Featured Spiritual Story:
The Star Thrower

One day, a man was walking along the shore. As he looked down the beach, he saw a young person reaching down to the sand, picking up something and very gently throwing it back into the sea. As he got closer, he called out, "Good morning! What are you doing?"

The young person paused, looked up and replied, "Throwing starfish into the sea."

Featured Spiritual Parable:
Children and Prayers

A protestant priest, having started a family, no longer had any peace for his prayers. One night, when he knelt down, he was disturbed by the children in the living room.

"Have the children keep quiet!" he shouted.

His startled wife obeyed. Thereafter, whenever the priest came home, they all...

Spiritual Movie Review:
Deja Vu

Deja Vu 
You will instantly be drawn into this beautiful film as the lives of two strangers become interwoven in a magical dance of the soul. How does one choose between a stable, comfortable life and another life that is filled with true love but tainted with uncertainty? This movie seeks to answer this question as these two strangers are ripped between what their mind wants and what their soul desires in this rich display of poetic vulnerability and undeniable synchronicities.

This movie is both realistic and romantic, dramatic and simple, heart-warming and gut-wrenching. For the hopeful romantics, synchronicity lovers, and plain, old good film enthusiasts, Deja Vu will surely leave you feeling pleased.

Spiritual Book Review:
Kiss of a Dolphin by Tom Tuohy

  Spiritual Book: Kiss of a Dolphin
This book will tug at your heartstrings, and just when you think it's tugged enough it tugs just a little bit more. This story is actually a compilation of stories leading up to creating the "Dreams for Kids" non-profit organization.

What started out helping children in the Chicago ghetto eventually became an organization giving to all disadvantaged kids, including the disabled. Just as importantly, this book is about all of the volunteers and the gifts that they receive as they help these kids live their dreams... dreams that many of them didn't think were even possible in this lifetime.

Reading this book begs the question: If some of these kids can accomplish what they have, not despite their disabilities, but because of them... what could everybody in this world accomplish with just a bit of help and a lot of heart?

Also note, all profits from the sale of this book go to supporting "Dreams for Kids."
