Creator Profile

Hi fellow writing and education enthusiasts,

Welcome to my site that nurtures our natural desire to learn, to share our knowledge with other growing beings, and to create and write.

My name is Jody Dontje and I am currently studying a Bachelor of Education. My love of words started when my father used to read to me as a little girl. Those moments, of being close to a loved one as a new world is brought to life with every read aloud word, are purely magical. A couple of years ago, I was in a three person band playing violin and keyboard, and writing songs that we performed in front of hundreds of people. Writing in all forms, whether it be picturebook, poetry, short story, young adult fiction, non-fiction, persuasive article, or music and song lyric, can have a strong power over others. Words can educate, connect emotionally, persuade, inspire, muse, motivate, and even change a human being.

I believe that we are all born with a natural desire to succeed in this forever changing world. As we grow this desire transforms into passions, and these passions are what drive us to succeed. Lets nurture these passions, and let the nature of writing, learning and sharing our knowledge through teaching take over. We are social creatures of the world, so lets grow together and share our passion of writing and education.

 

Sincerely Jody

  17. Jody, I’m new to the blogging world (and a late, reluctant newcomer to most technology popularized after the late 1980s). I saw that you apparently stumbled across my blog (www.theyouthforum.net) and gave it a digital thumbs up. Not sure how that happened, but if I read that correctly, thank you so much. Likewise, I look forward to following your work. It looks very interesting. Thanks and all the best, Ken

    • Jody Dontje says:

      Sincerely Jody

    Your blog is pretty amazing and inspirational. I do believe that we are we are social creatures of the world and we’re wildly unpredictable, which can be good or bad.

    • Jody Dontje says:

      Hi Gregory,

      Thank-you for taking the time to stop by and write such a sincere comment, very sweet! There is a constant battle between it being good or bad, so we need to ensure we do our best to help others and this world.

      Sincerely Jody
