"Spread the Light and inspire others to do the same." -- N. N. Light

In 2013, we wrote a mission statement and started a blog. We wanted to test a theory. Could one person (or in our case, one couple) use uplifting words to create change?

The answer is a resounding yes! People from all over the world responded to our short inspirational thoughts of the day, and our following grew. What started out as a few people promoting kindness and goodwill turned into a movement. In every city, there are Light-Bearers making a difference and we want you to join us.

Everyone needs inspiration. It doesn’t matter what spiritual belief you hold dear, you have the Light inside you. Kindness, compassion, empathy, encouragement are all attributes of the Light. In this book, you’ll find a ninety second inspirational thought for each day of the year. You’ll be inspiring people to spread the Light daily with our collection of inspirational thoughts. From giving of yourself to simply smiling, these are easy concepts for anyone to apply!

Excerpt:

Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world. – Harriet Tubman

 

I have a dream.  My dream is to be a writer, blogger and author.  My dream is to use words to uplift people and change the world.  I continue to work hard on my dream.  Achieving a dream doesn’t mean the work stops.

 

What is your dream?

 

No matter what your dream is or how far-fetched it may seem, you can make your dream come true!  According to Harriet Tubman, all you need is strength, patience and passion.  Sure, it takes a lot of work but let me tell you, it is worth it!

 

Can dreams change the world?  You bet!  Harriet Tubman is the woman who created the Underground Railroad.  She had a dream of her people being free.  Through her internal strength, she created a network of brave men and women who helped a multitude of slaves get to the North.  She didn't fear death because she had a dream and she was passionate about her dream.

 

Today, take a few moments and write down your innermost dreams.  Then outline a plan to make your dream come true.  List all the things you may encounter to prevent you from making your dream come true.  Finally, come up with a plan to defeat those obstacles and make your dream come true!

 

Your dreams can change the world!  Your internal strength, patience and passion will make it possible. 

Here's what readers/reviewers say:

"The inspirational quotes can be a tool to help all people live their best lives in 2018 and beyond. I plan to reread this throughout the year for daily inspiration myself." -- Mischenko, Goodreads 

"The husband and wife writing team of N.N. Light definitely found a perfect balance in how they wrote this book... from quotes across all walks of life (sports heroes, artists, motivational speakers, profits, philosophers, et al) to finding an interactive approach to applying the message to our every day lives." -- Jay, Goodreads 

"As is usually the case with such works, I found some parts particularly relevant, as if she was addressing some of my own thoughts and fears (synchronicity at work, I guess). My preferred way of reading it was to glance at it when I got frustrated at something or other in my own life." -- Award-Winning Author Nicholas Rossis, Goodreads 

"It’s filled with quotations, short stories, and reflections. It’s a wonderful way to start your day or end your evening." -- Lisa Reigel, Goodreads

"I liked the positivity and optimism of the author. I liked the layout of the book very much, and how she started each day with an encouraging quote. I enjoyed many of the messages. -- S. Daisy, Goodreads 

"If you’re looking for a devotional to uplift your spirits or simply want to jump-start your day with practical, down-to-earth advice, pick up this collection. -- Joanne Guidoccio, Amazon

Author: N. N. Light

Genre: Love poetry, poetry, relationship, love

 

Book Blurb:

Winner of the 2017 IAN Book of the Year – Poetry Finalist Award

I had been searching for love my whole life. It took the opening up of the world via technology for me to find my soulmate. Once I laid eyes on her, at the arrivals gate, I knew I was never going to let her go. The following is a collection of poems I wrote to my angel, from our first meeting up until our wedding day. I was working crazy hours as a chef and I had a long commute. I chose my commuting time to pen her a poem each day. These poems speak of our life, our challenges and our growth together…in every aspect they speak of our love.

May this book give someone the courage to let their special someone know how much they care for them and how much they mean to them. Saying I love you is a gift you can give many times a day.

Excerpt:

Our Love

 

Our love exists in so many ways

Even when parted I feel you

I long for your gaze

Knowing our love is true.

 

When in the heaven of your arms

I feel our love’s warmth surround me.

 

Your grace, beauty and charm

Leave me gasping breathless in serenity.

 

The pureness, sweetness and sincerity

Our so perfect love

Oft compels me to my knees

To thank our Lord above

For our love.

