Rachel Thoene knows what it’s like to pick up broken pieces. As a site administrator at two alternative schools for at-risk students in an urban school district in Sacramento, California, she helps students put the pieces of their broken lives back together and discover success where there was only self-doubt. As a mother, she finds new beauty in the hearts of her two children, Ian and Jessie. "Every person we come into contact with has the potential to be a beautiful and valuable work of art," Rachel says. The inspiration for The Vase of Many Colors began as an email to a friend who was struggling with how to relate to her teenage son. When the story further developed, Rachel realized that the underlying message appealed to the experiences of adults and children alike.
