Shawn and I talked about Gratitude and Hope and changing your attitude and being unperturbed and not upset about life when things don’t go the way you wanted them to. Things didn’t go the way we wanted when we started recording this video. We had no volume at first and didn’t even know it until a viewer told us that there was no sound! We could have given up. We had already talked for 20 minutes! But we persevered, and our second video was better than the first!
We talked about how Gratitude and Hope are related. And lots of other good stuff!
You CAN be an artist, even if past experience has told you otherwise. The secret is – PASTELS! I have never been good at drawing or painting or pretty much anything artsy or craftsy. But I picked up some chalk pastels and tried some of the tutorials that Nana did on www.chalkpastel.com, and I became an artist! Since then I have tried many of her projects, and I have been happy with the results of my work. For the first time ever!
Join Nana’s Clubhouse Membership and start painting with pastel chalk. Find your inner artist that has been hiding, or indulge your already known artistic side right along with your children as they explore the fun and satisfaction of working with pastels.

Mother and Child
"Oh that God would give every mother a vision of the glory and splendor of the work that is given to her when a babe is placed in her bosom to be nursed and trained! Could she have but one glimpse in to the future of that life as it reaches on into eternity; could she look into its soul to see its possibilities; could she be made to understand her own personal responsibility for the training of this child, for the development of its life, and for its destiny,--she would see that in all God's world there is no other work so noble and so worthy of her best powers, and she would commit to no other's hands the sacred and holy trust given to her." -JR Miller
