Book Spotlight and Giveaway: Online Book Tour – What are You Thinking and Humbug: A Christmas Carol. Ends Dec 19th


About the Author, Valerie Ackley: Valerie Ackley graduated from college with a degree in Business Management and worked eight years in the telecommunications industry before becoming a full-time homemaker to her 5 sons.

After attending a seminar by Leslie Householder, author of The Jackrabbit Factor, Valerie gained a better understanding of the effect our thoughts have on our experiences. Valerie had a strong desire to introduce these principles to her sons.

The idea for “What are You Thinking?” was born when she was unable to find any similar products for children. She hopes this book will be a tool to open a discussion between parents and children regarding the power of the mind, and the importance of wisely selecting our dominant thoughts. Valerie has seen her children benefit from applying these principles. She believes this book, with the delightful and humorous illustrations created by Lori Nawyn, will empower children and parents to enjoy the endless rewards of positive thinking. Valerie lives in a beautiful valley at the base of the Wasatch Mountains in Utah, with her husband and five sons.


Book Title:  What are You Thinking?

About the Book: Our thoughts, be it positive or negative, determine who we are and what we become. That is why helping our children understand the power of thoughts from an early age is essential.

Studies show that children with negative thoughts are more likely to give up; they lack confidence and motivation. On the other hand, children who think positively take on their life, they overcome challenges, they are more enthusiastic, and driven. Author, Valerie Ackley, illustrates the power of our thoughts in the award winning book,

What Are You Thinking? This book introduces children to the Law of Attraction. Beautifully illustrated with fun characters and humorous situations, this amazing creation teaches the power of the mind and the importance of wisely selecting our dominant thoughts.
