  • Loved studying Philosophy, Religion, & Spirituality (started as a child)


  • Planned to attend a chiropractic school after finishing university – felt guided halfway through senior year to become a teacher instead, but still completed degrees


  • Did not want to become a “Public School Teacher” – trained to become a Montessori Teacher


  • While working at Montessori & Public Schools in Illinois, began working on a “New Curriculum” for schools & parents and turned it into a book originally self-published in 2007 – Thrust of Light: An Education Manifesto

  • Went to Australia to work at an International High School and later as a Youth Worker helping the most “at risk” students


  • Manuscript for the original book continued expanding to over 1,000 pages – too long for a single book and intended to then turn it into nine books


  • The “Yellow Book” was originally self-published in 2011 as an introductory book to the rest of the series – Thrust of Light: The Reformation of Civilization Through a Revolution in Education.

  • The “Yellow Book” was re-edited and self-published in 2019 as a “Revised Edition”.


  • Domain name was purchased. Trademark applications for the Thrust of Light name and Spear logo were initiated for Australia and in the Madrid System / WIPO. “Officially Founded” – 2019.  


  • Thrust of Light is now a “Sacred Activity” that focuses on helping Young People (conception – young adults), Parents, Schools, & anyone else who is desiring to work together and make important changes for the building of a “New World” – A Revolution for the Reformation of Civilization.
