This week's show is special I was blessed to celebrate my 50th birthday last week with several close friends and family members. THANK YOU to every one of you in my extended family who sent me kind wishes as well. This was a big one for me and got me thinking back to the people and events that have shaped my life and INSPIRED me over the years. I’ve told stories about these things before, but I wanted to share some of them with you again, not only because they mean a lot to me, but because I think you’ll get a lot out of them too. On the show this week, I'm honored to share some of my favorites with you . I hope they inspire you, and make a huge impact on your life as they did on mine I love telling the funny story about a little kid named Ray Ray and what he taught me about standing up for myself. I also want you to hear how my first job after college taking care of a bunch of boys in a group foster home changed my life forever. I’ve also pulled out a couple of stories that will tell you why HELPING YOU is so important to me and why I want you to break through the things that limit you so that you can lead a BLISSFUL life, too. Most of all, I want you to know my dad better and the example he set by quietly SERVING and HELPING others after conquering alcoholism. Even though he passed earlier this year, the impacts he had on me and everyone he reached out to are going to echo for ETERNITY. I miss him every day. ENJOY this week's episode!
