[Original size] Ignite their Spark - generic for website.png

Ignite Their Spark is currently offered in Cherry Creek, Littleton, and Douglas County School Districts.


Part 1: With technology and being plugged in on a daily basis, it can be challenging for children to be able to communicate effectively and comfortably in person. This session will discuss the art of conversation and interaction with peers and adults. Learning body cues and key elements to make the conversation flow better will be discussed. We will reference the book How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie.


Part 2: We will discuss one new habit that the children can do to improve their quality of life. They will also learn how to create a habit tracker for their personal use. Each week we will discuss the new habit and the changes they notice. We will reference the books Atomic Habits by James Clear and The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg. We will discuss in depth what keystone habits are and which ones your child can implement on a daily basis.


Part 1: In this session we will be discussing daily goals, weekly goals, and yearly goals. Too often people never set or write down goals. People who WRITE their goals down and REVIEW and ADJUST them regularly are more likely to achieve them than people who just set goals.


Part 2: We will introduce one of the most powerful practices your child can do; journaling. We will also discuss the importance of adding gratitude to their journaling practice. This is a wonderful creative process in which to engage. Journaling will become a personalized experience for your child that will evolve over time.


Part 1:  We will discuss meditation and mindfulness. We will introduce two different meditation techniques: Silent unguided and the Love and Kindness Guided Meditation. We will cover some key health benefits of meditation and how to best utilize this incredibly powerful tool in your child's daily life. 

Part 2: What is Stoicism?  The understanding that you can't control what happens in your life, but you can control how you respond. Victor Frankel said it best, "Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is a power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and freedom." That space is where the magic happens. We will be referencing Ryan Holiday's The Daily Stoic:  366 Meditations on Wisdom, Perseverance, and the Art of Living.


Part 1: We will discuss the Joy of Giving and what that really means. Joy is the feeling one gets when one brings a little happiness into someone’s life. After a short discussion, the children will build goodie bags with our nonprofit Zips4kids ( Some of these bags will be taken home and kept in the family car so that the children can experience the joy of giving when passing the bags out. The remainder of the bags will be donated to the Volunteers of America Homeless Vet Program that we support.

Part 2: We will add a second habit to the habit tracker.


Part 1: The Importance of FAILURE. In this class we talk about redefining your relationship with failure and how it leads to growth. 


Part 1: In the final class we will have a conversation about money. We will discuss the difference between interest and compound interest and the importance of saving early. We will reference the book, The Richest Man In Babylon, by George Samuel Clason.


Part 2: We will review our habit tracker and go over any questions your child may have. We will take a look at the new habits formed and discuss what positive changes have been made in your child’s life.
