Book Suzie as your guest for your podcast

A collection of books to teach our children to look inward and feel at home within themselves
 Let's set our children off on their spiritual journey so that they will learn early on to know and love themselves

"The spiritual exercise of heightened awareness and self actualization has mostly played out in the adult arena. These books give children the opportunity and head start to build their own spirituality."

Rabbi Asher Jacobson

Meet Suzie Stern, Author of
The Home Within You

Suzie was born and raised in Montreal. She deeply cherishes her childhood memories. Though Suzie moved away over 20 years ago, she still refers to Montreal as home. Suzie lives in Toronto and practices Family Law with an emphasis on representing women who are survivors of domestic violence as well as children in the context of both custody/access and child protection litigation. Many of the children that Suzie represents are living in foster care, group homes, or on their own. It is Suzie's privilege and passion to have discussions with her own kids and her child clients that provoke them to think about their inner world. As such, Suzie has created a childrenโ€™s book collection called โ€œThe Home Within You.โ€ The book collection codifies the lessons she imparts on her children so that they may look inward and feel at home. It is Suzie's greatest hope to set our children off on their spiritual journey and build Self-Awareness, Self-Esteem and Resilience.

What Suzie can share with you on the podcast?

๐Ÿ“š What is The Home Within You? And, what does it shelter you from?
 ๐Ÿ“š The role of parent/guardian: nurturer, short order cook, driver, tutor, nurse, cleaner... and spiritual guide???
Bringing reflection and introspection home.
 ๐Ÿ“š Love. Consider the love others offer to you, the love you extend to others, and the love you gift yourself.
 ๐Ÿ“š Think about the home that you want to build. Introduce concepts of talent, contribution and purpose with children.
 ๐Ÿ“š Be a friend to yourself and you will have a companion for life!
 ๐Ÿ“š See your beauty. Your beauty is in your smile, voice, heart and mind.
 ๐Ÿ“š Make room for all thoughts and feelings, even the uncomfortable ones.
 ๐Ÿ“š Joy, hardship, laughter, struggle and adventure. The home within you will weather it all. 

"Kids, particularly teens, struggle with who they are and this book provides them a clear path of how they can find their โ€˜trueโ€™ self with a simple tool at their disposal." 

Pastor Amos Sarwan, Lead Pastor of Grace Place, Director of Grace Place Food Bank

A book collection with the tools to support our children to journey inward.

It all started from one book and expanded into a collection! 

The Home Within You is the original Reading Book that all of the other books in the series originate from. There is an Introduction Book with a more simplified read to introduce children and young readers to the concepts found in the original The Home Within You reading book. There is also an Activity Book with worksheets, coloring and reflection pages based on the original The Home Within You content, to reinforce the lessons and enhance engagement with the concepts. The Side By Side Book is for the parent/guardian and child, and geared toward side by side engagement and deep connection. The pages are divided between child and side by side participant to emphasize working in tandem. There is also a Teaching Book with worksheets, coloring, reflection pages and unique lesson plans based on the original The Home Within You content. This book also includes a login to access all PDFs.
