November Newsletter 2014

Dear Friends and Family of Heaven's Miraculous Angelic Giving Inspirational Child,

I apologize for my absence. I developed a shoulder injury which made it difficult to maintain my duties. I was very fortunate because it was miraculously cured at at Healing Mass at St. Elizabeth Ann Seaton. God took away all of the pain in my frozen shoulder and I was able to breeze through physical therapy. This also enabled me to complete our application for the Varkey GEMS Global Teach Prize. http://www.globalteacherprize.org/   Winning that prize would be such a BOOST for Service-Learning in the world.

Rio Vista has done an excellent job with their Trick-or Treat collection for U.N.I.C.E.F. this year. Ms. Molera's class brough in the most money and they have earned the Eegee's party. Go Bulldogs!! I was also blessed to be able to attend a No Excuses Univeristy http://noexcusesu.com/   National Convention this year in Las Vegas. I really value the No Excuses team vision and mission and I met some amazing people at the convention. I love that someone said,"No, No Excuses. They are just as capable of getting into college as anyone else!" 

While I was at the NEU http://noexcusesu.com/   Convention, I discovered a very special organization that supports children with Pediatric Brain Cancer. "Friends of Jaclyn" http://www.friendsofjaclyn.org/   is an amazing non profit organization that partners college athletic teams with children who are dealing with the challenges of brain cancer. We trust that in the future Heaven's Miraculous Angelic Giving Inspirational Child will be able to have Service-Learning chapters to support excellent organizations like "Friends of Jaclyn"

Amphitheather School DIstrict has purchased several GooglChromebooks. Thank you Google:)Rio VIsta has gone higher tech! We will now have GooglChromebooks in the classroom. My students and I are very excited about adding this exciting new technology piece to our classrooms. We will able to practice our math facts http://freerice.com/#/basic-math-pre-algebra/16878   and our vocabulary http://freerice.com/#/english-vocabulary/1449   while helping children arounfd the world. They will also be able to use them for research and publishing the school newspaper, The Bulldog Gazette. The Bulldog Gazette team works on articles that cover Science, Technology, Engineering, Math and Service-Learning articles on a quarterly basis. I have been on an absence, but will I resume the Newspapaer Technology group in the new year.

As we reflect on the upcoming holiday, we are grateful for all of our blessings and pray for those less fortunate in the world. We trust that in the future we will be able to teach many people in need how to care for themselves and others through Service-Learning activities. We especially like http://www.heifer.org/gift-catalog/index.html?msource=KIK1B130002&gclid=CjwKEAiAhcGjBRDot_fjjtPKrgsSJACNYh76pVClWKOJ7R5WB-cGrIinIlfJ26_t3ZZDzY02if_4qRoCa2Dw_wcB the Heifer International vision for helping those families around the world. As I reflect on the past and how my 5th grade students raised money to purchase a goat for a family, I am excited to envision many teachers and their students choosing "Heifer International" as a Service-Learning activity.

With reagards to business, we were able to retain our Google Adwords grant. Thank you Google and all of the Google people!! As a teacher I do the best I can with keeping Heaven's Miraculous Angelic Giving Inspirational Child, Inc. relevant and alive. Most of the time I am Tweeting Service Learning activities. If you are looking for great ideas on Service-Learning, join us on Twitter, there are a plethora of examples of Service-Learning there. https://twitter.com/heavensmagiclao. Becuase we have not received any donations, we lost our 501C3 status, but we were able to become a Foundation and any legal questions fro our organization can be answered by John T Shelby  at http://www.taylorhillmanshelbyltd.com/attorneyprofiles.aspx.    We have received support in our incorporation by Roger Taylor, Adword Grants, supplies and prayers and we are very grateful for those:) I am positive that with a significant benefactor/s, we would easily regain our 501c3 status. We trust that those benefactors are out there and will find us in the future. Please remember that I am a teacher and I have all of the responsibilites that come with that career. Service-Learning is part of my focus in the classroom, but there are so many other responsibilities that require my time to be directed elsewhere. I would never to anything dishonest or deceive the public about our organization. 

In reflecting on the Varkey GEMS Global Teach Prize, http://www.globalteacherprize.org/   we are excited to imagine that everything we have dreamed about could launch in an instant! Service-Learning would become part of the curriculum throughout the world and the world will become more heavenly. Currently, they are selecting fifty finalists, from those fifty they will choose ten, and from that ten they will change the life of one teacher in the world. I think what I LOVE most about about the Varkey GEMS Global Teach Prize http://www.globalteacherprize.org/   is that Sonny Varkey and his team cared enough to create it. It acknowlwdges that teachers have great ideas and that with the grace of God, they are just as capable as engineers, scientists, and business people of having an amazing idea that could miraculously change the world and make it more heavenly.

 

Peace be with you, and may God bless your endeavors to help the less fortunate,

An opportunity for a $500,000 matching grant from Theresa's Fund

Recently, our Founder/President was given the opportunity to apply for a $500,000 matching grant opportunity from Theresa's Fund. Laura Ann Osterman designed a project for the grant entitled Theresa's Fund Loves Heaven's M.A.G.I.C. and is in the process of building a larger Board for the organization and rallying the Tucson community to support the project.

The project solicits funding to provide a $5,000.00 scholarship for teachers and college students willing to lead Heaven's M.A.G.I.C chapters in their community. Teacher's in schools participate in Service-Learning curriculum in Knowledge-Creating Schools and provide occasional after school activities for their members. College students participate by organizing and fundraising to support Heaven's M.A.G.I.C. chapters in their community.

Dear Friends,  Smile

I have delivered Heaven's M.A.G.I.C.'s Project/Proposal for Theresa's Fund. I am optimistic about the future for Heaven's M.A.G.I.C.

I pray that we will have support from the community, state, schools, non profit organizations that support education, univiersities, businesses and endowments that we need to start creating Theresa's Fund Loves Heaven's M.A.G.I.C. chapters in the near future.

We will know where we stand in the grant seletion process sometime at the end of July. I will keep in touch, informing you of our progress throughout the entire process. I sincerely appreciate everyone who has taken the time to view our website and pass it on to others.

July 2007 

I am excited to report that The Tucson Unified School District has chosen me to teach the U.T.O.P.I.A. Project and explain the Theresa's Fund Loves Heaven's M.A.G.I.C Project to teachers at the "Back to School Conference" in August.

At this conference I will be able to locate teachers who are interested in becoming leaders of the Theresa's Fund Loves Heaven's M.A.G.I.C. Chapters and the teachers can help us get the message of our projects out to the community.

Thinking optimistically, it will also provide me with an opportunity to practice and refine my presentation, before I present the projects to the Star Committee.

Have a fantastic summer!

August 2007

Dear Friends of Heaven’s M.A.G.I.C. throughout the World!


Heaven’s M.A.G.I.C. has received many blessings in the past six months.


We have a system to channel resources to time and energy which can be duplicated and reach out to others on a global scale, the support of Google, a website that is viewed throughout the world, a larger dedicated, optimistic, and enthusiastic board, and the U.T.O.P.I.A. Project’s presentation at the Back to school conference introduced us to many teachers who will be willing to become a part of this project in 2008. 


However, the blessing of Theresa’s Fund and the $500,000 matching grant will be bestowed on another non profit organization that serves to eliminate abuse and domestic violence in the state of Arizona in 2007.

We received a gracious rejection letter from the Chairwoman of Theresa’s Fund. Her letter encouraged us to reapply in the future and had a “God’s delays are not God’s denials”, tone. I believe our “seed” will be able grow and strengthen in order to meet more of the criteria for Theresa’s Fund in the future. 


We have the utmost respect for Mr. McMurry, all of the employees at McMurry, and the volunteers who choose the beneficiary for Theresa’s Fund.


We have been working diligently to contact Business Angels, Angels Investors, Venture Capitalists and many other organizations and individuals. We have faith that they will be generous to our organization and help it prosper.

We have asked the Board of Theresa’s Fund to continue to refer to the project as the Theresa’s Fund Loves Heaven’s M.A.G.I.C. Project. The system to channel resources to time and energy that can be duplicated and reach out to others on a global scale was designed by the grace of God after Mr. McMurry’s prayer and the package Mr. McMurry sent us lead to all of Heaven’s M.A.G.I.C.’s blessings mentioned above.


We trust that we will be able to raise $1,000,000 and that the first attendees of the U.T.O.P.I.A. Project’s presentation will be leading their chapters in 2008.


We will continue to do whatever it takes to accomplish those objectives.


We are blessed to have the technology to be able to reach 1,000,000 people and if those 1,000,000 people are able to send us one dollar, we can easily reach our goal.


We appreciate anyone who supports the mission and vision of Heaven’s M.A.G.I.C., especially those of you who have added us to your favorites.


You all have a special place in our hearts.

You are the wind beneath Heaven’s Miraculous Angelic Giving Inspirational Child’s wings!

We BELIEVE in MIRACLES!

