Each and every one of us has the ability to help teach peace in the world, whether we are parents or educators, or not.

We can be an example of how to behave peacefully with friends, family, co-workers, and even strangers we cross paths with.

By offering compassion, kindness, and acceptance with all other beings at all times, we are leading the way for others.

We are demonstrating what kindness is about. That’s what it means to role model. We are being the way-showers. We are teaching peace.

  1. Martin Luther King Jr. day. The schools in my kids district didn’t discuss the man of peace. Peace is rarely spoken in Washington. I wish I know how to slow the world down. When soldiers fight and died. When the poor and the innocent in the way of war and hate are killed. They were someone child and are gone forever. I will never understand how people threaten death and violence before trying to fix a problem. Thank you for your site. The word “Peace” need to be brought out and showcase to men swimming in lobbyist money.

    1. Those are wise sentiments indeed John. Thank you so much for your visit and for taking a moment to leave an important message. Peace does need to be brought out and spoken of, discussed, considered. Thanks again. Namaste. Gina

  2. Every time I pull up your posts I go, “Ooooh! Pretty!” I love your style. As a teacher and parent I know, “Kids watch EVERYTHING.” You think they’re not paying attention and then BAM–they took in everything.” Thanks for being a Lightworker, Gina! Great post. Hugs! Jamie

    1. Jamie my friend! I feel a hug right through your loving comment πŸ˜€ Thank You! Yes we might think they’re not watching, but they soak up every mood, every interaction we have with strangers/staff in stores, all of it. I appreciate your kindness, fellow-Lightworker! Loving Hugs, Gina

  3. You’ve done it again, Gina – posted a message that cuts to the chase and gets to the heart of the issue. I am going to repost this to JanBeek. I love it! “Create your own inner peace” – or better yet – accept the “Peace that passeth understanding,” and then live it for yourself and others. Yes! πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you my sweet friend! I am honored and delighted that you enjoyed this enough to share it on your inspiring blog. How wonderful to pass this message along ~ teaching peace. And you put it perfectly with your quote from scripture, and to ‘live it for yourself and others’. Yes indeed! Love, Gina

    1. Jenny! Thank you πŸ™‚ I am honored and humbled at the same time. I’m so glad you enjoyed this post and wanted to include it in your Best Moment Award list. Big thankful hugs xoxo πŸ˜€ Gina

    1. You are so kind! Thank you Ruby for enjoying this post, and my blog, enough to share it with your readers in your wonderful post! Bless your heart. Thank you, thank you πŸ™‚ Hugs, Gina

    1. Thank You for this wonderful comment, and that’s so well put. Instead of trying to ignore our wee critics it definitely should be the other way around: we should be trying to gain their approval! Love and Light to you, Gina

    1. Hello DeDe, and welcome! I’ve noticed your name in the comments section over at your mom’s amazing site as I compose a reply thanking her for another one of her wonderfully inspiring posts. And here you are! I’m so glad you enjoyed this post. Thank you!

  4. Well, as you know, Gina, I am in the “thick” of parenting…with our two little ones right here! I find that teaching my kiddos peace is just weaved into what Brian and I do as parents. It’s like “learning”…there isn’t a clear line for us between a “teachable moment” and the kiddos learning something. BUT i do believe this way of parenting takes intention and reflection. Brian and I have been very mindful and intentional about how we parent and what we want for our family, for each other, for our kiddos. PEACE is weaved into it all. Along with service, compassion, and love. Love to you! Keep the posts comin’! I’m always so inspired and uplifted reading your posts! Love, Lisa

    1. Hello dear friend Lisa! Your comments always bring such wisdom. I love how you shared that our parenting years don’t include obvious ‘teachable moments’ but rather role-modeling how we live to our young ones. I believe that! When I made mistakes like a short temper or raised voice, I quickly calmed myself and sat on their bed and said “I’m sorry”. It might not seem like a lot but it made a big difference in my world to share with them that I was human – doing the best I could but making mistakes sometimes. I could still be the ‘boss’ (especially important for a single mom) while being able to admit the occasional mistake and step up to make amends. I am so happy for your lovely son and daughter to have such aware parents. I have every faith that those two individuals have an excellent start in life, and will help make a wonderful difference in our world! Loving Hugs, Gina

      1. Gina, I do the same kind of thing w/ my kiddos — if I’ve been “off” or yelling or really frustrated, I just stop, pause, say, “Ok, let’s regroup. I’m sorry. let’s have a redo!” And it turns it all around. Such love to you, Gina!!! Love, Lisa

  5. This is so beautiful and so important in this world of ours. Peace starts with teaching children:) thanks Gina.
