From the Inside Flap
All kids need a space of their own, a sacred place, where everyday realities like peer pressure, family issues, bullies at school, or low self-esteem cannot penetrate: a place of comfort and creativity that reflects and encourages their own positive intentions and beliefs, values, goals, and dreams for life.
Within the vibrant pages of Kids Sacred Places, Kelee Katillac shares her "House of Belief" philosophy of decorating for kids and adults. Her landmark case studies and colorful photographs inspire all who enter to create rooms for believing and belonging. Heart and Hands Projects throughout the book will allow you to take a positive idea--from your heart--and make something from it with your hands. This affirmative decorating process allows kids and adults to literally "see evidence" of their potential in life. These projects also offer healing for all who encounter bullies, negativity, and other life challenges. .
The "House of Belief" philosophy is one of interior transformation for the home and the soul. It enables kids to create personal sanctuaries where the spirit of the young can joyfully grow, believe, and thrive. And, as they paint, craft, and create into being their intentions about life within their homes, we come to realize that the real sanctuary they are making is within themselves.
