Coach Teresa here.  Recently I received happy news from dear Yolande Barial; she said: “Just to let you know that I am now officially a part of the Tracy Press. Photo and all.  Woo hoo!!!!”

Here’s a recent article from Yolande’s column:

Her Voice:  Invest in teens’ transition sooner rather than later


Yolande Barial's energy reminds me of Oprah's.


Who is Just-A-Mom speaking on purpose about God, children, life and love? Poet / Essayist / Author / Anthology Contributor / Columnist Yolande Barial!

Almost two years ago, Yolande was one of the talented writers who helped me test-market my workbook Build Your Name Beat the Game: Be Happily Published.

She said: “Coach Teresa, my brain has been on fire since our meeting. There is so much I want to do with my blog and the ideas keep on coming. Thank you!” Yolande Barial, a sensually spiritual writer who knows that with God all things are possible! A contributing author in If Women Ruled the World and Oakland’s Neighborhoods

August is “Happiness Happens Month” and Yolande’s birth-month.  Happy birthday/birthmonth wishes to my friend who has been a voice-of-wisdom “Don’t let anyone’s gossiping taint your relationship with anyone else.”

A thousand blessings to Yolande!

What Are Some Simple Yet Big Things Parents & Guardians Can Do For Children and Teens?

In the lead story of the Opinion Column in Tracy Press on January 28, 2011, Yolande Barial (a great mom, a fabulous poet, a dear friend) has this to say about how she drops off her children at parties:

Her Voice: Children are a parental responsibility

New Year’s Day, my 15-year-old son and his girlfriend were invited to a party at the home of one of their school friends in Lathrop. I had never been to the home before, and neither had my son or his girlfriend.

The closer we got to the area . . .

As Writing Career Coach Teresa, I ask that writers pay attention to the “counter” (number of views) on the Tracy Press link.  Yolande Barial’s article attracted 929 online readers since January 28, 2011 (in less than two-weeks’ time), and, this is in addition to the readers of the physical newspaper.  Brava!

“Ah, there’s no place like Mom,” says Teresa LeYung Ryan, author of Love Made of Heart.
