“Nobody Don’t Love Nobody: Lessons on Love from the School
With No Name”
By Stacey Bess
The Lessons learned in Nobody Don’t Love Nobody extend far beyond homelessness. They are lessons on how to love, in giving and receiving, in the power love has to heal and to help. They are also lessons in how keeping silent or acting unkindly can affect a human being and how the damage done to one person can sometimes be passed on to the next generations. The stories that Mrs. Bess shares are stories of children who have loved her, taught her new depths of pain and compassion, and shown her how vital it is for each of us to take care of our own–to love those around us in our families and communities enough to make a small difference in their lives.
Stacey Bess has a bachelor’s degree in elementary education from the University of Utah. She began to record the stories of some of her students at The School With No Name not because she intended to publish a book, but because the stories are so profound. Her outstanding service has been recognized with a number of honors, including the national Jefferson Award, and the Delta Kappa Gamma Educators Award.
“Planting More Than Pansies: A Fable about Love”
Written by Stacey Bess
Illustrated by Melissa Ricks
Planting More Than Pansies is a resonant story of love, repentance, and rebirth. Based on true experiences, this moving account reminds us that when parents plant well, their children can weather the severe storms of life and return to a safe harbor even if they stray for a season. Even when a young teenager finds herself pregnant (as is the case here), she can find her way through life with the patient nurturing of caring parents.
Planting More Than Pansies offers hope that children will return to their teachings, and reminds them of the magic of faith as it leads them there.
This book will be available on re-release soon.
Mrs. Bess was also a contributor to the book
