About Katie Wood

Katie Wood is the busy mom of four young children, a business owner, and the proud wife of a hard-working fireman. As a former teacher, she understands how important it is for children to have a growth mindset and learn the essential life skills that will empower them and help them live a purposeful life filled with courage, gratitude, forgiveness, and compassion. She wrote A Simple Seed when her search for a kids’ journal encompassing life lessons, positive self-talk, gratitude, a daily challenge, and jokes came up empty. With assistance from her family, friends, and an online community, she created this morning journal of 100 powerful lessons that help children practice healthy habits and develop the strong roots that they’ll have for life. She believes there’s nothing more powerful than investing in the next generation to prepare them for the unknown future ahead.

A Simple Seed has been a great conversation-starter: a new topic every morning to improve mindset, a place for grati­tude, and a joke to make it light. These are things that we as adults are just now learning. Can you imagine the impact if we can instill these positive practice? It is so powerful!
