No Matter What, I Love You
My new book, No Matter What, I Love You - You Are My Sister, You Are My Brother, illustrates how love transcends everything, no matter what the circumstance. It shares messages of limitless and unconditional love, kindness and acceptance, encouraging children and adults alike to come together amid a world of uncertainty and divisiveness.
I'm a big believer that LOVE is the truth of who we are. Beyond politics, religion, race, nationality and finances, LOVE elevates and unites all of us! Now more than ever, we want our children to know how truly loved they are, no matter what is going on in their lives or in the world around them.
I want you to know this, too—and this powerful book helps to accomplish all of this and more. We need your support to share this timely and timeless story with children across the world!
Can a Book Change the World?
Can a book change the world? Well, maybe not a book. But we know what can...LOVE!
No Matter What, I Love You - You Are My Sister, You Are My Brother affirms the presence of light, love, goodness and humanity within every child and adult. The book touches on topics children encounter on the news or in person, including race, nationality, faith, culture, wealth, success, politics and gender, empowering readers to embrace their unique attributes and share their inner light with everyone around them.
I am thrilled and honored to be partnering with best-selling author and illustrator Trevor Romain, who has created a series of heartfelt and moving illustrations for the book, inspired by photos and stories from children from around the world. For more than 30 years, as a children’s champion and advocate, he’s shared his motivational and unique self-help messages with millions.
In addition to developing programming for PBS about young people and the challenges they face, Trevor has traveled the world with the USO to visit and inspire military children, as well as terminally ill children in hospitals nationwide. He’s written more than 50 books and his works have been published in 22 different languages. Please follow him on social media for a big dose of inspiration.
Trevor is based in Austin, TX these days, but originally from South Africa. Typically he spends the month of December at the Botshebelo Orphanage and Community. This is where he took several of the pictures of the children featured in the book. A portion of the proceeds from this book will be benefiting the incredible work being done there. You can find out more and donate at www.angel-strong.org.
Some of the illustrations have their own fun and epic stories behind them. Visit the Be The Light page here on the website to learn more about them, and how YOU too can Be the Light by sharing your story of being and Ambassador of Love!
Together Let’s Declare 2021 The Year of Love
We have all felt the fear, divisiveness, stress, trauma and tragedy of 2020, with people praying that this year just hurries up and comes to an end. The problem with this, is that we have a false sense that at the stroke of midnight, on December 31st, everything is somehow going to be different... the truth is, nothing's going to change unless we do! It’s up to US to CHOOSE LOVE!
As Albert Einstein shared, ”No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.” That's what we're aiming to do with this book—help parents, children, teachers and leaders tune in to the higher frequency of LOVE—the only thing that can truly erase the fear that is plaguing too many of our hearts and minds. Together, let's declare 2021 The Year of Love!
Take action by reading this book with your loved ones and sharing it with your communities and classrooms. The choice is ours: LOVE or FEAR! Fear has us caught up in the stress and struggle of politics, unrest and the global pandemic, but in LOVE’S presence, fear dissolves and we can begin to heal and transform, on an individual, familial, national and global level. We can also help dissipate and dissolve the fear that the Global Pandemic has conjured up, by creating our own Global Phenomena of Love!
