What We Are All About

Golden Oak Press is passionate about creating books that inspire hope, resilience and positive self-worth for all ages. Our titles carry strong, timeless messages that help us to stand tall, to believe in our sense of purpose and to pick ourselves up when we stumble and fall. With a celebration of creativity, kindness and diversity, the core themes we champion are:

 

The unique strengths we all possess

 

Whoever, wherever we are, we all possess unique and diverse strengths. Once we discover and believe in these, we can 'walk our purpose', sharing these gifts with others, spreading a little joy along the way. Enthusiasm and happiness are contagious!

 

Our capacity for courage and determination

 

With mutual support, optimism and self-determination, creative solutions can be discovered and acted upon. In the face of adversity, these solutions enhance new effort, courage and the capacity to try again. 

 

Life as a creative adventure

 

Like every other human being, sometimes we will all stumble and fall. As we learn to perceive life as an adventure, showing ourselves and others understanding, compassion and self-kindness along the way, these life experiences catalyse the discovery of unexpected resources and new meaning. As we bounce back and share this adventure and the skills we have developed, so our life gradually evolves into a journey of new possibilities with a renewed and collective sense of purpose.
