The #FilterHype Project is a book that will be published in 2020


  It is also something that is affecting our teens and preteens  as they explore the crazy world of social media.


Please join us to watch, support or speak into our project! You may even have an opportunity to BE IN the book!


Filter Hype : ASSUMING that someone is happy, wealthy, popular, charming, has great relationships, and a great life, just from a beautiful FILTERED picture on social media, and then COMPARING your life and appearance to theirs based on that assumption.


Don't measure YOUR SELF-WORTH against a FILTER!


Many teens are concerned about their own appearance , as they don't seem to " measure up" to these FILTERED images.


  With this book we are going to reteach the world (and the teens reading our book) what "normal" LOOKS like... What it looks like to be a teen without the lights and     "filters". THEY are NOT the exception...they are normal , and beautiful <3

You don't want to miss it!

Body Positive Children's Book I Love My Nose

Coming Soon!

This is a truly beautiful children's book that I look forward to reading with my son as often as possible! This book has such a special message of self-love, which is exactly what the world needs right now! I loved the beautiful illustrations and the interactive story line that allows further conversation between parents and children about the importance of self-love and of our physical differences which make us uniquely beautiful.

I would absolutely recommend this children's book to all the parents out there looking for a special book with a great message!

Meet The Author

    What is my favorite part of holding empowerment events and writing children's books? Hearing from all of YOU!

Anyone that is taking steps to better themselves and the life of their child gets a STANDING OVATION from THIS girl right here!

Hearing your stories and watching YOU live your BEST LIFE is all of the motivation that I need to keep doing the work I am doing.

I am SO PROUD of you for taking steps in the right direction to protect your child from body negativity and diet culture.


I am SO PROUD of you for teaching them that their bodies are

just PERFECT and are to be CELEBRATED!

I am an illustrator and editorial designer. Images are my expertise and preferred way to communicate. A single photograph or illustration can educate and redefine how people think. I love translating complex topics into beautiful illustrations for kids to learn and have fun in the process.
