By Nancy Alhabashi I was always a dreamer since I was a little girl. Far East by river Jordan I grew older loving to write and paint. By age 15 I moved to the United States. It was nothing but a hobby. Not till 2007 when I had to watch my dear father die from stomach cancer, I started painting more and more. I could not grief him enough because I had to put a smile on my face for my two 6 months old twin girls and 18-month-old son. So every night when I put them to sleep I would paint for hours. Only 3 months later I was myself diagnosed with 6 cm mass in my right lung. (Choriocarsinoma) .  . I spent almost 2 years partially watching my kids grow older. Between three surgeries and four long Chemo sessions I would go to my basement and paint. I poured on canvas all kind feelings. (Hope, sad, love, grief…Etc. I finally won the battle. Although cancer is never good news but in my case it was I knew what I wanted to do with. I have contacted Aurora Theatre and did my first solo exhibit there. It was a very successful solo exhibit with an outcome of seven pieces sold which was the first in the Theatre history. I am very blessed to be given another chance to stay round for my wonderful children (Hisham, Razanne, and Rowanne), and loving husband (Hashem Abuaisheh). Artist Statement: I believe in the power of colors. Yes you can stir feelings with only colors. I use several layers to create texture and depth. I am very daring with putting colors together. I  mix impressionism with abstract. Good art is what stirs feelings and touches your heart. I am still learning each day about myself through painting and writing. Art in all of its forms is a way of healing physically and mentally. Love is the most powerful feeling that can change lives. I paint and write about love in a very soft yet strong way. Most of my work is dreamy and somewhere else out of this world. About My Book  Soul Whispers : As much...

A More Focused, Confident, Happier, Healthier Child!

A More Focused, Confident, Happier, Healthier Child!

Oct 25, 2012

By: Larry Bullard The # 1 Role Of Parenting- According to many child physiologists the #1, top of the list, highest priority role of parents is to “Nurture High Self-Esteem in their Children.” We must nurture high self-esteem to ensure that our kids grow up with a confident belief in themselves. You can nurture high self-esteem in many ways… I will not go too far into all the ways, but here are a few: Avoid Destructive criticism, Praise children and make them feel important, Tell them everyday how much you love them, Give them 12 hugs a day, and, most importantly, Get them involved in programs that cause them to feel like winners. All Gwinnett County kids can benefit from having structured activity, positive role models, short and long term goals, quality friendships, a positive outlet for their energy, and an excellent environment to learn character qualities that will enhance their performance at school, at home, and in other sports.  These are some of the perks of attending a top notch Martial-Arts School.   My name is Larry Bullard and I am the owner of one of the most successful martial-arts schools in the Lawrenceville area, Appalachian Karate Academy Atlanta. For more than 40 years I’ve been nurturing children like yours with character building tools found only in martial-arts. No other sport can match them. I have consulted with over 8,000 Parents and many of them share the same concerns and priorities for their children. Parents talk about the importance of positive influences, organized activity, developing discipline and confidence, goal-setting, and physical exercise.  I’m happy to report that many parents also found that training atThe Appalachian Karate Academy Atlanta can accomplish all these objectives. Your child’s Biggest Challenge comes from: Their Fears and Self-Doubts.  And it’s this limited way of thinking that is all around them that holds them back more than anything.  “I’m not as good as John.”  “I never get what the teacher is saying.” “Other kids are getting all the breaks.” “How come I can’t be as popular as Jane.” “ I’m not good at this, it’s just not for me.” “How come that kid keeps picking on me?” The list goes on and on.  The question is: How can your child defend themselves...
