfather, artist, writer of music and author of children’s books. Debbie became Chairperson and Secretary at SAVI after retiring from a career with the United States Post Office, publishing books of her poetry, and hosting eight-week authors’ fairs at The Reader’s Oasis book store in Quartzsite AZ.
SAVI started because “America’s economy began to fail in 2007 and millions of citizens are still struggling, plus the fact that the income disparity gap in our country has widened every year for at least the last twenty years has brought us to the point where it’s impossible for many parents to purchase books for their children.” It is a free program provided to elementary fourth grade classes and boys and girls clubs in selected areas. At the beginning of each visit, Larry introduces himself and thanks the students for inviting him. He reads the first chapter of one of the chapter books he has written and illustrated. The children than get to listen to one of the age appropriate songs on our music cd. The question and answer segment is next. Children ask good questions like: How do you write, illustrate, or publish a book? The program usually last about an hour. At the end of our visit each student receives a FREE SAVI PACK which consists of: 1 copy of the signed chapter book, 1 CD with 8 (eight) age appropriate songs, and a BOOKWORM BUDDY BUTTON.

Life wants each of us to know and express the magnificence within ourselves, and to honor that magnificence in each other.
Dr. Shani Fox’s passion for helping survivors reclaim an extraordinary life after cancer came as a “calling” in mid-life. The calling followed her observation that too many survivors, after completing acute cancer treatment, are left feeling unwell, unsupported and alone, wondering who to turn to that understands their needs.
Dr. Shani’s mission is that every survivor transition from acute treatment directly into loving, expert care aimed at supporting complete recovery, building resilience to future disease, and leveraging the hard-won wisdom of the cancer experience to create a life of peace and deep fulfillment.
Through her exquisite gifts of compassion and insights as physician and a life mastery coach, she is particularly skilled at helping patients overcome their fear of cancer recurrence, which may affect up to 96 percent of survivors.
Prompted by her father’s death in 2001, Dr. Shani, as she prefers to be called, discovered she wanted to make a direct, positive difference in the lives of others, as her dad had so lovingly modeled. Although her father died from cancer, it was how he lived for “28 bonus years” following a near-fatal car accident when Dr. Shani was 15 that most impacted her.
“With the understanding of life’s fragility tha t only such an experience can bring, he lived the remainder of his days to the fullest,” Dr. Shani shares. “He didn’t waste time or words. Every human interaction was sacred to him, and he spent every moment he could enjoying his family, leaving a legacy of happy memories to those who loved him.”
