The Tale of a Caterpillar with a Butterfly-shaped Heart


"Oh dear, Oh dear! What if I never have wings?"

As Momma Monarch searched for the perfect place to lay her precious egg, she sang powerful words, instilling in her Little One the confidence and knowing she would need to face each phase of her journey of becoming all she was meant to be.

Snuggled in her cozy shell, Little One dreamed she was flying. As she dreamed, she grew and grew and pushed and stretched until she broke through the limitations of what had once been her comfort zone—only to face a big, huge, scary unknown. Imagine her disappointment when she caught sight of her reflection in a morning drop of dew, and she didn’t look anything like the creature in her dreams.

With each overwhelming step along the way, Little One found the strength and courage to keep moving forward by remembering the words Momma Monarch had sung—words that gave her an identity and an unshakeable knowing that she was meant for more.

She was born to fly!

Empower the children in your life (and perhaps the child within) to remember who they are and the shape of their heart.

Founder of Tales for the Hungry Heart, Theddee Rheyshelle is a songwriter and storyteller, serving up  Tasty Tidbits, Nutritious Nuggets, and Hearty Helpings of Truth, Hope, and Love for children, the child within, and grown-up kids.

Theddee Rheyshelle lived in constant emotional pain until her ever-hungry heart discovered that her suffering was simply an injured part of herself crying out for healing and that she had the power to set herself free. At nearly forty years of age, she embarked on the journey of healing her life by learning to be still and know Truth, ultimately returning her heart to Love one Upset at a time. After years of setting herself free and helping others as a pastor and life coach, she became conscious of the horrific trauma she had experienced at the tender age of four. Theddee began the difficult, yet rewarding task of reparenting herself by writing stories and songs for Little One, her inner child. Their healing journey together is proof that it is never too late to give our younger me everything it needs to become all we are meant to be.
