Happily Ever After: It’s What I Do

I gave my last presentation of the school year on Tuesday.  It was to a classroom of sixth graders.  For two mornings I explained how to live Happily Ever After.

Prior to the presentation I had their parents write down a few things they like about their appearance and inner qualities.

Because in those gawky Mr./Mrs. Potato Head years when your nose grows faster than the rest of your face, it helps to be reminded what a masterpiece you are.

During the presentation I had the students write down some things they like about themselves.

Prior to the presentation I asked their parents to picture a special future for them:

During the presentation I let them write down what they want their future to look like.

I had them go home and talk with their parents about the qualities that make a good spouse.  And about the qualities they’ll need to develop in order to be worthy of such a spouse:

I told them why it is important to do life in order, to master one stage before they move on to the next, and where sex fits into the whole scheme of things.

The only thing better than speaking a little life, truth and beauty into a person is speaking a little life, truth and beauty into a classroom full of persons.
