Affirmations for Little Men: Launching a Movement

The day is finally here, Arise Little Man is available NOW!

“Today is the day that the Lord has made; I will rejoice and be glad in it.” Humbled, I begin today with joy in my heart, singing this classic line, “I’m so excited! I just can’t hide it!”

Pardon my goofiness but it’s been a an incredibly long and trying journey to get here, and at times I truly thought the day may never come that I would see Arise Little Man on bookshelves, but I am so thrilled that I was wrong. While it is my name on this book, the story is at its core, a love letter to my two sons, Demi and Toby. They are my inspiration in all that I do and I hope this book reflects even a fraction of how much I love them.

When I became a mother, my whole life changed for many reasons. But as my boys started to get a little older, I realized that the treatment of our little boys by society wasn’t good enough. Enter my idea for Arise Little Man. On every page of this book is a daily affirmation targeted toward young boys.

  • “I am the king of my castle.”

  • I will always ask questions because there is no stupid question.”

  • I am caring. I am smart. I am handsome.”            

These are just a few of the phrases I instill in my sons every night while I’m putting them to bed. These are the daily affirmations that will instil in our young boys the confidence they need to grow into the kings they were born to be. Encourage them to ask questions, to never stop learning, to be strong—but know that it is okay to ask for help in their moments of weakness or vulnerability.

My greatest wish in publishing Arise Little Man is that it will start a movement that inspires the villages that raise our children to develop the habit of telling little boys and young men that it is okay to want to receive attention, feel loved and need encouragement. I want it to mark the beginning of society inviting little men to embrace the idea of reshaping masculinity.

I want to invite all parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, siblings, anyone with a little man in their life, to please purchase this book so we can lay down the foundation the youngest generation needs to grow up happy and healthy, knowing just how loved they are.
