“The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are… You are the hero of your own story.”
Joseph Campbell

Now that you know me and some of the two-leggers who helped shape my dream, we’d love to get to know you too, so here are some fun games my family and team have played over the years to get to know one another better so that we could help fight for each other’s dreams.


1. Make

Make your own CATCH-M. Here are some of ours:

My kids with the Holle Twins having fun with their CATCH-M creations!
Moms having fun with CATCH-M
Us MOMS remembering and celebrating that we can catch CATCH-M too!

Draw your CATCH-M in the dirt, imaginary in the wind, on paper, socks, shirts, with paint, crayons, ink, whatever you think. There is no right or wrong, just the fun of creation as you realize how important a smile can be to achieving your dream.

2. Play

Write it, draw it, sing it, act it out, and as you do, dare to believe it!

My dream to write a book began with this game, and YES! My dream came true. Now we want that for you! So play “BUILD YOUR DREAM BOARD – YOUR LIFE’S TREASURE MAP.” 

3. Write


I used to perform “THE WRITE A BOOM SHAKE SONG” alone. Then I got brave and played it with my four-legged friends, and finally with my family so that I would not give up on my dream.

My sweet dogs even wrote their own BOOM SHAKE SONGS. Here’s Yeti’s (the small white dog’s) song that he sang all the time while racing and chasing balls over and over again, until YES! He finally wins the race and gets to the ball first. His song is written under the photos:

Dog Fun
“Wuff! Wuff! Look at me, my name is YETI!
Dog Dreams of Racing Fun
And YES! I can be… The fastest dog on the street!”

4. Create

Create your own “Termite Tricks” like the termites did in DREAM BIG to have some fun and encourage others so that we all keep fighting for our dreams together!

5. Share

Share a list of your favorite books, looks, foods, moods, color, toys, games, songs to sing, places to seek, and whatever you think can inspire you. We’d love to get to know you.

Most important – Share stories about your dreams coming true or stories of other two-legged, four-legged heroes, who inspire you. Include anything – photos, videos, drawings, whatever you think!

Please share it all along with your CATCH-M, your Dreams, songs, codes, notes, riddles, and whatever else you think

Share them on social media with a with a #WHOOSHWHAM #CATCHM so that we can build a community that celebrates the thrill of fighting, sharing, and achieving our dreams together. Hopefully, “WE” can build a better world filled with love, fun, friends, and family just like Termite did!

We’d love to hear from you.

Thank you newfound friends for sharing, and know whatever you do, dreams do come true!
