READY FOR A GREAT WEEKEND?!

Welcome to GISH PICKS: CURATED CULTURE FOR KIDS AND ADULTS! I’m Sarah Gish, an info-preneur and culture sleuth who finds the unusual and cool in Houston each and every week. Join me as I shine a light on Houston gems and unique Houston fun. I love Houston and want to show you the people and the places and the events that make it great (see more about my wishes for that here). And I want to make it easy for you so I sort through the cornucopia of events offered in our wonderful city each weekend and I PICK only three each for families and adults to recommend to you. That way you’ll be all set when Friday hits!

Speaking of Friday, please join me for my weekly PICKS-ON-WHEELS in my Phoenix Rising Art Car. Each Friday at noon, I’ll be at a different cool place – meeting people, introducing what they do and their mission, and wandering around. It’s my way of bringing GISH PICKS to life! Tune in on Fridays here. It is TOTALLY fun and I’d love for you to see them and join in by liking and commenting! AND – lucky you, I’ll be posting them here as my weekly VIDEO PICK when I can.

We are the most diverse city in the country, not only because of the over 100 languages spoken here every day, but also because of the diversity of events offered and places to hang our (cowboy) hats. Please be sure to tell your friends about GISH PICKS – the more people who know about these unique cultural events, the more unique cultural events the organizations will offer us. Please also tell the orgs that I sent you. My business grows by word of mouth so I thank you for your continued support. Here’s to many more years of GISH PICKS!

A note about the social media for GISH PICKS: please LIKE our Facebook page for family PICKSand our Facebook page for adult PICKS. Be sure to click “See first” in the dropdown menu on the LIKE button so you won’t miss a post! And please follow me on Instagram and Twitter. You’ll get all my CULTURE PICKS and more that way. And there’s one last way to stay in touch with me! I organize many events, such as labyrinth walks and workshops, so if you’d like to be informed of those before everyone else, please subscribe to my Gish Creative list here.


THOUGHTS FOR THIS WEEK

I am now presenting weekly IGNITE TIPS on my IGNITE YOUR LIFE Facebook page so check out this week’s VIDEO PICK for more information and be sure to see the tips every Monday morning at 9am. It’s my mission to help people ignite their lives and I have a gazillion ways to do that, besides my 12 Ways to Ignite Your Life Daily so I’ll be sharing my ideas with you. I hope you’ll check them out and share them with others!

Have a great weekend and please love one another, please share this, and please – go IGNITE YOUR LIFE!

WHAT'S YOUR PURPOSE WORKSHOP (February 4) and GUIDANCE SESSIONS (Mondays) and LABYRINTH WALKS (Second Saturdays)

Are you wondering what you should be doing with your life? We can help you! Gandhari Bouligny and I will be presenting What’s Your Purpose? at Body Mind & Soul on Sunday, February 4 from 2-4pm. It’s a great way to re-focus your life in only 2 hours! Plus it’s fun – we dance, you create, and you’ll get your astrological information. You will walk out with a personal mission statement and a much better understanding of who you are.

I offer intuitive guidance sessions every Monday at Body Mind & Soul ‪from 10am-5:30pm and I would love to help Y-O-U. Let’s connect if you are wondering what to do with your life, whether it’s in the personal realm or the professional arena (or both). I use my intuitive skills and my many years of studying people to help you FOCUS – on you, your dreams and desires, and how to manifest them. And if you don’t know what your passions are, I will guide you in discovering them. Finding your personal mission will exponentially increase your ability to succeed in life while also attracting an abundance of joy. Sessions are $100/hour and $50/thirty minutes and take place at the store – 7951 Katy Freeway. Call them at ‪713.993.0550 to book an appointment.

And I’m pleased to announce that my Second Saturday Labyrinth Walks will continue at the Hines Center for Spirituality and Prayer in downtown Houston at 500 Prairie Street. My next walk will be on Saturday, February 10, 9am-11am. Free parking is available in the Christ Church Cathedral garage at 559 San Jacinto Street; bring your ticket in to get it validated.
