There is a Chinese
proverb that says: "If there is light in the soul,
there is beauty in the person; If there is beauty in the
person, there will be harmony in the home; If there is harmony
in the home, there is peace in the heart."
May your life be
filled with beauty; may your heart be filled with peace
and together we will rise and be respectful for the identity and dignity of all creation. And together we will strive
toward a world free of fear and hatred. Confucius said it
so poignantly, "Our greatest glory is not in never
failing but in rising every time we fail."
Living History (formerly Storyliving) ~ in 1991,
Josh teamed up with the founder of Story Living,
Rändi Douglas. Living History is an interactive educational
outreach program. The purpose is to teach history and social
studies using kinesthetic, multiple intelligence activities
and as Josh says, "It is where you become the people you
are learning about and then when you become emotionally
involved, you never forget." And all this happens in the
classroom with music, imagination and role-playing. Sessions
are held in schools from third grade and up, universities,
churches, temples, community centers and at seminars."I hear and I forget ~ I see and I remember ~
I do and I understand" Contact for information/booking.