In God We Trust


Update......
God Bless Janet Napolitano for this gift to Arizona!

http://www.governor.state.az.us/dms/upload/E0_2007-20_SDOC7967.pdf


She signed this Executive Order on the day I found out that we would not receive Theresa’s Fund.


I did not find out about it until after I had to compose this difficult newsletter to notify our supporters that we would not receive the $500,000 matching grant.


Today is a miraculous day!

Celebrate! 


We BELIEVE!!

Love,

Edition 6 
October 2007

Dear Friends of Heaven's M.A.G.I.C.,

     I have many exciting things to share with you
from the month of October!

First, I met with my business counselors at SCORE.
They were extremely helpful with guiding me
throught the process of creating a Business Plan
for our precious seed.

Second, I enrolled for a set of classes provided by SCORE
to help me design our 2008 Business Plan!

Third, the CASE Foundation gave us a free widget from
ChipIn. We now have another safe and secure way to receive
donations. If one million people donate only one dollar,
we will be able to watch those donations grow throughout
the year!

Fourth, the Google Ad Words Grant has doubled
the traffic to our website! We are thrilled to have been
able to reach people all over the globe!

Fifth, we have Angel Investors! They are waiting
patiently for our Business Plan and I am doing
my best to complete it as soon as possible.

Finally, on October 31st, I headed up to Phoenix
for a luncheon sponsored by the Arizona Grantmakers
Forum
and a number of philanthropic and civic partnerships
around Arizona. They hosted Susan Crites Pierce and
she spoke about her book The Giving Family  and
"Teaching Children the Value of Giving." I met Susan
personally before she spoke and she is such an
amazing woman! She supports Service-Learning in
schools and believes it offers many benefits, especially
when students chose the organizations they want to
support. If you have children and you want to instill the
value of community service in your children, I highly
recommend you read her book.
http://www.amazon.com/Giving-Family-Raising-Children-Others/dp/0913892998
It is filled with many ideas that can help parents guide
their children towards service in their community.

She had so many inspiring examples of how children 
have made and can make so much of a difference!
We just need to provide them with those opportunities
to channel their energy and time.

It was exciting to meet so many friendly, gracious,
supportive, wonderful  people who were willing to
connect us to other people and resources to help
us grow our seed into a sprout! Phoenix has a
strong group with huge hearts for helping others.

I am really looking forward to building a strong
relationship with my new friends up north.

I am grateful to God for all of these opportunites and
experiences to help our precious seed blossom.

Since I will be able not write to all of our friends until
after the Thanksgiving holiday, I will wish everyone
a blessed Thanksgiving, Diwali, and peaceful holiday of your choice !

I am thankful for everything!

Bless you for being a part of Heaven's Miraculous 
Angelic Giving Inspirational Child!

Sincerely,

Laura Ann Osterman

November/December 2007

Wow! Where did the time go?
Many exciting things have occured since I last wrote to you.

We were able to secure a Business Savings and Business
Checking account with
Wells Fargo and created an account
with Pay Pal to expedite donations from our
ChipIn widget
from the Case Foundation.

We are grateful to Wells Fargo for providing us with the
opportunity to have a free non profit account!


Through Orkut, I have discovered many ways to feed hungry
people throughout the world. Please click on our Free Rice
page on this site. itI truly touches my heart when my students
come to school and say, "Ms. O I gave 500 grains of rice last night." :)

We have received a generous donation from one of our supporters!
Our widget no longer says $0. We are on our way towards $1,000,000

Although the SCORE Business Plan classes were postponed
unitl January, I was able to speak with a very successful business
woman in the area who runs this non profit organization

http://www.tucsonmiracle.org/ .

The Director of  "Miracle on Church Street", Lorraine Anderson,
has given me some materials and information to be able to get
started on our "Bullet Proof" Business Plan.

We have also been invited by Mr. Phillips to join The Charitible
Profit Arrangement
http://www.charitableprofitarrangement.org/
and we are excited about working with them to raise resources
to build our chapters.

Over the holiday break I will be snuggling up with a book on how
to create the best Business Plan and I trust that I will be able
to accomplish our 2008 Goals!

We truly appreciate the patience of our Business Angels, potential
Angel Investors and supporters.

We love
  Google and the Case Foundation!
As an elmentary school teacher, I use google daily for Heaven's
M.A.G.I.C. and to provide my students with phenomenal resources.

It is like having "Genie in a Bottle" ... I wish for this, bing, done,! I need
to learn about this, bing, done!


The Case Foundation's
endorsement is equally as important
to us because it is a quick way to bring resources together in a safe
and secure way.


There are many things in the news that can bring us down, but
we continue to focus on the positive things that are going on in the
world and we look towards a better future for us ALL!

May you and yours have a blessed holiday season!

For those who love Jesus, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year for all!

May God and His Angels keep you safe and healthy and may He
guide you through any challenges you may incur in 2008.

Believe in miracles! 

Believe in a future full of Heaven's Miraculous Angelic Giving Inspirational
Child, peace and abundance!

Recently, I wrote another poem, Please consider it my gift to you.

This newsletter and a separate page are dedicated to Heaven’s M.A.G.I.C.

Heaven's Miraculous Angelic Giving Inspirational Canine
My Miniature Schnauzer, Mandorla Angelique Tresor, "Mandy."

She was my haloed angelic treasured friend and I was her
caretaker/companion for ten years.

When all of my girlfriends became married she was there on
many a night when I did not have a relationship, let alone any
prospective date, until I met Matthew in my 36th
year.

She was there when my mother traveled and I was left
to take care of the household.

As an only child, I was never lonely when she was around
even when she was just there laying beside me.

Diabetes was her cruel fate and part of me feels awful about
not noticing the symptoms until it was too late.

But for the most part she lived life on her own terms
in a natural, drug free way, and passed peacefully in her
sleep.

I take great comfort in knowing that she did not suffer
and was taken into God's loving arms on Ash Wednesday.

She would always refuse to walk on a leash and I did not
want to bully her into submission. Ironically, she would
naturally heal and walk beside me on many of our walks throughout
the neighborhood.

If she was able to get out of the front door of my home, she
would never go beyond my sight or just take off and run away.

I remember the first time that I saw her, she took to me right way.
She was sick and had kennel cough, my mother tried to persuade
me to pick another pup, but there was something between her and I
that was indescribable. She had such a spark!

I nursed her back to health and other than one ear infection, she
was never sick a day in her life, at least in my eyes.

While I was in graduate school, she was the one who had to be patient
and wait to play, as I created the U.T.O.P.I.A. Project.

When I finally met my soul mate she was the one who
waited patiently for my return from spending joyous
times with the man I love, designing the
Theresa's Fund Loves Heaven's M.A.G.I.C. Project, or
using my spare time to learn about the business world
creating a Business Paln, and building  
Heaven's M.A.G.I.C. into a thriving organization.

I always thought that I would be able to have more time in the
future to be with her. I was wrong.

She brought a tremendous amount of joy into my life and I would
not trade those moments for the ache in my heart right now.

I feel blessed to have been chosen to be her cartaker/companion
and I knew that I was meant to be her caretaker/companion,
because at first my mom said, “No” to bringing her home,
then my mother's dog, Celo, diedfrom kidney failure, and
and my mother said that she "missed the pitter patter of
little feet." 

She suggested that we go back and get Mandy, but it had been several
weeks, so I figured she was already taken by someone else.

Luckily, she was still there. The moment I returned to the pet store, she sat
up all perky and cute the same way she did the first time I walked
up to her, and as she licked my hand and as I grinned from ear to ear,
I said, " Hi little one, we're back, and we've come to take you home."

My fondest memory of her was when she was a puppy.
She had taken an entire roll of paper towels and shredded it
to pieces throughout my bedroom.

After we returned from an outing, I opened the door to
find my precious haloed angelic treasure sitting right
in the middle, hundreds of pieces of shredded paper towel
which appeared to look like snow.

She had a "yeah can I help you, I am a little busy right now"
look on her beautiful face. My mother and I laughed so hard.
I still hope to find the photo that we took that day.

I sat down on the floor picked up a huge handful of shreds
and tossed it in the air. She started to jump up, bark, and
run around the room. We enjoyed every moment of her creative
snowfall that day.

She managed to make it snow in the desert, and that was quite a feat.

If I had $100,000, I would set it aside right now, and use the
interest off of it in one year to build the 
Mandolra Angelique Tresor Chapter of  
Theresa's Fund Loves Heaven's M.A.G.I.C. for my
beloved Heaven's Miraculous Angelic Giving Inspirational Canine

I would ask that the members of that chapter dedicate their service
towards Service-Learning projects that support diabetes.

I would display a photo collage of my precious, loyal, loving,
friend, and the world would become a better place, because
of a special unique soul, Mandorla Angelique Tresor, "Mandy"
Heaven's Miraculous Angelic Giving Inspirational Canine.

As an elementary educator, I will have to settle for the poem
below, which I composed to honor her for now, but I will pray that a
Theresa's Fund Loves Heaven's M.A.G.I.C. Chapter
will one day bear her name.
 
