Welcome

Charlene photoHi, and thank you for visiting.

This is a place to come for inspiration and ideas about how we can nurture the gifts in children and in ourselves. We are all born with a wealth of inner resources to help us live well.  Among these resources are strength, beauty, courage, compassion, hope, joy, talent, imagination, reverence, wisdom, love, and faith. When these gifts are nurtured, they become more powerful. On this site you can explore some ways to better appreciate these gifts in yourself; reflect them to others; teach them to children; and use them to face challenges, enrich every area of your life, and make the world a healthier place.

The tools you’ll find here are built on the foundation of The Twelve Gifts of Birth book,¬†which contains a universal message for children and people of all ages, cultures, and creeds about human dignity, worthiness, and the gifts we share.

Here is an example of what you will find in WAYS TO NURTURE.

Charlene Costanzo
