About the Book

Understanding the choices we make and why we make them can be key in learning about ourselves. If children could be guided to understand the “stories” we tell ourselves are not always true. Then be further guided to question those stories before they lead us down an unpleasant path, they would live under greater possibilities. Understanding choices and their impact would give us new insight to other perspectives and limit our judgments of others. Learning to read on a comprehension level that involves emotion is another aspect of the “I Have a Choice” book series. Each story has various possible journeys, allowing the reader to see how choices can affect “our story.” Believing that there are no “mistakes,” many times the ending will be the same; it is just the journey, the experience, that we choose to make different. Using real-life situations that youth may find themselves in, helps to identify and lay a foundation of possibilities to draw from.

About the Author

After raising three children, Cindy Porter began a journey of selfdiscovery. Embarking on a new career, and submerging herself in books, Cindy’s journey blossomed. At forty-nine, she chose to begin parenting all over. Madison was born in 2001. Her siblings were sixteen, eighteen, and twenty. Raising a child later in life and as a single parent also guided a new, intriguing thought process. Having a desire to teach Madison to live on a different consciousness level brought about the idea behind the “I Have a Choice” book series. It is her desire to help children and their caregivers understand how the situations we encounter on a moment-by-moment basis can be met with a new understanding. That we indeed, have a choice regarding the impact and the direction we allow each situation to have in our lives.
