Wickedly Smart Women

May 4, 2022

Jodi Dee, M.Ed. always loved the magic and enchantment of children's stories and escaping into a different world. But as her own kids were growing up, Jodi noticed a gap in children’s literature: There were very few books about developing a higher consciousness.

And she set out to write a new kind of story for kids. Stories to teach children that they have the power to manifest whatever they desire.

Jodi is a mother of three and award-winning author. Her books and online resources promote growth and development, self-esteem and individuality, and social and emotional intelligence in children of all ages. Jodi’s work has been endorsed by renowned literacy experts Dr. Louisa Moats and Dr. Carol Tolman and used in literacy trainings around the globe.

On this episode of Wickedly Smart Women, Jodi joins Anjel to explore the gap in children’s literature around spirituality and self-empowerment. She discusses how she started channeling ideas for stories once her children were born and describes how her books help kids develop emotional intelligence (EI) and enter a state of higher consciousness. Listen in for Jodi’s insight around screen-free toys that support a child’s development and learn how to create an environment of self-discovery for the children in your life.