   

I loved Mandy from the first moment I saw her.
I will always love her and hold her in my heart forever.

Her gentle, loving, spirit will be with me as we continue to build
Theresa's Fund Loves Heaven's M.A.G.I.C.
Service-Learning chapters throughout the world!

We had to settle for only one decade.

In that time, a strong and loyal bond we made.


I will always cherish my memories of you.

Your love was beautiful, wonderful, and true.


You’re in a place where you will never feel pain.

Your soul and spirit will renew once again.


You were a spirit unique and free.

Happy go lucky, and full of glee.


So patient with my every wish

I’ll miss your little puppy kiss


You radiated love and grace.

No one could ever take your place.


Even though we’re now far apart

You’ll live forever in my heart


The joy you brought into my life

will always outweigh my pain in the end.


Until the day we will meet once again.

Farwell, my precious, special, loving, friend


I will love you forever,

Precious Bootie Scaputie Tooterind


Godspeed haloed angelic treasured friend.

This month we were blessed to be referred to Mr. Robert Fick, an Advanced Business Analyst in the Small Business Development Center at Pima Community College. Bob is brilliant! He is helping us edit and trim our Business Plan and refine it so that we will be able to present it to the community. He also has a tremendous amount of experience and advice to assist us in accomplishing Heaven's M.A.G.I.C.'s mission and vision in the future.
We are learning many important things about business and running a business properly.

We would also like to take this time to thank the Desert Angels for their advice and support.

Our mission and vision will require a tremendous amount of support and we are very grateful to everyone who supports Heaven's M.A.G.I.C.

From Google, to the Heaven's M.A.G.I.C. Board, to our potential Angel Investors, to Bob, to those of you who share our website with others and spread our message throughout the world, we appreciate your support!

Please understand that we are putting 100% into making sure this Business Plan is a miraculous plan and creates posiitve changes for the entire world!

Please remember to keep us in your thoughts and prayers.

I am blessed to be surrounded by so many people who care about helping us accomplish our mission and vision.

On a more personal note, regardless of anyone's faith, I was very touched by the Pope's message to the world. He spoke many times on liberty, forgiveness, hope, and peace. He asked us to embrace our similarities rather than focusing on our differences to create a better world and he walked his talk the entire time he was here.

His prayer at Ground Zero was breathtaking!  http://blog.beliefnet.com/benedictions/2008/04/the-popes-prayer-at-ground-zer.html

Thank you!

Dear Friends of Heaven's M.A.G.I.C.

As the August deadline for our 2008 goal to raise $1,000,000.00 approaches, I am reminded by my mother's wisdom.

She would always say..."God's delays are not God's denials." 

I will not accept defeat until August 8th at 11:59 A.M.

On August 9th I will reevaluate our goals and set another one accordingly.

I continue to work on the 2008 Business Plan with Mr. Fick and I am learning a
tremendous amount
about the Business World.

Now that school is out and I am only working one job, I have more time to dedicate to Heaven's M.A.G.I.C. 


May was an extremely challenging month for me personally.

I have been teaching for over 10 years and I have never lost a student. 

At the end of the school year one of my students became seriously ill.


Leilani Rowley has aplastic anemia.

She has O+ blood.

She has been in and out of the University Medical Center in Medical Center in Tucson, Arizona several times, had many surgeries, transfusions for blood and platelets, etc.

I would like to take this time to ask anyone in the world, especially those of you in the
United States and those of you who have O+ blood, if you do donate blood, and you do not give specifically to one individual, please donate in Leilani Rowley's name.


I truly admire this Leilani's courage deal with the pain, numerous procedures and frustration that accompanies this illness.

Please help us help my student, Leilani Rowley, in the fight of her life!
She may need a bone marrow transplant in the future.

Life dealt this child a serious blow and all of us continue to pray for Leilani Rowley, Heaven's Miraculous Angelic Giving Inspirational Child. 

I would like to thank Tu Nidito http://www.tunidito.org/for providing a safe place for Leilani and her family to stay while she continues to receive transfusions and treatment at the University Medical Center.

Please hug your loved ones, especially the little loved ones.

It is heartbreaking to see them go from invincible bundles of energy to fragile and weak in an instant.

Please cherish the times that they wear you out because they are thriving and not fighting to survive.

I believe in miracles!

I pray for a miracle for Leilani everyday.


Sincerely,

Dear Friends of Heaven's Miraculous Angelic Giving Inspirational Child, Inc.


It is with deep sorrow that we honor Erik Hite, a fallen hero within our community.

http://www.azcentral.com/news/articles/2008/06/02/20080602tucson-officer0602-ON.html 


It is difficult for us to make sense of tragedy like this.


We grieve for those who suffer the loss of their loved ones because of senseless acts of violence.
http://www.azstarnet.com/sn/metro/241958.php 


We would love to be able to create a Heaven's M.A.G.I.C. Chapter to honor Officers Hite, Hardesty and many other fallen law enforcement officers. 


The only thing that brings us peace in times like these is that an Erik Hite Chapter of Heaven's Miraculous Angelic Giving Inspirational Child will be able to create a more peaceful community and make a difference in the future.


Please keep Officer Erik Hite's family in your prayers.

Dear Friends of Heavens M.A.G.I.C.,
 
This is usually that time of year when I think, "Wow! The summer flew by so quickly!"
 
This was an extremely productive summer! We are almost finished with our Business Plan and we have begun our journey to acquire a plethora of advisers who will help us accomplish Heaven's M.A.G.I.C.'s mission and vision in the future.
 
If you yourselves have any advice or skills you would like to contribute to assist us, please contact us at heavensmagiclao@hotmail.com.
 
As I am typing this, I see that web.com has installed a spell check mechanism, so there should be fewer spelling errors in my future posts :)
 
We have less than two weeks to make our goal of raising $1,000,000.00. In the current struggling economy that was quite an ambitious goal, but I am quite an ambitious woman!
 
I was blessed to have met a very special woman this month.  Suzanne Shadonix, the Principal of St. Elizabeth Ann Seaton School,   http://www.school.seastucson.org/index.php    told me that she believes "God answers our prayers in one of three ways: Yes, Not Yet, or I have something better in mind."
 
So many of our prayers for Heaven's M.A.G.I.C. have been answered with "Yes!", up until this point. We are still in the "Not Yet" phase of the Business Plan, but we trust that God does have "Something better in mind" for Heaven's M.A.G.I.C. in the future.
 
Who knows what the future may hold for all of us, there will be times in the future when we will pray for comfort, assistance and guidance, and what better way to deal with the results than rejoicing in "Yes", accepting "Not Yet" or trusting that God has "Something better in mind."
 
For this month, in addition to all of those of you throughout the world who believe in us, support us, and share Heaven's M.A.G.I.C. with others, Suzanne Shadonix's inspirational faith, hope, love and wisdom has joined all of us, as the wind beneath our wings.
 
As always, we are grateful to Google for guiding us towards a global understanding, helping us locate our resources to excel, and spreading our mission, vision, and messages throughout the world!
 
Heaven's M.A.G.I.C. trusts that God has "Something better in mind" and that one day our ChipIn Widget will runneth over with infinite donations from around the world and we are grateful that He put Suzanne Sahdonix's faith, hope, love, and wisdom in our path at the perfect moment in time.
 
 
We pray, hope, and trust, and we are focusing all of our time, effort and energy, towards announcing that the Business Plan will be completed in our August News!
 
Please be patient, God is not finished with us yet :)
 
 
Sincerely,

Edition 14 August 2008

August was an extremely busy month for me personally and professionally. There were several birthdays! It was also the beginning of the school year and I was engaged in a lot of reading of recent research on Service-Learning.

I am extremely grateful for State Farm. They provide excellent research that summarizes Service-Learning in every state throughout the nation. http://www.statefarm.com/about/part_spos/community/ed_excel/servlrng.asp

You can download their latest “Growing to Greatness” 2008 Report from here on the National Youth Leadership Council’s website.

http://www.nylc.org/pages-resourcecenter-downloads-Growing_to_Greatness_2008?emoid=14:801  

We also continue to work on our Business Plan for 2008-2009 with Mr. Bob Fick at the Small Business Development Center on the Pima Community College Campus. Writing a Business Plan is kind of like giving birth. In our case it might be the birth of an elephant and not a child! We might need the extra three months J I realize that there might be individuals out there who might be getting impatient at this point. However, please understand that we think it is more important to do this right rather than quickly.

There are many guidelines, laws, rules and procedures in business that must be considered.

 Nothing worthwhile is every easy and this Business Plan must be the most worthwhile mission and vision on the earth. It has the potential to create peace, prosperity, abundance and wisdom throughout the world!

In our endeavor to expand our organization throughout the state, nation, and world in the future, we are involved in Service-Learning on a massive scale! 

 Peace and prosperity to you and yours!

