Lori Russell-Siemer is an experienced author who holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work from St. Edward’s University as well as a Master’s Degree in Social Work from Texas State University. She has written parenting articles for both the More Than Mothers blog and the Reiki News Magazine. Lori has achieved the master level in Usui Reiki and enjoys teaching adults and children. As part of her spiritual evolution, she has been practicing yoga for over 10 years, as well as meditation, working in her garden, storytelling, and reading books with her children.
Lori wrote this book after searching tirelessly for a means of educating her children about a myriad of spiritual principles. She found that most books written for children are ecclesiastical in nature. She found a void in the area of picture books for young children that demonstrate principles and ideas that her family practiced, such as meditation, visualization, and affirmations.
The lack of such resources did not discourage Lori. In fact, the lack of literature in this category inspired her to take action and create what she felt was missing.
Lori’s goal in writing this book is to encourage children to learn self-compassion, to engage their bodies in play, to incorporate personal spiritual practice into their daily lives, and to get families back to being excited to spend time together which is a challenge with all of today’s distractions and advanced technologies.
