“In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.” (Albert Schweitzer)

Your divine spark goes by many names. 🔥

It is your soul, your essence, your guidance and grace, and your deepest knowing. 🙏🏻

During the pandemic, many of our fellow neighbors around the world experienced challenges, ranging from isolation and lockdowns, to job loss and income loss, to illness and/or the loss of a loved one, to learning the balance of working from home, while homeschooling our children. 😟

As the result of the stress and uncertainty, the divine spark within many was suffocated and nearly extinguished. 😔

And so, as we begin to create our post-pandemic lives, one of our newest neighbors is here to help us return home, to ourselves, to reconnect to our divine spark and to help our little ones remember their own spark. 🔥

Children’s author and illustrator, Ani Castillo joins our John Masiulionis for Episode #118 of The Empowered Publicity Children’s Books Spotlight Series to share her inspiring story, the release of her two new children’s books, Ping and Spark (published by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers), what it means to ping and be a good energy machine, how you can reconnect to your divine spark during challenging times, the importance of summer reading, plus much more. 🏓📚✨

We encourage all of you to support Amanda by purchasing your copy of Ping and Spark, and enjoying this empowering read with your little ones! https://amzn.to/3zkgEjU. 💻
