Whether you are a Teacher or Librarian, a Home School Family, a Parent, an aspiring Writer, or simply a thoughtful person seeking to live a meaningful life… this page has something for you!

My highest hope as a storyteller is to lift hearts and minds, to help us discover our own inner power, and to raise our awareness of the true miracles that surround us.

That’s why I’ve filled this page with videos and articles meant to spark insights and inspiration. In addition to the sections below, check out this playlist of inspirational videos as well as the full TAB Video Collection on my YouTube channel. And enjoy these episodes from my podcast Magic & Mountains.

Enjoy your explorations! May you ultimately feel inspired to see your life as a story — a unique story that only you can write.

Beyond the materials you’ll find here, I invite you to visit our sister sites, the Gloria Barron Prize for Young Heroes and Inspiring Young Heroes (IYH). The Barron Prize celebrates outstanding young leaders of all backgrounds and descriptions. IYH is a video portal showcasing the incredible, inspiring stories of some of those young heroes.

A final note to Teachers, Librarians, and Parents: If you’re looking to share inspiration with others, my downloads page is full of absolutely FREE resources like discussion guides, printable bookmarks, activities guides, and more that you can use in your classroom, homeschool, or library. The Q&A, Articles & Blogs, Maps, and Videos all provide starting points from which to have meaningful discussions.

or poet, farmer or king —
is measured not by its length, but by

the power of its dreams.”

“This was the sound, Kate realized at last, of the tree itself breathing. The sound of life being exchanged for life, breath for breath.”
