For years I have worked as a self-funded peace educator and journalist while also working full-time as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. My Ph.D. is in Education. I have written books, produced short documentary videos and interviews on my video hosting site www.earthfamily.tv for adults and children. My new ebook, "Conceiving a Peaceful World" is a solutions-focused map for creating peace with social justice on earth. How we can create a society that actually supports the development of healthy families, communities, and environments for ALL people. How can we create peaceful transitions to a society that is economically, environmentally, and democratically sustainable and uncorruptible? My book shares stories and interviews of exceptional women reveal leadership skills to transform our world, along with poetry and art. You can find my book at: www.womenswisdom.tv In my blog and YouTube sites I share my passion for healthy families and communities with social justice for all people through solution-focused down-to-earth information and interviews. I am grateful for the chance to share this journey with you and I appreciate your interest in learning about my work and the work of generations of leaders and peacemakers from diverse backgrounds. It will take all of us working together to create a better world! As a realist, I believe that peace on earth is necessary for the survival of our earth--and that it will take massive changes to make it happen. As a peacemaker, I believe those changes can happen through peaceful transitions among collaborating neighbors when we choose to learn, listen, and cooperate!
