Welcome to my site. I am a writer, educator and speaker. As the mother of two life-long vegan (grown-up) children, I'd love to share with you what our family has learned on our journey to raise thoughtful, healthy, kind, think-for-themselves children, who are committed to doing their part to make the world a better place.
I wrote my first book, Compassionate Souls -- Raising the Next Generation to Change the World, to bring together and explain the three pillars I considered most important to facilitating health (both physical and emotional) in our family: Bowen Family System's Theory, Attachment Parenting and Veganism.
My second book, Get Off Gluten, explains how and why our family got off gluten plus contains all the recipes I created to help us make that transition. A video of me speaking on the subject of gluten is HERE, and contains information you probably have not heard before.
Sign up for my free emailed monthly newsletter, The FEAST LAWRENCE NEWS (Food Enlightenment And Sustainability Teachings) which comes out several times each month to inform you of news, research and ideas that I consider important or interesting, plus lets you know when I have put something new up on my blog. Email me from this page if you would like to be added to my email list.
