Inspiration From PS22 Chorus

I love how the kids from PS22 Chorus share joy through music. Here are some of my faves from them plus the Once in a Lullaby: The PS22 Chorus Documentary that shows how they got started:

Julene’s Journal: Share Your Passions and Love With All Your Heart

julenedrawingThe world and the people around you could always enjoy some more love so give it away, and give yourself and your gifts to others with all your heart! Here’s one way I give away love and share my passions…a few months back I found a livestreaming site kinda like Periscope but the audience is mostly kids & teens (some of my favorite kinda people:). I really felt led to be a light & start streaming fun, uplifting broadcasts sharing characters I sketch to inspire my stories, singing songs I write and just sprinkling some inspiration and love to the awesome peeps who tune in. It turned out to be really fun especially getting to encourage people & talk about dreams✨, life & fun stuff with a spontaneous dance-off here and there (fun, hilarious times) with people I meet and guest who sometimes also share their art with me.

If you’ve got a passion for art or music or anything else but feel amateur or disqualified I say go for it anyways – that’s what I share with young artists on my broadcasts – the more you create and hone your craft, even if for fun and therapy to relieve stress and make life brighter, the better you get and the more light & love you spread into the world!

Dream BIG with Queen Girls: Stories of Real Women Turned into Fairy Tales

If you’re like me and have a deep passion for empowering our kids and youth then you’ll love this project created by a group of inspiring ladies. Queen Girls is a series of children’s books that turn stories of real women into fairy tales to encourage them to live out their dreams.

When I first saw this amazing project I was immediately drawn in like YES! This is what our girls need to see, that their dreams are possible and that they shouldn’t be afraid to dream BIG. The first book in the Queen Girls series shares the story of the first African American woman pilot Bessie Coleman and the illustrations are so vibrant, enchanting and engaging. You can help bring this project to life by donating to the IndieGogo campaign and pre-ordering your copy to help bring these books to children in need of inspiration and connect with them on social media and their website:

Young Artist Akiane Kramarik Still Creating With a Greater Vision

I remember watching Akiane Kramarik on The Oprah Winfrey Show as a little girl – she was one of the motivations for me to pursue my passion in art. She painted amazing, realistic portraits and images inspired by God – my favorite is her popular painting of Jesus that was used in the movie “Heaven is For Real.” I love this update from The Oprah Winfrey Network’s Where Are They Now where Akiane talks about how she is still making art and impacting others with her vision.

Inspiring Music Picks: One Love and Marley from Brock Baker and Back to Church Duet with Alyson Stoner


Brock Baker inspires us with his soulful cover of Bob Marley’s song “One Love” and his original uplifting song Marley (which both so fit what the world needs today – more love, grace, peace and unity). If you haven’t heard Brock’s music yet it’s time that you do – he’s an Arizona-bred, LA-based singer/songwriter/YouTuber. After a great run on Glee as one of the Dalton Academy Warblers, Brock continues his musical journey with covers and originals that highlight his unique, sincere voice and passion for his craft.

Be sure to also check out Brock’s duet of “Back to Church” with his friend Alyson Stoner, and his cover of Drake’s One Dance with Molly Kate Kestner – love all of their voices and how they mesh together:
