Kindness is Golden – Macy Gilson
Macy Gilson speech language pathologist, disability advocate and children’s author. She lives in Ft. Worth Texas with her darling husband, Brandon, and adorable black lab puppy, Miller! By way of her job and career, Macy has cultivated a passion for not only treating people’s impairments, but sharing their stories. She is someone who comes to mind when you hear “go the extra mile”, and we are so honored to have her on the show!
In Her Own Words…
“I believe the truest, deepest, most supportive communities are found with those who are willing to be vulnerable.”
To Macy, it doesn’t matter if she is able to help a kid with their “S” sound if they don’t get invited to a birthday party. As she has helped countless people of all ages, backgrounds, abilities and disabilities over the course of her career, she has gotten to know them on a deeper level and cares greatly about them as human beings. And so Macy discovered her calling by sharing stories told by vulnerable people who wish to be heard, seen, understood and loved. She uses her platform to share stories that raise interest and awareness about important things. She’s kind of amazing.
Kindness is Golden
Macy recently had her first Children’s Book, “Kindness is Golden” published. It is the first in a series of books that promotes inclusivity and kindness in a classroom full of all different types of kids, and we cannot wait to see what’s next! The book is a beautiful exploration of differences without being blatant about them, and encourages problem solving and gets kids thinking how they would handle a certain situation that might cause someone to be left out. As moms with little kids, we of course rate this book FIVE STARS, and hope you will all add it to your collections!
