I would like to apologize for being a day late with the blog. We are so far from tech savvy at this part of our journey, that it’s common that we run into problems. We apologize for that. Thanks for going along on this journey with us.

As far as news of You’re Amazing, our tech guru, Shane, is working on ads for Facebook and Amazon. We are extremely happy that finally we are going to have some ads. My conversation with Shari and Jann Simmons on their Which Way? podcast is going to be aired on this Friday, January 10, 2020. This is the first of the podcasts that I have been on to be aired and we are quite excited. So, check it out. I think you’ll really enjoy the show and at the same time find it a wonderful podcast which has a lot of information that you can use to help the friends and loved ones in your life. We don’t have the link to the show yet, we will let you know next week.

I hope everybody had a great holiday season. For me personally, there is a lot of stress during the holiday season. It is a time of reflection. You have to do all the regular stuff plus tons more, and you’re exhausted. The only reason I tell you this is because I know a lot of us feel this way. I want you to know you’re normal and to feel like you’re not normal is normal.

You’re Amazing And I’ll Prove It! One more week until Christmas. We will enjoy seeing our grandkids open the presents under their trees. We hope everyone has an Amazing holiday. If you know someone who is struggling with their self-esteem, You’re Amazing would be an awesome gift. It is available on Amazon.

I was a guest on the Beyond Risk and Back podcast with Aaron Huey from Fire Mountain Residential Treatment Center last Friday. Aaron is dedicated to helping young people in crisis and I hope my appearance on his show helped him help his listeners. We don’t have an air date yet. We will let everyone know once it is scheduled.

I know this is a busy time of year for everyone. Linda and I have been busy with Christmas also. She has been making cookies and other treats and I am making some gifts, which are pretty cool. I will put a photo of them on Facebook after Christmas. Also our granddaughter is performing in The Nutcracker this weekend.

In addition to the busyness of Christmas, I am excited to have two podcast interviews scheduled before Christmas. This Friday, I am being interviewed by Aaron Huey, Host of Beyond Risk and Back, a podcast designed to support parents, teachers, and clinicians who work with kids at risk. Next Friday, I am being interviewed on Which Way?, a podcast which is hosted by Shari Simmons. Shari has studied resiliency and the enduring self-sabotaging thoughts that are often the result of trauma and also celebrates just how resilient the human spirit is. Both Aaron and Shari are affiliated with the Fire Mountain Residential Treatment Center in the Colorado Rockies where troubled teens are taught the tools to allow them the opportunity to transform into more responsible, thoughtful, and confident teens. Aaron is the co-founder and president of Fire Mountain and Shari is the Executive Director.

Hey everyone, hope you had a great Thanksgiving. We spent our Thanksgiving with our son, David and his awesome family. David’s five-year-old son, Eden, asked me why grandparents are so slow. We had an awesome time.

We want to also thank all of the people who are buying You’re Amazing And I’ll Prove It! It is really cool to see my book selling and helping a lot of people, specifically teens and tweens. I know this is a tough time of year, so if you know of anyone who is struggling with accepting themselves, please consider giving them You’re Amazing. Not because I wrote it, but because of what people are saying about how it helped their loved one.
