Thank you for investing in the “In Search Of Heroes Training Program” for Christian Moms who want to teach their children how to be successful, happy and fulfilled early in life. It is based on the teachings of Napoleon Hill, derived from a public domain copy of his book “Think and Grow Rich,” completely rewritten from a Christian perspective.

The “In Search Of Heroes Training Program” began in 1993, while I was a photographer and Special Features Writer for the Coronado Eagle Newspaper in San Diego. I loved to write stories about local Heroes. I wanted to spread the “Good News” about amazing neighbors who were mentoring students and helping others in their community anonymously. At that time, I was upset by the media identifying actors, professional athletes and celebrities as role models. I believed this was a huge mistake because movie, sports and rock stars, who focused on money, fame and notoriety, were not good role models for kids. Being rich, good-looking and famous did not qualify anyone to be a Hero or role model. So, I enlisted the help of local community leaders to create a program to test the theory that, “Parents are the real Heroes in our society!” Our goal was to take high school journalism and multi-media students on assignment in search of local Heroes, just like Clark Kent mentored Jimmy Olsen in the Superman Comics. Our leadership team worked with the Heroes at the Coronado Chamber of Commerce, Rotary Club, Cablevision and Eagle Newspaper. The journalism and multi-media teachers and principal at Coronado High School helped facilitate the program with their students. The program was a great success, but with unexpected results. Moms were considered the unsung Heroes 90 percent of the time. Dads were rarely mentioned. Moms truly deserve more recognition and praise for being Heroes to their kids. Over the last 23 years, I have been working on a training program for students and parents to discover, honor and promote local Heroes in their family and community. It is based on the powerful lessons I learned while taking care of my Mom and Dad after they suffered catastrophic illnesses in 2004. Mom experienced congestive heart failure and pneumonia. Dad suffered a terrible stroke that paralyzed his right side a couple months later. After 3 years of intensive care for both, my Mom died, then my Dad one year later. I was their primary caregiver 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Taking care of my parents was the greatest challenge of my life. I was desperate to find solutions to my overwhelming problems. Many of the internet Heroes I interviewed before my Mom and Dad got sick, recommended the book “Think And Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill. They said his knowledge, wisdom and advice helped them triumph over many failures, illnesses and difficult challenges, so I bought and studied the book. I discovered many valuable answers to my questions and solutions to the difficult problems I faced! If only someone had shared the valuable information with me in my youth. Knowing the truth and understanding how my mind, body, soul, spirit and the universe works would have been invaluable. I could have achieved my goals sooner and enjoyed my own Heroes Journey more! Many of my failures could have been avoided, emotional suffering and health problems minimized. Now, in gratitude for what I learned from Napoleon Hill, I want to share with you the useful tools I discovered that helped me so much.