Here's what readers/reviewers say:

Thirsty for Water cover-min.jpg

Title: Thirsty for Water: A Short Story

Author: N. N. Light

Genre: Young Adult, ya fantasy, short story

 

Book Blurb:

Juliet can’t wait to graduate from high school and finally move on with her life. Five more days and she’s free. She gazes out the window while her history teacher, Mrs. Johnson, drones on about war, famine and lack of water in Africa.

A gong rings, startling Juliet out of her daydream. She looks around to see if it was one of her classmates pulling a prank when a little boy carrying a spear appears. Is he a ghost or something more? He pleads for her help and before she can argue, she is transported to a small village in Africa. History comes alive like never before and Juliet must decide how she can help Noko and his village before it’s too late.

Thirsty for Water tells the story of Africa and the need for water in an approachable way for children of all ages. A great learning tool for teachers, parents and libraries.

Excerpt:

​Juliet lifted her head and saw a little boy with a spear in his hand standing on Mrs. Johnson's desk.  Her eyes widened as he began to speak.


"Don't you find my country's plight troublesome?" He spoke perfect English and he looked no more than eight years old.  His dark skin and hair contrasted with his white tunic.  He had four painted red lines across his cheeks and his spearhead glinted as he aimed it at her.


She looked around but no one seemed to notice the boy.  She turned back to him and shook her head.  "This can't be real. I must be dreaming this. Wake up, Juliet."


The boy sighed and climbed down from the desk.  He walked towards her.  "I am real, as real as you, Juliet."


"How do you know my name?" She gasped and tried to pinch her arm.


"I know all about you.  My name is Noko." He paused and reached out to touch her arm. "Why are you hurting yourself like that?"


His hand felt cool on her arm and she stopped. If he was a ghost, I wouldn't be able to feel him.  This must be real... but how?  She reached up and touched his thumb with her index finger.  His skin was dry yet very real.

Book Trailer:

Book Blurb:

The day her grandfather died, Sally’s life changed forever.

Twenty-Two-year-old Sally Rayton returns to the family farm she deserted four years ago to bury her grandfather. Her plan: to settle her grandfather’s estate and return to her life in the city with her boyfriend, Trevor Mattson.

Her childhood friend, Jack Smith, has other ideas.

Jack convinces Sally to transform the farm into a brewery and fulfill her grandfather’s dream while keeping the Rayton Farm in the family. Sally works side-by-side with Jack while Trevor is hundreds of miles away in the city. The more time she spends with Jack, the stronger her feelings are for him. Sally’s torn between her new feelings for her best friend, Jack and her boyfriend, Trevor.

When Trevor shows up to propose to Sally right before Christmas and finds her in Jack’s embrace, she’s unsure which man she loves. Will it be her best friend and farmer, Jack, or will it be rich, successful Trevor? City or Country… only Sally’s heart knows what’s right and true.

Excerpt:

Jack looked where she pointed.

"Sally..." he began.

"Yes?"

"Are you planning on selling it when the farm's made a profit?"

Sally sighed.

He turned her body around, his gaze penetrating hers.

"I don't know," she whispered. "I know Grandpa wanted me to keep it in the family." She furrowed her brow. "I'm not a country girl; my heart belongs to the city."

"Hey, it's okay." He moved a step closer. "Farming is hard work and you have to love it to make it successful." He put a hand on her shoulder. "Don't beat yourself up for following your heart."

Sally winced.

"What?"

"Jack, I'm not sure what my heart wants. Part of me loves being here, carrying on the family name."

"But..." Jack raised an eyebrow warily.

"But I have a life in the city. I've almost finished my degree --"

"You have Trevor," Jack interrupted her. He shook his head.

"What's wrong with that? Yes, I have a life and a boyfriend in the city. I've told you a thousand times my dream is to open my own sidewalk cafe." She folded her arms over her chest. "Don't you want me to be happy, Jack?" Her voice sounded hurt, even to her own ears.

He closed his eyes and rubbed his forehead.

"This isn't going how I wanted it to." He glanced up at her. "I'm sorry, I didn't mean to imply anything. It's just --"

"What?" Sally cocked her head to one side.

The telephone rang inside.

"I have to go answer it. I'll be right back." She ran into the house.

"Hello?"

"Hi beautiful." Trevor.

"I found N. N. Light’s book refreshingly honest in its character development while still laying out those adult themes of desire, loss of control and jealousy." - L. Paul

"For a short story, this one is so well-developed and full of wonderful characters, it was a pleasure to read. " - K. Westrope
