"Everyone has a voice deep down inside them, a voice that says “shine”. Some have loud voices, while some have quiet ones. Some people’s voice is so quiet they never get to hear it, while those that do may choose not to listen. Unfortunately, only a few decide to act on this voice, the stars who influence others to listen themselves."

January is Alzheimer Awareness Month

Join thousands of Alzheimer’s advocates who are making a difference!

Did you know that women are doubly affected by Alzheimer’s disease? They outnumber men living with the disease and more often than not shoulder the responsibility of caring for a family member with it.

You know these women. They are the special women in your life – mothers, wives, sisters, grandmothers, and friends.

That’s why this January during Alzheimer Awareness Month, the Alzheimer Society is joining our colleagues across the country to launch a nationwide campaign to get Canadians talking about  Alzheimer’s disease. We want women to take action, be Alzheimer’s savvy, know the warning signs and take steps to reduce their risk – not only for themselves but for those they care about. – Alzheimer Society of Canada

2015, the year I make my dreams come true!

With 2015 ahead of us, we can’t help but think of our own list of resolutions.

New Years is a perfect opportunity to think about what we want to accomplish in the year ahead.  It’s a chance to think of our goals, both big and small, and a chance to create a plan of how we can attain them. It’s also an opportunity to think of ourselves and how we can improve our own outlook, our health, our intellect, etc… As well as a chance to think of others and how we can give back, offer support and volunteer.

WANTED: Encouragers

A great article by Jane Nelsen on encouragement as seen on Positive Discipline
we simply had to share!


Rudolf Dreikurs taught, “A child needs encouragement as a plant needs water.” In other words, encouragement is essential. Children may not die without encouragement, but they certainly wither.

Encouragement is helping your children develop courage—courage to grow and develop into the people they want to be—to feel capable, to be resilient, to enjoy life, to be happy, contributing members of society, and, as Dreikurs said, “To have the courage to be imperfect,” to feel free to make mistakes and to learn from them.

Read the full article here!

“A child needs encouragement like a plant needs water.”

What is Growth Mindset?

For Little Voice, the concept of growth mindset is a means of defining the encouraging message and belief that is embedded throughout our very story.

This message encourages our readers to believe in themselves, to work hard and to chase their dreams with the confidence that they can be accomplished!

No, it’s not a typo.

As you open Little Voice and begin to read the poem that is intended to both rhyme and inspire, you suddenly stop and wonder, “Is that a typo?”

T’was the weekend before Christmas


T’was the weekend before Christmas and all through the mall
Shoppers were hurrying, they had to buy it all!
They looked at their lists, but still couldn’t find…
A copy of Little Voice, but they wanted it signed!
With only 5 days left, what would I do?
To top it off, I have to bake too!

When out in the parking lot arose such a clatter.
I peaked out the door to see what was the matter.
Away on the left, I saw a Little Elf.
I could have sworn it was the Elf on the Shelf!

I raced to my car, I was down to the wire.
And noticed he had left a colourful little flyer.
Little Sweets it had read, Monday on Preston!
A chance to buy Little Voice, it seemed it was destined!

But as I kept reading, my eyes grew real wide!
“Get Little Voice and some sweets on the side!”
Valentina’s Sweet Treats would save me from baking!
I was so excited, my legs started shaking!

I jumped in my car, no need for the mall!
I would just head to EVOO, they had it all!

See you Monday, December 22nd from 7:00-9:30pm!
