Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: Over the past few years through building our online parenting community we have built some great friendships with other authors. We wanted to provide parents with a list of resources you can use to assist you on your conscious parenting path. These authors write about a variety of topics: autism, connecting with nature, soul-to-soul parenting, alignment and joyful parenting.

Editor's Note from David Arenson: An important video about sacred economics. We know the current system isn't working. Eisenstein offers an alternative he calls "sacred economics". "We've all been given a gift, the gift of life. What we do with our lives is our gift back." I encourage readers to watch and spread the message of new possibility, community living and sharing of resources. This is true sacred living.
