Annie Burnside

Annie is a mom of three, Soul Nurturer, and Author of Soul to Soul Parenting

How many children do you have and what are their ages?  Three children ages 14, 13 and 10

How did you come up with the idea for your book? Officially, I have been a soul nurturer for over six years. I created it as a career as soul nurturing has always been the most natural aspect of who I am. A soul nurturer helps others awaken to their own truth in all aspects of life by providing the tools and encouragement to look more closely at their inner world. She assists others in viewing their life from an expanded perspective by helping them to remember their divine, creative, intuitive, eternal nature and how to integrate this knowing into their life choices. A soul nurturer’s primary role is to inspire others to listen to the voice of their own soul so that direct divine connection can become fully accessible within daily reality.

What’s your favorite parenting tip?  Utilize everyday life—such as friendships, nature, mealtimes, music, movies, and much more—as the perfect curriculum and forum to teach your children powerful, universal principles such as connectedness, self-love, presence, and forgiveness.

How do you get your family to eat healthy food and/or exercise?  We try to be conscious in all areas of life including physical health. We remind our children daily that they are responsible and accountable for their choices and that every choice has a natural consequence. We create all shape our own reality through our thoughts, words, deeds, priorities, perspectives, beliefs and choices. Kids are never too young to begin to understand in digestible bites that they are actually captains of their own ship.

How do you recharge your batteries?  Our family needs a daily balance of interior and exterior focus. This is a top priority in our house. The exterior world is wonderful, but the interior world is just as valid. Quiet downtime, meditation, relaxation and non-doing are very much valued in our family. For us, busyness must be balanced with contemplation and reflection.