Edition 15 September 2008

In September I attended “Where We Stand”. It was “A Conversation about Arizona’s Schools in Tucson.” There were four of the conferences going on at the same time throughout the four regions; Flagstaff, West and Central Phoenix and Tucson.

http://www.pbs.org/wnet/wherewestand/

I am extremely hopeful that the political, business, and educational leaders in Arizona are starting to become more innovative, creative, and active in incorporating Service-Learning, portfolio based assessment and guidelines for implementing more Peer Reviewed materials into the education process. We have worked very hard this year to outline exactly how we will encourage private, charter and public schools to implement Service-Learning into their districts, schools and classrooms.  I have also begun to realize how important it will be for me to have the ability to give 100% of my time to my role as the Founder and President of Heaven’s M.A.G.I.C., Inc. in the future.

On a sad note, I was disappointed that Google decided to move out of Arizona. I hope that they will come back in the future. I believe that implementing Service-Learning throughout Arizona will create a thriving, creative, innovative, and scientifically advanced population and that there will be many opportunities for Google to develop products here in the future.

It’s possible that Google just might have to create charter schools and grow their own. They are just so far ahead of any public institution capabilities. There are very few schools who can deliver what they expect at this point. If everyone worked in a Google environment, the world would be more productive. If every teacher taught in a Google environment, they would never quit and would mostly likely delay retirement until their last breath. If every child learned in a Google environment, they would blow your mind!! I am seriously surprised that other companies, schools, and universities, have not tried to duplicate the Google environment!

We will do our best to duplicate the Google environment in our organization and in our Heaven’s M.A.G.I.C., Inc. Chapters. We want our members to feel comfortable, flexible, and free to create, innovate, explore, and discover the limitless potential for Service-Learning in their future!

Dear Friends of Heaven's M.A.G.I.C , Inc.,

This has already been an unforgettable month for me!

 

It started off with a bang on October 1st!

I attended my first State of Education K-12 Conference and met many warm

and friendly people in the state of Arizona who care very deeply about

education and are working very hard to improve it in this region.

The best surprise was the launch of a  new non profit organization

in the community!

Tucson Values Teachers

http://tucsonvaluesteachers.org/

 

This is a perfect example of the Theresa's Fund Loves Heaven's M.A.G.I.C.

Project. When BIG Business, the government, non profits, and universities

coalesce everyone WINS! If you are an educator, or you know people who

are in the field, you might want to share this with them. If you are a

C.E.O. or a member of of an organization in your community

with many C.E.O.'s, you might want to consider copying the concept of

Tucson Values Teachers in your own community. Tucson Values Teachers

will take care of the teachers and Heaven's M.A.G.I.C., Inc. will

take care of the children K-12.

 

As an educator, the message in the title of the organization alone,

brings joy to my heart! In addition, I was also able to experience

the excitement of a launch! I am so excited about the prospect for

our launch in the near future. Anyone involved in putting together

Tucson Values Teachers must surely be

Heaven's Miraculous Angelic Giving Inspirational Child at heart!

The people in my state and surrounding community have stepped up

in a HUGE way and I am extremely grateful for their efforts!

 

In addition to being a full time 4th grade teacher in a Title I school,

I continue to network in the community and work on our miraculous

business plan.

 

In case anyone may be wondering,

Heaven's Miraculous Angelic Giving Inspirational Child, Inc.

Loves Teachers  !

 

Google... Would you consider coming to Tucson in the future?

 

We would love to have you here! I am sure if you became a part of

Tucson Values Teachers, many teachers would love the opportunity

to have an internship with you for the summer !

 

Thank you for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers!

Edition 17 November 2008

WOW!

This has been an unforgettable month for the United States of America!

Seeing tears in Oprah Winfrey's and Jessie Jackson's eyes made me realize how naive and blessed I have been to be sheltered from the the injustices many people have seen, felt and heard.

I HOPE that many people realize that many of us were never a part of that injustice and treat us the way they would want to be treated, instead of the unkind ways they have been treated by others.

We, the members of Heaven's M.A.G.I.C. have worked so hard to make significant differences for ALL!

Our organization will never endorse one particular person for President. However, we will always respect our privilege as a nation to vote, the will of the people, the office, and the leader in the position.

Our efforts to create Heaven's M.A.G.I.C. Service-Learning chapters throughout the world requires tolerance, acceptance, forgiveness, patience, courage, understanding and love for ALL!

Government is one of our four resources we need for our project in order to accomplish our mission and vision.

We would like to create our chapters in public schools, charter and private schools and we need teachers throughout the world to support our effort to instill Service-Learning in the world.

Personally, tears come to my eyes when I consider what Heaven's M.A.G.I.C will be able to do in 40 years!

Barack Obama has been blessed to become the first African American President of the United States of America!

We would love to build Heaven's M.A.G.I.C. Chapters to honor, Ann Soetoro and Madelyn Dunham, and the women who helped him achieve his dreams.

I have a dream too:) It's is going to take a lot of work, and I have much to learn but I believe I am up to the task. 

What's your dream?

Believe, hope and trust in the ability to achieve your dreams!

We did.. and it is a joy to live it!

The dreams we have for ourselves are miniscule compared to the dreams He has for us!

The U.T.O.P.I.A. Project begins with the words "Understanding towards the needs of others." We believe and trust that understanding and compassion will help us create a more peaceful, plentiful, and loving world!

 

Peace, hope, and love to all of our friends throughout the world!

The people of India and those throughout the world are in our thoughts and prayers.

May God help heal your pain in this time of loss and give you the strength to endure this tragedy.

Our desire is to create a Powerful Force For Good, a tolerant human race that focuses on our commonalities and not our differences, so that these tragedies will not occur in the future.

We hope that people around the world will consider creating Heaven's M.A.G.I.C. Chapters in their schools, in their countries and dedicating them to the innocent tourists and citizens of India who were brutally murdered by the terrorists, and the courageous Indian police and military officers who sacrificed their lives to fight terrorism and save the lives of others.

They will be remembered, they should not be forgotten.

We pray for PEACE on EARTH.

We ALL believe in ANGELS!

Pray that the ANGELS will guide us on a path towards peace.

This type of tragedy affects us deeply and makes us more determined to accomplish Heaven's M.A.G.I.C.'s mission and vision.

Edition 19 January 2009

 

Dear Heaven's M.A.G.I.C. Friends and Family,

 

Happy New Year!

We understand that things are tough everywhere. Many countries, states, cities, and towns have felt the impact of the economic downturn.

Arizona has recently decided to make cuts to the Education budget for all state universities and K-12 education, in order to save the state from going bankrupt.

We just HOPE that this is our organization's opportunity to step up and work with local school districts.   We TRUST that in the future all children and teachers who are willing to engage in Service-Learning will have the opportunity to work with us, help us help others endure these trying times, and LOVE, SERVE, and LEARN.

We were thrilled last month to learn of an Arizona State Statute that allows school distircts to rent space to profit and non profit organizations.

The 2009 Business Plan will need to be revised and adjusted to meet new expenses and costs.

Rest assured that we will always focus on QUALITY over quantity and that we will NEVER borrow or go into debt to run our organization.

We believe that Service-Learning is the best solution for Arizona in these trying times, especially with deficits in the education budget.

In closing...

Remember...

When things are great, be grateful for how great things are.

When things are challenging, be grateful for how great things are.

Focus on your blessings.

 

Don't be ENSLAVED by FEAR!

FAITH and TRUST will LIBERATE you from FEAR!

 

Peace to you,

March and April news coming soon!
 
March/April 2009 Newsletter
Edition 20
 
Dear Friends and Family of Heaven's M.A.G.I.C,
 
I apologize wholeheartedly about the fact that this news letter has been delayed.
 
Unfortunately my lap top crashed and although the love of my life was able to save all
of my information from the hard drive, I am not in a position to do everything that 
I usually do.
 
As soon as I am able, I will share great news about my students efforts this year to support the Heifer Foundation!
 
As many of you are aware, there have beeen cuts to the education budgets in the United States,
Arizona , and locally in this area.
 
In addition, there were also cuts made to Pima Community College and the Small Business Development Center.
We are very concerned that we may lose the greatly apppreciated, free assistance from Mr. Bob Fick .
 
If there is any way that anyone out there can find a way to help support the
Pima Community College Small Business Development Center
please contact Mr. Bob Fick at 1(520) 206 6404.
 
People like myself, who envision a better future and have innovative ideas, need the services Mr. Bob Fick provides.
 
How difficult do you think it would be for an educator to understand the Business World?
 
I can honestly tell you that Business is it's own culture. It has specific rules, norms, language, laws, dress, and etiquette.
 
 
There was and still is so much to learn and Mr. Bob Fick has been so patient us as we have embraced
our mission and vision for the community, state, country, and world!
 
When we went searching for a service to help us write a Business Plan, they were asking for over $4,000.00.
 
Mr. Bob Fick's at the Pima Community College Small Business Development Center's service was free to our
organization, because of generous people like you who believe that they are 
people out there who have great ideas, but they might be able to afford the guidance they need.
 
