Believes education is a lifelong process - enjoys taking one-nighter classes on interesting subjects. (check out Getting a Passion for some ideas on what classes to take.)
Married to a wonderful husband, Bill, in the Arizona Temple - April 1978- Since marrying Bill, we have lived in Utah, Colorado, Arizona and Washington State.
Sept. 1998 - Apr. 2000, Worked part-time as a Personal Assistant, P.A., to a Top Network Marketing Executive (millionaire).Currently: Writer, Volunteer; Founder, Co-Director of Bully Police USA (www.bullypolice.org), and JaredStory.com webmaster, as well as various Computer projects.
Writer - My first book is called, "Bullycide in America: Moms Speak Out About the Bullying/Suicide Connection." It's written by myself and other moms who have lost their children to "Bullycide" (www.Bullycide.org). My 2nd book(s) are a series of e-books, which can be found at www.bullypolice.com. My next book due out in late 2012 - Bullycide in America: Speaking Out about the Bullying/Suicide Connection.
I also do some Consulting and Speaking about Jared, my personal experiences, advocacy for anti bullying laws and bullying research (www.BrendaHigh.com). I teach schools, parents and kids about "The Heroes Method" demonstrated at www.HeroesInTheCrowd.com. Some day I will write a book about this proactive and positive method of dealing with bullying in school: Heroes in the Crowd.
with the Wind"; Just can't beat Vivian Leigh & Clark Gable.
Favorite Music - Ol' Time Rock and Roll - as long as the lyrics aren't nasty and the guitars don't scream. I like most Classical music, especially Antonio Vivaldi - The 4 Seasons. I like some Country music - if the guitars don't 'twang' - Big Band Era and Swing music - Glen Miller (I liked the movie too, with James Stewart) - Santana, Old Beatles music, Old Carpenters music, Yanni and my favorite, JOSH GROBAN, who sings like an Angel! I like just about anything that has a catchy tune to sing to, and a good beat to dance to. When I was in college, I even won some dance contests, ...and, believe it or not, I used to do 'The Bump'!
Favorite Exercises- Walking - I don't jog because I ultimately will trip over something, I'm really clumsy. In the past I have enjoyed (or tried to enjoy) rollar-blading, softball, tennis, golf, swimming, ping pong, billiards, hiking, 4 Wheeling, water skiing, snow skiing, surfing, snowmobiling, fishing, horseback riding and bowling. ...Someday, I might try skydiving, when I've gone completely crazy!
Favorite types of Books - I like self-improvement books, Scriptures and spiritually uplifting books, truthful and educational books, and quick, easy to read, books. I also like Textbooks - Sometimes I like 'hard to read' books. When I read the Newspaper, I skip the propaganda in the editorials, but I like Letters to the Editor. I wish I could read more but I don't have much time... I'm always working on web pages.
I love People - You may be a strange duck, maybe you look different and act different, but for some odd reason, I like you anyway. I really hate gossip because I have been gossiped about. I know what its like to be hurt. Even if I disagree with someone, I will find common ground... and usually when it comes to helping kids who are bullied, we always agree.
Things I can't do - I'm not a very good cook... I burn eggs, ...and almost our house at the same time. I'm a lousy decorator and I have no idea where to put things on a wall, like, "Oh, this is a good spot, there's nothing on that part of the wall!" As mentioned above, I don't jog. I also won't ride on fast roller-coasters, mostly because I'll throw-up. Also, I won't eat sugar free chocolate - If it's not the real thing it's not worth having. I can't sleep in church ...someone has to tell my husband when to wake up.
