BIG Feelings

"You are the sky. Everything else - it's just the weather."

— Pema Chödrön

How it came to be

There were so many times where this teaching from Pema Chödrön helped me in tough moments. I shared this idea with a 6-year-old son, Julian, to help him to understand early in life that we may feel our feelings, but we are not our feelings. He immediately loved that and more ideas started to grow.

“What if the sky forgot it was the sky, Mama? What would happen then?”

It's time to write our book, Mama

In the early morning on the day after Julian’s 7th birthday, he ran into my bedroom and excitedly said, “Mama, it’s time to write our book! It’s time, Mama.”

He had a sparkle in his eyes. While I grabbed some coffee to help me keep up, he sat down and started crafting little toys to go with the book. We met in the sunroom and I started to type the story we had been creating together for almost a year. The inspired words flowed from his mind and this sweet story was written within an hour.

Since then, Julian has worked on bringing his words to life through his illustrations. The love is absolutely in the details! During this process, Julian learned how to digitize his drawings and create page layouts with his dad. As a coloring book, you’ll be able to bring the story to life in your own special way.

Our prayer is that this story always reminds you to let go of the feelings and remember that YOU are the sky!

Your support helps fund our homeschool journey

Since writing this book, Julian, like most kids is interested by so many of life's wonders. Homeschooled along with his twin bothers, Jaiah (left) and Jozi (right), Julian has dreams of traveling to explore distant places like the pyramids of Egypt, the castles of England and the bioluminescent bays of Puerto Rico. The sky is the limit and these kids are ready to fly!

By purchasing this book, you are helping to support those dreams and goals for our family.