So... if there is any way that you can help Heaven's M.A.G.I.C. this month, we really need Mr. Bob Fick and
we would like to continue to work with him. He believes in what we want to accomplish.
 
He realizes that it is a HUGE endeavor, but he understands how much of a benefit it will be for our organization 
to grow and expand in the future!
 
Heaven's M.A.G.I.C., Inc. Loves Mr. Bob Fick, Advanced Business Analyst at the Pima Community College Small Business Development Center!
 
Please, please, please find a way to keep the Pima Community College Small Business Development Center ALIVE!
 
Heaven's M.A.G.I.C., Inc. was created by a teacher and her students in a classroom!
 
As a "Classroots" organization we need the support of the community, we need people like Mr. Bob Fick!

 
 
Peace, love and prosperity,

Dear Friends and Family of Heaven's Miraculous Angelic Giving Inspirational Child,

We are outraged at the senseless killing of innocent people, most recently that of Annie Le.

We are disgusted at people who prey on people, especially children and take them away

from their loved ones. It is a tragedy that this happens every day and we just continue to

watch its aftermath on the news.

NOW is the time to step up and say NO MORE! NOW is the time to take back the night!

Take back our streets, take back our neighborhoods, take back our schools, take back

our local, state and national government from people who allow this to happen.

If you are not ENRAGED about the killing of Annie Lee then consider this....

Only God kew of the plans He had for her. What if those plans would have included

having her use her brilliant ability, knowledge, and talents in pharmacology to cure

cancer and now we may never know.

In one instant, EVIL took that all away. It is our hope that Service-Learning chapters

will be created throughout the world to honor all of the innocent victims of senseless

evil crime.

The Le family and her finacee are in our thoughts and prayers. As well as all of those

of you, throughout the world who have lost your loved ones to senseless acts of violence and evil.

We cannot change the past, but we can and we will make sure that things like this are

prevented as much as possible with Service-Learning in the future.

Don't be afraid to shine your light of FAITH, HOPE and LOVE in the darkest areas of your

neighborhoods, schools, and cities.

Coalesce, oragnize and eliminate the darkness with your LIGHT!

Don't be afraid! 

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the

wickedness and snares of the devil; may God rebuke him we humbly pray;

and do thou O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, cast

into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who wander about the world seeking

the ruin of souls. Amen.

Remember, the majority of the world believes in angels, and call upon the

most powerful angel in the world to defeat evil, transform the darkness into

the light and heal the world.

 

http://www.news10.net/news/local/story.aspx?storyid=67675&provider=top  

Rest in peace my beloved sister in faith.

Enjoy your eternal life and rest in the splendor of your rewards in heaven.
 

Sincerely,

Laura Ann Osterman

October 2009 Newsletter

Dear Friends and Family of Heaven's Miraculous Angelic Giving Inspirational Child, Inc.,

Our biggest challenge in expanding our organization has been raising "seed" money, but we feel very blessed to have been given an alternative sloution in these difficult economic times.

My 2009 gift to our supporters "The Kingdom of God; Rejoice, Awaken and Arise" on my Youtube channel CRE8HVNONEARTH is circulating throughout the world and has been gaining a lot of support.

We hope, pray and trust that "The Switch" will create a boost to our efforts of helping the less fortunate throughout the world.

This and our Google Adwords Grant have given us the faith to continue to pursue our mission and our vision.

 

Recently, I have been working on networking and learning as much as I can about business.

I took an opportunity to attend a networking event at the Tucson Chamber of Commerce and everyone was so helpful, friendly, and supportive.

During the event I even won a door prize from Office Depot. It was a bag filled with many earth friendly, colorful, recycled office products. I was thrilled to see how businesses are stepping up to carry recycled and earth friendlier products!

Here is a picture taken at the event

Jack Camper, President of the Tucson Chamber of Commerce, Laura Ann Osterman, Founder and President Heaven's Miraculous Angelic Giving Inspirational Child, Inc., and Tammy Child of Office Depot.

 

In effort to make sure that my mind is able to catch up to my heart and soul, after prayer, reflection, and comtemplation, I have decided to apply for a Doctoral Program in Educational Leadership at Northern Arizona University.

I created "The U.T.O.P.I.A. Project" while I was working on my M.Ed. in Leadership at Northern Arizona University and I can't imagine what God will have in store for me in a Doctorate program.

I feel that the knowledge and skills set of this program will be very beneficial to our organization in the future. I ask that you keep me in your thoughts and prayers as I work on this endeavor and I am excited about the potential to create, engage in, and defend a dissertation of Educational Leadership, with regards to Service-Learning activities, experiences, and research within my community in the future.

If I am fortunate to be accepted into the Ed.D. program in Educational Leadership and I become unable to perform my duties as President I will make sure that a member from our fabulous, energetic, supportive Heaven's M.A.G.I.C., Inc. Board takes over in my absence. I will always be blessed to be the Founder, that will never change.Laughing

 

With regards to fabulous news in the school system, a teacher at Safford K-8 Engineering and Technology Magnet School, the middle school for the elementary school I teach in, was awarded "Arizona History Teacher Of the Year"

Kate Gilbert engages her classes in Service-Learning. Her students helped tutor my students last year, and she encouraged the elementary school students to raise money for The Heifer Foundation. She teaches students that school is a blessing, because many children throughout the world do not have the ability to go to school.

She uses portfolios in her classroom and she attended a lengthy program working with graduate students and university professors in the field of History.

This university experience would be similar to the idea behind Dr. Hargreaves' Knowledge-Creating School concept.

She is an example of "The U.T.O.P.I.A. Project" and she is one of many teachers that I would like to be able to offer our bonus grant to in the future.

I am thrilled because something I belived in and had faith in is coming into fruition.

It is humbling, amazing and breathtaking to see my research come to life in the community.

Congratulations Kate Gilbert! Cool

 

If anyone else out there knows of anyone else who has engaged, engagaes or will engage in these experiences, please share it with us!

 

On a sad note, we have not forgotton Derrion Albert.  Our prayers are with Derrion's family and friends.

We pray for a better future and believe in a time when people will live in abundance, peace, faith, and love. We pray that people in Chicago have a chance to view "The Kingdom of God; Rejoice, Awaken and Arise" on our Youtube channel CRE8HVNONEARTH and that Chicago does "The Switch"  to save its community. We pray that students in Chicago begin to engage in "The U.T.O.P.I.A. Project", LOVE, SERVE, and LEARN and transform their community in the future.

 

God grant us the sereneity to accept the things we cannnot change, courage to change the things we can and the wisdom to know the difference.

Don't be afraid to change your community, city, state and the world! 

Have the COURAGE to transform the darkness into the light Chicago. Show your brothers and sisters the power of God's children's FAITH, HOPE, and LOVE.

 

Have a blessed day or evening,

There is a wounded soldier in Fisher House at Ft. Sam Houston Texas, by the name of Daniel Thornhill. 

Sgt. Thornhill lost both of his legs and both arms as well as being burned over 56% of his body, while serving his cou
ntry in Iraq. 

Daniel has been at Fisher House for two years and his parents are reaching out to people for moral support of their son. 

His parents are asking you to please send cards and letters to show him how much his service has meant to us and to let him know we do love him for what he has sacrificed for his country. 


His parents are worried about his emotional status. He hardly has any visitors.
Please show your support by sending a card, a gift or flowers this holiday season. Every little bit helps....

January 2010 Newsletter
 
Dear Friends and Family of Heaven's Miraculous Angelic Giving Inspirational Child, Inc.
Although we have struggled to raise money to create Service- Learning chapters, we are motivated by the infusion of Service-Learning activities that have been taking place throughout the world this year. Many people have begun to think of positive ways they can use service-learning to impact their communities.
 
Our Google AdWords Grant continues to help us reach people throughout the world and inspire them to implement service-learning in their communities and create projects that can make a global impact. In many ways we have begun to see our mission and vision take flight in communities throughout the world. We hope that our organization's mission, vision, and ideals will help inspire many people throughout the world to believe in a Supreme Being and His messengers, who will guide them towards peace, prosperity and abundance in the future. 
 
We understand that these are extremely challenging times and for those of you who are unable to support us financially, all we ask is that you pray for our organization, you share our mission, vision, and research with others and that you do whatever you can to create a more heavenly world on a daily, weekly, monthly, and/or yearly basis. 
 
It could be as simple as picking up a piece of trash that didn't belong to you, or smiling and responding to the person who is checking you out at the store. Remember Mother Teresa's voice... "Do no great things, only small things with great LOVE" 
 
Whatever it is that you do, in 2010 do it with absolute joy, because we are all part of the fabric, that once woven together creates a miraculous tapestry.
 
For those of you who love, honor and worship God in the suburbs, please consider making "The Switch"  and spreading the mission of making "The Switch"  http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?v=app_2392950137&ref=profile&id=549223965

Tenth Anniversary Newsletter February 2010!

