Be Like a Butterfly

10 Steps to Help You Make Changes in Your Life - WORKBOOK

Jessica wrote this book to help anyone wanting to make major changes in their life but may be having problems getting it done. She chose this title because the life of the butterfly was instrumental in inspiring her to compare the 10 steps to the stages a butterfly goes through. These 10 steps will show how to organize the plans for your changes using the similarities of the four stages of the butterfly’s life, from laying eggs being like planting seeds of ideas for the changes to the adult butterfly completing its metamorphosis as being like you succeeding in making changes. 

The objective of this book is to help you learn how to plan changes needed for a particular desire or dream such as a change in career, a relationship change, or even bad habit changes. 

Many agree that it would be wise to heed a proverb given by the wise King Solomon that says, “The plans of the diligent surely lead to success, but all who are hasty surely head for poverty.” (Proverbs 21:5)  So to cut down on your stress, try my 10 steps of planning out your next big change. It is set up as a workbook for you to answer questions that make you think.

Learn About Monarch Butterflies in One Sitting

This book is all about monarch butterflies but is mostly a call out to everyone who wants to continue to eat fruits, vegetables, coffee, nuts and many other items that depend on plant life. The monarch butterfly is a pollinator of all the plants of these foods. However, the monarchs are dying off due to pesticides killing the milkweed plant that they lay eggs on and the milkweed is the only food source that the monarch caterpillar will eat.

What can you do to help? There are several options that you can read about in the book that is sold on Amazon.com as an eBook, audio, or a paperback called Monarch Butterfly 101. Click here to see it.

Butterfly Awareness Flyer

The below flyer was created by Jessica Dumas to be circulated around her community and passed on to others to circulate it in their communities to let everyone know what they can do to help save our butterflies. One third of our food needs pollination. Without it we won’t have coffee, nuts, fruit, veggies, and meat from animals that eat plants. The flyer explains other reasons why butterflies are so important. We hope you can do what you're able to do for the butterflies.
