Due to Ning (our Web hosting company) being bought recently from the ashes of Mode Media we often experience 500 connection errors. Our apologies but these errors are out of our control. Hopefully, this will improve as the new company gains experience. Regards, AU

Growing Our Power (to Produce Results)


Growing Our Power (to Produce Results)

As newborns we cried and others responded with attention or food. Though helpless, we produced results. As we grew up we produced results in more ways; we grew our power.
What were/are our experiences? Did/Do others help or harm our efforts?

So, I was in my 40s when I grew the power my sister and brother were growing when they were not yet ten. Seeing the considerable value of what I could have learned early but did learn late, I set out to show others who were wanting to grow their power. What I'm doing here might help atheists grow power. I want to try.

I was 11 when a baby girl joined the family and 14 when a baby boy joined it. I did a lot of childcare (called babysitting then) and didn't know I was seeing them grow their power.

At that time I didn't know my dad's violence had interfered with my efforts to grow my power. I also didn't know the Catholic school my dad had put me in was interfering in another way.