 

Dear Friends and Family of Heaven's Miraculous Angelic Giving Inspirational Child, Inc.,

 

We have officially reached a decade of sharing Service-Learning. Some of those years were spent engaging in local Service-Learning activities, some were spent on researching on Service-Learning, and more recently, in the past three years we are reaching a global audience. 

In an effort to have an attitude of gratitude, we are extremely grateful to 

Google
 
 
 and those of you who have supported our organization and kept us in your prayers. When there are tragedies throughout the world, and people lose their loved ones, we are comforted with the fact that one day we will be able to build Heaven's Miraculous Angelic Giving Inspirational Service-Learning Chapters for all of your loved ones. We trust, hope and pray that you will also find comfort in creating Heaven's Miraculous Angelic Giving Inspirational Chapters for your loved ones in the future. 

 

 We believe that February 14, 2000 was the perfect day to incorporate our organization! We desire to spread LOVE throughout the world through Service-Learning to those in need. We desire to honor those you LOVE by creating Service-Learning chapters in their honor, and we trust, hope, and pray that tolerance in faith will lead the people throughout the world to LOVE one another, and that peace will reign in His Kingdom in the future.

 

We trust that He and His Angels will guide us there.

 

I am working on another poem for our supporters. It is entitled

Newsletter April, May and June 2010

Dear Friends of Heaven's Miraculous Angelic Giving Inspirational Child, Inc.,

Although our organization has not done well with fund raising and building Heaven's M.A.G.I.C., Inc. chapters, we are thrilled about the fact that Service-Learning is becoming more valuable to communities throughout the world.

Recently, Arizona schools have had to made more cuts to their budgets in education and many after school programs have been cut, so there is a lot of potential for our organization's mission to be accepted, appreciated and approved of by private, public and charter schools in the future. 

Unfortunately, while I did make an alternate list for the Doctoral of Educational Leadership program at Northern Arizona University, I was not accepted. This was most likely due to the fact that many people had more experience in leadership and within the field of education than I did. I might consider reapplying in the future, but I am also considering other opportunities.

At this point there are many obstacles to overcome in order for our organization to be embraced in the public school system, but we continue to do our best to make sure people are aware of our mission and vision.

Optimistically speaking, I am young and have many years to acquire the skills that are necessary to move our organization forward and once I am retired form the classroom I will be able to devote 100% of my time to accomplishing our mission and vision.

On a closing note, I am very proud of my 2010 5th grade class! They donated their spare change and candy money all year long and with my help they were able to purchase a "Flock of Hope" and "Trio of Rabbits" from the Heifer Foundation.  http://www.heifer.org/site/c.edJRKQNiFiG/b.204586/?msource=kwg529&gclid=CPqs8dKvnaICFRZ5gwodFmWzuw

They also came up with several inspirational ideas after watching the" Paper clips"movie.  http://www.snagfilms.com/films/title/paper_clips/    As middle school students, they are considering creating a memorial for the 911 tragedy in the future.

As much as I would have liked to accomplished many big things this year, I was only able to accomplish a few small things, but I did them, as always, with great LOVE.

"Never worry about numbers. Help one person at a time, and always start with the person nearest you." 

 Mother Teresa

 

Perhaps you and your community might be able to do the same and trust that the little things do make a difference, especially when it comes to taking that extra trip from the suburbs into the inner city to love, honor and worship God? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L8hTC7GT4dI&feature=related

We have enjoyed our monthly Sunday visits into the inner city "Capilla" and have gained a lot of joy, awareness, insight and wisdom from them. We have also imagined what it would be like if more people were willing to make the switch and descend upon those in need and those thoughts bring tears of joy to our eyes.

 

Have a blessed summer,

We would like to take this time to be thankful for all of our blessings, we feel especially grateful to those who have supported us at Google:)

At this point the optimist in us says..

 

"What could be more MIRACULOUS than accomplishing our vision and mission without ever receiving a single dollar?"

 

What if you were the teacher willing to work with students after school in an organized Service-Learning environment? 

What if you were the community member who donated office supplies to those teachers who were volunteering their time?

What if you were the professor who donated their time to make sure the teachers who were involved in the program had the best updated professional development in the field of education?

What if you were the student who was willing to volunteer their time to participate in a variety of Service-Learning activities after school to improve your community, state, nation, and world?

 

What if all our organization really needs is just YOU, AKA..Heaven's Miraculous Angelic Giving Inspirational Child?   :)

 

Remember...

In the future Heaven's Miraculous Angelic Giving Inspirational Child, Inc. Chapters will be built for ......

Summer Newsletter 2011

Dear Friends and Family of Heaven's Miraculous Angelic Giving Inspirational Child, Inc.,

This newsletter is an addendum to the "Fruits of the Spirit Campaign" and it can also be located under the "Fruits of the Spirit Campaign" tab on the website.

The Fruits of the Spirit Campaign Continues to Flourish!  

Heaven's Miraculous Angelic Giving Inspirational Child's 2011 Summer Mission For the Homeless!

Be cCoolCooll towards the homeless this summer!

Give them an umbrella..a shelter to give shade from the heat by day, and refuge and protection from the storm and the rain. 

 

Summer help for the homeless can also help increase public's awareness of churches, colleges, soroities, fraturnities, families, non profits and companies that care about making a difference.

 

Please consider purchasing umbrellas from here http://www.impr.net/cheap%20umbrellas.htm or elsewhere for the homeless.

 

Feel free to add your church, non profit, college, fraturnity or soroity, or company logo to the umbrella and inquire as to a business or tax write off for the future.

 

Why an umbrella? They offer much more shade than just a hat! Umbrellas can shade their arms and entire body when they do not have access to sunscreen:)Cool

 

For less than a meal at Mc Donald's, You can shelter God's beloved child from the heat that beats down on them throughout the day.

 

If you work for a company with over 100 people, even better! Your company can purchase them in bulk and provide many of the homeless people in your city with a welcome relief from heat.

 

The idea came to me from the Holy Spiorit, this article http://azstarnet.com/news/local/article_41bce44b-a6c8-5268-b1b1-88282d1eb99d.html and the fact that anytime I am out in the Arizona heat, and trust me there is not much hotter than that, I am just saying, well, anyway... Anytime I am out in the Arizona heat, I would rather have an umbrella to shield everypart of my body from the sun's relentless heat.

 

If you are a small business owner, go to the dollar store or any other discount store, but some umbrellas and iron your company logo on them or just take a pemanent maker and write on them. Everyone in the city will see the umbrella and know that you and your comapny, church, college, soroity or fraturnity, non profit organization and or business are making a difference and reaching out to help people in need in your community.

 

Isaish 4:6 There will be a shelter to give shade from the heat by day, and refuge and protection from the storm and the rain. 

 

Probably the best thing a Christian could write on an umbrella is from Matthew 25 

'Come, you who are blessed by my Father. Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.
For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me,
naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.'
Then the righteous will answer him and say, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink?
When did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you?
When did we see you ill or in prison, and visit you?'
And the king will say to them in reply, 'Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.'
 Then he will say to those on his left, 'Depart from me, you accursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.
For I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink,
a stranger and you gave me no welcome, naked and you gave me no clothing, ill and in prison, and you did not care for me.'
Then they will answer and say, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or ill or in prison, and not minister to your needs?'
He will answer them, 'Amen, I say to you, what you did not do for one of these least ones, you did not do for me.' 
And I trust that those who honor other faiths have something that will get exactly that same message across to the public.
Peace, love and shade be with youCool

Husk påsken 2000


Husk at når du gråter,
du ble aldri dømt til å dø.

Husk at når du tror du mislykkes,
ditt kjøtt var aldri gjennomboret av en spiker.

Husk at når du er et offer for latterliggjøring og hån,
du aldri hadde på seg en krone av torner.

Husk i tider med tap,
du var aldri hengt  et kors.

Husk at når du føler deg alene,
du kan nå meg i min himmelske hjem.

Husk at jeg steg til en himmelsk opphold,
slik at jeg kunne være med deg hver dag.

Husk at jeg elsker deg av hele mitt hjerte.
Din skjebne er å skape himmelen på jorden
og er nå en perfekt tid å begynne!

Husk at når du føler deg som en synder,
du er tilgitt og oppfører seg som en vinner!

Husk at når du savner noen nær hjertet ditt,
delt glede, moro og kjærlighet vil aldri holde deg fra hverandre.
      
      De kan leve evigsom jeg gjør, i ditt hjerte.
  Love,
Jesus

Dear Friends and Family of Heaven's Miraculous Angelic Giving Inspirational Child, Inc.

My school, Safford K-8 Engineering and Technology Magnet School, has selected me to be the

Service Learning Supervisor for K-8 after school activities!

 

I will be presenting a Service-Learning Lesson Plan http://heavensmagic.org/id37.html to the entire faculty

of Safford K-8 Engineering and Technology Magnet School on October 21st at 8:00.

