Speaking Engagements

Scarlett Lewis, mother of Jesse Lewis, speaks worldwide spreading her message to choose love.

Openly discussing her journey, Scarlett describes how Jesse’s message has been put into a simple formula of how to choose love – embracing a deeper meaning of gratitude, forgiveness and compassion. She believes that with the Choose Love Movement you can:

  • Face the impossible
  • Find courage when you think you have none
  • Choose a loving thought over an angry one
  • Cultivate faith instead of fear.

Scarlett addresses a need that has been lacking in the educational experience, social and emotional learning, SEL, and the Choose Love Enrichment Program which has been created to provide educators with free tools to teach children that they have the power to choose a loving thought over an angry one.
