We want to make a difference in our community by creating a small shift in the thinking process. There seems to be a focus on bullying guidelines rather than teaching the skills required to build relationships. We want to help our children become great citizens and responsible adults resulting in a strong and connected community.

Our thoughts drive our words and actions. Positive thoughts allow us to take in more information and see more broadly – view the big picture. They give us more creativity and decision-making capabilities. Positive thoughts optimize health and well-being and improve coping skills.

“Peace Factors training was interactive and enlightening. It provided useful tools and practical applications to use in my personal and professional life. Beverly and Kathy were professional and passionate about building relationships, increasing effective and positive communications, and collaborating to build a strong community. I wish every organization could participate in the Peace Factors workshop... memorable tools for everyday interactions!”
