By God’s grace and her continued determination, it is certain to grown exponentially incorporating each little Robinson as they grow. jann teaches their children that “I can’t” is base and limiting, stifling growth and creativity. She teaches them to say, “I need help” as the proper response to situations conjuring temporary frustration. As children we are taught, “no man is an island to himself.” jann finds this truth as one to grow by. jann believes that our visions are not for us to accomplish all on our own. jann says, “Incorporate others of like mind, vision, and purpose to make your collective dreams and imaginations reality.”
jann also teaches the children about sharing, she shares the South with everyone she meets. jann wants to let the whole world know about The South and everything that makes Southernness more than trend and a way of living here, but applicable to any space and place beckoning a ‘front porch swing with a glass of sweet tea’ atmosphere.
