Why did you become a part of Inspiration Bible: My heart lit up when Emily called me to share her idea of “The Inspiration Bible”. Her vision was indeed inspiring. I jumped at the chance to be involved in a project that would make a positive difference in so many people’s lives. Story is such a powerful medium and metaphor can transform a person’s life at a deep level. True change and transformation only happens in the heart and this book, with 365 heartfelt stories shared, is one of the most powerful ways for people in need of inspiration to recognize the power and potential that resides inside them.

Louise Gilbert is passionate about education and its place in our world. Over the last 17 years, she has worked internationally with thousands of educators, schools, parents and students.

Louise is regarded as an innovator and has broadened the parameters of education with her cutting edge, holistic approach to teaching and learning. She asks big questions – ones that at this time in human history are critical. What is a real education?What is it we really want for our children? For our educators? Ourselves? For our loved ones? And ultimately, for humanity? She says, “It’s really very simple. Education is the business of human development, first and foremost. We must remember that we are developing human beings here.

Helping them to discover themselves, their gifts, their passions, what they want to share with the world, who they truly are. Then everything else will fall into place. Students will be happier emotionally, they’ll do well academically, teachers will have less behavioral issues in class, less stress and ultimately our future generations will be prepared – emotionally, intellectually, spiritually – for overcoming the great challenges of our time.”

Louise holds a Bachelor of Arts/Law and a Graduate Diploma in Education. Louise is a Certified Master Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Time-Line Therapy and Hypnotherapy.
