Thank you so much for all of your hard work, careful thought, and caring hearts in bringing this message for all the children of the world. My daughters and I have greatly benefited from both levels of this program. I hope that I am able to take this wisdom you have given to me and my family and “pay it forward.” Bless you all.

Level 2 definitely helped me deepen my knowledge on how to deal with my opponent and listen to my true voice. Each lesson was something that will be needed later on in my life. This whole program gave me a good foundation on how to handle different situations. These lessons were presented in a fun and creative way, which motivated me. It’s a great accomplishment to finish both levels in SFK.
“I have seen the SFK program touch the hearts of everybody, no matter where they come from. I have taught SFK to kids in schools, in nonprofit organizations, in factories, and at hospitals. These kids were from different backgrounds (low income to high income), from violent and non-violent environments, ranging from 7 to 58 years old (because even adults have an inner child!) – all with the same result: the child, or the inner child in a grown-up, realizes that they have a wonderful LIGHT within and that they do not have to look for it outside themselves. They learn there are rules and easy-to-use tools that will help them live and share a rich and fulfilled life. The program touches people in such a way, that I, as a teacher, have also been affected. I have seen the Light in everyone. I now value how special everybody is in their own way.”

“I’ve been teaching the SFK curriculum for 11 years in different settings, originally as a teacher for the organization teaching close to 500 students a week ages 7-12, and now as a private coach and workshop leader I coach parents and their children through the curriculum in a more focused way. Having these tools at my disposal to guide my students and clients through a journey of what it’s like to get to know themselves at a core level has been life-changing both for them and myself. From overcoming negative self-talk, to communication blocks with parents, and difficult relationships with teachers, the SFK curriculum has given me a foundation, plan, and vocabulary to guide my students and clients through situations and challenges; important opportunities to become a better version of themselves, they would have otherwise let slip by unnoticed. In my practice, although I have access to many other coaching tools, this by far is my first stop in working with clients. I believe if parents and children truly understand and can apply the tools learned in the SFK curriculum, they will be able to live a life of open dialogue, utilize every challenge they encounter as an opportunity, and truly connect to their power to make a difference in the world through their own winning in the game of life.”
