I’ve had a very busy summer. I just returned from Orlando, Florida, where Getting Through What You Can’t Get Over and Death Defied, Life Defined: A Miracle Man’s Memoir, my last two titles, both medaled in their respective categories. When each of their names were called, the little girl inside of me who had secretly dreamed of writing a book, teared up, at the honor from my professional peers.
The weight of the medal as it was gingerly placed around my neck, surprised me. But it was the private compliments I received from individual judges after the banquet that thrilled me the most, allowing me to know I had achieved my mission to encourage and inspire readers. When I dreamed about writing in my childhood, my reason wasn’t fame or fortune, it was to give to others what I had received from so many authors who motivated me through countless books I’d read.
And now, I’m preparing to do something I didn’t dream, never imagined, and until recently, wouldn’t have dared to try. Launch day is almost here for Fresh Faith Inspirations, my new podcast/online radio show.
Once again, my reason has nothing to do with money or accolades, but for the benefit I desire more than any other — to pass on to others what I’ve first received from someone else. Encouragement, motivation, hope, healing, and inspiration. To make a difference in the life of another, to deepen my purpose, and live with meaning. To be a good and faithful servant by answering the call placed upon me before I took my first breath.
