Hi there! My name is Peachkin Doubleknot. A bit strange huh? But probably not so much as if I was named Billy or Joey, Betty or Sue which are the kind of names our grandparents were stuck with. Yep! Peachkin has quite a ring to it, a real attention grabber.  But so much for my name, let’s talk about important things. 

Peachkin Doubleknot is a collection of children’s stories to help kids make their way through the many challenging issues they face growing up.  

Book one, "All About Black and White", skin color discrimination.

Book two, "All About Me & Maybe You", growing up in a not-so-perfect family.

Book Three, "All About Carson". Understanding children with physical and mental challenges.

Book four, Answers questions about, "Where Did I Come From", a look at the different teachings between Science and Religion

Book five, "All About Sammy" judging children on perceived abilities Adults tend to minimize the effects of these and other issues on children. The truth is, children often deal with these issues by themselves, without the experiences, maturity, and support that most adults have. Hopefully, Peachkin can be that support through the long years of childhood.

 

A Small Sampling From:

All About Me & Maybe You

Now families come in every size and color, and sometimes it can change all around depending on all kinds of things. Take my family for instance. If you only had one parent at home, once you were old enough to realize that a family normally came with two parents, a mom and a dad, you begin to wonder how you got short changed. Sometimes it is because of someone dying.That’s really a  hard one. You spend your life wondering what it might have been like if that hadn’t happened. Or like me, where my dad left before I was born. Some of you might not even know who your dad is. Not so unusual these days. Most animals are more responsible than a lot of people. And yet you still wonder what was more important than you. Did they ever think about you, why do I have this hole in my life that can’t be filled even if I am lucky enough to have that hole occupied by someone else. The hole is still there.

And then there is my favorite one. So-called adults that have their own lives so screwed up that you have to fill in as the responsible person even though you’re just a kid. I have a friend that is eight. She takes care of her younger brother and sister because mom is strung out on drugs and dad is in jail for hurting mom. Go figure. If I acted like that I would be grounded for life! But for some reason, us kids just seem to know better, like we were born with it. I guess it takes growing up before you can really mess up your life. Life is short, so they tell me. But it can’t be too short or you and I wouldn’t exist, right? I just wish it wouldn’t be so hard sometimes. It makes me cry. I don’t know why, it just does.

All About Black & White
by Dennis Fluhrer

Dedicated to my grand and great grandchildren that add color and an international flair to my family. The Peachkin Doubleknot series is designed to deal with the, not so comfortable subjects, of growing up in a less than perfect World.


Children have an innate sense of right and wrong, what makes sense and what doesn’t. Peachkin simply points out, what, to them is obvious. If we adults could only remember to practice the innocence, love and compassion of childhood.

All About Cars0n
by Dennis Fluhrer

All About Carson is written for my grandson. Of all people born, you would think he would be the last person to have something to laugh about, and yet he does. The blessings, we have had as a family, is being introduced to other families with “Special Needs Children.”

 

It wasn’t that long ago that such children were left to die or hid away in an institution for life. For many of these families, the hard part is when they are no longer able to meet the needs of these special kids and are forced to find other options. We need to honor those parents for the untold hours and special support required to care for these amazing children.

 

It is my hope that you might reach out and get to know one of these special children and their families. You will be glad you did!

All About Sammy
by Dennis Fluhrer

Team sports, for kids, is a wonderful thing. But sometimes the adults become so involved with winning they lose sight of the bigger picture, the kids. The year I volunteered to couch my son’s baseball team was a real eye opener. Most of the teams had been pre-selected long before the season ever started, packing certain all-star teams with the most experienced boys. By the time I volunteered, the only players left were the ones no one else wanted. I have a special place in my heart for Sammy. When I was about his age my mom and I also lived in an old motel. It’s amazing how life can come back around and meet us, when we least expect it.

Where Did I Come From?
by Dennis Fluhrer

There is a war going on for the hearts and minds of God’s children on Earth. A war that uses the very concept of science to dis-prove the very existence of God. The same science that God has used to create all of us and Worlds without end. “Where Did I Come From?” presents a plan that offers an alternative to the iffy science that is polluting the minds of both children and adults. True science is always open to ideas, that may or may not agree with the current understanding. When your objective is to dis-prove something, you are no longer looking for truth.

There are certainly different beliefs regarding this plan and yet the eternal nature of a plan is represented in all beliefs that go beyond the here and now. There will come a time when we will all share the same understanding, but until then, let’s at least join in the battle to promote the understanding that we are all children of God and that He does have a plan.

It is my hope, “Where Did I Come From” will aid you in offering an alternative to what is being taught by the world.
