I am passionate about promoting personal growth for both children and parents, and empowering parents with tools to walk a spiritual path with practical feet. In 2011 I co-created Enable Me To Grow (, a website dedicated to sharing resources for Bahá’í families, and soon after recorded two albums of prayers and quotations from the Writings called “At First Light.” In 2013, I created Moments A Day ( to share inspiration for families of all backgrounds to build character and make a difference in their communities. I have published ebooks, journals, storybooks, and digital workshops on the themes of character education, personal growth, and positive parenting, and presented my work on radio, podcasts, video summits, live panels, and workshops in person and online, as well as in classrooms and libraries. I currently serve as the Parenting Section Coordinator and faculty for several parenting courses offered by the Wilmette Institute.
