"A Girl Named Charity" Book Launch Party!

Posted by Francine C. Still Hicks on June 3, 2015 at 10:05 PM Comments comments (0)

"Young Charity Still has one wish. She longs to be free, just like the guinea hen from her ancestral land of West Africa."

Francine C. Still Hicks author of “A Girl Named Charity” will be giving a story time for all children and parents attending the book launch party! There will be a book signing - hands on participation from the children – live music – door prize – balloons and home-style cookies!

“A Girl Named Charity” is based off Still Hicks’ ancestor, who escaped slavery twice. Her son, William Still, would become an agent and a famous conductor on the Underground Railroad. The book celebrates ancestors’ accomplishments while giving young readers a glimpse into the life of a slave girl.

This picture book for young children puts a personal face on the history of slavery. It teaches that whatever the circumstances in life—good or bad, joyful or painful—they can be overcome. It’s important to have, hope, faith, and belief in yourself that the spirit within will provide the strength to overcome any obstacle.

“I want the child reader to walk away with boldness in their heart and still be respectful to others.“For the adult reader, I want them to walk away remembering the child they once were – and the essence of that child still lives within!” - Francine C. Still Hicks

  •  

We will have a special guest appearance… "Charity!”

 

“Come and enjoy Charity’s story about the chickens and meet her!”

 

"Do you see that chicken coop up there, over by the stables where the horses live? I got in a heap of trouble there one day. Sara and I felt sorry for the poor chickens; all caged up and just waiting for their killing day. I told Sara, “I am going to set them free and they will fly far away, into the clouds.”

Our Little Regina Carries A Big Legacy..."Charity!"

Posted by Francine C. Still Hicks on June 9, 2013 at 3:00 PM Comments comments (4)
Our Universal Legacy Comes In Many Sizes!


Regina Pauro as Charity Still 


May 30, 2013 at St. Margaret Regional School - 9yrs. old.

From the mouths and actions of a child comes much truth. A child does not see color, a child does not feel time, a child wishes to be inspired and a child becomes the off shoot from the seeds of inspiration.


Interview with Regina Pascu:


"I felt the story of Charity should be told more and in other places. Telling this story of Charity, as a child I understand that life can be happy or sad. Don't underestimate other people, because they are different. My life's legacy is music, I love to sing." ~ Regina Pascu


I believe Regina has begun her legacy in music. Her words and voice has become a song to many. Her song  she sings is..."We Sing In Harmony As One!"


Thank You Regina!  And a special thanks to her mother Diane and father Bob!

Young Job & James Still Brothers As Individual Entities - A Single Mind... Love

Posted by Francine C. Still Hicks on May 11, 2013 at 4:20 PM Comments comments (2)

We are put on this earth by Providence to recognize our difference and in that difference we dance the dance of "harmony." When we covet another's movement in dance, we break the harmony of creative movement. Our native brothers and sisters have not forgotten their dance of Mother Earth and what she has offered. This blood runs through my veins of the Native  American, so I recognize the dance.

Dr. James Still at the age of 11 years old experienced the difference of dance with his best friend Young Job, a Native American. They became brothers of Providence and fed from the Mother Earth's bounty of difference.

Native American Wisdom

O ye people, be ye healed;

Life anew I bring unto ye.

O ye people, be ye healed;

Life anew I bring unto ye.

Through the Father over all

Do I thus.

Life anew I being unto ye.

The Celebration of A Union

Posted by Francine C. Still Hicks on May 15, 2012 at 4:10 PM Comments comments (4)


May 11, 2012 I had two engagements to attend in one day, both were an all day celebration in the Union of A Life. My choice was to go with my first obligation; "the wedding." This decision was difficult because the second was to attend "a funeral" of someone I loved dearly. I prayed and meditated to differentiate the two. The answer came, "Both are one and the same. In marriage there is a dying off of two separate people and becoming one in the union of marriage. A funeral is the sloughing off  the physical flesh, returning back to the union with God the Father..Our Creator. Both ceremonies are celebrating a new beginning at the reception table of, "A New Life!"

Throughout history music has been the creative vibration for healing the mind, body and soul. There comes a time when true, gifted musicians come together for a sitting. Transfering their energies from the universe and becoming one in harmony. With the exchange of colours, tones and vibrations of sound. These musicians come together, connecting through a soulful language, which we will call ..... "SESSIONS!"
