Reframing Your Life
What's Good about Bad Experiences
Reframing Your Life
“Instead of letting my past experiences cripple me, I was able to put a positive spin on my experiences.” A negative force can give someone a rallying point and lead them not only find solutions to their dilemma but provide a new path to happiness.
Keys to the Kingdom
School as Sanctuary; Teachers as Mentors
Keys to the Kingdom
In this lecture, Ashley talks about the importance of recognizing strengths, engaging students and youth, and reminds us that school may be the only sanctuary some children have. Ashley gives us a unique glimpse into the lives of children that may have abusive or troubled home lives, and discusses how that can translate in the classroom.

How One Individual Can Change The Life of Another
Making a Difference
It takes only one person to change a life. We all know someone who has been neglected, abused, impoverished, ill, in foster care, is medically fragile, or has a special need. Sometimes, the biggest impact is being made when you’re not even trying!