You can download the lesson plan from here http://www.curriki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Coll_HeavensMAGIC/SaveOurCommunityOneStudentataTimeALessonPlanforEducatorsStudentsandPeopleintheirCommunity

 

From there, I hope that the teachers will, in turn, teach the students of Safford K-8 how to

write letters to people in the community.

 

They have the option for applying for a $500.00 MAC Grant from McDonald's and/or 

I also plan on delivering those letters to people in the community.

 

Thus, people in the community will become aware of all of the fabulous ideas 

Safford K-8 Engineering and Technology Magnet School administration, faculty,

students, parents and staff have for Service-Learning in the Tucson community.

 

During this process, I will consider how to design a program that will meet the

needs of all schools throughout the world and I should be able to

finally design a concrete Business Plan to meet the needs of our organization in the future.

 

A sprout of Heaven's Miraculous Angelic Giving Inspirational Child, Inc.

has been planted in a Title I school, Safford K-8 Engineering and Technology Magnet School, 

in the Tucson Unified School District.

 

One can only imagine how the entire Tucson community will benefit from the generosity of

local businesses, and the Safford K-8 Engineering and Technology Magnet School administration,

faculty, students, parents and staff.

 

If you want to support Service-Learning in Southern Arizona, specifically Tucson,

please consider giving a tax donation to Safford K-8 Engineering and Technology Magnet School schools

and designate it for after school activies related towards Service-Learning.

 

My dream is to be able to do this for the world on a full time basis.

Take a look at Safford K-8 Engineering and Technology Magnet School here.

Dear Friends and Family of Heaven's Miraculous Angelic Giving Inspirational Child, Inc.,

Wow! Where did all of those months go? The students at Safford K-8 Engineering and Technology Magent School did a fabulous job with bringing in socks and clothes for the Tucson Unifed School District Clothing Bank and students in need!

 

Unfortunately, it is with an extremely heavy heart that I inform you that a kindergarten student at our school, who had just celebrated her sixth birthday yesterday, joined all of His Saints and Angels in Heaven. Although I was not her educator and she was not in my class, she did spend the day with my class once, when a substitute failed to show up and her class was divided amonst the rest of us educators. She was the LIGHT, joy, and His LOVE made visible. She lived life with so much PASSION, it was absolutely breathtaking to watch. She would dig in the sand without any regard to getting dirty, walked with a spring in her step and would always catch my eye and smile when I ran into her in the hallway.

Several weeks ago we were told that she went to the nurse with a tummy ache and the next thing we knew they were operating on her because of an aggressive form of cancer.

I write to you of these events in pink because Bianca Ochoa loved pink.

It absolutely breaks my heart that currently in my school we have an educator, Robin Gilbert who is willing to lead a Service-Learning chapter of Heaven's Miraculous Angelic Giving Inspirational Child and that the 1st Chapter at Safford K-8 Engineering and Technology Magnet School will be created to honor Bianca Ochoa. A vivacious, lively, adorbale child, who was filled with love, joy, and PASSION. I knew in my heart deep down that she was special.

I had looked forward to possibly becoming her educator one day, but I will have to wait a lot longer until we are reunited in Heaven. I will never understand why someone like her was only given quality and not quantity of life.

Right now I will look to my faith and poetry for solace especially "Remember" and "Life is a Gift Let Go, Give it Back to Him" to give me strength and I ask for your prayers for Bianca Ochoa's family, friends and the adminstration, faculty and staff of Safford K-8 Engineering and Technology Magnet School.

The mission and vision of Heaven's Miraculous Angelic Giving Inspirational Child, Inc, was to always honor children like Bianca Ochoa, I just had no idea how close I would become to someone that we would create a chapter for and how much I would desire to make sure that people would never forget her.

Once I have received her family's permission, I will post the only photo that I have of her wearing her hot pink shirt, making a butterfly in the sand on the sand area playground of our school.

 

Peace be with you and thank you for all of your prayers.

May 2012, Newsletter

 

Dear Friends and family of Heaven’s Miraculous Angelic Giving Inspirational Child, Inc.,

 

I have always believed that true leadership was about courage, service and sacrifice. Excellent leaders are not as concerned with bossing people around and being in charge, as they are with helping people to be able to take charge of themselves in the future.

 

With that mindset, I decided to pass the torch of being the Safford Serves Supervisor to my colleague Robin Gilbert. Since that transition, Robin has done well with the Safford Service-Learning Club and has made us realize how our mission and vision will significantly impact surrounding communities in the future.

 

To actually see an educator get excited and have so much enthusiasm with regards to Service-Learning is breathtaking!! Currently Robin is being supported by a grant earned from the federal government. Ideally, we would prefer that her support come from local businesses and/or people from the community, but she is enjoying her experience and I truly believe that once a business plan is created by experts in the field, we will be able to help Robin help serve her community while she is able to provide a way for her daughter to attend the University of Arizona in the years to come.

 

Ms. Gilbert lives right in the neighborhood of Safford K-8 Engineering and Technology Magnet IB Candidate School and has always been excited about the impact Service-Learning can make in any community. Robin is the perfect person to be the first educator to embrace Service-Learning in a connection to our organization. She is a selfless giver, outgoing, hard working, and enthusiastic about making a difference in her community.

 

Please see the article below

Congratulations Robin Gilbert and all of the members of Safford Service Club!! Well done! Please continue to make a difference in your community! 

 

Remember….

Love, Serve, and LearnJ

 

We look forward to sharing many, many, many more amazing service learning experiences with you in the future.

 

It is so amazing to see our motto, vision and mission come to fruition!!

 

We believe in Miracles!

Dear Friends and Family of Heaven's Miraculous Angelic Giving Inspirational Child, Inc.,

 

There are no words to describe the anguish I feel in my heart for the people in Newtown.

 

As a first grade teacher, I was completely devestated by the incidents that occurred at Sandy Hook.

 

The only way I can cope, is to believe that those who were killed, will be honored by the people in their

community, in a way that will make the world a better, more peaceful and loving place.  

 

We trust that the people of Newtown will embrace Service-Learning and all of the benefits it has

towards uniting a community to produce caring, giving, and inspirational people

who make a significant difference in the world.

 

Many fabulous things have occured with Service-Learning in my elementary school with our students and it just

breaks my heart that our first project in the new year will be to create cards for the children of Sandyhook and

establish Pen Pals with all of the first grade students who survived and will need the support of their peers

to know that we all support them.

 

Many wonderful things have also occured to me personally, but now is not the time to mention those things. 

 

Please pray for Newtown.

Teachers of Newtown, please know that every educator in the world prays for you in these challenging times. 

We trust that you will continue to be His warriors, and protect His pure love and light from the evils of the world.

 

 

Peace be with you.

 

Be the light in the darkness, no matter how dark it may get out there.

Have the courage to fight for the slightest spark of light, you never know how important it might be

in the future.

 

Love people that seem almost unloveable, because they are the ones who need it the most.

 

The faith of the people of Newtown makes me realize that the light will never

be estinguished, even in the darkest of earthly days. 

 St_Michael.gif

Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host -
by the Power of God -
cast into hell, satan and all the evil spirits,
who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.

 

Amen. 

 

God bless Newtown!

2012-2013 Newsletter

Dear Friends and Family of Heaven's M.A.G.I.C.,

Both Mrs. Gilbert and I worked together with a Service-Learning activity group this past year, due to an upcoming IB certification visit, and the HUGE demands of working in a Title I school that was in its second year of correction, we had to scale back our meetings from twice to once a week, and eventually I was leading the group with the assistance of many fabulous parents.

The 2012-2013 school year went well! At Safford K-8 we were able to have a Service-Learning after school activity group. The students did many amazing activities. Most of them were from my 1st grade classroom. The late start made it difficult for us to venture out into the community and be able to be back to catch buses and rides, so most of our activities centered around making things for people in need, collecting money for great causes and making sure there was a lot of "Free Rice" in those bowls. http://freerice.com/category  

At the end of the 2012-2013 year we celebrated our accomplishments and the theme was "I am the 1%", because only 1% of the entire K-8 student body was able to participate. Many students who might have been interested in Service-Learning, had scheduling conflicts and were busy in other activities and/or being tutored. The tutoring was extremely necessary, as the school was in their second year of correction. However, recently all of their hard work has paid off and it is rumored that the school is in good standing with a C grade at this point in time.

On a professional note, I am excited to announce that I have accepted a position as a 4th grade teacher in the Amphitheater School District! I will be located at Rio Vista Elementary and I am looking forward to introducing and sharing Service-Learning with the administration, faculty, student, parents and staff there. They are already doing so many wonderful Service-Learning activites and I think we are a great match. Check out the school's FB page here.https://www.facebook.com/pages/Rio-Vista-Elementary-School/154910401299431   

There is also a strong Family Teacher Organization too! Check out their FB page here .https://www.facebook.com/pages/Rio-Vista-Elementary-FTO/170937039639196

I am really looking forward to an earlier start that allows us the opportunity to go out into the community and engage in Service-Learning activities. I am also looking forward in being a part of the momentum that is already exhibited in service to the community through the Amphitheater School District and Rio Vista!

