I wrote an ebook dedicated to Water for South Sudan, Inc. in hopes of raising money to help Salva Dut’s teams drill for water. I have given over 100 FREE downloads from Smashwords, since publishing it. I am set to donate my book proceeds, but since I have not had any hard sales, I am pulling the ebook for editing.
Thanks everyone who downloaded my first ebook. It makes me feel special!! I will leave it up for FREE until March 7th.
My friend, Danielle Betts, told me about Salva’s story and the WFSS non profit. I was grateful she shared his story with me. I was touched deeply by Salva’s story of living the life of a “Lost Boy” of Sudan to becoming a local and international hero.
I dedicated my 1st ebook to Salva Dut. It is a goal for me to one day visit South Sudan and assist a team in drilling for water. It would be a beautiful goal realized. My ebook is titled Drop by Drop We Fill the Pot, an Ebook by G.E. Cooper
I highly recommend reading ‘A Long Walk to Water’ by Linda Sue Park. Her book is excellent and is highly acclaimed for young readers. It is the story of Salva’s life while he was a boy struggling to stay alive to becoming a leader with a true smile.
Our new website domain name RISE UP AND GLOW.com comes from Gareth Icke’s song Gareth Icke ‘Beat Up’
RISE UP AND GLOW <3 is the chorus in the song and inspired me to name our website after it!
THANK YOU GARETH! Maybe someday we can watch the band perform it LIVE! That would be super sweet!
Our upcoming website and show will document the transformations we are experiencing and creating as family of three. I am currently eating predominately raw food and have been thriving for five months since giving up cigarettes, coffee, and alcohol.( Big thank to Joe Bill Schirtzinger for helping me bring these changes in with the least amount of pain and suffering :D)
I began moving my body after 20 years of inactivity and found out it feels great to be able to breathe and move again! I got' BEAT UP' and now I have 'Cleaned Up' so I can 'Rise Up and Glow'!
We currently receive SNAP food benefits and it is my goal to be self sufficient and grow over 50% of our daily produce. I see my children reaching more for raw foods and this makes me very happy as a mom. I don't have to bribe or beg my kids to try something new or drink green juice.
I am asking for small donations of $5 or more to help supplement our produce costs until we can generate income from our site and from self employment.
It is in the works for me to become a grower and vendor at the Austin Farmer' Market in Minnesota! I am excited to do this! I need to come up with $80 for a vendor application fee in the coming weeks!
If you would like to support us in helping make this a reality, please contact me! Gretchen Cooper
We are preparing for a splendid spring with a lot to learn and lots grow. We invite you to RISE UP AND GLOW with us!
Lots of love >@studiocoupe <<My twitter handle

Short video update from Hitch. Follow his spirit partner quest at http://www.ibelievepainting.com and on his facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/yohitch
In brief, Hitch got strong messages in his meditations to contact artist Android Jones and asked to create a spirit partner painting in hopes she will see it and the two will find eachother.
How will Hitch determine he has found his spirit partner? Will he conduct interviews or go on a year or more of dates to find her? Will the two meet without her seeing the painting? Will she look exactly like the woman in the painting? What soul recognition will take place when the two finally meet?
No matter what happens, Hitch has already proved he is willing to trust spirit guidance and follow through with the requests to make it all real! I think this is a good lesson for all of us. TRUST and have faith in yourself and your guides.
Best wishes to all of you searching for your spirit mate xxx
I am going to be hosting a new segment “The Spiritual Shortbus” with Driver Joe Bill Schirtzinger!
I have been riding the Spiritual Shortbus for many many years and it is time for me to move forward with my spiritual evolution to upgrade my consciousness while I am in body and have the opportunity to do so!
Joe Bill will guide and assist me publicly on air through our sessions together. I honestly have no idea what to expect, but I am willing to be an example to show the types of spiritual modalities Joe Bill utilizes to assist with spiritual, personal transformations.
We love all types of people. We are each in our own stages of development. It takes all kinds to make the world go around. We choose to use humor to point out our need to upgrade the consciousness if we are to be accepting and loving toward ourselves and others.
“The Spiritual Shortbus” segments are about accepting ourselves as we are, seeing ourselves clearly, and being willing to recognize the need for personal and collective upgrades in our spiritual understandings while taking active steps to bring about the changes we want to experience in our lives.
It is going to get intense for me, especially allowing my personal transformations to be made public. I am willing to do it because I love being on the planet at this time. If my public journey on “The Spiritual Shortbus” helps one person I can say it was worth it!
Check out Joe Bill’s site to learn more about his work http://lifewisdomcorner.com/wordpress/2013/09/23/introducing-arcanum-mysticism-a-la-mode/
I will update when we are ready to begin our travels together on air!
Buckle up folks! It’s gonna be a fun ride
