When your mom is THE BRAIN BROAD, you are lucky indeed!
|Lynette Louise aka THE BRAIN BROAD (aka my mom!)|
Pictured here playing with one of her many lucky grandchildren!
She loved us with action and understanding, always. She knew things about us and our behaviors that we were afraid to know alone, but were blessed in knowing with her by our side. She encouraged us to always step up and step forward; to learn and to grow and to take responsibility for ourselves. Okay, she did more than encourage... she insisted!!! It was a rule in our home, and consequences were creative but always pertinent when we didn't learn or step up!
So now, as we eight kids have become eight adults, when mom works so hard and with such passion to teach and share and give what she knows, we, too, try and give back as much as we can! We share our stories and tell the world about her amazing shows, outreaches, and writing!
We also pretend we aren't afraid when she travels to dangerous places. She almost died in India (from a mosquito bite) and created a stir in Uganda. She traveled with an addict and spent every moment with him for weeks--when he was desperate and possibly dangerous--and she waltzes brazenly--and lovingly-- into homes filled with fear and abuse and large violent folks.
"You can't walk gingerly. You have to step in and say I am going to love you robustly, and we are going to get to the end of this!" ~Lynette Louise aka THE BRAIN BROAD
When your mom is THE BRAIN BROAD you work tirelessly to tell the world and help gather funds for projects that make a difference. *Including an upcoming outreach for her reality series FIX IT IN FIVE with LYNETTE LOUISE aka THE BRAIN BROAD (on The Autism Channel) for a family living in Israel, where wars are raged. You do it because you know she can help the family. You don't hope or think... you know.
When your mom is THE BRAIN BROAD there is no room for fear or worry. There is no place for not stepping up or moving forward, because the consequences are just too great. She can help, and we know.
When your mom is THE BRAIN BROAD, you forever have support and love that is action oriented and consistently offered. And you never stop learning to grow up!!!
When your mom is THE BRAIN BROAD, you are lucky indeed!!!!
Hugs, smiles, and love!!!!

Enjoy this video of Lynette Louise aka THE BRAIN BROAD working/playing with a lovely little girl and her mom in Kampala, Uganda. I love this fantastic footage from the first of five families in the international series FIX IT IN FIVE with LYNETTE LOUISE aka THE BRAIN BROAD.
*Once it's published I promise to include and share a link to the upcoming Indiegogo Campaign where we'll be gathering funds and connections for her trip to Israel. Check out our last one HERE. We're coming up with some pretty neat perk ideas (you get different perks with each contribution) and having a blast noticing how far we've come already in the series!! It's such a huge endeavor, but we're beginning to see the truth of it's possibilities!!
