“Theresa has a magical way of opening our eyes to view the world in ways that are often missed. The uniqueness of each individual, the transforming beauty in everyday nature, and the opportunities for finding or creating meaningful work are just a few of the things that come to life in her presence. Prepare to see your life in a new way – to see beyond the ordinary, and to find more fulfillment, purpose and profits as a result.” Dan Miller, author 48 Days to the Work You Love
If you accept the challenge of schooling your little “hyperactive wonder”, become a fan of Theresa Lode whose zany perspectives will help transform your seeming chaos into a celebration of the diversity of God’s creation. Chris Davis, owner of Homeschool Travel and the former Elijah Company.
Theresa is a humor writer whose books have touched quite a few people. She is very active in helping encourage and enlighten parents who find that the conformity systems we put our kids through as a culture do not work for every child, and can be destructive to some. You can’t hang out with the Lode’s and not get in some good laughs while being encouraged through some of the difficult stretches of your journey. Wayne Jacobsen of The God Journey and Windblown Media of (the original publisher of The Shack.) Read the rest of his comments here.
Here’s what they’re saying regarding my presentation, Labels are for Soup Cans:
Theresa Lode has a wit that will keep you laughing while she reaches deep into your reality with new insight about how to view labeling, child rearing, education and family life. She is a modern version of Erma Bombeck with wisdom women need to hear in today’s busy world. Joanne Miller, author, “I Wanna Be ME!”
Theresa Lode was more than just an entertaining speaker at an event—she is truly genuine. She shared endearing stories of her own family in a way that not only made you want to know them better (and hear more funny stories), but also made you feel as if she were talking to a dear friend. She shares her heart in a humorous and accepting way, addressing oftentimes negative labels with real understanding and compassion, embracing the people behind the labels and the beauty that makes them unique. Ashley Logsdon, wife, mother and Chief Inspiration Officer, 48 Days
Theresa is the next Erma Bombeck! I love her writing, her speaking and cannot wait for the world to find her.She will stimulate your mind, make you laugh and hit your hot buttons all in one talk. You ‘ll leave refreshed, humored, motivated and inspired. Deby Dearman, Songwriter (you may recognize one of the Dearman’s songs:”We Bring the Sacrifice of Praise”) Photographer
And what professionals and parents are saying regarding A Parent to Parent to Chat on ADHD:
I am a counselor in private practice. I have also been a school counselor. In both of those positions, I have dealt with parents of ADD kids who are in despair. I would be very interested in pointing them in the direction of another parent in the trenches. I would also be interested in recomending your new resource.

I enjoyed reading your eBook on A Parent to Parent Chat on ADHD. You certainly covered most of the major aspects of dealing with these challenging kids. I thought your writing style was easy to read and the bits of humor helped the reader to see the struggles you had dealing with the “professionals…Overall I feel your book can be a valuable resource for parents who need to get up to speed to get their children help. Your greatest asset may be in helping parent to be in the drivers seat to guide the treatment of their child.