In addition, to the change in my career, I also wanted to let you know that I was married on May 26, 2012:) Given all of the shootings, and the recent bombing, I found it difficult to announce such joyous news during this past year. 

It was a most blessed day and I am enjoying married life tremendously!  Here is a picture of Matthew and I on our wedding day! As you can guess, it also took quite awhile to prepare for that joyous day. 

 Wedding.jpg

Currently, this summer I am doing my best to get our 501c3 status reinstated or consider turning Heaven's M.A.G.I.C. Inc. into a Service-Learning Foundation. Our Google Adwords Grant is up for renewal in July and without that documention we might not be eleigible for it in the future.

I will continue my releationship with the people at Safford K-8 and help them with any Service-Learning needs they might have in the future, but for now I am looking forward to a new path and a new journey as I embark on once again becoming a part of Amphi! I taught 5th grade there in 2000, but was part of a Reduction in Force without any seniority. In 200 we did many exciting activies with the local hospitals and assisted liveing centers and I am looking forward to getting back to those activities in the future.

Once I have permission from all of the parents, I will display the adorable picture of Safford K-8's  1% at their end of year celebration of Service-Learning here. For now I will just share their delicious Red Velvet Cake, decorated in Huskie school colors, yum:)

cake.JPG 

 

I would like to take this time to apologize for the lack of Newsletters in the past year, but remember Sevice-Learning is not my full time job, it is my contribution to the community. I will do my best to locate other people who might be able to help us out with writing these Newsletters and let you know about the many fantastic activities we are doing in the community from time to time. I anticipate being very busy in my new position as I get acclimated to my new surroundings 

Peace be with you, and remember... Every little thing you do in Service-Learning for others, is a BIG thing to them.

Dear Friends and Family of Heaven's Miraculous Angelic Giving Inspirational Child,

I apologize for my absence. I developed a shoulder injury which made it difficult to maintain my duties. I was very fortunate because it was miraculously cured at at Healing Mass at St. Elizabeth Ann Seaton. God took away all of the pain in my frozen shoulder and I was able to breeze through physical therapy. This also enabled me to complete our application for the Varkey GEMS Global Teach Prize. http://www.globalteacherprize.org/   Winning that prize would be such a BOOST for Service-Learning in the world.

Rio Vista has done an excellent job with their Trick-or Treat collection for U.N.I.C.E.F. this year. Ms. Molera's class brough in the most money and they have earned the Eegee's party. Go Bulldogs!! I was also blessed to be able to attend a No Excuses Univeristy http://noexcusesu.com/   National Convention this year in Las Vegas. I really value the No Excuses team vision and mission and I met some amazing people at the convention. I love that someone said,"No, No Excuses. They are just as capable of getting into college as anyone else!" 

While I was at the NEU http://noexcusesu.com/   Convention, I discovered a very special organization that supports children with Pediatric Brain Cancer. "Friends of Jaclyn" http://www.friendsofjaclyn.org/   is an amazing non profit organization that partners college athletic teams with children who are dealing with the challenges of brain cancer. We trust that in the future Heaven's Miraculous Angelic Giving Inspirational Child will be able to have Service-Learning chapters to support excellent organizations like "Friends of Jaclyn"

Amphitheather School DIstrict has purchased several GooglChromebooks. Thank you Google:)Rio VIsta has gone higher tech! We will now have GooglChromebooks in the classroom. My students and I are very excited about adding this exciting new technology piece to our classrooms. We will able to practice our math facts http://freerice.com/#/basic-math-pre-algebra/16878   and our vocabulary http://freerice.com/#/english-vocabulary/1449   while helping children arounfd the world. They will also be able to use them for research and publishing the school newspaper, The Bulldog Gazette. The Bulldog Gazette team works on articles that cover Science, Technology, Engineering, Math and Service-Learning articles on a quarterly basis. I have been on an absence, but will I resume the Newspapaer Technology group in the new year.

As we reflect on the upcoming holiday, we are grateful for all of our blessings and pray for those less fortunate in the world. We trust that in the future we will be able to teach many people in need how to care for themselves and others through Service-Learning activities. We especially like http://www.heifer.org/gift-catalog/index.html?msource=KIK1B130002&gclid=CjwKEAiAhcGjBRDot_fjjtPKrgsSJACNYh76pVClWKOJ7R5WB-cGrIinIlfJ26_t3ZZDzY02if_4qRoCa2Dw_wcB the Heifer International vision for helping those families around the world. As I reflect on the past and how my 5th grade students raised money to purchase a goat for a family, I am excited to envision many teachers and their students choosing "Heifer International" as a Service-Learning activity.

With reagards to business, we were able to retain our Google Adwords grant. Thank you Google and all of the Google people!! As a teacher I do the best I can with keeping Heaven's Miraculous Angelic Giving Inspirational Child, Inc. relevant and alive. Most of the time I am Tweeting Service Learning activities. If you are looking for great ideas on Service-Learning, join us on Twitter, there are a plethora of examples of Service-Learning there. https://twitter.com/heavensmagiclao. Becuase we have not received any donations, we lost our 501C3 status, but we were able to become a Foundation and any legal questions fro our organization can be answered by John T Shelby  at http://www.taylorhillmanshelbyltd.com/attorneyprofiles.aspx.    We have received support in our incorporation by Roger Taylor, Adword Grants, supplies and prayers and we are very grateful for those:) I am positive that with a significant benefactor/s, we would easily regain our 501c3 status. We trust that those benefactors are out there and will find us in the future. Please remember that I am a teacher and I have all of the responsibilites that come with that career. Service-Learning is part of my focus in the classroom, but there are so many other responsibilities that require my time to be directed elsewhere. I would never to anything dishonest or deceive the public about our organization. 

In reflecting on the Varkey GEMS Global Teach Prize, http://www.globalteacherprize.org/   we are excited to imagine that everything we have dreamed about could launch in an instant! Service-Learning would become part of the curriculum throughout the world and the world will become more heavenly. Currently, they are selecting fifty finalists, from those fifty they will choose ten, and from that ten they will change the life of one teacher in the world. I think what I LOVE most about about the Varkey GEMS Global Teach Prize http://www.globalteacherprize.org/   is that Sonny Varkey and his team cared enough to create it. It acknowlwdges that teachers have great ideas and that with the grace of God, they are just as capable as engineers, scientists, and business people of having an amazing idea that could miraculously change the world and make it more heavenly.

 

Peace be with you, and may God bless your endeavors to help the less fortunate,

August 2016 Newsletter 

Dear Friends and Family of Heaven's Miraculous Angelic Giving Inspirational Child, Inc.,

Recently I have become challenged with gaining weight. This was most likely due to a decline in metabolism, stress from teaching and making a huge move across the country from Arizona after my husband accepted a position in Florida. However, by the grace of God, I have come up with a creative way to shed those pounds and provide a challenge for myself and others. I LOVE challenges:)

In an effort to share my successful journey to lose weight and eat a healthier diet. I have decided to create a Pinterest Board to share Soups for the #100DaySOUPerChallenge http://pin.it/gtdPUle 

I have covered over 51 days of delicious and nutritious soups on the 100 Day SOUPer Challenge Board. My goal is to get to 100, but if I don't, you can just use each soup twice :) If you decide to give it a try, these soups will help you reach your goal. Some have recipes and others do not. Just think of your kitchen as a lab for creating SOUPer mixtures while you engineer your own creations.

The only advice I have is....Always use fresh vegetables and fruits and always use a lot of garlic, onion and spices:) Have fun with it! I challenge you:) #100DaySOUPerChallenge #EattheRainbow #JustDoIt

People can easily turn the 100 Day SOUPer Challenge into a Service-Learning activity by creating soups and serving them to people in need. Many schools actually have gardens where they grow their own vegetables and create soups for a fundraiser to riase money for others,  or to feed people less fortunate in their community.

 You can turn any idea you might have into Service-Learning. You could even create a cookbook full of your students/groups favorite SOUPer recipes and sell it to the public, in order to raise resources for others.

Update...December 19, 2008

YOU can STOP THIS!   WE can STOP THIS!

For $7.50, Less than a movie, you can provide food for a starving child.

http://www.doctorswithoutborders.org/donate/fieldpartners/

 

$0.25 cents a day provides two nourishing meals every day for a month to a child threatened by famine.

We endeavor to create a chapter that will support Doctor's Without Borders in the future.

At least this way, the next time you see a starving child, you can feel hopeful and not hopeless, and powerful instead of powerless.

Ideally, if everyone who owned a credit card did this, the problem probably would not exist.

And remember... Every time you sit down to eat a meal, figuratively speaking, there is a cute, smiling, child sitting across from single you, and/or you and your family enjoying your generosity.

Your family size has increased, and for those who dislike eating alone, figuratively speaking, you'll never eat alone!

Please share this message with your friends and family and pass it on!

Spread it like wildfire throughout the world!
