Designer Discipline for Wellness Children’s Book Series


Designer Discipline for Wellness Series: Kori Faces Weekend Fun 

In partnership with McBride Collection of Stories, Designer Discipline presents, Kori Faces Weekend Fun. The first installment in the children’s wellness series, Designer Discipline for Wellness, available now here!


Kori is excited to finally try out for her third grade track team on Monday, but there is a dilemma…Kori faces weekend fun.

At a Friday track team tryout meeting, Coach told everyone they must maintain self- discipline to follow a balanced diet over the weekend in order to do well at Monday’s tryouts.

  • Does a balanced diet mean that Kori cannot enjoy any or her favorite treats all weekend?

  • Oh no…but what about Kareem’s big roller skating birthday party Saturday!?

  • Does this mean Kori can’t have any of her favorite cake…birthday cake!? 

  • How difficult is it to maintain a balanced diet?

  • Does self- discipline mean no fun? 

  • How will Kori maintain self-discipline through the fun weekend ahead?

Find out these answers and more as we follow Kori on this weekend tale of challenge and choices.

Kori just may find out that maintaining self-discipline is not so difficult…especially with the help of a mother who is a wellness coach; an awesome best friend; and a precocious little sister, who although annoying, loves her big sister.

The journey through Kori’s weekend is fun for children and adults, and includes a great healthy recipe for “Opiemeal” that families can have fun making together!

Kori Faces Weekend Fun is the first story in the Designer Discipline for Wellness series, brought to you by Shawna Doyle, wife and mom of two little girls, and the founder of Designer Discipline LLC, a lifestyle consulting company which centers on wellness; including aspects of nutrition, goal setting, and family work-life balance.
